More Information

While this may have that "export looking name", this is a wine that should be sold in Australia, the quality is outstsanding.  And it should be, the producer is lead by a 1st class team.  The owner of the winery is James Zhou, who has worked with Grant Burge, Philip Shaw, Bass Phillip, Craiglee and Vinea Marson.  It was made by Chris Lawrence, whom spent 4 years working under Mario Marson (Mario's the guy that made Mount Mary for a decade).  The winery has a 4 star rating from James Halliday and it's a brand that we've advertised before with great success.

This wine was made for the export market, but due to the large tariffs imposed by China, it's staying in Australia and if you read the review by Sam Kim below, it really is our lucky day.

"Complex and nicely lifted, the bouquet shows ripe plum, cherry, toasted spice and dried herb characters, leading to a fruity palate that’s smooth and rounded.  The wine offers appealing juicy flavours with chalky tannins, making it immediately drinkable."  Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley

Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
