"They turn out nice wines at TarraWarra." Gary Walsh"...one of the region’s best producers" Campbell Mattinson"TarraWarra is, and always has been, one of the top-tier wineries in the Yarra Valley." James Halliday.
"Medium red to brick-red colour. The bouquet is all about chocolate, vanilla, toasty barrel and smoked meat aromas. It's quite complex and charming, and there is plenty of pinot fruit in evidence. The palate is fresh and enlivened by its acidity, the tannins fine, soft and persuasive, the aftertaste satisfying and charming. This is an interesting and utterly charming style." Huon Hooke
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!
