"I can’t remember what I had for dinner; all I can remember is the wine. It’s captivating. It has serious length too." Campbell Mattinson.
"In short it’s a class act. Everything is in sharp focus and yet it feels silky. It tastes of earth, undergrowth, red/black cherries and twiggy/sweet spice notes, though there’s a a garden aspect here too, like green succulent leaves, evident in its perfume. I can’t remember what I had for dinner; all I can remember is the wine. It’s captivating. It has serious length too." Rating 96 Points. Campbell Mattinson. The Wine Front.
"Sarah Crowe continues to find new features to the Yarra Yering wines. This is a subtle expression, with no thumping of drums, but is intensely pleasing. The bouquet fills all the senses with red fruits to the fore, the palate seamlessly taking on the theme. The length and balance mean this wine will seem ageless as the years go by. All this from a year in which many Yarra Valley pinot makers had to work hard." Rating: 97 Points. James Halliday. Halliday Wine Companion

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!
