At the entrance to the Valley floor, this subregion is low elevation with grey loam clay based soils. Ripping winds from the north slow transpiration in summer but the cooler overnight temperatures aid the plants ability to regulate after hot days making this classic valley floor area suitable for many varieties. Ironstone/mudstone is a consistently big influence, building full mid-palate structure with soft, melting tannins.
East facing within a smaller valley that runs from Yarra Junction to Poweltown in the south, featuring grey loam soils with underlying silt. Cooler winds roll off the Yarra River, with mountains directly to the north and south-west providing protection from hot afternoon sun in summer. Typically later ripening, thicker skins and higher acids are reflected in elegant structure with clean lines and powerful drive.
