Sublime Yarra fruit from the ’18 vintage.
Sitting behind the Waramate hills, this area encompasses both red volcanic and grey loam soils making it slightly more complicated to pinpoint a clear identity of this subregion. The undulating hills provide protection from the drier winds, the rainfall is slightly higher and the perfume, weight and structure appears more dense and effortless, pulling through seamlessly to the back palate.
What a great vintage for pinot! A long dry summer meant tiny berries packed full of flavour, and with a deep colour, heady florals and a dark, bold fruit profile, our 2019 Yarra Valley Pinot Noir punches well above its weight. Think bramble, black cherry and spice.
Our home block of Syrah keeps shining the light just how delicious Syrah can be when freshness and perfume are part of the DNA. Fine supple high tone and spicy fruits cascading through the subtle chalky tannins.
2017 is the third release of our ‘Hugh’ Merlot. We are overwhelmingly pleased that this wine shows so vividly the Gruyere site we know so well.
