Exceptional fruit quality from the low yielding ’19 Vintage. Our 2019 Yarra Valley Chardonnay is vibrant and versatile, driven by fresh citrus with a core of crunchy stone fruits. Perfectly paired with a picnic in the park with friends.
This older dry farmed vineyard was singing in 2012. A glorious growing season (the first season we were fully responsible for our key vineyards) with warm days and steady cool nights combined with good regular rain will have 2012 rated as an outstanding vintage.
The pinot in particular caught attention as a young wine for bright but balanced fruit with depth and wonderful structure. Now with 8 years age, the wine is more fine in structure, still some red fruit perfume intermingling with some wonderful tertiary characters of spicy plum and cherry. This could be described as palate staining. Decant 1 hour prior to allow wine to open up.
Yarra Junction is our coolest site located in the far south eastern end of the Yarra Valley. Fine gravelly, silty soils, this wine is full of heady perfume, fine long tannins and a depth of fruit due to the longer growing season.
