Rosé continues to be a style we play with and this is no exception. This tiny blend is from our winery block and continues our exploration with this multi-faceted grape. Field of Rosés is savoury and spicy embraced by attractive red fruits.
A unique iteration of the Hugh, the 2018 Cabernets come from grey loam soils in Gruyere. The cool wet winter, followed by a hot growing season has yielded a plusher fruit profile that makes this wine quite approachable in its youth, but will also age elegantly. Reminiscent of classic old-world Cabernet, the 2018 Hugh sings with bright leafy aromatics, a silty tannin backbone and a savoury finish.
A very dry season for the Yarra, 2019 was low yielding but high quality. A cool change early in the harvest helped to retain freshness, although the vintage is apparent in the darker aromatics. Only a baby, the 2019 Healesville Syrah is still a little closed, with restrained fruits and fine chalky tannin structure that will carry it through to maturity.
Recognised across the Valley as a great season for Chardonnay, our 2020 Yarra Valley Chardonnay is zesty, pithy and bursting with crushed florals. Crunchy acidity and plenty of backbone makes this a perfect wine for lazy Sunday afternoons with half a dozen oysters.
