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.
Sitting at the southern end of the Yarra below Yarra Junction in the valley running north-south down to Gippsland. It receives increased warm air that travels down the valley, with increased air moisture content due to the surrounding forests and higher solar radiation. Grey/brown clay soils dominate, with full, rich aromatics and a supple structure that sits prominently on the front palate.
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.
