The Yarra Valley label is the entry into our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. ʻYarra Valleyʼ is a blend of declassified barrels from our grower vineyards and the Mac Forbes single vineyard sites. They represent a snapshot from across the valley and our vineyards. Generally, they can be enjoyed young but cellaring will reward with increased complexity.

Super perfumed, loads of violet, blackberry and a little smoky charcuterie reduction, classic cool(er) climate example. The palate has great intensity this year, lots of cassis and plum framed with grippy straight tannins, great acidity, really long in the mouth finishing a little savoury with blackberry leaf and red currants. An intense Yarra Syrah, with a little extra body and a lot of complexity. Great value, this too, won't be here for long.

We recommend serving this wine between 14-16 degrees.

A rather wet winter into a rather wet spring meant difficult flowering conditions (lowering yields) but big healthy green canopies, which our dry grown vineyards were very happy about. We had to be agile to hit the right picking windows, but were really happy with the fruit quality and the density of flavour in the resulting wines.

16 available.
