"The estate dry-grown vines, planted '69, are among the oldest in the Yarra Valley, hand-picked, chilled, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French oak (30% new), no mlf, matured for 10 months. There's something about the Yarra Yering site that always delivers richer wine than any other in the Valley. Of course, vine age is exceptional, as is the gentle north-facing slope, and this also imparts a unique honeyed richness. Lest you think it's all too much, wait for the lovely citrussy acidity that lingers long after the wine has been swallowed."


James Halliday Wine Companion, July 2018


"Bright & complex nose of blossom, stonefruit, candied figs & lemongrass with subtle background oak. Generosity of stonefruits flavours give fruit volume and weight to the palate. A ginger cream spice and texture lending weight with gentle vanillin oak and a fine tannin framework."
