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.
A stunning vintage with near perfect conditions during flowering and fruit set. Good rainfall over winter built strong reserves of soil moisture, and the long cool growing season allowed for slow and evening ripening across key varieties. The 2021 vintage was one of the very rare years where we saw both quality and quantity of fruit.
Pale lemon. Bright green apple, lemon pith and juice, jasmine and white peach on the nose. Slightly salty.
High acid, medium-light body, chalky phenolics. More crunchy white peach, lemon juice and pith on the palate. Green apple with bright squeaky clean acid gives focus and length complemented by a faint cream cheese lees note.
