It has a very complex nose with aromas of dried pear, field honey and wild flower with a hint of potpourri. The palate is full bodied with rich spicy pear flavours and excellent texture. An ideal food match would be sashimi tuna.
Vintage 2014 was a challenging one in the Yarra Valley. However, late setting and ripening varieties such as Marsanne fared better than early varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
This Marsanne was picked relatively late, in mid-March, to allow the fruit to achieve full flavour. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and the juice was 100% barrel fermented in old oak to minimise oak aromatics while building texture and flavour. The wine was aged on lees for 10 months to further enhance texture and palate weight.
Highbow Hill Vineyard is made up of 40 hectares of established vines planted on rolling hills just north of the Yarra Valley. The name Highbow Hill Vineyard is derived from the local landscape feature High Bow Hill, which is the dominant feature on the eastern boundary of the property.
Soils are sandy loam over clay and gravel over mudstone.
The long driveway meanders through the vines to the residence and provides uninterrupted views of the lake-sized dam and surrounding panorama.
These rare single vineyard wines are only released in the finest vintages as the best of the best from our carefully managed vineyards.
The labels each feature a collection of objects from the vineyard the wine was grown.
The landscape of Highbow Hill Vineyard features established vines planted on rolling hills. Eucalyptus and gum trees are widespread with a diverse range of soils ranging from sandy loam to yellow clays.
