This wine has aromas of cherry and spicy oak with bright berry fruit flavours, silky tannin and a long finish.
2015 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. Mild conditions in spring allowed good fruit set and yields were about average. Continuing cool and mild conditions promoted excellent flavour development and retention of fine acid. Wines of 2015 will be remembered for their exceptional balance and cellaring potential.
The fruit was hand harvested in ideal cool, dry conditions in early March. Bunches were destemmed and the must was vinified in open fermenters with hand plunging twice daily. The wine was matured for 11 months in French oak barriques, about 40% new, from a selection of Burgundian coopers.
One of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions, the Yarra Valley encompasses such diverse topography that it can produce premium quality fruit in a range of grape varieties.
With its stunning hills and dales ranged before a backdrop of blue mountains, elevations vary greatly. The climate is Mediterranean with a maritime influence from Port Phillips.
The Collection series are a set of premium wines from hand-picked regions around the world – each crafted to reflect a supreme sense of place and exceptional character.
The labels each feature a unique photographed object collected from the region the wine was grown, designed to present a story of the region's distinct characteristics.
This rock was collected from the banks of the Yarra River which flows through the region and gives the Yarra Valley its name.
