It has aromas of cherry and spicy oak, bright fruit flavours, silky tannin and a long finish.
Vintage 2016 was marked by warm and dry conditions and the Yarra Valley harvest was one of the earliest on record. It arrived in a hurry too, catching some vignerons by surprise; many were picking in early February, about a month earlier than the long-term average. Yields were low and the resulting wines have excellent fruit intensity.
The fruit was handpicked in early February. Bunches were destemmed and fermented in open fermenters with hand plunging. The wine was matured for 10 months in a mix of old and new French oak barrels.
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.
