We’re thrilled to once again earn ‘5 red stars’ in the Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2019 announced last night.

Thanks for the support of @winecompanion and all involved, and congratulations to all winners.

 

864 Single Block Release

2016 OAKRIDGE VINEYARD, CLOSE PLANTED BLOCK SYRAH
“Deeply coloured, has tremendous tenacity and length, and equally juicy dark fruits. Tannin and oak whisper in the background, but this is about the fruit purity and harmony in its beating heart.”
96 Points

2016 HAZELDENE VINEYARD, BLOCK 1 PINOT NOIR
“The spicy savoury bouquet and palate have resulted from perfectly balanced fruit, oak and tannin support. There is no chest-beating here, simply encouraging the Upper Yarra to express itself.”
95 Points

 

 

Local Vineyard Series

2016 WILLOWLAKE VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
“Willowlake is the oldest vineyard in the Upper Yarra, and one of the oldest in the entire Valley. This wine has vibrancy, an edge, giving it a mouthfeel of flavours firmly anchored on grapefruit.
Great success for the vintage.” (Limited Stock)

2016 BARKALA VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
“There is a very deliberate touch of funky complexity to the bouquet and the finish of the palate, stemming from the barrel fermentation on 100% solids juice. it’s accepted , indeed welcomed, by most judges and consumers.”

2016 HENK VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
“From a north-facing slope of red volcanic soil in Woori Yallock. 100% whole-berry open fermentation for 3 weeks, matured for 10 months in French oak. It all comes together very well, its red fruits peppered by studs of fruit spice and bramble. Good length and balance.”
96 Points

2017 OAKRIDGE MEUNIER
“It’s not deep or terribly intense, but as lighter bodied reds go this offers sensational drinking. Cranberry, strawberry and sweet red cherry flavours flow into woody anise, aromatic herbs and peppercorn, but it’s not the flavours themselves, it’s the ultrafine tannin, the liveliness, the downright succulence. Irresistible is the word .”

Over The Shoulder

2017 ROSÉ
“The innovative blend of 75% pinot noir, 16% pinot meunier and 9% pinot gris has proved to a brilliant success thanks to the attention to detail in the vinification. Wild strawberry flavours are on intimate terms with spicy, tangy acidity. Rosé doesn’t come better than this.”
95 Points

2017 PINOT NOIR
“There is a very deliberate touch of funky complexity to the bouquet and the finish of the palate, stemming from the barrel fermentation on 100% solids juice. it’s accepted , indeed welcomed, by most judges and consumers.”
