A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – whole berry fermentation in open vessels followed by a 15 month maturation in French oak puncheons.
Local Vineyard Series
The Yarra Valley has three distinct geographic zones or sub-regions - lower warmer, middle cool and higher cooler sub-regions. We have matched particular varieties with the specific sites to give you outstanding examples of single vineyard wines.
This wine was sourced from the north-facing Oakridge vineyard sited in the grey alluvial loams of Coldstream.
A warm spring and mild summer has resulted in excellent crops and ideal harvesting conditions. The wines have outstanding depth of flavour and structure.
