This wine was sourced from the noth-facing Willowlake Vineyard, sited in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale.
A warm, dry early season with ideal flowering conditions has resulted in excellent crops and strong varietal flavours.
A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – handpicking and whole bunch pressing directly to 500 litre French oak puncheons for a natural fermentation and a 10 month maturation on lees.
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.
A multi-vineyard, multi-variety blend comprising 81% Sauvignon (Guerin vineyard, Gladysdale) and 19% Semillon (Oakridge vineyard, Coldstream).
A wet spring followed by a very dry summer has resulted in very low crops. The result is wines that are concentrated and fully flavoured.
