Colour Purple-Red
Nose Vibrant aromas of summer berries and blackcurrant exude from the glass with hints of spice, lavender and fresh herbs.
Palate A dynamic wine centred around red and black fruits dusted with wild herbs, pink peppercorn, black pepper and dark cacao. A soft, flowing wine that is full-flavoured yet delicate on the palate. It has a rippling core of fresh red and black fruits dusted with wild herbs, black pepper and dark cacao.
Food Pairing Pepper-crusted lamb

Yarra Valley
The Yarra Valley is a wine region known for producing outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region has become a leading wine tourism destination, popular for weekend trips as it is located only an hour’s drive north east of Melbourne.

The cool climate region has some of the oldest soils in the world, and produces terrific Chardonnays in the leaner, acid-driven style. Long gone are the days of excessively oaked and oily Chardonnays. Superb Pinot Noir is cultivated with tremendous results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and even Sparkling wines of premium quality are also worth seeking out.

Yarra Valley is the oldest wine region in Victoria with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Reg Egan founded the iconic Wantirna Estate in 1963, followed by Dr Bailey Carrodus in 1969 who founded equally lauded Yarra Yering in the foot of the Warramate Hills. Nowadays a fleet of new world wine makers and growers are making sure Yarra Valley stays at the forefront of Victorian wine production. Key wineries to look out for are Mayer, William Downie and Macforbes.

The region in 2009 suffered in the Black Saturday fires, with an estimated 25% of all production was impacted.

(2016 vintage) This is a lovely shiraz/syrah. Bold, spicy and beautiful. It offers plenty of everything: fruit, peppers, florals and cedar-spiced oak. Tannin has a real feel of finesse about it too. Its quality is sure; it will appeal to a wide range of preferences and people.
