Gulf Station is the original pastoral holding of the Bell family who settled in the Yarra Valley in 1864.
The site of the De Bortoli Winery was known as the “Summer Paddock”. It had a large dam, held green pasture throughout the dry summer months and was a cool place to be seen drinking premium Yarra Valley wine. The Gulf Station range of wines are made from both estate grown fruit and that of other low yielding, premium Yarra Valley vineyards.
Delicate palate showing varietal spice. Textured flavours balanced by crisp mineral acidity.
