This best-known Yarra Burn range showcases varieties that are perfectly matched to vineyard conditions at selected Yarra Valley sites. Using the three classic varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this wine is blended to a consistency of style and has an elegance and complexity that is rare. Sourcing the fruit from the Upper Yarra Valley has been a key driver of the style and quality of this wine.
- VIC - Yarra Valley
A 46.6/44.8/8.6% blend sourced from the Yarra Valley. First tasted in Feb '10, this wine disgorged 27 months later in May '12. Pale straw-green, good mousse; has considerable elegance, finesse and length. The one query is the slightly elevated dosage, although I can't work out the rationale. Regardless, great value. Ratting 93 - Drink by 2016 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (APR/2013)
A serious sparkling wine, although not bottle-fermented; the flavours are of citrus and stone fruit, the latter almost sweet, the palate long, the balance very good. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
Crystal clear with a fine persistent bead and fresh lime green hue.
This wine displays the distinct lemon / lime characters of cold climate Chardonnay, with added complexity of white stone fruit and Pinot Noir characters coupled with yeast autolysis. Aged Chardonnay characters of toast, butter and mushroom are complemented by earthy truffle flavours of mature Pinot Noir.
This sparkling wine has an elegantly structured palate with great persistence of flavour with a soft, creamy texture and a fresh, natural acid finish.
Enjoy with fresh seafood and lighter poultry dishes.
