Overview

Sourced from hillside sloping vineyards in the Upper and Lower Yarra Valley, the grapes are pressed using gentle handling techniques. Coldstream Hills Chardonnay is barrel fermented and matured in French oak barrels for up to nine months prior to blending and bottling. The Upper Yarra Chardonnay generally provides attractive citrus characters, with mineral slate notes and length; the Lower Yarra is often fleshier in style with attractive white peach and quince characters. Blending of parcels from both regions produces wines of complexity, varietal definition and length.

Winery Profile

Established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday, Coldstream Hills is one of Australia’s most respected producers of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Situated in the cool and beautiful Yarra Valley, about one hour’s drive east of Melbourne, Coldstream Hills’ steep, close-planted vineyards have become a signature of the region.

Coldstream Hills maintains its small winery essence with the wines being hand-made, mainly using open fermenters for the red wines, while the white wines are barrel-fermented.

Inspired by Burgundian techniques, winemaker Andrew Fleming’s goal is to make wines that not only reflect the potential of the Yarra Valley, but demonstrate regional expression, finesse and length.
