Expert Reviews

A strong regional bouquet showing dark fruit and a touch of bay leaf spice; the tannins are quite fine, giving the palate a decidedly slippery aspect; quite forward and ready to go, but should age gracefully. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2010)

The Vineyard

The fruit for this wine is grown in our Willoughby Bridge Vineyard at Colbinabbin, at the northern end of the Heathcote wine region. Willoughby Bridge Vineyard is planted on the renowned Cambrian rich red dirt, one of the oldest soil types in Australia. Another warm and dry vintage gave us low yields of intensely complex fruit.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Shelmerdine family has a long history managing high quality vineyards in Victoria, from the Nagambie Lakes region to the Yarra Valley and Heathcote. Each of our estate vineyards is managed to produce sustainable, low yields for the highest quality possible.

The variety of climates and soil types not only creates a diverse range of wine styles, it requires careful and adaptive viticultural expertise, to bring forth the best from each vine. Hand pruning, hand picking and training all give the vineyard workers intimate knowledge of every slope, and every clone. As is often said, the best fertiliser is the vigneron's footstep.

For three generations the Shelmerdine family has been among Victoria’s most prominent grape growers. Our vision is to embrace the honesty of the Australian terroir – the rocks, the soils, and the rhythm of the seasons – which impart their own identity into the wines.

Shelmerdine has vineyards in both Heathcote and the Yarra Valley showcasing the best varieties most suited to each region.
