Overview

Blackberry | Chocolate | Plum | Spice

Rob’s True Colours range of wines is approachable and instantly likeable, much like the man himself. The wines are produced using premium Yarra Valley fruit highlighting regional and varietal characters and reflecting the welcoming personality of the Winemaker. These are Rob Dolan’s True Colours.

“In contrast to the warm and compact growing season of 2016, Vintage 2017 saw a return to more traditional conditions. A cool and wet spring delayed budburst and flowering and consequently we had a later start to harvest in

early March. Some truly ideal weather followed with about three to four weeks of blue skies and temperatures in

the high 20’s with no heat spikes. The even temperatures, cool nights and long ripening period provided us with

some excellent fruit across all varieties.” Rob Dolan – Winemaker

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Rob Dolan has been making wine in the Yarra Valley for over 20 years. He has an outstanding winemaking record and has played a pivotal role in the evolution of the Yarra Valley.

Rob’s first experience in the Yarra Valley was as senior Winemaker at Yarra Ridge Winery, one of the success stories of the 90’s and the benchmark Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of its time. During this time Rob managed the entire Victorian Winemaking operation for Mildara Blass (Fosters).Rob went on to build two more contract winemaking ventures and in doing so launched two highly successful Yarra Valley brands – Sticks and Punt Road. (“Sticks” being Rob’s nickname as a premiership ruckman with Port Adelaide Football Club… don’t hold that against him!)

In 2011 Rob purchased the former Hardy’s Yarra Burn winery and launched the Rob Dolan range of wines.

Rob is a well known Yarra Valley identity (he’s hard to miss) and arguably one of the most experienced Winemaker in the region.
