The picturesque Yarra Valley vineyard was established in 1983 and is situated on 33 hectares at the base of the Christmas Hills, with 27 hectares of the property under vine.The Yarra Valley is considered a cool climate region, with longer ripening periods favourable to the regions iconic varietals – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet. These 3 varietals, along with Sauvignon Blanc were the first to be planted on the property in 1983/84. Over the course of the next 25 years a further 23 hectares of vines were planted, and included the addition of small parcels of Viognier and Petit Verdot. The staggered planting has provided a wide range of maturity in the vines and these variances can be highlighted within specific handcrafted parcels of wine.The gently sloping and undulating land of this “Yarra Floor” vineyard is moderately warmer than its Upper Yarra counterparts, and the predominately grey sandy loam soils over a clay base, provide a consistent nutritional base for the vines, producing wines of varietal intensity, together with complexity and elegance.
