Very pale copper with a bright vibrant pink hue. Deliciously elusive fresh fruits including strawberry and raspberry are supported by hints of fennel and white blossom of jasmine. The palate is savoury and refined with a supple creamy texture. The finish to the wine is superb, fresh fruits and a long chalky delicate phenolic edge that is trademark of this single vineyard wine.
Farm and Vineyard sits on the ancient mountain derived soils of the Gruyere sub-region in the heart of the Yarra Valley. The 150 hectare property was planted to 12.3 hectares of vines in 2000, with blocks ranging from 130 to 208m altitude. The six blocks were specifically chosen to suit each variety planted; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. Aspect, soil type and sun exposure are all maximised to produce wines of exceptional poise, balance and character. Winemaker Simon Steele ensures the vineyard and the wines are cared for by hand with great attention to detail and bottled on-site.
