“Vintage Notes “2013 was a warm, dry vintage in the Yarra Valley. Thankfully healthy winter rains meant the vineyards were prepared for any hot spells throughout the growing season. The main challenge was finding space in the winery because several varieties ripened at the same time. Fruit flavours were excellent and slightly more full bodied than the 2012’s. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are beautiful wines with balanced acidity and plenty of flavor. Dry reds look fantastic with excellent structure and length.” Rob Dolan – Winemaker
