Vintage Notes

“Vintage 2015 in the Yarra Valley proved to be one of the strongest in the past 25 years. We significantly increased our fruit intake to twenty two different vineyards across all sub-regions of the Valley. Spring was mild, allowing excellent fruit set and quality and vintage was cool and dry with perfect ripening and crop levels 10-20% above the average. The remarkable varietal flavours with balanced natural acidity were evident across all vineyard sites and will see the 2015 vintage as a benchmark year in the Yarra”.
