This wine is the marriage of two sites.
The Yarraloch vineyard sits high up on a ridge on the Warramate Hills looking east over the Yarra Valley. The vineyard is steep and the produces fruit that makes wine of vibrancy and verve.
Brown Brooke Estate is a 25-year-old vineyard on the border of Gruyere and Coldstream in the Yarra Valley. It sits on depleted clay loam at the edge of the valley floor. The fruit here produced wine of suppleness and generosity.
Together the two give us a wine that is both structured and generous. The rich opulent characters of Brown Brook marry with the fragrant and lifted spice of Yarraloch to produce a complex wine that is very engaging. Drinking beautifully now the wine will continue developing on this pathway for several more years.
