A vibrant Victorian sparkler, sourced principally from fuly mature, slow ripening sites, a key driver to the exquisite styling and profound expression of fruit. The holy trinity of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier have been expertly fashioned into an elegantly effervescent Cuvée of structure and refinement. Crystal clear with delicate bead and rich golden hues, layered with stonefruit cherry characters and brimming with bready autolysis, Yarra Burn redefines the sophistication of Yarra Valley Pinot Chardonnay.
Yarra Burn were the first Yarra Valley winery ever to produce a sparkling wine and still leading the way. A generous and satisfying style crafted from the noble trio of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier, grown to some of the nation's finest vineyards, Yarra Burn derives additional complexity through the addition of aged reserve stocks from earlier vintages. A limited quantity is produced each year, crafted into an elite and enduring expression of Yarra Burn's signature finesse. Components are asembled into a consistency of style, elegance and complexity that's rare. Yarra Burn develops remarkable richness as the separate parts mature on yeast lees, followed by an extended term of bottle age.
TASTING NOTES
Crystal clear, straw hues, fine persistent bead. Displays the distinct lemon/ lime character of cold climate Chardonnay, white stonefruit notes, Pinot cherry and baked yeast autolysis. Aged Chardonnay toastyness, butter and mushrooms are complemented by savoury earthy Pinot truffle flavours. Yarra Burn has an elegantly structured palate, offering great persistence of flavour and soft, creamy textures before a fresh, natural acid finish.

About Yarra Burn Winery
In August 1975 David and Christine Fyffe purchased a property near Yarra Junction that has softly undulating good soil and fabulous views to Mt Donna Buang
In the spring that followed they erected makeshift houses to stay in while they planted vines on their days off from running Mayerling Cellars. Initial plantings were 2 acres each of pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and half an acre of gewrztraminer, which was fairly quickly replanted with merlot when it lost popularity. The original name Settlement Vineyards was already registered so they settled on Yarra Burn, as the property is located half way between the two small townships of Yarra Junction and Wesburn. Part time study in viticulture and oenology at Roseworthy and Charles Sturt and help from consultants contributed to Yarra Burn's success. In late 1977 the Fyffes sold their bottleshop to build a house and an estate winery at Yarra Burn. They were encouraged and assisted by their friends at Jean Jacques by the Sea in establishing an onsite restaurant. Yarra Burn»
