From premium Victorian vineyard, harvested in the cool of night and gently pressed. At height, restricted growth and slow ripening lends itself to intensely flavoured fruit of rich complexity. Every Yarra Valley hillside offers its own nuances of sun exposure, soil, rainfall, even snowfall, and height. Grape varieties are matched to their ideal conditions, then tended with vigilance and precision at Yarra Burn's prized vineyard sites. Nothing is taken for granted, the idyllic microclimes exact a price, as every detail has to be just so. Each parcel of juice is further fined to guarantee structural elegance, an extended maturation on yeast lees infuses further complexity and builds character.
Crystal clear, gold hued, a fine persistent bead. Yarra Burn displays the distinct citrus and green apple characters, complemented with fresh yeasty brioche on the nose. The palate is bright and lively exhibiting citrus, toast and mushroom characters. This elegant and textural wine exhibits a rare depth of flavour and complexity.
