95 Points - James Halliday

This is Wickhams Road's twin playing games with you, for there is that little bit more of every facet of Wickhams Road present in this wine, even its colour is that little bit greener. It's the extra dimension of the faintly reductive aftertaste that draws me back for more.

92 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Winefront

White peach, custard powder, more spritely stuff like lemon zest and green olive, perhaps a touch of spice. Light and fresh, some lactic/cheese flavour and stalks, with fine acidity and chalk dust texture, and a savoury finish of good length. It’s a good release, though perhaps a bit different in style this vintage.

Region

Located just east of Melbourne in Victoria and surrounding the Yarra River, Yarra Valley enjoys a mix of influences both mediterranean and continental with two main soil types including the bright red, fertile, volcanic soil found mainly around Seville. Yarra Valley has a climate slightly cooler than Bordeaux enabling a range of grapes from Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon and Semillon to Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Mourvedre, Viognier and Roussanne, as well as many others. This enables a range of wine styles to be produced here evident with producers such as Yarra Yerring who create several outstanding Bordeaux and Rhone style blends. For their Eileen Hardy Pinot Noir, Hardys source fruit from both Tasmania and Yarra Valley, whilst Jamsheed focus on high quality Rhone varieties and Mayer produces highly complex Pinot Noir from whole bunch pressing.
