THE VARIETY

Australian Blends

The art of wine blending is purely for the purpose of creating a more complex and flavourful wine. It can enhance the aromas, texture, body, finish, and colour; Merlot can help soften Cabernet’s tannins; Syrah can give lift and body to a Pinot. In many regions blending is a tradition, as it is in the greats of Bordeaux and Rhône. Australia is no different, with a tradition of blending going back to the earliest days of the Australian wine industry. 
THE REGION

Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley was Victoria's first wine growing district with a history stretching back 170 years. Today the region is recognised as one of Australia's foremost cool climate regions. Such a climate, coupled with sandy loam and rocky clay sub-soil, the region makes classic styles from a wide range of varieties, like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.
