Grape Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Growing Region: Yarra Valley, Australia
Chief Winemaker: Steve Webber

Steve has an incredible understanding of the key elements in winemaking. He knows intuitively what his vineyards can produce, how each different varietal will respond, and how to express the best of both in a wine which will connect on some many occasions. Chardonnay adapts better than most varietals to its surrounds. But crafting a Chardonnay of this quality is not easy, and this wine has vibrantly generous aromas and flavours. 

 

Grape Varietal: 100% Carménère
Growing Region: Colchagua Valley, Chile
Owner / Winemaker: Aurelio Montes

Carménère is the legendary lost grape of Bordeaux, France. It was officially recognized by the Chilean Department of Agriculture as a distinct grape varietal in 1998. Carménère now thrives in the Colchagua Valley - where the carefully tended fruit for this wine has an appealing richness and real charm. Aurelio Montes has always maintained that - “80% of good wine comes from the vineyard and the other 20% from the cellar”.
