Viticultural Notes: Our Hill Road vineyard and winery is located at Coldstream, 40kms east of Melbourne in Victoria’s oldest grape growing region, the Yarra Valley. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils combined with our forty year-old vines are at the heart of this wine.
2017 was a return to a classic Yarra Valley growing season after several warm years, however we were blessed with perfect sunshine for the majority of the harvest period.
