An evolution on the palate of immediate presence of wholemeal toasted muffins and lemon butter which broadens to mouth filling texture on the middle palate.

Viticultural Notes: Located within two kilometers of Rochford’s Hill Road Winery at Coldstream - 40kms east of Melbourne, the grapes for this wine come from the property formerly known as Briarty Hill and re-named “Isabella’s Vineyard” upon its purchase in December 2009. This vineyard is situated at the eastern end of the contour that is home to some of the districts most celebrated vineyards, all of which share Briarty Road addresses. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils combined with our thirty five year-old vines are at the heart of this wine.
