This wine is made from fruit grown on the Willowlake Vineyard in the small village of Gladysdale in the Upper Yarra Valley.
“A counterpoint to the Gruyere cuvee, hailing from the Lower Yarra; this, from the Upper. Wild-fermented, with a smidgeon more of new oak (30%). Vivid and transparent, with the cardamon, clove and mescal scents owing to a whack of whole-bunch, more apparent. Lacy, delicate, long and mellifluous, nevertheless. This has a seamless flow, an effusive energy; an immense drinkability.” ~ 92 points, Ned Goodwin, 2020 Halliday Wine Companion.
