A blend of 40% Roussanne, 35% Marsanne, and 25% Chardonnay from the Tallarook district of the Upper Goulburn, Central Victoria. This is old fruit growin’ country, a high(ish) altitude region a one-and-a-half hour drive north from Melbourne. Grapes have been grown here since the 1960s. The Dabyminga site is granite, hornfels and quartz across a tapestry of aspects – a very beautiful site with sheer suitability to Rhone varietals. The vineyard is on way to being organically certified.
These Rhone varietals are particularly tasty from up here. Hand picked, whole bunch pressed, wild yeast fermented in French oak barriques (20% new). Batonage for the first 4 months, then left on lees for a further 8 months. Racked, blended and bottled. The style is the bright, fresh aromatic – with some depth of flavor and layers of texture building now with a few years of bottle age.
