Region Yarra Valley

Yarra Valley The Yarra Valley was first planted by the Ryrie brothers who explored a way through the Snowy Mountains to the Yarra Valley, planting grapes in 1838 just three years after the foundation of Melbourne. A wine industry (developed by Swiss Settlers particularly Hubert de Castella and Baron Guillaume de Pury in the 1850s) thrived during the gold rush era and heyday of the 19th century. However, the end of the gold rush brought the wine industry into decline and it was not until the 1970’s that the modern wine industry started up again. The region is probably Australia’s best-known cool-climate area, yet it is really a patchwork of meso-climates. This varied topography creates an incredible set of variables. Vineyards are planted on elevations of 50 to 400m on varying aspects and management programmes. The more exposed sites are subject to severe spring frosts and winds. Overall, the area experiences a relatively high rainfall pattern and is known for its temperature extremes

Overall, the area experiences a relatively high rainfall pattern and is known for its temperature extremes during ripening. Site selection is crucial, with the best vineyards often located where the original vines were once planted, generally on sandy clay loams and gravels. The Yarra Valley is well known for high quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Blends with Shiraz increasingly garnering attention. Sparkling wine production is also extremely important, with many of Australia’s finest examples produced in the region.

Winery TARRAWARRA ESTATE

Langton’s Selections Tarrawarra Chardonnay, Tarrawarra Pinot Noir Tarrawarra is located at the eastern end of the Yarra Valley near Healesville. Established in 1983 by Marc and Eva Besen, this winery has emerged as one of the region’s important producers. The vineyards are located on grey/brown clay loams with relatively (and ideal) low fertility on northeast to northwest aspects in relatively sheltered and warm sites. There are 23 individual blocks mostly planted at around 2200 vines/hectare. The fruit is triaged and handled separately. The Chardonnay is batch vinified in the classic Burgundian manner with whole bunch pressing, barrel fermentation, battonage and maturation in French oak. The Pinot Noir, which is some of the earliest ripening in the Yarra Valley, is a blend of the finest blocks. The wine is open fermented in three tonne pot fermenters and matured in small French oak barriques comprising 25% new, the rest one and two year old. Tarrawarra is making s

Tarrawarra is making some excellent wines and is an emerging producer of good Pinot Noir that exhibits a cherry/strawberry aroma and a fleshy, nicely concentrated palate. Clare Halloran is one of Australia’s most gifted wine makers. The wines are bloody good but Tarrawarra only has a moderate presence on the Australian secondary wine market. Tarrawarra produces a range of wines under the Tin Cows label, named after a herd of tin cow sculptures loitering under a stand of trees on the driveway up to the winery. It also produces a kosher wine under the Kidron label. The Art Gallery has one of the best regional collections in Australia. That alone is worth the visit. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
