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 DIAMOND VALLEY VINEYARDS

Langton’s Selections Diamond Valley White Label Pinot Noir Diamond Valley was established in 1976 by the Lance family. Since first release in 1982, the Pinot Noirs have enjoyed a loyal following among collectors. The business was recently acquired by Graeme Rathbone, the brother of Doug Rathbone, the owner of Yering station, Parker Coonawarra Estate, Mount Langi Ghiran and Xanadu. The wines are made by James Lance, which has meant continuity of winemaking philosophy. Much of the fruit is sourced form the Lance Family’s Vineyard. Vineyard management follows low input philosophy. Special attention has been given to canopy management and sun exposure. The White Label Pinot Noir is a classical style with plum/dark cherry characters, minerality and underlying savoury oak. The Blue Label Pinot Noir is made from locally grown fruit and is widely regarded as great value. The Lance family kept the home vineyard when they sold the Diamond Valley business.
