Winemaker Notes

The wine is ruby garnet in color. On the nose, the wine is all about fresh strawberry, cherry andraspberry with a hint of toast and clove spice from the oak. The palate is well balanced, showing bright red fruits with creamy oak notes subtly sitting around the wine and seamlessly integrating with the fruit. Tannins are silky smooth and weave the palate together producing a wine that is fruit forward,complex and long.

The wine is drinking exquisitely now, and it will continue to improve with time in bottle for up to 7 years from vintage.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Supple and elegant, with polished, silky tannins forming the backdrop for a mix of dried rose petal, forest floor, wild strawberry and fresh cherry juice notes. Accents of matcha green tea and white pepper linger on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Medium garnet color; dried red fruit aroma, very good; medium bodied, richly textured on the palate; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; chalky flavors, ripe red fruit, chalk; medium finish. (Tasted: April 13, 2018, San Francisco, CA)
JS 91
James Suckling
Freshly picked cranberries, rose petals, caramelized orange peel and citrus. Medium body, fine tannins, a lovely serving of acidity and a tangy finish.

Helen & Joey Winery Video

Helen & Joey purchased an already established Yarra Valley Vineyard in 2010. Since then Helen, the female owner and operator, and her small team have worked tirelessly to farm the vines better to produce better fruit to make better wine. The results are paying off with estate wines showing remarkable Yarra Valley character. The cool growing conditions of the Yarra Valley produce wines with far more elegance, restraint and aromatics than normally associated with Australian wine.

Helen and Joey Estate is located in the Gruyere sub-district of the Yarra Valley, right at the base of the Warramate Ranges. Vineyards in this area are associated with classic cool climate varieties such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but also has a strong track regard of producing elegant but long lived reds from varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon.

Jamie McGlade is the viticulturist tasked with improving the vineyard and does so by building the vitality and health of the soils and vines alike. The end objective is to achieve a quality of fruit that requires a minimum of intervention in the winery. Jamie has previously managed renowned Yarra Valley vineyards such as, Mount Mary and Yering Station.

Our senior winemaker is Meg Brodtmann MW. Meg was the first Australian born female to be admitted to the Institute of Masters of Wine. Her focus is on making truly delicious wines that express the elegance, restraint and perfumed character of the Yarra Valley.

Interventions and manipulations are kept to a minimum. Meg is one of the female winemakers that founded Yarra Valley Women of Wine.

Helen and Joey Estate is proudly family owned and operated.
