Winemaker Notes

Rich dark ruby red in colour, the Yarra Burn Cabernet Sauvignon displays classic tobacco leaf characters married with fruit aromas of darker plum and blackberry with hints of strawberry. The palate is quite savoury and complex with a fine elegant tannin structure. Ripe plum, and hints of spice are apparent on the palate. A rich vibrant wine displaying complex and generous tannins with a cool, long and silky finish. This wine will improve with careful cellaring for up to 6 years.

The Yarra Burn Cabernet marries superbly with savoury or lightly spicy dishes such as Italian sausages with fennel or coq au vin.

Yarra Burn
Yarra Burn winery is situated 37 miles north of Melbourne. Nestled below the Warburton Ranges, Yarra Burn benefits from cool breezes that sweep over the mountain peaks, and the afternoon sun that gently warms the valley. Together, these Burgundian climate conditions allow Yarra Burn to produce wines of varietal character, with the delicacy, elegance and intensity expected of the Yarra Valley.

Attention to detail is paramount at Yarra Burn, and all winemaking and viticultural techniques are constantly reviewed and improved. Drip irrigation, soil analysis and sophisticated trellis systems for canopy management all ensure the grapes being produced are of the highest quality. While the expertise and passion of the winemaking team guarantee the fruit will be crafted into distinctive wines of flair and flavor.

California

View all wine

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Pinot Gris/Grigio

View all wine

One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

In the Glass

Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

Perfect Pairings

Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secret

Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
