Description

A reference point for Australian Sangiovese. Fully destemmed, this wine starts with a cold soak and is allowed to ferment naturally.  Sees around 16 months in French oak prior to bottling.

Delicious and varietal. Sour cherries, dark chocolate, a lick of tar through the tannins. Shows a little juiciness though overall a layered, complex and sophisticated wine.

Greenstone Vineyard / Heathcote/Yarra Valley, Vic

First Rate Sites And Viticulture – A Pinnacle Producer Of Victoria

Formerly Greenstone of Heathcote, Greenstone Vineyards began in 2003 as a 40 hectare property (20 Ha under vine) near the town of Heathcote in central Victoria. Planted principally to Shiraz and Sangiovese, this vineyard is unique in several ways, close planted to reduce individual vine yield, and planted (atypically for the region) east-west, providing shade for fruit and reducing disease pressure due to exposure to cleansing breezes. It is here the name Greenstone is derived, due to the copper infused basalt Cambrian soils of Heathcote.

A change of ownership in 2015 saw the acquisition and addition of a winery and vineyards in the Yarra Valley, the former site of Sticks/Yarra Ridge. This has provided a picturesque cellar door facility close to Melbourne, as well as plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and more. Production across the two sites is deceptively small, with the wines genuinely hand made and quality paramount.

From the get-go a first rate producer, the wine styles are across the board sophisticated, complex, and for want of a better descriptor, grown up – think fruit concentration with purity, texture, refinement and drive. Philosophy has always been to express well grown fruit from excellent sites, and with a broadening offering of wines , the future looks very bright for Greenstone.
