Sourced from a single block in Seville East in Upper Yarra, this wine is fermented wild and raised in stainless steel for freshness.
Light gold colour with a green tinge. A refreshing aromatic profile of soft white florals, pear, grapefruit pith, and creamy notes. A hint of lychee also pops into the mix. The palate has a flinty element which supports fruit flavours of pear, nectarine and orange cake. The wine displays a good balance of savoury and textural elements with a clean dry finish.
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.
