Hints of Chamomile tea develop into freshly picked honeysuckle with baked brioche notes. Apricot kernels surrounded by flavours of pink grapefruit and lemon pith. Australian lemon myrtle expressions layer upon grounding flavours like crystallised ginger and poached quince.
This wine is a textural experience; it’s less about overwhelming you with explosions of fruit – more about exercising restraint and subtlety on the palate.
The complexity of Chenin. Floral earthiness to it, like paper daisies or a freshly brewed cup of chamomile tea with honey but it’s juxtaposed with citrusy pink grapefruit notes. A dance between two lovers, exercising restraint and subtlety.
Bit of time in the glass gives it more of a robust maturity– but still earthy fruit characters like quince or baked apples. It’s complex and layered and finishes delightfully fresh.

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.
With soils packed with minerals and a range of altitudes and terroir, Beechworth is situated on the continental side of the Victorian Alps, setting the scene for warm, sunny days as well as cool nights, which temper any heat and produce wine grapes with natural elegance.
Beechworth is home to some of the best Chardonnay produced in Australia, along with other cool-climate varietals like Pinot Noir. A focus on small batch production lends a boutique air to Beechworth with winemakers being hands-on when it comes to every aspect of their vines and wines.
