Since its first vintage in 1985, Coldstream Hills has built an enviable reputation for producing outstanding and distinctive wines that showcase the Yarra Valley.
Wines in the Coldstream Hills Yarra Valley range are defined by their elegance, length and complexity. Andrew Fleming's standards combined with a first-class winemaking pedigree produce a broad range of varieties and styles that are accessible in their value and approach.
Attractive and vibrant, fragrant cherry notes dominate the bouquet with nuances of nutmeg, clove and black olive also evident. Subtle French oak adds complexity and is supported by hints of vanilla pod and cocoa.
Medium bodied in style, the palate has classic hallmark Merlot suppleness and finishes with persistent chalky tannins. Ripe cherry, black olive and hints of Satsuma plum are complemented by an array of nutmeg, cinnamon and fivespice notes. French oak is evident in the background and is further enhanced by subtle nuances of vanilla pod and cocoa bean.
P.S. James Halliday maintains his connection to the winery by providing the photograph that adorns the new vintage label every year.
