Gladysdale vineyard, originally for sparkling though the clone is MV6. Some whole bunch in the mix too. One of the more mature vineyards in the Yarra, early 1980s planting. Wombat Creek sounds like something off a 1980s Australian soap opera.
Pretty, voluminous perfume, loaded with sweet red berry fruits, spiked with green herbs, undergrowth, briar, touch of truffle/mushroom. Silky in the palate, great volume of flavour, squeakiness through the finish, mouthwatering too. Has good concentration, mouth perfume even, floats through its long finish. Superb wine, delicious drinking. Drink 2018-2027.
