Vintage Details

The Yarra Valley had good winter rainfall, giving a great start to the spring growing season, which was very dry and warm. This pattern of weather continued right through summer and harvest was the earliest ever here at Gembrook Hill.  

All our vintage 2013 wines are excellent, showing great personality and concentration of flavour.

2011 Blanc de Blancs

Nougat, almond-meal, meringue aromas, blending freshness with complexity of character. Lemon-zesty acidity and wonderful balance.

2011 Gembrook Hill Blanc de Blancs 

“An outstanding aperitif style with great flavour and character. Montélimar nougat, almond meal, meringue aromas, then a lemon zest palate with bouncy acidity. The whole thing is very refreshing as well as complex. Another great 2011 bubbly."
