PinotNoir / Yarra Valley / Victoria
The vision at TarraWarra has always been to produce wines of integrity amidst a pristine location of pastoral charm. It was a vision meant to be shared and TarraWarra can be proud of an engaging quality Pinot Noir that consistently receives widespread acclaim from enthusiasts and the national wine show circuit. Crafted with the same care and attention to detail as the estate flagship Reserve, parcels of Pinot Noir are hand picked and treated to a Burgundian style vinification, including cold maceration, malolactic and extravagant oak barrel ferments.

Chardonnay / Yarra Valley / Victoria
Out front of the TarraWarra property sits a quirky herd of metal sculptures by artist Jeff Thompson, permanently grazing under a stand of trees. From fruit grown to mature Yarra Valley vines, TarraWarra's estate Chardonnay is crafted in much the same way as their flagship Reserve, the addition of a tank fermented component contributes freshness. A beautifully made, golden Chardonnay wine which over delivers, with its clean precise palate, luxuriously leesy barrel ferment characters, textural creaminess and superior length.
 
From the outset our vision has been to produce wines of great quality and integrity amidst a location of beauty and welcome

TarraWarra Estate is a 400 hectare property on a prime site at the warm eastern end of the Yarra Valley in southern Victoria. The vineyard is planted on a north facing slope at approximately 100 metres elevation, and comprises 12 hectares of Chardonnay and 17 hectares of Pinot Noir, most of which was planted in 1983.

With twenty years of history and heritage, TarraWarra Estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay represent the vision of Marc and Eva Besen to produce premium wine crafted to bring out the particular aspects of each vintage while consistently concentrating on balancing structure and elegance.

Since the first vintage more than 20 years ago, TarraWarra Estate has established itself as one of Australia's great wine estates, with TarraWarra Estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir consistently receiving widespread acclaim and many prestigious Australian and international awards. TarraWarra Estate is a must-see destination where visitors are invited to reward their senses with the inspired combination of fine wines, delicious food and wonderful Australian art in a magnificent setting. These wines are of great character and depth, reflecting the outstanding quality of the 100% estate grown fruit from the unique microclimate of the site chosen specifically for these varieties.

TarraWarra has carved out a reputation as one of the Yarra's leading lights with an intensity and concentration rarely seen in that region. "In the hands of winemaker Clare Halloran, the style of TarraWarra wines has become more elegant and refined" -Peter Bourne, Gourmet Traveller

 TarraWarra

There are 23 different blocks at TarraWarra Estate, with most of these being less than one hectare, the majority of the Chardonnay was planted in 1983 and while the majority of the Pinot Noir was planted in 1984, additional plantings were made up until 1995. The majority of the vineyard is planted at a density of 2,200 vines per hectare with a very small area planted more densely at 3,000 vines per hectare. In recent years, older blocks of Chardonnay have been grafted over to Mendoza clone to add another dimension to the structure of the TarraWarra Estate Chardonnay.

The soil comprises a fairly thin layer of grey loam over clay. This soil composition leads to reduced vigour in the vines and the clay aids consistency by retaining water. As the majority of the vines are at least 20 years old, the fruit is consistently more concentrated and of a good acid balance with less fruit produced than from more vigorous younger vines. This significant vine age contributes noticeably to wines giving them more structure and greater balance.

While some blocks were planted trialling different trellising systems, the Estate is moving to all VSP trellis. This system has proved advantageous in not only growing the cordon relatively low to the earth to make the most of available radiant heat, but also in providing a significantly greater leaf canopy, important to shade fruit from sunburn and to improve ripening with increased leaf area/energy.
