The winemaking at Train Trak is a modern adaptation of traditional techniques. Barrel treatments in French oak and gentle plunging of open top ferments are old world techniques which ensure all the intense Yarra Valley flavours and characters are extracted. A state of the art temperature control and wholistic viticulture all contribute to the intensity and balance in the wine. Following destemming and the crush, fruit is treated to a warm fermentation followed by a spell of maceration to enhance flavours and build texture. Components are pressed off skins, settled and racked to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels for an extended maturation.
The first Train Trak vines were planted in the 1990s and nurtured thereafter by the superior viticultural practices of John Evans. The vineyard's name relates to a train track which runs through the property over a quaint trestle bridge. Built in the 1800s, it was an important link to the Yarra Valley and is still a significant landmark traversing the local vineyards and pasture. Parcels of intensely ripe hand picked, estate grown Yarra Glen grapes are crafted into an exceptionally balanced Cabernet wine with well integrated French oak and fine, drying tannins.
Deep ruby colour. Lifted bouquets of bramble and raspberry, mulberries and subtle vanilla oak. A fine and elegant palate, medium bodied and layered with dark fruit, a concentration of brambleberry and cassis over savoury briar and earth notes. Seamless balance, structure and length, over a course of silky, finely grained tannins which run the length of palate right to the long, lingering finish.

Situated right at the heart of the Yarra Valley, the Train Trak vineyards yield intensely flavoured wines, reflecting the exceptional grapegrowing conditions, rich soil and ideal elevation

The Yarra Valley is one of the most renowned wine regions in Australia. It is the birthplace of Victorian vineyards, where wine has been continuously produced for over a hundred years. Train Trak relates to the railtracks which run through the property over a quaint trestle bridge. The train line, built in the 1800s was an important link to the Yarra Valley and is still a significant landmark traversing the local vineyards and pasture.

 Train Trak

Train Trak is sited along the Healesville-Yarra Glen Rd, near the Yarra Glen Race Course. The Train Trak vineyards thrive under the Yara valley's cooler climes. In neighbouring Healesville for instance, the mean January temperature is just 19.4 degrees, lower than Bourdeaux or Burgundy in the same part of the growing season. Unless there is drought, the rain is quite constant throughout the year, with a peak in spring, annual rainfall is 910mm while in the growing season it is 400mm. There is always some threat of frost and hail, which can reduce yields, in spring and or summer.

The eighteen hectares vineyard sprouts north facing vines, planted to rich clay loam soils with a moderate and ideal fertility, with an average yield one and a half to three tones/ acre, depending on variety. The vines bare Chardonnay clones P58 and I10V3, Pinot Noir clones MV6 and D5V12, Shiraz clones PT23 and Cabernet Sauvignon clones PT23SA125, all of which are exclusively hand picked. The local cool climate produces a long ripening period, resulting in a full display of flavours and balanced acidity, harvest is usually carried out March to April.

The first estate vines were planted in 1995 and nurtured thereafter by the superior viticulture practices of John Evans. All wines are produced solely from estate grown hand picked grapes. Attention to vine site location, based on varietal preference, sophisticated trellis systems, canopy management and low cropping levels have resulted in exceptional wines, displaying intense varietal flavour and elegance. The winemaking reflects modern adaptations of traditional techniques, such as barrel fermentation in French oak, and gentle plunging of open top fermentors, ensuring all the intense cool climate flavours and colours are extracted.
