It can successfully be argued that nobody knows fine wine like investment bankers, YarraLoch's Stephen Wood is a case in point. He intuitively understood that unique microclimes are suited to different wine grapes and established his operations astride three unique sub regions of the Yarra Valley. Unashamedly inspired by the great wines of Europe, the singular focus of YarraLoch is to create world class Yarra Valley wines which are distinguished by their elegance, balance and complexity. Arneis is vinified through a mix of wild indigenous barrel ferments and inoculated tank components, a portion remains on oak for six months to balance the naturally high acid levels and promote palate richness.
The Italians named the variety Arneis because it means little rascal, a difficult grape to manage in the vineyard and rarely cultivated in great amounts. Mostly it is used with Nebbiolo in the same way as Viognier is added to Shiraz, to soften the palate, to enhance and to pefume. Within Australia, usually grown to the cooler vineyards of Victoria, it has finally found it's niche as a pure varietal wine. YarraLoch make a tight and elegant style, offering restrained ripe lemon and herb notes up front, light and fresh on the palate, mineral and crisp.
Light straw hue. Tight and elegant, showing restrained ripe lemon and hints of herb. Traditionally fresh, bright and fruity with characters of pear, apple and almond. The palate is light, fresh, crisp and minerally. It has flavours of lemon, green apple and herbs with crisp steely acid and a dry finish. A sophisticated alternative to simpler, more popular table whites, ideal with oysters, fresh seafood, olives and antipasto.

At YarraLoch the vineyards are managed with the aim of producing the best wines, made to the highest level of care, the most exacting standards and attention to detail. Australian vineyards typically grow all their grape varieties on the same site. They might do one or two good wines but the rest are ordinary. You need to suit the variety to the site. YarraLoch's Stephen Wood intuitively understood that unique microclimes are suited to different wine grapes and established his operations astride three unique sub regions of the Yarra Valley.

He identified terroirs that suited the wines he wanted to make. The coldest is Whittlesea, where he grows chardonnay, merlot and shiraz, in the hope it will give him the peppery Northern Rhone-style fruit. The hottest is Kangaroo Ground, between Eltham and Tullamarine, where he grows cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. Between the two, climatically, is Coldstream, where YarraLoch grows 4¬Ĺ hectares of pinot noir and chardonnay on a steep, north-facing slope.
