James Halliday Five Star Rating
Campbell Mattinson - "Everything is in excellent order....Bright and brooding at once. Strawberries and cherries, a stewy character, integrated spice, lipstick, an all-round firmness. It’s light in colour but there’s real power here."

In Dreams have won medals for both their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In Dreams source their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from three low yielding, premium quality vineyards. The vineyards are predominantly from the upper Yarra Valley due to the cooler micro climate that helps them capture the elegance and finesse of this noble variety.
In Dreams are focused on allowing the vineyards to express themselves in the resulting wines using traditional winemaking techniques such as small batch fermentation, wild yeast and the delicate use of French oak.
