1 x In Dreams Chardonnay 2020 ~ Yarra Valley, Australia

Silver 93/100 Campbell Mattinson (2016 vintage)
James Halliday Five Star Rating (2016 vintage)
Handcrafted, micro-winery (2016 vintage)

Campbell Mattinson "Lots going on and the volume to carry it. Wood smoke, preserved lemons, nougat, and roasted nuts, a gun smoke character too. Pears, tinned. Oatmeal. It's lively, expressive and textural, the finish satisfying. Nothing at all wimpy; it's a mouthful of flavour."

Swiss born head winemaker, Nina Stocker is the daughter of eminent wine scientist Dr John Stocker. Nina was born and raised in a small town on the border of the Alsace wine region in Switzerland and it was her family’s involvement in the local village vineyard which paved the way for her future career as a Winemaker.

Nina has worked vintages in McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley, Barolo (Italy), Rhone Valley (France), Alentejo (Portugal), and New Zealand.

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.

James Halliday Five Star Rating (2017 vintage)

Handcrafted micro-winery

Andrew Graham “This In Dreams Pinot Noir 2021 is exactly what a reasonably affordable Pinot should be too – bright, light, and driven by lucid red fruit with just a lick of oak. Anthony Fikkers sure knows how to deliver restraint and delicacy. Gentle, generous enough and vibrant drinking – the In Dreams Pinot’s got ‘bottle emptying’ all over it "."

Campbell Mattinson "It gets the balance right between elegance/finesse and having enough flesh to satisfy. It just feels right. Strawberry and stewed cherry flavours with sweet spice, woodsmoke and (modest) deli meat. It’s lifted and perfumed, especially once it’s had a chance to breathe, and its fine-grained tannin too has been managed to perfection. So it sucks you straight in but it then has the structure and form to impress beyond the immediate."

Philip Rich "A light brick red. Cranberries and red fruits together with dried strawberries and a gentle sage-like herbal fragrance. A lighter-framed wine with bright, crunchy acidity and fine tannins." (2020 vintage)

Jane Faulkner "Maraschino cherries, stewed rhubarb dotted with anise and dried herbs. It's not a big wine, even if the tannins are a little chewy and grippy, as there's bright acidity keeping it afloat." (2019 vintage)

The Winemaker "On the nose there’s plums, wild strawberry, bramble bush and a hint of graphite from the whole bunch - all with an underlying character of freshly turned earth. Good concentration on the front palate, with focused drive through to the finish; the stalk influence knits the palate into a silky, seamless journey. Flavours of wild raspberry and a lick of sweet flinty oak."

James Halliday "A very good pinot that has taken what the vintage offered with both hands. Bright hue; the palate has whole bunch subtitles woven through from start to finish, giving the wine a fluid line, not the stop-start nature of some whole bunch treatment." (2017 vintage)

The Wine Front "Wheaty, spicy, a little smoky and firm in structure, brooding even. Red fruits, light chalky texture, bony but flavoursome, drives through the mouth and finishes dry and long. Savoury style, and quite serious, yet fun to drink." (2017 vintage)

Toni Paterson "Liqueur cherry aromatics with a thread of herb. Ripe flavours with very bright acidity. Very good depth and the flavours fan out on the finish. Needs a lot of air to show its true colours" (2017 vintage)

Huon Hooke "Medium red colour with the faintest purple tinge. The bouquet is foresty and fusty with dried herb, dried flower aromas and suggestions of whole-bunch ferment. The wine is tight and nervy on the palate, bright and piercing, with light but firm tannins." (2017 vintage)

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." (2016 vintage)

James Halliday "This is a very attractive pinot, made with exceptional attention to detail." (2015 vintage)

Sens Wine "The palate is inviting and pretty, with integrated fruit and silky oak tannins supporting vibrant fruit flavours and earthy spice....full of bright brambly fruits and red currents, followed by more complex savoury undernotes of sautéed mushrooms. The acidity in this wine balances the palate and suggests this wine will age well for up to 8 years." (2015 vintage)

James Halliday "Outstanding winery capable of producing wines of very high quality"

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.

The Yarra Valley is a well-respected Australian wine region which occupies the eastern half of the Port Phillip viticultural zone in the diminutive state of Victoria. At complete odds with the usual, hot and dry Shiraz-growing image of Australia, Yarra Valley is best known for its bright, complex wines made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, now produced in wine regions all over the world, including western Germany, northern Italy, Chile, South Africa, Australia and, perhaps most notably, California, Oregon and New Zealand.

The essence of Pinot Noir wine is its aroma of strawberry and cherry (fresh red cherries in lighter wines and stewed black cherries in weightier examples), underpinned in the most complex examples by hints of forest floor. Well-built Pinot Noirs, particularly from warmer harvests, also exhibit notes of leather and violets, sometimes approaching the flavor spectrum of Syrah.
