Halliday Wine Companion Awards, Jane Faulkner "Fragrant with so many spices, plus some toasty cedary oak too. A flush of ripe fruit works across the more medium-bodied palate offering a combo of rhubarb, cherries and pips plus chinotto tang. The tannins have some give and it's refreshing to the very last drop"

Sydney Morning Herald - Australia's Top 52 Wineries of 2020 "TarraWarra Estate - #28. Very fine chardonnays and pinot noirs, especially under the MDB, Reserve and single-block labels. TarraWarra has recently extended its range to elegant barbera, nebbiolo, shiraz and an exemplary roussanne marsanne viognier blend. The 2017 vintage is exceptional across the board. The merlot and rosé are also among the best money can buy."

Qwine "Delicious density has me licking my lips. Delightful drinking really. Dark plums and earthy goodness make a move early. Strawberries and dried herbs tuck in behind with a subtle nudge of cloves. Some chocolate can be seen too. A touch of red apple acidity and fine spices run long on a persistent finish."

Halliday Wine Companion “An elegant iteration of light, but very well balanced, Fragrant with so many spices, plus some toasty cedary oak too. A flush of ripe fruit works across the more medium-bodied palate offering a combo of rhubarb, cherries and pips plus chinotto tang. The tannins have some give and it's refreshing to the very last drop."

Wine Enthusiast "The Flagship wine from Tarrawarra Estate"

Stuart Knox, The Real Review "Cola, redcurrants and dry herb aromatics.....palate of red fruits and undergrowth notes."

The Winemaker “...characterised by vibrancy and opulence....lifted raspberry aromas, with a hint of earthiness and subtle oak. The flavours combine full fruit with fine long tannins, finishing with the elegance and finesse that is the hallmark of TarraWarra Pinot Noir. MV6, 114, 115 and D5V12 clones, hand-picked, chilled overnight, destemmed, twice-daily pump-overs, matured in French oak (10% new) for 10 months.

The Winemaker "The Estate range is grown and made with the same approach as the Reserve wines, are all handpicked and made with a focus on varietal expression.”

Established in 1983 by Marc Besen and wife Eva Besen, the 400-hectare TarraWarra is rated by James Halliday as “one of the top-tier wineries in the Yarra Valley”. TarraWarra Estate is best known for its exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

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.
