About Yarra Valley
Yarra Valley Facts
Yarra Valley northeast of Melbourne, also reasonably cool and moist, produces a high percentage of Australia's best Pinot Noirs, as well as some elegant, firmly structured examples of Cabernet Sauvignon, typically blended with other red Bordeaux varieties. The cooler climate and slow ripening of the grapes in Yarra Valley allow for wines with excellent flavor intensity and fine tannins. Yarra Valley also produces fresh, clean Viogniers that can represent the best value for that variety in the world.
