Since its first vintage in 1985, Coldstream Hills has grown to be one of the Australia’s leading small wineries, with a reputation for producing an outstanding range of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot Varietal and Reserve wines. Situated in the cool and beautiful Yarra Valley, about one hour’s drive east of Melbourne, its steep, close-planted vineyards have become a signature of the region. Coldstream Hills maintains its small winery essence with most of the wine literally being “hand made”. The fruit is hand pruned and partially hand picked; the wine is made mainly using small open fermenters (of three to four tonnes capacity for the red wines, while the whites are principally barrel fermented). Winemaking techniques and philosophies haven’t changed with the growth in production either; all designed to produce elegant wines with a long finish. – Description from markomkc

    Grown at 1200' and aged in 50% new oak puncheons. From a "perfect" vintage. You but elegant. Would like to see what this is like in 5 years. Tasted at 2016 IPNC Master Class, Australia: Pinot noir in the Antipodes. Read More

  • Yes Emark, baseball is played here in Australia, and the left field is the same ... Hills were represented by Coldstream Hills and Shaw &Smith, respectively. Notably absent were Mornington Peninsula, Macedon, Geelong (?Too snobby or ?too short of wine to send up to Queensland.)Alas I didn't get to the Shiraz masterclass due to timetable clashes...

  • Just finished tasting Ballabourneen The Stuart 2013 Chardonnay (Australian Wine Selectors Hunter Valley Series January 2014 dozen), bottled under screwcap. Supposed to have a "round and subtle biscuity finish" Well the bottle I tasted was way to subtle for me I'm afraid! I think it is due to last week's tasting of the Tapanappa  2008 Tiers Picca...

  • Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2010


    Full of blackcurrant fruits on the nose, finely oaked on the palate, while releasing rich fruits on the aftertaste. Fine wine. Read More

  • Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2007


    My wine club did a Pinot Noir tasting this month. This was one of the recommended wines for the tasting, but our wine buyer was hesitant as Australia is not known for Pinot Noir. I poured it first, expecting it to be the worst of the 5 we tasted. WOW! This is one terrific Pinot! Very lush and flavorful, without a harsh finish like some Pino... Read More

  • Would definitely be interested in hearing what people think are the best wineries, and wines, in the Okanagan. Hopefully with an explanation why. Have a good friend going for an extended stay, based in Kelowna, in a month or so, and it'd be nice to be able to offer some pointers. She and her husband drink a lot of New Zealand sauvignon blanc,... Read More
