Wombat Creek Vineyard is the highest altitude vineyard in the Yarra
Valley, making it an ideal location for the production of extreme cool climate
wines. The vineyard was originally planted in 1988 with the intention of
producing base wine for sparkling production but over the years has been
gradually transitioned to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for table wine. The
underlying ferrous (red) based volcanic soil and rock produce a distinctively
soft yet long and firm palate that contrasts with the finer palates seen from
the nearby Applejack Vineyard (basalt based volcanic).
