Yarra Burn offers a consistency of style whilst offering elegance, grace and distinction to every glass. The classic Methode champenoise varietals are grown to highly specialized vineyards in the heights of the Yarra Valley and throughout Victoria, painstakingly husbanded to yield grapes exclusively for sparkling wines.
Fruit is harvested in the cool of night from premium Victorian vineyards, treated to a gentle pressing to ensure minimal extraction of phenolics. As a Rosé wine, particular attention is given to selection of Pinot Noir with more overt red berry fruit characters, thus ensuring its stylistic difference from white alternatives. Each parcel of juice is further fined to guarantee structural elegance. Extended maturation on yeast lees further builds the complexity and character of this wine. Yarra Burn pioneered sparkling winemaking in the Yarra Valley, and through the continued dedication of a highly awarded sparkling winemaking team, continues to reach brilliant heights.
In the early 1970’s, David and Christine Fyffe took a calculated risk and planted a small vineyard at Yarra Junction. After several years of persistence and some experimentation, the first wine was released in 1978. Five years later, David pioneered sparkling wine from this region, releasing a classic Pinot Noir sparkling from deliciously complex, Yarra Valley fruit. Its quality was evident, as it was Australia’s most expensive sparkling wine in 1983.
The Yarra Valley is Victoria’s oldest wine region and is now recognised as one of Australia’s most celebrated cool climates. Cooler than Bordeaux, and slightly warmer than Burgundy, the Upper Yarra is capable of producing some of Australia’s most sought-after sparkling wines.
Yarra Burn was the Yarra Valley's sparkling wine pioneer and its latest range is the best yet. Outstanding value is this vibrant pink beauty with a delicate lifted bouquet of rose petals and strawberries. The palate is soft, medium dry and rounded out with gentle flavours and a crisp, zippy finish. Widely available. Jeff Collerson, Daily Telegraph
There's a lot of the character and structure of the more expensive Yarra Burn Vintage bubblies in this affordable cuvee. Typical rose aromas of strawberries are counterbalanced with a fair bit of yeast-derived complexity. It's well put together and handy with or without food. Greg Duncan Powell, Sydney Morning Herald
