Payne’s Rise is a boutique winery based in the prestigious Upper Yarra Valley, specialising in small batch wines produced from carefully selected, estate-grown fruit from their vineyard in Seville. The ethos behind the vineyard is to produce classic, fruit-driven wines with a complexity that reflects the unique expression of their cool-climate Upper Yarra heritage. Wines are made by celebrated winemaker Franco d’Anna.
Elegant yet complex. Racy acidity, layers of flavour from stone to citrus. Grapefruit, white peach, lemon zest, crisp acidity, spice & subtle cedary oak. Juicy & vibrant, soft & flavoursome.
From the much in-demand Upper Yarra, a chardonnay with class and richness in fruit: ripe nectarine, white peach, grilled pineapple, fig. Expansive on the palate, building flavour and mouthfeel through the means of smart oak and brought into line with a nice ping of acidity.
