    Scents of faint cherry, light raspberry, a whiff of tomato and bay leaf, just the faintest old spice cupboard note too. Succulent, crisp texture, flighty red cherry flavours, a splash of blood orange, a touch of bitterness in the best possible way and a long trail of cool, refreshing acidity follows. It’s no rosé but it’s a couple of evolutionary steps up the adaptation curve. This is excellent to drink, vibrant and bright, shapely and, curiously, quite refined in its feel.

    Producer

    Since meeting in the late 1990s while studying viticulture, Tom and Sally Belford had talked about making wine without the intensive energy inputs and additions that had become the norm in wine production. They started Bobar in 2010 to get away from “all the bullshit” that came with making wine in their part of the Yarra Valley.

    Region

    First planted with vines in 1838, the Yarra Valley is the birthplace of the Victorian wine industry. It ceased production in the fortified wine boom in the 1920s and planting began again in earnest in the 1960s with modern pioneers such as Dr Bailey Carrodus, Guill de Pury and Dr John Middleton paving the way for the Yarra Valley to become one of Australia’s premier wine growing regions today. Their Yarra Yering, Yeringberg and Mount Mary wineries remain regional heroes, firm favorites such as Coldstream Hills and new star wineries such as Oakridge and Giant Steps excel with stunning examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling are also no slouch in the region and the exciting new breed of wineries such as Bobar, Mac Forbes, Hoddles Creek, Salo, Timo Mayer, Thousand Candles and Proud Primary Produce are proof of the Yarra Valley’s diversity and understanding of place. Local Knowledge: The restaurant at Oakridge Wines is one of the finest regional dining experiences in the land…. Have a glass of 864 Chardonnay while you are there.

    I believe the mix is cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot in an 80/20 split respectively (some pinot noir makes its way in too, allegedly). And picked pretty early. And nothing added, including no sulphur. That being said, it’s not lacking flavour, though the colour technocrats might gawk at the pale garnet hue. I think it’s charming and cheery. It’s a very fresh feeling, breezy light red, but still holds structure and shape, which is in the mind’s eye of winemaker Tom Belford. You’ll get scents of faint cherry, light raspberry, a whiff of tomato and bay leaf, just the faintest old spice cupboard note too. Succulent, crisp texture, flighty red cherry flavours, a splash of blood orange, a touch of bitterness in the best possible way and a long trail of cool, refreshing acidity follows. It’s no rosé but it’s a couple of evolutionary steps up the adaptation curve. This is excellent to drink, vibrant and bright, shapely and, curiously, quite refined in its feel. A great expression of Yarra red wine here. So worthy.
