Toolangi has taken a turn since the new owners have come on board. The wines use to be full of winemaking prowess - rich, textured, complex and fairly decadent but still balanced by that lovely Yarra Valley acidity. Since the change in ownership, the wine style has changed too and I think it's a real positive step in the right direction. The wines are stripped back to show a wine of pruity and fruit expression while still maintaining complexity. It;s all just in a different way now. It's a lighter bodied Chardonnay of citrus and white peach with really good feel through the mid-palate that drives through to the mineral finish that lingers forever. Toolangi should be proud, this is a quality Chardonnay and it doesn't cost the world. Happy days! - Chris L

Details

Located in the Yarra Valley approximately one hour north east of Melbourne at Dixon’s Creek, Toolangi Vineyards was named due to its position adjacent to the picturesque Toolangi State Forest. Initially purchased as a cattle grazing property in early 1995 – the first vines were planted in that December. Since 1995 further plantings have progressively occurred, with the property now being fully planted with some thirteen hectares under vine.

Toolangi’s vineyard site is ideally suited to the cultivation of high quality grapes as it is well drained with gentle slopes, all with a coveted north-easterly orientation. The soil is predominantly clay, covered by a thin layer of topsoil of shale and stone. Over the past 20 years the Yarra Valley has developed an enviable reputation for its wines, particularly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. At Toolangi these classic varieties have been the focus along with Shiraz. Our yields are restricted to no more than 2.5 tonnes per acre in order to maximise quality. Heavy pruning and green harvesting are used to reduce the naturally higher yields that the Yarra Valley climate can produce. Lower yields result in fruit that has more flavours and complexities which enables the production of our premium quality wine.

The Yarra Valley's normally good rainfall is supplemented as required by drip irrigation during the growing season. This helps to ensure the vines avoid stress allowing for the production of premium fruit.

Our aim is to produce outstanding wines, a process which begins in the vineyard.
