The Toolangi Vineyard in Dixon's Creek, established in 1995, is one of the Yarra Valley's hidden secrets. The soils are fine clay loam and the low yielding site produces wines with distinct character and a strong sense of place. Fruit for the estate Shiraz is sourced from clone PT23 vines in Blocks D and A. The grapes were hand harvested on the 26th of March and was naturally fermented with 10% whole bunches and 90% whole berries. It was then matured in French oak and spent 10 months on lees.

The 2021 vintage was a welcome return to ideal growing conditions in the Yarra Valley. The season was prolonged, with cool nights and warm days providing long and even ripening and excellent definition of flavour.

Reviews

“This is often something of a steal and it is again here. Peppery spice notes, sweet-sour red cherry characters, slips of darker berries and smoky oak. It’s a frisky red but it has just enough depth to give it a satisfying feel, and the spice notes have a bit of come-hither about them. Personally I’d buy/drink this in a heartbeat.”
92 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
“A vibrant crimson purple. Red-fruited with a gentle spice while the palate is light to medium bodied, with well-judged crunch. A steal, too, at this price and the perfect mid-week 'bistro' wine to enjoy at home.”
