Yarra Valley, Australia
Within the larger region of Victoria, the Yarra Valley is host to small, passionate producers that make exceptional cool-climate wines from a bevy of different soils and topographies. Charles Smedley’s vineyards are situated in a particularly cool pocket of the region and the resulting wines are both elegant and flavourful. The style is reminiscent of Macon with ripe tree fruit alongside fresh, salty acids and just enough oak character to round out the profile. This drinks effortlessly…any time of day.
