A tiny parcel of Pinot Noir from the Nenagh Park vineyard, base of the Christmas Hills behind Yarra Glen. East facing, protected from summer’s brutal winds and the harshest of the afternoon sunshine. 15% Syrah from the new site for Bobar Syrah in the Dixon’s Creek valley, a few kilometres north of Yarra Glen. A lively young thing.
Tom and Sally Belford make the wines for Bobar as simply and naturally as possible in the beautiful Steels Creek region of the Yarra Valley. These are wines that are allowed to express fully their origins; the place where they came from, the season and the people that nurtured them, and also the fun that was had making them.
They work as sustainably and naturally as possible. The juices are not manipulated or altered in any way, the ferments are allowed to complete fully using the naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria, the wines are not heated or cooled at any stage and they are bottled without fining or filtration.
