From the beginning Yeowarra Hill have endeavoured to produce quality wines by taking advantage of the verdant ground and fertile soil that gives the area a rich agricultural history.
There wines are produced from fruit grown solely in their vineyard, pruned to achieve excellent quality fruit in low yields. The hand-picked crop is made in small quantities in an attempt to reflect the elegant complexities and varietal character of the cool climate of the region. The quality fruit is further enhanced by the expertise of winemaker Lee Evans, Kurabana Estate.
The dedication to excellence in the vineyard and meticulous care and attention produced immediate results with their first vintage (2006) Chardonnay being awarded a medal at the 2007 Geelong Wine Show. With the 2007 Chardonnay backing up with a medal in the following year.
The James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 'highly recommended' the chardonnay saying it had great quality style and character, worthy of a place in any cellar.
