Welcome to Winephabet
Street Season 1 Episode 25 Y is Yarra Valley
Winephabet Street is a
monthly series where Lori Budd of Draceana Wines and I work our way
through the alphabet exploring wine and wine regions on letter at a
time. The show is live on the third Monday at 8pm and is free, but
you must register to attend. Put it on your calendar, pour yourself
a glass of wine and hang out with us.
In this episode, Lori
and I take you to the Yarra Valley located just outside Melbourne,
Australia, and Victoria’s first wine-growing district. It’s known
for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and one of the leading cool climate
grown regions of the world.
Learn more about the
Yarra Valley by listening to the podcast or watch the webinar

Yarra Valley Wine Tasting
For this episode I got
my hands on a 2016 Shoofly Pinot Noir. Shoofly was founded in 2003
by Ben Riggs. The fruit for this wine comes from the Yarra and King
Valley regions in Victoria. There was no oak used. The wine matured
on the lees for nine months and then was bottled.
The Pinot was plumish
in color, a bit of acidity. Flavors of cherry and spicy notes
especially on the finish. Not complex but enjoyable.
