Cellar Door


Named after an historical surveyor’s geographic marker overlooking our vineyard, Glen Garvald wines represent our varietal and replanting response to climate change.

Each wine is a product of uncompromised craftsmanship, using fruit exclusively sourced from our Maroondah Highway vineyard. These wines are unbound by recent convention. Instead, using varietals hitherto uncommon to the region and a marriage of new and old techniques and exciting blends, Glen Garvald represents our very own historical marker for the future of modern winemaking in the Yarra Valley.

The Glen Garvald range is available exclusive for our members to purchase online. If you are not currently a member, sign up today.

Marsanne Roussanne
This wine represents the realisation of a 13-year long process of development, from inspiration to ideation to actualization of a dream, triggered by our winemaker working the 2006 vintage at the incomparable Domaine Jean-Louis Chave in the Hermitage appellation of France’s northern Rhône Valley. Unfurling aromas of ginger, makrut lime leaf, vanilla custard, flint and fennel seed introduce the rich and viscous palate which has its length and persistence aided by the inherent subliminal bitterness of the Marsanne skins and tactile phenolics.

PB White Blend No.1
We are seeking to find and enhance vintage-specific synergy and harmony from complementary blends which results in a wine above and beyond the limited range of expression afforded to grape varieties when bottled in isolation. The idea of blending grape varieties to create a wine of amplified expression, structure, integration and balance; harnessing each components individual strengths to fashion a wine greater than the sum of its manifold components, has long held a fascination for us as wine producers.

$38 per bottle
This wine walks a measured line between tension and weight, sinew and silk. Aromas of white nectarine, Makrut leaf, lime marmalade, nashi pear, jasmine bud, pyrethrum daisy, creamed macadamia and marzipan abound. The palate walks a fine line of tautness and relief, featuring grapefruit pith, lemon thyme, nougat and Artemesia, Weighted and moreish tactile phenolics help draw the palate to a long finish.

$38 per bottle
This wine takes its stylistic and varietal cues from the intense, dry and savoury styles of France’s Southern Rhône Valley where Grenache Noir is overwhelmingly the main variety utilized in Rosé and red wine production. Featuring beguiling aromas of macerated strawberries, red cherries, mandarin zest, ginger, musk, maquis and granite, the palate follows with lively flavours of strawberries and cream, blood orange, rhubarb, alfalfa, tahini and fennel seed.

Pinot Noir
As an extension of our explorations into the possibilities of future ‘fits’ for our vineyard plantings in the face of the steadily evolving and warming climate, we are also delving into the world of clonal variation in Pinot Noir. As a first step in this process, we chose to feature the north facing D2V5 clone as a singular wine. This wine walks a tense line between savoury and sweet-fruited characters. It bears a brightness of colour with an intensity of varietal fruit. Aromas of black cherry and char, rose petals and baked clay abound.

This wine takes its cue from the idea of creating a vinous symphony from blending multiple complementary grape varieties synonymous with France’s southern Rhône Valley. This blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre dips its lid to and raps on this theme of simpatico, harmony, balance, and integration of compatible grape varieties..

$50 per bottle
Conceived as our homage to the pioneering game-changing ‘Super Tuscan’ Vino da Tavola blends of Firenze (specifically Marchesi Antinori’s ‘Solaia’ from their Tenuta Tignanello) and Bolgheri in western central Italy. This blend of intensely-fruited traditional Bordelaise grape varieties and the earthy asperity of Sangiovese takes strengths from each of its requisite components to make a wine of regal rusticity that treads a path a little less travelled.

The concept of blending complementary and compatible grape varieties to create a wine of amplified expression, structure, integration, and balance, harnessing each components individual strengths to fashion a wine greater than the sum of its manifold component’s, has long held a fascination for us as wine producers. Taking its lead from the estimable blends of Bordeaux, built around a base of Merlot, we seek to find a vintage-specific synergy from a harmonious blend, resulting in a wine expression beyond the limited range afforded to the singular grape varieties when bottled in isolation.

$50 per bottle
Marsanne Late Harvest
This single-vineyard, single-block dessert wine represents an exploration into hybridising the dessert wine styles based on vins de paille (straw wines) from Hermitage and the Cote de Jura and Vendange Tardive (Late Harvest) styles from Alsace in France. Grapes were left to linger and intensify on the vine to achieve high sugar levels and honeyed complexity. The wine walks a measured fine line between tension, generosity, and medium-sweet weight. It featured aromas of ginger snap, cardamon, cumquat, crème anglaise, fresh quince, pink peppercorn, and beeswax.
