GLEN GARVALD RANGE

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 inaugural release represents the realisation of a 13-year long process of development and dream for our winemaker. Our single blocks were planted in 2015 and delivered their first crop for the 2019 vintage. Roussanne works as the perfect foil, harnessing and focusing the power of the Marsanne, adding definition across the palate and accentuates the finish.

$50 per bottle
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. As such, this wine will find its own unique voice with every vintage and no two vintages will ever be varietally or proportionally the same.

$50 per bottle
Muscadelle
Although most commonly utilised as a high-impact aromatically intense small volume component of Bordeaux blends, our commitment to explore the possibilities and potentials for future sustainability of all of our planted varieties gave us the impetus to vinify, mature and bottle Muscadelle as a stand-alone wine.

$35 per bottle
Rosé
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.

$35 per bottle
Merlbec
Made in the current Valley vogue-ish ‘Light Dry Red’ style, this rare fusion of Merlot and Malbec as a stand-alone wine delivers intense varietal fruit fragrance with line and poise captured in a medium-bodied framework.

$50 per bottle
Shiraz Marsanne
Our 2019 Glen Garvald Shiraz Marsanne raps on this theme of co-fermentation and integration by incorporating Marsanne skins from the adjacent block into the Shiraz. The resultant wine shows the influence that even a tiny percent inclusion of a simpatico compatible ‘other’ can bring to a wine.

$60 per bottle
Ornelias
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.
