James' Review

The micro, patchwork-quilt vineyard was first planted by Philip Lobley in 1995 with pinot noir, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. In 2008 nebbiolo, semillon, sauvignon blanc and moscato giallo (or gold muskateller, thought to be a version of muscat a petits grains) were added. These are high-density plantings and, with shoot and crop thinning, yield is kept to 600800g per vine. The red wines are wild yeast-fermented and neither filtered nor fined; the Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc (purchased) is whole bunch-pressed and wild yeast-fermented. The 2008 plantings were destroyed by the Black Saturday bushfires, and nebbiolo and moscato giallo have been replanted; 80% of the older wines recovered thanks to the good spring/summer rainfall of 10.

About this winery

The Lobley family purchased their Glenburn property in 1992. It is located in the Upper Yea Valley 9kms south of Glenburn at an elevation of 280m. The official GI is Upper Goulburn Valley.
Planting began in 1995.
Our high-density vineyard consists of Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscato Giallo, Semillon and Nebiollo. These last four varieties were planted in 2008.

The vineyard is cane pruned to a single arm 8 buds long. The canopy is vertically shoot positioned and shoot thinned. We crop thin to 10-14 bunches per vine. Yield is 600-800gms per vine, this allows each vine to contribute a little fruit to each bottle.

Specialties

The wines are born from, the soil, the climate, our culture and sense of place here within the landscape. The new labels feature our favourite gum tree located at the waters edge of our dam. The copper plate etching was produced by printmaker Martin King.
