James' Review

Leading Melbourne architect John Denton and son Simon began the establishment of the vineyard with a first stage planting in 1997, completing the plantings in 2004. The name Viewhill derives from the fact that a granite plug ?was created 370 million years ago, sitting above the surrounding softer sandstones and silt of the valley'. This granite base is most unusual in the Yarra Valley, and, together with the natural amphitheatre that the plug created, has consistently produced exceptional grapes. The principal varieties planted are pinot noir, chardonnay and shiraz, with lesser quantities of nebbiolo, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot.
