- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Fourre-Tout translated into English means, 'catch all'. The Carsons have planted some varieties rarely seen in the Yarra Valley, including Grenache and Barbera to their small vineyard outside Yarra Glen. This is a Rosé desgined as a 'catch-all' for their favourite Rosé fruit each year. The blend changes but the style stays the same: crisp yet textural, dry yet full of flavour. It's a lovely drink and top value considering the quality of fruit and the winemaking talent behind this wine. A top-flight version of serious Yarra Valley Rosé.
What it Tastes Like
"It shows it's class with a really punchy and lifted bouquet. Strawberry and red currants with a hint of spice and a nice complex floral under current of violets and rose petals. The wine has a lovely mouthfeel and texture, shaped by a fine mineral backbone and the finish really drives on." - Tom Carson
The 2016 Serrat Fourre-Tout Rosé is predominately Pinot Noir this year with a dash of Grenache Noir and Barbera representing 10% of the blend. It shows it's class with a really punchy and lifted bouquet. Strawberry and red currants with a hint of spice and a nice complex floral under current of violets and rose petals. The wine has a lovely mouthfeel and texture, shaped by a fine mineral backbone and the finish really drives on. Whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented in an old 500L puncheon, unfiltered and just delicious to drink now and over summer. [Fourre-Tout] French term meaning catch-all. We have planted a number of different varieties, many not associated with the Yarra Valley. From time to time, we will make a blend that we find irristibble and share the result with you .

About the Producer
Tom Carson is one of Australia’s most acclaimed winemakers. He has spent 12 years bring Yering Station to prominence as one of the Yarra Valley’s most revered wineries and now, Serrat is his baby. These wines come from Tom’s own block which he farms with wife Nadège Carson. They are Burgundian inspired. Their wines are receiving amazing reviews. A small producer making lots of noise in the Yarra Valley.
The Yarra Valley stands tall as one of the country’s finest cool-climate wine regions. Only a short jaunt from Melbourne, the Yarra has become a tourist hot-spot for its stunning scenery, high quality produce, and of course, as the home to some of the country’s most iconic wine producers. From the extraordinarily elegant Cabernets and Syrahs that populate the ‘Valley floor’, to the precise and complex versions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that hail from the higher climes of the Yarra, this region is diverse and in a state of change. As temperatures rise and phylloxera infiltrates each pocket of the Yarra Valley, the range of alternative varieties from continental Europe is sure to increase to create a more colourful picture of the region. The Yarra embodies so much of what is great about the modern Australian wine scene.
No variety captures the hearts and minds of the wine lover quite like Pinot Noir. It’s the unicorn of many a winemaker. Notoriously fickle to grow, this delicate red variety can deliver a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas, from the bright and floral to the moody and mysterious and everything in between. The cooler regions of Australia are where Pinot Noir is most at home. Look to Tasmania and Victoria for the best examples, with some quality wines beginning to show from the Great Southern and from the cooler parts of NSW. Falling in love with Pinot Noir can be a life long affair, beware the charms of this most enchanting of grapes.
