Never has that sentiment been more clear than in the stellar 2016 releases from the great Mount Mary vineyard in the Yarra Valley.
With young winemaker, Sam Middleton at the helm of the winemaking team, this celebrated estate is entering a new golden age.
Sam is working off three generations of understanding of their little part of the Yarra. With this knowledge as a baseline, he has put together an outstanding suite of wines from this vintage with unanimous rave reviews from Australia's leading critics.
It's with great pleasure that today we offer you the full suite of Mount Mary releases from 2016. These wines are some of the most collectable in the country. After taking home the award as James Halliday's Winery of the Year last year, the scramble for Mount Mary allocations has never been more feverish.
As usual, allocations are very limited. Immaculately crafted and eminently cellarable, these are wines that you will open with pleasure for decades to come.
