About The Wine
The Willowlake vineyard is proving to be one of the happiest hunting grounds for negotiant winemakers looking for fruit in the Yarra Valley.
Dave Chatfield has managed to lock down a little of the prized Pinot Noir off this highly sought-after vineyard and he couldn't be happier.
The Willowlake site sits high up in the cooler parts of the Gladysdale sub-region of the Yarra - the perfect spot to grow fine-boned and delicate Pinot Noir.
As with all the Out of Step wines, the winemaking is kept simple to preserve the voice of the vineyard. It's a spot on example of Upper Yarra Pinot Noir and a delight to drink.
About The Producer
Dave Chatfield is the man behind the Out Of Step project.
After working vineyards in the Yarra Valley for years, Dave decided it was time to start his own thing.
The philosophy behind his wines: “To be great it must be real, expressive & honest.”
The wines are made with very little tinkering in the winery, allowing the great vineyards he sources fruit from to shine.
Based in the Yarra Valley, but sourcing fruit from various parts of Victoria, Out Of Step is forging a reputation for serious, eye-catching wines at a great price.
