We are thrilled to announce our newest award rated wines.
Our 2021 Tribute "Mr Mark" Shiraz " has been awarded 95 points by Halliday Wine Companion.
"Approximately 70% of the fruit was destemmed onto the top of 30% whole bunches. Ten days on skins and matured in mainly French 1–2yo puncheons. A gorgeous crimson purple. Compact and needing time to unfurl, a good swirl reveals aromas of sweet cherries, blackberries, exotic spices and some floral notes. Medium bodied, with excellent depth of fruit and lovely, persistent yet fine tannins, this very well-put-together wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to ten years." Phillip Rich - 12 May 2022
In addition our 2021 Tribute "Lady Celia" Pinot Noir has been awarded 96 points.
"Approximately 50% whole bunches and 3–4 days' pre-ferment cold soak. Matured in 1–3yo French puncheons and barriques for 7 months. A medium, very bright crimson. Fragrant, with lifted, freshly picked red cherries, raspberries, some floral notes and and a little cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Medium bodied, this is very composed and I really like the balance between the fruit, the use of whole bunches, oak and tannins, which are superfine and long. Lovely wine." Phillip Rich - 29 March 2022
A very Big Congratulations goes out to our hard working winemaking and vineyard teams.
We are very happy to announce Melba has come home…
The life-size bronze statue of Dame Nellie Melba, created by Peter Corlette was positioned for a long time in the Docklands precinct in Melbourne. Sadly Melba had been moved into storage since 2016, but thanks to Development Victoria, we were able to move her, to her home, here at Coombe.
The statue of Melba is now forever in place, welcoming all who walk through the iconic hedges to visit the estate she established over 100 years ago.
