The 2019 growing season was one of extreme contrast in the Yarra Valley. We experienced a fairly severe frost in mid-September which unfortunately resulted in a 10-15% crop loss through our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. December proved to be very wet and humid resulting in some early-season disease pressure. What then followed was one of the warmest Januarys we have on record. This involved a string of days tipping the mercury over 35 ̊C. Some vintages just seem to produce wines that defy the climatic conditions and we believe 2019 is one that fits this mould.
The 2019 wines will hold a special place in the lineage of vintages we have produced since the first release in 1976. The 2019 season delivered a pleasingly even spread of quality across all varieties grown here at Mount Mary. Both the red wines show a fantastic level of fruit ripeness in combination with a piercing purity and focus. The whites follow in the same vein with exceptional concentration of flavour, pristine acidity and freshness.
