Seared rump of lamb with borlotti bean, marrow and confit tomato cassoulet.
The first one hectare of Serrat vineyard was planted in 2001 with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Viognier and a hand full of Grenache vine. In 2002 a second block of one acre was planted with Shiraz and finally our last acre was planted in 2010 with a few unexpected variety of wich you will hear about later.
Our aim is to truly reflect the potential of the Serrat vineyard site in our wine. Therefore, we decided to plant at 8,800 vines/hectare, more than four times the average density.
Our vines carry only a few bunches each and on average it takes one vine to produce one bottle.
This is not a new vineyard management concept, but the way that the great vineyards of Europe have been managed for hundreds of years. But it is a lot more work!
We believe that each wine is a true representative of the site, the variety, the vintage and what we enjoy drinking. The Serrat site is situated 3 km's from the Yarra Glen township in the heart of the Yarra valley. The site is North facing. The soils are grey to grey brown clays with buckshot gravels evenly dispersed through the topsoil. The subsoil is red-brown clay impregnated with ancient deteriorated mudstones. The soil is low in fertility.
Serrat is owned and cared for by Tom and Nadège Carson with the welcome help from Kate Thurgood .
