Coldstream Hills were established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday. From its initial vintage of 450 dozen, it has grown to become one of Australia's leading small wineries with a reputation that belies its size. Situated in the cool Yarra Valley, its steep, closely planted vineyards have become a signature of the region. So too have its wines, most notably a Pinot Noir which reflects a clime cooler than Bordeaux and warmer than Burgundy. Hand picked grapes from low yielding vineyards in Upper and Lower Yarra Valley are vinified to a variety of Burgundian handling techniques, including whole bunch fermentation and a term of age in a selection of choice French oak barrels.
