Smooth and supple, rather Rhone-like in style and weight. Long and spicy. It should develop well - Jeremy Oliver

"This is a baby that shows the high potential of this new region. The nose is all vanilla and raw plum, but full of appeal. It has excellent depth and intensity of fruit. A wine with a future."  Epicure Uncorked

"The Cheviot Bridge Yea Valley 2001 Shiraz is made from fruit selected from the Jenbel vineyard at Murrindindi and Bill Gurry's Larnoo Vinyard just north of Yea. The Jenbel component always displays a spice/plum aroma and intense fruit flavour. The Larnoo wine has a tremendous 'fruit jube' bouquet as a young wine, that develops into a 'roasted meat' character with oak maturation. The wine displays aromas of spice and plum with complex flavours and a long dry finish."  Cheviot Bridge

Expert reviews

"Medium-red purple; the clean and smooth bouquet has a mix of raspberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit, the oak in restraint; an appealing touch of dark chocolate joins the gently ripe fruit on the medium-bodied palate, the oak once again playing a support role. As with the Chardonnay, the oak is far better handled than with prior releases. From the Larnoo and Jenbel Vineyards."  James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion - 92 points

"Full to medium red ruby in colour. Vibrant, pristine and spicy aromas of small black and red berries with a whiff of black pepper are backed by restrained nuances of cedar and vanilla oak. There's a suggestion of gamey, slightly jammy influence suggestive of some whole berry fermentation. Smooth and supple, rather willowy and Rhone-like in style and weight, with sweet flavours of raspberries, dark cherries and cassis. Long and spicy, finishing with lingering notes of clove and cinnamon, it's framed by what are presently slightly green and sappy tannins but some pleasingly fine-grained oak. It should develop well."  Jeremy Oliver - 91 points

"This is a baby that shows the high potential of this new region. The colour is vivid purple-red and it's a tad young and unformed. The nose is all vanilla and raw plum, but full of appeal. It has excellent depth and intensity of fruit. A wine with a future."  Epicure Uncorked  ★★★★

About the winery

Cheviot Bridge

"Cheviot Bridge made headlines when it purchased the Tyrrell's Long Flat range of wines in 2003, but the nature of the business has changed substantially since then. In late 2010 Cheviot Bridge acquired the InWine Group and its principal wineries, Arrowfield Estate and Red Hill Estate. While the production of these two wineries is less than that of Cheviot Bridge, the brands thus acquired are well known, and add depth to the Cheviot Bridge portfolio. In its own right, Cheviot Bridge produces 350 000 dozen from the Clare, Barossa and Yarra Valleys, utilising custom-make facilities in various places. The brands also include Cheviot Bridge Yea Valley, Long Flat, Long Flat Destinations, La Vie and Kissing Bridge."  James Halliday

Wine region map of Victoria


Victoria is home to more than 800 wineries across 21 wine regions. The regions are Alpine Valley, Beechworth, Bendigo, Geelong, Gippsland, Glenrowan, Goulburn Valley, Grampians, Heathcote, Henty, King Valley, Macedon Ranges, Mornington Peninsula, Murray Darling, Pyrenees, Rutherglen, Strathbogie Ranges, Sunbury, Swan Hill, Upper Goulburn and Yarra Valley.

Victoria's first vines were planted at Yering in the Yarra Valley in 1838. By 1868 over 3,000 acres had been planted in Victoria, establishing Victoria as the premier wine State of the day. Today, the original vineyards planted at Best's Wines are among the oldest and rarest pre-phylloxera plantings in the world.

Victoria's climate varies from hot and dry in the north to cool in the south and each wine region specialises in different varietals. For example, Rutherglen in the north is famous for its opulent Muscats and Topaque and bold reds, while the many cooler climate regions near Melbourne produce world class Chardonnay and pinot Noir. Victoria is truly a wine lover's playground.
