Tillie J Wines

With winter firmly settled in the Yarra Valley, we are delighted to announce the arrival of our highly anticipated Winter Wine List for our in-cabin wine bars. This year we put our taste buds into detective mode to find the perfect set of wines to complement the wintery views and our new immersive Larder experience. As a result we have found that sweet spot of where fine wines, natural landscapes and delectable bites combine to create the  ultimate getaway experience.
In this exquisite wine selection, we proudly introduce you to Tillie J Wines, a rising star in the Yarra Valley of wine making. Hailing from the Yarra Valley and recently awarded the Young Gun of Wine, Tillie J is an exceptionally talented and passionate female winemaker.
Through Tillie’s participation in the 2019 No.7 young winemakers program and her viticulture work with Giant Steps she has developed her own wine label, infusing her creations with her unique perspective and experience traveling the vintage trail across the cool climate regions of the world. Prepare to be enchanted by the bright and savoury flavors found in Tillie J Wines Pinot Noir, a true testament to her remarkable talent and unwavering commitment.

Our Winter Wine List has been meticulously tried so you can indulge in some luscious vertical tastings of Cabernet Sauvignons from Medhurst and Soumah. Explore the captivating cool climate Syrahs from the experimental  Cre Wines and elegant Pimpernel Vineyards, with their harmonious blend of spice, fruit, and earthiness. And, of course, immerse yourself in the delightful three-way Pinot Noir comparison, featuring Tillie J Wines alongside Pimpernel and Soumah, a remarkable exploration of the diverse expressions and nuances of this elegant varietal grown in the Yarra Valley.

To embark on this extraordinary wine journey, book a stay in one of our cosy cabins to enjoy the pleasures of winter with some stunning views.

Cheers to Tillie J’s inspiring journey, the artistry of winemaking, and the unforgettable moments that await! Until we welcome you here, wishing you safe and happy travels.
