Spring and Early summer - what a wonderful time in the vineyard. It is looking lush and green everywhere. It is also a wonderful time to visit the Yarra Valley and Shantell Cellar Door and restaurant. Check out the new summer menu. Philip Oliver has come up with some wonderful dishes for all of us to experience.
We have just released the 2008 Shantell Shiraz wich has been a big hit. The wine shows great depth of flavour with a long clean finish. A wonderful food wine.

The 2009 Shantell Pinot Noir is still availabe. It is a very special wine - lots of complexities and flavours reflecting the very special bush fire vintage. The hint of smokiness is well balanced by the intensities of the fruit flavours and the high alcohol. We would love to share a sample with you next time you visit the cellar door and/or the restaurant.
We look forward to seeing you in the restaurant and at the cellar door on your next visit to the Yarra Valley.
