Intoxicating nose full of woody notes but also a hint of something more floral. Honeysuckle? Crisp, mineral opening with a twist of lime opens up to a full but clean fruit notes of red apples and pear drops with a lingering woody finish. There’s creaminess, sure, but this is in no way one of those ‘nineties Aussie butter bombs!
Distant Noises is an exciting new portfolio of varietal wines made by Tom Carson of Yabby Lake (and previously Yering Station) fame. The range was originally created for a smart restaurant group in Australia… when we got wind of it we were more than a little keen to get involved. Tom sources the fruit from tip top Yarra Valley growers and the winemaking is as sensitive, precise and assured as befits his reputation. The beauty of Distant Noise is both the quality of these varietal incarnations… and their price! Tom set himself the challenge of making premium Yarra wines at a price that you rarely see for wines from this region. Why, in this venal old world, would he do that? Well, having achieved pretty much everything else there is to achieve in wine and having reached the summit several times over, Distant Noises was Tom’s chance to do that rare thing of making a cracking range of wines that punch above their weight and are accessible to everyone. We’ll take that!
