The Ingram Rd wines are made Helen’s Hill Estate; a boutique winery in the renowned Yarra Valley. The Ingram Rd range of wines are made following traditional boutique wine making techniques only found at the top end of the price range; premium fruit from select vineyards in the Yarra Valley and Central Victoria, small batch sizes, open top fermenters, full French oak maturation, 'wild' fermentation, hand crafted by a single winemaker...all trademarks of quality boutique wines.
Winemaker Scott McCarthy has handcrafted these wines from premium quality Yarra Valley fruit without the premium price tags.
"The fruit is grown in three separate sections of the vineyard. Two sections are at the bottom of the hills and enjoy cool, slightly moist growing conditions. These growing conditions allow the fruit to ripen very slowly, maintaining the fruits natural acidity levels and string grassy flavours. The remaining section is a small planting on top of the hill, exposed to the full summer sun which results in the development of a flavour structure that is less acidic and more tropical (almost sweet) fruit flavours.
By combining the fruit from the different areas (the best of both worlds) results in a wine that has a firm clean grassy nose and back palate with sweet, tropical nuances on the mid palate. A great wine for any occasion, but especially good for those summer outings." - Helens Hill Wines.
