2018 Gembrook Hill Vineyard Release



Planted by Ian and June Marks in 1983, the natural amphitheatre that is the Gembrook Hill Vineyard produces some of theYarra Valleys finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Sadly, in 2017 Ian passed away suddenly leaving son Andrew Marks to take the reigns at the family property.

Outside of Gembrook Hill Andrew has worked atmany top producers in the USA,Spain and France including Etienne Sauzet in Puligny-Montrachet as well asPenfolds and Seppelt in Australia.His breadth of knowledge and experience gained during this time has certainly set him in good stead to continue his mother and fathersvision ofcrafting single varietal winesmade in the vineyard, with minimal handling in the winery.

2018 Estate Chardonay
Usually $48- Special Offer $43


2018 was clearly very good at Gembrook Hill.

Elegant plus. It has the flavour and it then lets flow take over. Nectarine, pure white peach, citrus and creamed honey, spiced cedarwood. It’s alert, alive and lovely. The length of the finish is quite outstanding. It’s a wine with all the right moves.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 95 Points


2018 Estate Pinot Noir
Usually $56 - Special Offer $51

Gembrook Hill Pinot Noir rarely disappoints.

It presents in its signature transparent way but the complexity is all there and so too is the length. This is an excellent wine. Undergrowth and cranberries, sweet herbs and woodsmoke, ripe cherry and a sourness about the edges. They could trademark this style; they turn it out each year as if it’s easy. A turn of tannin leads you out through the finish. It’s a garden of a wine, well tended, brimming with good health.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 95 Points


2018 I.J.M. Pinot Noir
Usually $89 - Special Offer $85

For the legendary Ian Marks from his wonderful family.

Perfumed and succulent pinot of inward concentration but brilliant freshness, an almost crystal cut feel but for the swish of sappy, fine ribbons of tannin. What ho. A wine of quietness and beauty, graceful in its movement and feel, such wonderful texture and brightness to flavour. Picture perfect, or close. An experience and memorable.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 96 Points


2018 J.K.M. Pinot Noir
Usually $89 - Special Offer $85


Please welcome the inaugural release of the JKM Pinot Noir to the Gembrook Hill lineup.

As a new season approached, it occurred toAndrewthat while 2017 had been a fitting year to celebrate Ian, it made even more sense to celebrate the living. Enter theJKMor June Kathryn Marks. While theIJMwas a powerful but humble expression as a vinous memorial to Ian, theJKMseeks to capture some of June’s natural exuberance.
Winery Notes, Gembrook Hill

Amazing. How does a wine so translucent have so much crammed into it? Where does it hide? Surely, wine this delicate can’t handle oak and whole bunch, but it does. It does it with ease and elevates all elements to a higher level. This has a richness to it, a deeper, soulful, and fruit driven expression that captivates and excites. It’s utterly wonderful. It’s the best example I can think ofwhich shows Pinot’s almost ghostly appeal, those high pitched and oft sought after elements of generosity of flavour without heaviness on your palate. Wow. Wow. Wow.
Distributor Notes, Moor St Wines
