Julian Tertini planted his Yaraandoo vineyard in 2000 and, though a newcomer to viticulture, he was sufficiently savvy to employ the quietly spoken, highly focused and uber-talented Jonathan Holgate as his winemaker.

Pinot noir stands out with riesling and arneis in solid support, backed by cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, pinot gris, merlot and lagrein. A mere sip of Holgate’s wines will confirm why wine show judges have showered Tertini with medals and trophies from the inaugural vintage in 2005.

The cellar door is a simple, low-key affair with good coffee and local cheeses adding panache. Grapes from Yaraandoo are supplemented with fruit from other regions and clearly labelled as such.

Tertini is a fledgling winery with a big future – join their online Summit Club to ensure you don’t miss any of these outstanding wines. PETER BOURNE
