Mark O’Callaghan spent some considerable time buried in the wine giant formerly known as Hardy’s, which is not such a bad place to hone ones sparkling winemaking skills. As Senior Winemaker and Winery Manager at Yarra Burn, Mark had plenty of contact with the fizzy stuff, and with the resource of the legendary Ed Carr... well, not a bad pedigree. Today, Mark consults near and far, but can’t resist playing with small parcels of fruit from sites that he knows and loves. Mark sources fruit from the Yarra Valley for his sparkling, favouring Chardonnay over Pinot Noir in a 60/40 blend. The wine has a brightly tuned citrus drive, with the Coldstream fruit providing extra plushness and texture.
