Kellybrook was established in 1962 and has quietly gone about making lovely wines and cider from their property in Wonga Park. In June 2011 Rob Hall joined the team after spending almost 10 years at Mount Mary. He was keen to spread his wings and try some new and interesting things with wines and introduced the Estate range wines. Made exclusively from fruit from the vineyard in Wonga Park and they are something special for sure. I have no doubt in saying the Estate range of wines will be considered classics of the Yarra in a few years time. We will focus on the Estate wines but will also include a few of the other Kellybrook range too. Don’t miss your chance to get in on the ground floor!
Not surprisingly for a cider producer they have a solera of apple brandy hanging around. It is a very smart drink too. The spirit is quite restrained and the age means it is quite mellow and warming. I really enjoyed a glass of this at the end of the dinner we hosted.
