"Narkoojee has been making quite a splash with their Chardonnay in recent times - this is a rich and flavour-packed wine with no small degree of finesse, and the potential for some bottle development. Indeed, winemaker Harry Friend's range of wines show a dab hand at work. The Cabernet blend is a gentle, classy wine showing good structure and, once again, thoughtful winemaking. The old goldmining town of Walhalla is nearby and the Strzelecki Ranges provide an impressive backdrop to the winery." Ben Canaider

'Narkoojee vineyard is nestled among the eucalypts on the northern side of the broad Latrobe Valley. In the far distance the Loy Yang power station contrasts to the quiet pastoral beauty hereabouts. Birdsong fills the air and the atmosphere is fresh and invigorating. The wines made here number among Gippsland's best with fine, complex Chardonnay and one of Australia's best Merlots heading the range. Local Gippsland cheese plates are available as harmonious companions to the wines.' Ralph Kyte-Powell
