The Story

Matt East grew up in the Yarra Valley, as a son of a grape grower, so he knows both the wine industry and the Yarra Valley extensively. We first met Matt at a wine trade tasting when he was State Manager for Wirra Wirra winery in McLaren Vale, before he headed out to his own label Rouluer in 2015.

Matt’s approach to his own production now is refreshing and uncomplicated. He believes in ‘not messing with the natural order’ of winemaking in keeping the winemaker inputs and additions to a minimum. The name Rouleur is a cycling term, which Matt is also passionate about, meaning a ‘consistent all-rounder’.

 M + Q Note

Distinctly cool climate Chardonnay from the Willow Lake vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley. Lemon curd, fleshy nectarine notes with gun-flint aromas, and real depth on the finish. Distinct creaminess and flesh on the palate, with a subtle oak influence.

Food Suggestion
