Coombe Farm is one of the oldest and largest family estates in the Yarra Valley. The Tribute Series of wines have been created to honour the incredible legacy of our forefathers. Coombe Farm was once the home of Dame Nellie Melba and is still owned and operated by her descendants. This stylish celebratory wine is named in her honour.
This is a very fine, delicate and elegant Yarra Valley sparkling wine with hints of citrus, chalk and spice scented flowers. The palate is vibrant and refreshing with tangy grapefruit and melon flavours. It has a seamless and delicate ‘bead’ and a hint of creaminess and pristine lemon acidity.
