What a difference just a few years can make. Taking nothing away from Toolangi’s history, the triple whammy of new ownership, full control of winemaking and the introduction of a talented new winemaker in Kaspar Hermann (ex-Mount Mary), has breathed new life into this grower/producer. Hermann now controls Toolangi’s destiny, working closely with Kelly Healey and seasoned Yarra viticulturist John Evans. The wines have already developed a distinctive and cohesive identity as compared to those of Toolangi V1.0, in which the wines were produced by a roster of external (and admittedly, very talented) winemakers.
