Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands. The windswept maritime vineyards of little Portsea Estate yield the quality of Mornington that have to be experienced... Mornington's westernmost vineyards»

Hollick Nectar Botrytis Riesling 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Coonawarra South Australia
It is said that the gloriously sweet, concentrated wines which result from grapes infected by Noble Rot Botrytis Cinerea are indeed a nectar of the gods. Ever since crafting their first botrytised wines, Hollick have developed quite a reputation for this rich style, fashioned exclusively from Coonawarra Riesling grapes grown to the Hollick Wilgha Vineyard. The nose exudes a complex array of fragrances, the luscious palate displays honey, mandarin peel and apricot flavours, moving slowly towards an everlasting finish and cleansing drying acidity.
Available by the dozen

Coonawarra (via the Mildara wineworks) was one of the pioneering districts for the making of this style. Botrytis wines are made in extremely small quantities, and only in years when the Noble Rot or Botrytis cinerea appears. Each year the Hollick team's patience is tested, waiting for Botrytis to develop naturally in the vineyard. In years of low infection, cordon cutting is practised to dehydrate the grapes and concentrate the flavours. Once harvested and pressed, the juice is cold settled for several days then seeded with yeast and fermented until the desired balance between sweetness and acidity is attained. Gentle pressing and a long cool fermentation retain the vibrancy and freshness of flavour.
Bright golden straw colour. Clean and fresh aromas of dried apricot and honey with hints of grapefruit and orange peel. A rich and luscious palate of concentrated apricot, lemon and mandarin fruit flavours, a mouth coating wine to be appreciated as much for its fruit, as for the complexity and balance between sweetness and delicate acidity, to achieve a refreshing, lingering after taste. Serve chilled with pâté de foie or dried fruits and ripe soft cheese.
