There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage. Aficianados of small batch, limited release endeavours by Australian winemaking luminaries, are quietly advised to indulge their appetence and secure a case of Robin Brockett Pinot Noir, Syrah..

The Ingoldby name has been an essential part of McLaren Vale viticulture for over a century. Choice parcels of Shiraz are sourced from premium McLaren Vale sites, including the Ingoldby family property at McLaren Flat. Fruit is earmarked on the basis of intense flavour and fine tannins. Parcels are vinified separately in a mix of fermenters and pressed off skins upon completion. Some components are matured in seasoned oak barrels to derive complexity, the balance remain unoaked to return vital fruit characters and preserve freshness. Prior to assemblage, each component is assessed to strike the perfect balance of lifted fruit and gentle tannins, supple oak and fine complexity.
Deep purple/ red colour. An enticing nose redolent of dark summer berry compote with hints of chocolate. Subtle oak lets the fruit do the talking and plays a supportive, integrated role. The palate is rich and round with purple fruits, dense but supple tannins contributing power with finesse, balance and good length.
