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.

Fruit is grown on narrow spaced vineyards to vertically shoot positioned vines, hand pruned in winter and hedge trimmed in summer, hand nurtured through to ripeness. Grapes are all hand picked in small parcel lots and carefully transported to the nearby winery where they are delicately pressed within an hour. A Bucher airbag press is applied with a modified champagne cycle, to produce around 450-550 litres per tonne of free run juice from the whole bunch pressed grapes. Base wines are tank and barrel fermented, a small percentage is aged on lees until tirage. The wine is celared for bottle fermentation until disgorgement, followed by some time on cork prior to release.
Polished diamond hues, a very fine, persistent bead. Biscuits and yeast, honey, nougat and layers of spice, perfumed talc balanced against the subtle tones of cashew and brie. A captivating, long, rich and balanced palate, sophisticated and beautifully defined, freshly baked apple pastries melt in your mouth, long and elegant, a crisp and dry, lingering finish.
