Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's..

Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes..

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

Vasse Felix Cane Cut Semillon 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Vasse Felix produce the most exquisite Margaret River Semillon, wines of extraordinary freshness, lifted fruit intensity, elegance and finesse. Vasse Felix make a cane cut dessert style Semillon by slashing the shoots at the base, essentially detaching fruit from the vine. Bunches are then allowed to hang for several weeks, during which time the berries desiccate, concentrating the sugar, flavours and acid. The result is an attractive quince and tropical fruit flavoured wine offering amazing depth of flavour and vitality, seasoned by just a hint of spicy French oak.

Cane Cut Semillon is all about timing and precision, exercising care in the vineyard to create fruit which can ultimately translate into a wine of purity and elegance. Being an early ripening grape, Semillon finds the growing conditions in Margaret River idyllic. Vines will usually compensate for cooler conditions by reducing yield so that every chance is given to obtain optimum ripeness. Given the amount of shrivel in a cane cut grape, yields are precious and extraction rates are very low for this style of wine. Following harvest and the crush, juices are inoculated to select yeasts before vinification in a combination of fermenters, folowed by a judicious term of lees stirring in a mix of French oak barriques. Alcohol 11.0%
Medium straw hues. Intensely fragrant with barley sugar and spice, lovely citrus marmalade notes, gingernut and meringue are seasoned by toasty French oak notes of vanilla and spice. Preserved lemon, tangerine and grapefruit flavours burst onto the palate, a fresh tangy acidity perfectly balancing the rich luscious sweetness. A lovely viscous, silky, creamed honey mouthfeel provides medium bodied richness and texture, finely focused mineral acidity and long luscious finish.
