Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»
Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists. Served by savvy sommeliers and savoured by the most discerning patrons, the limited releases of Golden Ball are an essential experience for aspirants of grand Victorian growths...

All fruit is picked by hand off vines yielding two to three tonnes per hectare. Grapes are de stemmed and crushed into the press for four hours of skin contact, extracting optimal flavour and textures while minimizing phenolics. Batches are de-juiced with only slight pressure prior to an overnight cold soak. Components are racked to fermenters and inoculated for a controlled vinification at at 18ËšC to 20ËšC. Ferments remain on lees for several weeks to fill palate structure before being stabilised. A passage to cross flow filtration preserves freshness and exemplary varietal fruit character.
Light colour, straw green hue. Vibrant grassy and gooseberry aromas continue through to the palate. Fresh, zippy acid holds the animated fruit structure together, giving considerable length.
