Coonawarra cattle graziers since 1906, the Reschke family turned some of their land over to viticulture in the 1980s. Such was the quality of Reschke fruit, that it became an essential inclusion for some of Wynn's most memorable vintages and a number of national icon wines. Reschke now keep the pick of crop for their own label, the most princely harvests of Coonawarra Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz, characterised by their defined regional eloquence and ingratiating palate weight. The fruit of vines, planted to iron red terra rosa soil and nourished by the fertile plenitude from generations of grazing cattle, for every ardent enthusiast of born and bred, baronnial..

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.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
The sensational vintages of St John's Road were generations in the making, the fruit of grand old vineyards and the progeny of families which have tilled Barossa soil since early settlement. The landed gentry along St John's Road represent a heritage of the most distinguished names in Australian viticulture, Lehmann and Lienert, Zander, Kalleske and Schutz. With each vintage, they earmark small parcels of the most exceptional Barossa fruit, to be treated to a course of traditional open ferments and term of age in the finest French oak. Bearing such pious Lutheran monikers as Prayer Garden and Resurrection Vineyard, these sacred sites are planted to some of the.. Brought to you by barossa born & bred»
Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Chardonnay Frankland River Western Australia
Alkoomi take full advantage of the cool, maritime Frankland River climes, to encourage the development of all the charming fruit characters which articulate a fresh, unwooded Chardonnay. Young and young at heart, minus the oak and with a little more oomph than usual for this type of wine, finished to a crisp, fruit driven styling, it lingers long and fruit forward with some cheeky punch bowl flavours, lime rickey, pawpaw and peach. Its wonderful freshness make it a cinch with all cosmopolitan luncheon fare.

Alkoomi make a judicious use of water supplied from on site dams to prevent vine stress during extended dry periods, without sacrificing the naturally low yields that produce concentrated flavours. The vines are all pruned by hand, harvesting occurs in the cool of very early morning, usually starting at 2.00 am, to ensure that grapes arrive at the winery in top condition. Chardonnay is harvested throughout the cooler hours and pressed, juices are settled overnight and racked over a high proportion of juice solids. Upon completion of ferments, batches are held on sedimentery lees, regularly stirred to build complexity and texture before bottling.
Brilliant pale gold, emerald hues. Aroma of peaches and cream with subtle savoury notes. Honeydew melon and white peach on the palate with hints of vanilla and hazelnut and creamy textural structure underpinned by soft, mineral acidity. A generously proportioned wine made to appreciate in its youth, vibrant and fresh.
