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..

Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington... Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»

Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Chianti Classico Italy
Antinori's Tenuta Tignanello is situated between the Greve and Pesa valleys, between the little villages of Monteridolfi and Santa Maria a Macerata, thirty kilometres south of Florence. The elite Tignanello site grows Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc. An ancient villa on the property dates back to 1346. In the seventeenth century it was owned by a branch of the Medici family, who named it Fonte dei Medici. Acquired by the Antinoris in the mid 1800s, it is now source to one of the most historically significant wines in Chiant Classico.
Grapes are selectively picked over a course of three weeks between the end of September and early October. Fruit is treated to the highest scrutiny during harvest and again following it's arrival to the wineworks. A regimen of pumpovers with rack and returns is employed throughout the fermentations to retain varietal characters, intense colour and fine tannins. Upon completion, the wines are run off skins and transferred to small oak barrels for a completely natural malolactic before the end of January. Parcels are assembled and aged for a further twelve months in small oak while being racked at regular intervals. A final selection, barrel by barrel, determines the finished wine.
