Planted to the tranquil Shangri-La of a sun warmed slope in Yarra Valley, TarraWarra was established 1983 by the founders of the Sussan and Sportsgirl brands.

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 Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard.. Sociable soils make for healthy vine»

Argiano Suolo IGT Sangiovese CONFIRM VINTAGE

Suolo means soil, the rich confluence of Tuscan terroirs which host Argiano's oldest vines. Sangiovese is sourced off two elite vineyard blocks, cropped to a mere four or five bunches per vine, intensifying the flavours in the grapes and achieving extraordinary concentration. Just 3,000 bottles and sixty magnums of Suolo are made annually from the limited yields of these precious sites.

Grapes are selectively harvested by hand in mid October and brought to the winery in small crates to avoid any damage to berries. The large proportion of whole fruit initiates carbonic maceration as grapes begin to ferment from the inside out. The must is left in contact with skins for three weeks gaining maximum extractions before being run off to 225 litre barrels. The wines complete malolactic in a selection of completely new French oak barrels of the finest grain, coopered to facilitate softness of tannin and fruit. Components are racked once over a period of fifteen to seventeen months. Suolo is usually bottled in July with no filtration and may throw a harmless sediment which is the sign of natural, quality wine.
Dark ruby colour. Nose of complex dark fruits, a beautifully delineated, perfumed red berry character, flowers and spice, licorice, smoke and earthiness in a gorgeously pure, vibrant expression of Sangiovese that bursts onto the palate. Beautifully textured, Suolo is silky and smoothly textured, a wine of exquisite balance, dark and mysterious with superbly integrated oak.
