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»
It was a matrimony between an American biochemist and the founder of Margaret River Devils Lair, that set the scene for one of the nation's most illustrious estates. A member of the Top 1OO Wineries of World, Giant Steps were established 1997, with a view to assembling an elite range of limited release Yarra Valley vintages. Crafted from the fruit of superior sites, some yielding just a few hundred cases each year, these are exclusive editions from bespoke parcels of elite terroir, bearing the curiously cryptic monikers of precious blocks of vine, Gruyere Farm, Applejack and Wombat Creek. Fashioned for aficianados of the euro style, defined by their winsome fruit and graceful tannins, the Giant Steps single vineyard range are all distinct for their expression of place, each articulate of a unique soil and influence of clime...

Argiano Suolo IGT Sangiovese CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sangiovese Montalcino Italy
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.
