Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple isle, a no expense spared approach in the elevage and quality of oak, the wines of Clarence House are a treat for enthusiasts on a quest to procure the elusive vintages of an original Van Diemen's Chateau...

Bellvale Athenas Vineyard Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Gippsland Victoria
The small but dedicated team at Bellvale take inspiration from the big boned Chardonnays of Cote de Beaune, drawing fruit off five closely managed hectares on the temperate, maritime windswept pasteurs of Gippsland south. Hand picking and sorting are a matter of course, lees exposure, barrel ferments and traditional Burgundian regimens add palate weight and flesh. A crisp, mineral style, defined by its penetrating acid line and evocative of Chablis, its fresh cut orchard fruit character and juicy apple zip are supported by a wafer of creamily spiced oak.
