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.

An ongoing resurrection of some fabulous old vines, a distinguished Blewitt Springs site and a range of the most spectacular McLaren Vale wines. When Kelly and Bondar acquired Rayner Vineyard in 2013, they knew that everything depended on the management of site and soil to achieve the excellence of wine they had in mind. The most fastidious husbanding regimens and a tightly scheduled evolution towards organic viticulture, the propitious Rayner vines have never yielded finer harvests, all translating into a tour de force across the entire Bondar range. Salient quality and penurious pricing make for a compelling mix. Old vines grown to salubrious soils, the.. Model mclaren macerations»
Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot.. It's irrewarra by farr»

The Schrapel property is hand pruned to seventy buds per vine, traditional viticulture limits the yield to 6.25t/hectare. The healthy old vines sprout a superb harvest and there is very low incidence of disease. Fruit is crushed and de stemmed on skins in open top fermenters for eight days at 15C to 18C. Ferments are racked and pumped over skin caps for optimal colour and tannin extraction. Upon completion, batches are pressed and left to settle for malolactic, followed by transfer to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extravagant twenty two months maturation, enhancing the sublime old vineyard fruit character and building fine palate structure.
Deep garnet, almost black colour. Aromas of ripe berries leap from the glass, followed by the rich, ripe blackberry and plum fragrances of Barossa Shiraz. A generous palae of mellow fruit flavours, showing excellent acid balance and restrained, supportive tannins. A finish that's full of Barossa chocolate plum fruit characters, gritty fruit tannins and crispy cherry acidity, silky soft, lingering and long.
