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.

There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

Bleasdale Bremerview Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
Bleasdale founder Frank Potts was one of the earliest and most industrious builders in the colony of South Australia, he constructed a robust and enduring system of locks and weirs in the 1850s, employed to this day for controlling the seasonal floods which breach the banks of Bremer River. The eponymously named Bremerview Shiraz is vinified from fruit grown to unique soils, a drier, full flavoured wine which shows the distinctive local characteristics of rich blackberry flavours, eucalypt aromaticness and earthy, warming tannins.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$239.00
The entire range of Bleasdale's exquisite wines are modern classics. The management of the vines and the vinification of the fruit is very much a hands on affair by the fifth generation of a family that pionered and established Langhorne Creek as a premiere winegrowing region. The Potts family lead a dedicated winemaking and cellar team who are very proud of their work. Whilst Bleasdale is steeped in yesterday's history it has been outfitted with the latest technology. Today's winery still abides by the family traditions, retaining the philosophy of producing honest, consistent and reliable wines. Bremerview is treated to a year in a combination of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads and puncheons.
Deep, dark scarlet in colour. Intense varietal characters of dark cherries and ripe plums, complexed with fragrant spice aromas and toasty oak characters achieved by the extended maturation in tight grained American oak hogsheads and barriques. Generous fruit and supportive, mouthfilling tannins, Bremerview will continue to develop its rich earthy and chocolatey characters.
