Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache. Beautifully detailed and conspicuously elegant, their floral bouquets and graceful finish emulate the aromatic lift and peacock's tail of a prettily perfumed Pinot Noir. Magnificent to savour as a captivating aperitif, a bliss alongside.. Polly & the pyre to paradise»
Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation.

This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock.

Bondar Fiano CONFIRM VINTAGE

Fiano McLaren Vale South Australia
There's a place in McLaren Vale's Seaview terraces, where Ben Lacey grafted Fiano on to a parcel of twenty five year old Chardonnay rootstock. A wonderful idea when you consider that the clonal cocktails are yielding a magnificently ripe early harvest of fruit which begets a sensationally complex wine. Whole bunch pressed into a choice of vinification on skins or good old fashioned, wild indigenous ferments in well seasoned oak. Batches remain on sedimentery gross lees until June, followed by assemblage into a precious, multi dimensional small batch wine of a mere 165 dozen bottles.
