At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib... That's perfect for porterhouse»

Brookland Valley retain access to the finest fruit, grown to the best sites in five of Margaret River's six sub regions, providing an impressive palette of flavours from which to craft wine. Exclusively hand picked Chardonnay from the estate vineyard at Wilyabrup, fruit is whole bunch pressed to retain freshness and fineness, transferred to an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques for vinification through wild indigenous yeasts, infusing wonderful texture and complexity. Upon completion, batches are treated to full malolactic on gross lees solids for nine months, occasionally lees stirred battonage for lovely creamy textures and extended length to the palate.
Pale straw green hues. Intense aromatics of pink grapefruit, nectarine and stone fruit, cashews and spice. The palate is richly flavoured, flintyness, lemon zest, nougat and grilled nuts, a full Chardonnay of power and concentration. Barrel fermentation has lent creaminess and palate weight to a wine that finishes with extraordinary length of flavour.
