The essence & excellence of old mclaren vale vines»
Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from complete annihilation. One of the smallest yielding blocks in the land, Moorooroo endures as one of the world's most illustrious vineyards... The fruit of vines established 1836»

Brookland Valley's vineyards are closely planted as the lie of land flows down the valley, from sun drenched north facing slopes to gentle flats along the banks of the Willyabrup Brook. After adopting a technology driven approach to viticulture, the quality of all Brookland Valley's white wines have improved dramatically. Parcels Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc harvested from choice sites, are cold pressed to capture the intensity and retain freshness. Juices are vinified in controlled fermenters to preserve the crisp and crunchy characters of the vineyard. After a spell of extended lees contact to infuse depth and complexity, components are assembled into the definitively classic and dry, Margaret River white.
Pale straw hue with tinges of green. Fresh and punchy nose, light herbaceous characters are complemented by notes of freshly cut hay, braced with citrus blossom. A soft and vibrant mouthfeel, juicy acidity, crisp and lush tropical fruit flavours dominate, passionfruits and a squeeze of fresh lime. Herbaceousness finishes back of the palate, a fresh and fine acidity adds persistence and depth.
