The Australian winemaking industry is grateful to Leontine O'Shea, instrumental in the establishment of Mount Pleasant wines, she sent her son Maurice to France for an education in viticulture right at the outbreak of World War I, gifting him his first Hunter Valley vineyard in 1921. Mount Pleasant are now custodians of some grand old sites, a canon of small, elite blocks of vine that yield a precious range of icon wines, which represent peerless value and readily disappear before release of the following vintage... The legacy of grand old hunter valley vineyards»
Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington...

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.
