The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay and mesmerising Riesling, all representing essential drinking and salient value, for every learned west coast gourmande in the..

William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz. But what does Maxwell taste like? Gentleman James Halliday describes Maxwell as robust, picking the eyes out of McLaren Vale shiraz; licorice, dark chocolate, savoury firm, ripe tannins, blackberry, positive oak the icing on the cake. Terrific value. Oh yes, he suggests that it should be enjoyed by.. Made of mature vine mclaren vale »

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.
