Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage. Bellvale remains artisanally small batch, just 23 hectares of vine yields a measured harvest of spectacular quality Chardonnay and Pinot.. Placing pinot amongst the pastures»

Brookland Valley is the only estate which controls vineyards over the entire length and breadth of Margaret River. Verse 1 are fashioned to express true regionality with elegance and intensity, eminently drinkable upon release. Shiraz is sourced from the most superlative vineyards operated by Margaret River's most experienced growers. After harvesting, bunches are destemmed into static fermenters, inoculated for vinification and routinely worked to extract flavours, colour and tannin, followed by a pressing at dryness. Components are seeded and treated to a malolactic fermentation before being matured for up to a year under a mix of new and prior use French oaks.
Deep red with youthful purple hues. Nicely fragrant spicey black fruits, combined with hints of licorice, black pepper and cloves, all supported by subtle oak aromas. Classy, elegant ribena and violet perfumes, dusty dried herb and leafy complexity held firmly together by lashings of nutmeg oak. A Shiraz that sits softer on the palate than most, abetted by firm tannins and persistence of flavour.
