Geoff Hardy's family have been making Australian wine since 1857. Geoff grew up amongst the most distinguished vineyards in our land and he knows from good red wine. He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages. Undercover is a moniker that Geoff has assigned to a collation of exceptional parcels, albeit bottled behind an abstruse label to secrete the provenance of a spectacular Shiraz. Gold Medal Winner & Best Value at the hotly contested 2016 China Wine & Spirit Awards, the pick of crop this week, seriously.. Sound shiraz for the savvy & shrewd»
Torbreck of Barossa are one of Australia's great export brands, synonymous with luxury and excellence throughout the world of wine. Crafted from the fruit of old and ancient vineyards, the opulence and exclusivity of Torbreck's painfully limited production challenge the primacy of Grange. Established by a share cropper in the 1990s, its precious range has risen to the status of First Growth amongst the community of ardent international advocates. Woodcutter is the entry level, assembled from parcels which may have been destined for some of the brand's lofty icons, an essential experience for all enthusiasts of compelling Barossa Shiraz...

Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands. The windswept maritime vineyards of little Portsea Estate yield the quality of Mornington that have to be experienced... Mornington's westernmost vineyards»

Tempranillo Geographe Western Australia
Crafted from parcels of hand picked Tempranillo grapes, grown to the exquisite Mazza Vineyard at Donneybrook, an hour's drive northeast of Margaret River. The greater Geographe region has been an essential component in west coast wines for many vintages, the quality of harvests rival her salubrious neighbours. An eloquent articulation of a splendid terroir and the fruit of closely cossetted vines, its classic old world savouriness, gardeniere complexity and light fresh tannins make Empirica the first choice alongside crackling pork or supple lamb recipes.

Castelli have chosen to fashion their harvest in a manner which highlights the bright berry fruit aromas and showcases the lovely savoury tannins which define Tempranillo. Parcels of hand picked fruit are crushed into small open top fermenters for several days of cold soak maceration. Batches are hand plunged twice daily for gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Upon completion, ferments are transferred to a selection of two and three year old French oak barriques for fifteen months maturation, integrating the wine while taming the tannins. A minimal influence of oak is essential to the style, seasoned oak achieves balance and structure while preserving the elegance of fruit.
