Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came.

Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s.

Castelli Il Liris Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Denmark Western Australia
The team at Castelli can call on precious yields of the most exceptional Chardonnay, the goal being to construct a new world wine that's very much in the style of Grand Cru Chablis. Essential to the task is a judicious component of early picked fruit, wild yeasts, battonage and fermentation on full solids in a high proportion of new French oak. A big boned Chardonnay of creamy acidity and the most stately structure, its myriad of undulating flavours and profound complexity intertwine and evolve around the solid core of exuberant, savoury fruit.

Two elite vineyards at Denmark provide the quality of Chardonnay requisite for the Il Liris style, superior sites which can deliver the intense oyster mineral character that's so necessary. A canon of select clones including the eminent Mendoza, are closely husbanded to manage leaf cover and crop load, airflow and light penetration without exposure. Grapes are all hand picked at different levels of ripeness over three separate pickings, chilled to 5°C and whole bunch pressed directly to a balance of low toast, seasoned and new tight grain French oak barriques for vinification and regular lees stirring for mouthfeel and structure. Bottled late November as oak and fruit come into perfect balance.
