Jane Mitchell is one of Clare Valley's leading wine industry identities, Clare Valley Legend and Clare Valley Winemakers Hall of Fame, Centenary Federation of Australia Medal, SA Tourism Commission, Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board.

Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association. He remains a lifelong member of the Penola Pipe Band. For those who like their wines structured yet satin, powerful yet prettily.. The old sheep shearer's shanty»

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

Cullen Diana Madeline Cabernet Merlot 1.5L MAGNUM CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Petit Verdot Malbec Cabernet Franc Margaret River Western Australia
Langton's Exceptional Classification. Diana Madeline is one of Australia's great icon wines, crafted from fruit grown to one of Margaret River's earliest sites. The vines, planted in 1971, provide a scant two tons per acre, yielding grapes of amazing concentration. Cullen have returned to the old world practice of basket pressing. To their delight, they have found that this leads to the extraction of only the finest tannins. A stately construct in statuesque Bordeaux styling, deeply coloured, the extraordinary depth of flavour reflects an outstanding quality of fruit.

In accordance with biodynamic principles, all fruit is hand harvested from vines up to forty years of age. A patented MistralĀ® apparatus removes the leaf material and infertile berries from the vineyard, providing cleaner bunches. A luxurious cepage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the grapes are carefully sorted before fermentation to indigenous yeasts and malolactic bacteria. No acid or cultured yeasts are added, achieving a wine with a sense of place through a completely natural process. Components are separately vinified before being treated to nineteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques.
Delicate crimson, garnet ruby hue. Plum, mulberry and blackcurrant aromas cascade out of the glass accompanied by elevated notes of violet and rose. Savoury ironstone and tobacco complete the classic aroma profile of Diana Madeline. Fine grained tannins with uplifting and sustained fruit notes. Red fruit and plum flavours connect with the ironstone minerality, providing backbone and structure. Medium bodied, elegant, the depth and length are profound, proverbial fist in a velvet glove.
