Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

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.
