Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to..

There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

The 1890s brought boom years to the nascent Aussie wine industry, as connoisseurs throughout Europe and the Empire were introduced to the Dionysian delights of new world Claret by Tyrrell, St Huberts and Wirra Wirra.

The Taylor family acquired the fallow farm in 1995 and brought St Andrew's vines back to life.

Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Kevin John Cullen was a passionate believer in the quality of Margaret River wines and particularly for the potential to achieve one of the world's great Chardonnay growing regions. He established the International Chardonnay Tasting, now in its third decade, to enable the efforts of Margaret River to be compared alongside the best vintages from around the world. Kevin John anticipated that the lessons learned from these comparisons would inspire his winemaking team to optimise the quality of Chardonnay grapes grown to the Cullen estate vineyards.

Diane Madeline has found her oenological paramour. Kevin John is named after the estate patriarch and shares provenance with the most stately Margaret River Chardonnay. Grapes are picked at ideal physiological ripeness, after achieving healthy profiles of natural sugars. Acid levels in the fruit grown by Cullen are remarkable, with low pH and fine balance, making any additions for adjustment unnecessary. Chardonnay is harvested around the full moon to a cycle in accordance with the best biodynamic practices. Grapes are whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in French oak barriques, two thirds of which are new, followed by partial malolactic and five months maturation.
Brilliant straw colour with green tinges. Already complex, combining delightfully fresh citrus, paw paw, matchstick, gardenia and almond aromas. Complex, cultivated and engaging palate, the fresh vibrant citrus flavours and attractive minerality lead into a crisp lingering and long finish that's characterised by refined acidity. Delicious, elegant, pure and intense, a Chardonnay of great personality and charm to accompany crustacea and supreme de volaille.
