Old Richmond Gaol was one of Diemen Land's first prisons, built by the convicts themselves, of good old fashioned granite blocks, laboriously hauled in wooden hand carts and quarried from the ominously monikered Butchers Hill. Today, Butchers Hill is the site of the steepest sloping vineyard in Coal River Valley, invigorated by afternoon sea breezes and prevailing winds from the roaring forties, its highly auspicious, self mulching black Vertosols, yield extraordinary wines. Established by founding members of the Hobart Beefsteak & Burgundy Club, Butchers Hill represents three generations of passion amongst the nether vineyards of the Apple Isle. Not just a..

Refreshed after nightfall by the invigorating maritime winds off Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay, it's a place of exceptional winegrowing.

Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s. At Milawa, Mondeuse translates into an inky, deeply tannic wine, it forms synergies with the sweet fruit plumpness of Shiraz and statuesque elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon to coalesce into a rich, opulent style of eloquence and structure...

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..

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.
