Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage. Bellvale remains artisanally small batch, just..

There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial..

Dalrymple Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Pipers Brook Tasmania
Nestled in a cocoon of mixed vegetation and rolling hills, Dalrymple enjoys a unique and seductive aspect shared by only a few boutique vineyards within the Pipers River region. This succulent and fresh, exclusively Pipers Brook Pinot Noir is fashioned from grapes that are chosen for their juicy flavours of ripe red berries, raspberry and plum. A natural ferment is encouraged and Burgundian techniques are applied, culminating in a complex yet harmonious wine that sings of fresh fruit and offers supple, velvety textures, built to be fully approachable while young.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12

Each block of Pinot Noir from the Dalrymple Vineyard and choice grower sites is hand picked and kept separate throughout the winemaking. Low bunch numbers and medium bunch weights, a perfect vine balance that translates into perfect fruit. Some blocks are divided into smaller parcels thereby maximising options at assemblage. A number of traditional techniques are employed, hand sorting the fruit, cold soaking, whole bunch inclusion, hand plunging and wild ferments, all designed to create wines that combine fruit intensity with layers of texture and persistent varietal character. The finished Dalrymple is aged for up to a year in a mix of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques.
Vibrant dark rose petal colour. Perfumed nose of rose petals and lavender, fresh strawberries and raspberry complemented by pomegranates and rosewater. The fruit is supported by delicate spice and dried savoury herbs, the oak is balanced and sweet. A warming, vibrant palate offering fleshy red cherry characters and mouth filling textures. Seductive and creamy, balanced by supple tannins and charming natural acidity.
