Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot.

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 estate moniker.

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

Delatite Dead Mans Hill Gewurztraminer CONFIRM VINTAGE

Gewurtztraminer was one of Delatite's first plantings, it has continued to deliver the most memorable, award winning vintages. Deadman's Hill is widely regarded as the benchmark in Australia, the first Traminer ever to be selected for Qantas International First Class. Deadman's Hill is a hundred metres higher than the other vineyards at Delatite and has been dry grown for most of it's life. It was the first part of the vineyard to be converted to Bio Dynamics and like all other blocks at Delatite, it is completely pruned and picked by hand.

The steep ironstone slopes and crisp mountain airs at Delatite provide an idyllic mesoclime for the spicey Gewurtztraminer, which demands slow ripening to develop fully. Hand pruned, hand picked and patiently sorted by the winemakers themselves, fruit is whole bunch pressed, the musts are chilled and left in the press for a term of cold soak. Some of the settling lees are retained within the clear juices as indigenous yeasts begin a wild ferment, slow and cool for a month. A component is treated to vinification in larger format oak vats for richness and complexity. Batches are held on lees for with periodic stirring to infuse yeast autolysis, bottled with minimum fuss for the retention of pure varietal charm.
A straw coloured wine. The aromas are a melange of cinnamon and clove, rose petal, lychee and musk which follow through to the richly flavoured palate. Flavours of hazelnut and toast, cardammon, lychee and ginger biscuit, clove and turkish delights. Decidedly Traminer, a wine which deserves to be appreciated today alongside crustacea, Asian recipes and all spiced faire.
