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 Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage. Aficianados of small..

Devilish thinking is not only encouraged, but celebrated at Devil's Lair. The Hidden Cave range is all about the established style of wines that Margaret River does best, cannily crafted with a slightly devilish twist. The viticultural team are charged each year, with the mission of assembling the finest Margaret River harvests to fashion articulate regional wines. Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are treated to a crush and term of cold soak, inoculated in controlled fermenters and vinified at closely managed temperatures. Upon completion of ferments and a course of malolactic, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
Rich purple with garnet hues. A nose that's instantly recognisable as Margaret River, cassis and cigar box notes, black and blue berries. A currant and brambleberry flavoured palate, fine elegant tannins are woven around a core of sweet black cherries and cassis. A wine that evolves in the glass as layers of fruit awaken. A lingering spice on the intensely aromatic, berry filled finish.
