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 batch, limited release endeavours by Australian winemaking luminaries, are quietly advised to indulge their appetence and secure a case of Robin Brockett Pinot Noir, Syrah and/or Shiraz...

Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough New Zealand
Dog Point took the wine world by storm, purely on the basis of its exceptional Sauvignon Blanc. One of the oldest vineyards in Marlborough, Dog Point sold grapes to other companies until they began bottling wine under their own label. Topography, the lie of land and quality of soils are crucial to the character of Marlborough's remarkable world class vintages. Dog Point's vines are mostly planted to free draining silty clay loams on the flatter aspects of Marlborough, salubrious soils which infuse grapes with luscious citrus and grapefruit flavours.

Dog Point's older well established vines are planted to free draining silty clay loams, supported by harvests from closely planted hillside blocks. The philosophy at Dog Point is total involvement by the winemakers and partners within the vineyard, to make fully expressive wines. The standard of viticulture is a result of the considerable growing experience shared by the Sutherlands and Healys. One of the keys to the success of their label lies in the vineyard itself, fourteen full time workers attend to pampering the low cropped vines. Dog Point only release a few thousand cases a year, the estate is comprised of eighty hectares, a portion of which is retained by the eminent Cloudy Bay.
