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..

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.

It was seized by the French government after the revolution and part of it was passed to the Müller family in 1797. Egon Müller IV makes Spätlese from grapes of superior ripeness.

Scharzhofberger is one of the finest vineyards in Germany and indeed all Europe. So great is its fame, it remains one of only a handful of German vineyards, whose wines are sold without mention of the village name. Soils are composed of grey and red slates, very loose and well drained, they form a unique synergy with the microclimate to provide singular conditions for Riesling. Riesling grapes exhibiting the requisite qualities of a Spätlese are fermented mostly through the action of wild yeasts in old, thousand litres oak foudres. The wines are raised in ancient cellars which were built by mediaeval monks. The deep, very cold and damp environments make the perfect environment in which to gently age the wines.
Light golden hue. Subtle florals to the bouquet, peach nectar and citrus oils, honey and herb. A judiciously ripe palate exhibiting delicate fruit characters with hints of honeyed botrytis and citrus florals which are supported by a vivid crystalline structure and chillingly fresh acidity. A beguiling finish on lingering notes of juicy fruit/ floral/ nut flavours.
