Balgownie are one of our nation's great small vineyards, pioneers of the reprise in Bendigo viticulture, with the foresight to establish vines in 1969, the first local plantings in over eighty years. Grown to terrains very near the tailings of Victoria's original gold rush, the auspicious Balgownie vines yield discreet yet exquisite harvests of the most edifying and undervalued Victorian vintages. A bespoke favourite amongst enthusiasts of the old school style in elegant and finely boned Aussie Shiraz, Balgownie represent the essential accompaniment to meaty eggplant inspired recipes, or a princely roast of lamb, the best of..

Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale. The land remains in family hands, a graze for flocks of some highly fortunate.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»
Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants.

Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Kabinett CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Saar Germany
Weingut Egon Müller is arguably the final word in great Riesling wines. Müller makes nothing but Riesling and sources fruit exclusively from two estate properties at Wiltingen, the first growth Scharzhofberg and the prestigious Le Gallais vineyard. One of the most fortuitous winegrowing sites in the Rhineland, it contains two blocks of old vines, Kupp and Braune Kupp, which yield the finest fruit. In some vintages, the Riesling from these splendid sites can rival the grace and complexity of wines grown to the eminent Scharzhofberger Einzellage.

The highly elevated Le Gallais property at Wiltingen is notable for being one of the few Mosel vineyards that looks down onto the Saar rather than into one of her tributaries. The sheltered bend, between Kanzem and Wiltingen, is considered the best microclimate in the district. Weingut Egon Müller acquired half of the eminent estate in 1954, leasing the balance of the property from Madame Rochon. Braune Kupp Kabinett is 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, built for the long haul.
Light golden straw. Exotic nose of sweetly scented citrus, stonefruits and banana with florals and fragrant Bäckerei notes. Medium bodied palate exhibiting fine minerality and chalky acids in support of the rich, complex Riesling fruit characters, lime, honeysuckle and slate. Drinks beautifully on release and evolves magnificently.
