Halls Gap Vineyard was planted 1969, along the steep eastern slopes and parched rocky crags of Grampians Ranges, at the very beginning of a renaissance in Victorian viticulture. Since early establishment in the 1860s by the noble Houses of Seppelt and Bests, the region had earned the most elite peerage, a provenance of extraordinary red wines, bursting with bramble opulence and lined with limousin tannins. The Halls Gap property had long been respected as a venerable supplier to the nation's most illustrious brands. Seppelt and Penfolds called on harvests from Halls Gap for their finest vintages. Until 1996, when it was acquired by the late, great Trevor Mast, who was very pleased to bottle Hall Gap's fruit behind the exhalted label of Mt Langi Ghiran. Halls.. Land of the fallen giants»

Forest Hill can lay claim to producing some of Western Australia's finest Shiraz grapes. The winemaking facility itself is closely managed to vinify the exceptional fruit into a solidly structured, vigorous wine. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into open fermenters for a cold soak, inoculation and two or three pumpovers daily throughout the ferments. Vinifications are capped at 25°C to prevent over extraction of tannins locked in the skins. A short spell of maceration is followed by transfer to barrel for malolactic where the wine integrates and softens. Matured sixteen months in a combination of new and seasoned, Francois Freres and Sirugue French oak barriques.
Deep red with purple hue. Lifted aromas of blue berries and plum, hints of subtle spice and earthy notes. Underlying savoury oak characters add complexity and evolve in the glass. Medium bodied palate with plum and blackberry flavours following through with subtle hints of earthiness and white pepper spice. Well integrated cedary oak flavours featuring fine chewy tannins and a firm rich mouth feel.
