Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple isle, a no expense spared approach in the elevage and quality of oak, the wines of Clarence House are a treat for enthusiasts on a quest to procure the elusive vintages of an original Van Diemen's Chateau...

Golden Ball Bona Fide Savagnin CONFIRM VINTAGE

Savignin Beechworth Victoria
There's a curious clone of grape that's closely related to Traminer and which seems to appear without explanation in disparate vineyards around the world. Golden Ball introduces the suave Savignin in flamboyant French styling, barrel fermented in seasoned oak, treated to the opulence of six months lees stirring battonage and a judicious term of age. Its long textural palate of lemon curd creamyness, animated by the crunch of crisp mineral, pursing the cheeks with the juicyness of crabapple and citrus green, Savignin that resonates and sings.
