Josef Chromy OAM escaped from war torn Czechoslovakia as a penniless 19 year old in 1950, he fled across minefields, evading soldiers and killer dogs, ultimately finding a new home in the lucky country.

The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the..

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.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
Geoff Hardy's family have been making Australian wine since 1857. Geoff grew up amongst the most distinguished vineyards in our land and he knows from good red wine. He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages.

A wine of pure Barossa fruit by a master who loves Cabernet Shiraz and is devoted to his valley home. Vines are encouraged to allow maximum development of varietal characters and concentration of flavour. Fruit is picked at complete ripeness from Burge’s own estate vineyards and those of distinguished Barossa growers. Grapes are crushed, de-stemmed and fermented over the course of a week, pumped over daily for optimal extractions. Free runs and pressing are racked and returned for deep colour and sound structure, followed by a term of age in a selection of the finest seasoned oak barrels.
Dark red in colour, vibrant purple hue. A rich, ripe style packing a big punch on the aroma, complex fusion of ripe plum and cassis, spiced cherry fruit characters, vanillin oak, subtle milk chocolate sweetness, leather and cedar notes. The palate is luscious, full bodied fruit flavours fill the middle, with hints of licorice, plum and subtle vanilla cream. Finishes to fine, silky tannins and a lingering fruit driven finish.
