An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971.

After founding Mornington's eminent Moorooduc Estate and decades crafting the most memorable vintages for Mornington's leading brands, Richard McIntyre established a tiny, single hectare vineyard, on a prominent, high elevation site at Arthur's Seat, with a view to producing limited yields of the most exquisite small batch wines. The techniques of choice are wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention and good French oak, with a nod to traditional Burgundian practices, which allow the wines to speak of provenance, express their specificity of clone and articulate their sense of place. There's not much Bellingham made but every bottle passes through the hands of.. Limited editions by the master of moorooduc»

Grant Burge's Filsell property is planted to vines almost a hundred years of age, it is considered one of the finest vineyards in Barossa Valley and consistently yields vintages of great intensity and concentration. The lower cropping and limited harvest of these stately old vines translates into a Shiraz of opulence and remarkable balance. All individual pickings of fruit are separately crushed and vinified. Juices reach 28C at the onset of ferments before being cooled to 22C for a week. Batches are pumped over thrice daily before a gentle press and transfer to a selection of new and seasoned American oak barrels and French hogsheads for completion of ferments and twenty months maturation.
Deep, dark red with purple hues. Nose of dark chocolate, licorice and lifted raspberry fruit over hints of lavender. The palate is full of intense red berry fruits, ripe blackberries and rhubarb infused by lifted spice and rich vanilla, milk chocolate notes. Beautifully weighted with optimal balance between ripe, concentrated fruit flavours, sweet spices, tannins and acidity. A silky, well rounded fleshy fruit style, to partner with oven braises or mature cheddar.
