He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior.. Pressing matters in pinot noir»

Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock.

The Greenstone property was acquired by viticulturalist Mark Walpole, Tuscan winemaker Alberto Antonini and Master of Wine David Gleave in 2003. Several different clones of Shiraz are grown to the old Cambrian soils of this splendid vineyard at Colbinabbin. Grapes are hand picked and transported to the Kooyong Winery at Mornington. Grapes are treated to a natural cold soak and vinified through the action of wild indegenous yeasts. After a fortnight's maceration in open top fermenters, the cap is punched down by hand to extract good colour and ripe tannins. Following completion of ferments, Greenstone is matured up to twenty months in a combination of new and prior use French oak barriques.
Deep ruby/ purple coloured. Lifted perfumes displaying a lovely ripe, brambly spicy fruit on the nose. Combines the elegance of mid Victorian Shiraz with the depth and weight that characterise wines from Heathcote. On the palate, the rich, dark plum fruit is weighty yet nicely balanced by the supple, the low levels of oak permit the Shiraz fruit to shine through, dense, nicely layered and long, elegant and finely balanced.
