The very first blocks of vine planted at Scotchmans Hill, are now in their fourth decade. Set aside for bottling as a range of limited release, single vineyard wines, they represent the first growth of viticulture from the fertile crescent of Port Phillip's western shore. Crafted to traditional old world techniques, very similar to the great Crus of la Bourgogne, they afford the true enthusiast an opportunity to engage with the decadent delights of the greater Geelong, as sampled alongside Gruyere, game and the finest gourmandise...

Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's..

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
The Heathcote Wineworks were one of the first commercial wineries in central Victoria. Prominently placed along Heathcote's main boulevard, established by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune.

Henschke Keyneton Estate Euphonium CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot Cabernet Franc Barossa Eden South Australia
Johann Christian Henschke purchased land around the tiny village of Keyneton in 1861 after fleeing religious persecution in Silesia. Keyneton grew to become a cultural focus for early Barossa settlers, not least of all was the Henschke Family Brass Band! The B flat euphonium, imported to Australia from Leipzig in the late nineteenth century by musical entrepreneur Carl Engel of Adelaide, was the Henschke favourite. Just like the namesake Henschke wine, a euphonium exhibits warmer and more subtle tonal qualities than it's louder modern counterparts.

Named after the early English pioneer Joseph Keynes who settled at Keyneton in 1842. Cyril Henschke established a large planting of predominantly Riesling and Shiraz at Keyneton during a time when riesling was scarce and bonuses were being paid by the large wineries. Today the Shiraz from Keyneton is reserved for Euphonium. A mostly Shiraz wine with smaller components of Merlot, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc, grown to the Eden and Barossa Valleys, vinified at the Henschke Road wineworks at Keyneton into a soft, easy to enjoy wine. Components are treated to eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and prior use French and American oak hogsheads.
Very deep crimson in colour. A complex bouquet of plums, blackberries, mulberry and cassis with savoury nuances of tar and roasted meats. The sweet, rich and plush palate has a fleshy texture with great depth flavour and concentration, beautifully balanced by velvety grained tannins and excellent length.
