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. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their pesetas and avail themselves of a case or two Walkerville Pinot Noir, a mere few hundred..

Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes are sheep herding, river fishing and making smoked goose sausages. The wines of Dalrymple Estate have established a quiet repute amongst devotees of the more elegant Tasmanian styling, enduring exemplars of delicacy, effortless refinement and the most exquisite balance, eloquent of a magnificent terroir...

Dr Gladstones was a long time friend of the late Jack Mann, pioneer of the West Australian wine industry and mentor of Houghton wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the Batley vineyard in the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River. The red granite gravel loam soils, maritime climate and twenty year old vines contribute to producing wines with richness, structure and intensity. Fruit is hand picked, crushed and vinified in small 2T and 5T open fermenters, hand plunged then pressed to tank, settled and racked directly to a selection of new and one year old Bordeaux coopered French oak barriques. Gladstones is minimally handled throughout its life in oak, until assemblage, sixteen months after vintage.
Intense deep purple red with vibrant scarlet hues. High intensity and attractive aromatics of berry fruits, cassis and cigar box. Underlying aromas of star anise and charry oak spice provide wonderful complexity. The dense and structural palate is balanced by fine, firm tannins. Will impress as a youth and evolve over many years.
