Mitchell's largest vineyard is at Watervale, a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. It is known by the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz only ever yields minimal harvests, source of the most memorable vintages in our nation's.. These old clare valley vines are just getting better»
Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale. The land remains in family hands, a graze for flocks of some highly fortunate lamb. In between the paddocks, blocks of Sam.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»
Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and branded their Metala fruit as Brothers In Arms... The goodly farms of brothers in arms»

Hugel sources Pinot Gris from the finest growers in Alsace, to be vinified around a backbone of estate grown fruit. Grapes are hand picked off vines, twenty five years of age, planted to clay and limestone soils on steeply sloped vineyards, within a dozen of the finer precincts around Riquewihr. Bunches are gathered in small tubs and treated to a gravity filled press, retaining the pristine qualities of grapes. Juices are decanted for a few hours before fermentation in temperature controlled barrels or vats at 18°C to 24°C. Components are racked upon completion and cold settled throughout winter for natural clarification. Batches are lightly filitered in the spring, bottled and sent to the Hugel cellars for maturation.
Intense lemon yellow hue. Alluring nose of orange and acacia, honey and apricots, almond and greengage, lightly smoked brioche. Perfectly dry palate offering an abundance of soft fleshy fruit flavours. Juicy, full bodied, a long lingering, textural finish. Drinking magnificently immediately upon release, Hugel matches well to richly sauced white recipes, veal and champignon or crayfish mornay.
