The Halls Gap property had long been respected as a venerable supplier to the nation's most illustrious brands. Seppelt and Penfolds called on harvests from Halls Gap for their finest vintages. Until 1996, when it was acquired by the late, great Trevor Mast, who was very pleased to bottle Hall Gap's fruit behind the exhalted label of Mt Langi Ghiran. Halls Gap joined the tally of Circe estate vineyards in 2013, whence it yields a wine that's earmarked for icon status by the most discerning industry pundits, now branded under the cryptic moniker of Fallen Giants...

Tenuta di Biserno is planted to Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot with a view to exploiting the unique soils which are very akin to those found in Bordeaux. Grapes are all picked by hand into 15 kg crates and taken to the Biserno wineworks where they are individually sorted, de-stemmed and gently crushed. The musts are vinified for three to four weeks at 28C before being treated to full malolactic in a selection of barrels and fermenters. Two thirds of the wines are matured twelve months in a combination of new and second use French oak barriques, the balance is aged in vats. Assembled and bottled, the finished Pino di Biserno is rested a further six months in bottle before release.
Intense, bright ruby red. Ripe, soft fruit aromatics, spice, eucalyptus and Mediterranean maquis. A fruit filled palate, ripe acids and supple oak supported by fine tannins before a long, elegant finish.
