Adam Marks is a chicken enthusiast. In his pursuit of the ultimate eating fowl, Marks traced a route throughout the barnyards, orchards and vineyards of La Belle France. He ultimately settled on the Harcourt Valley of greater Bendigo to establish his own agricultural concern in 2004. Succulent roasting chickens and ripe juicy apples soon gave way to a range of world class wines, which are defined by their regional eloquence, sublime excellence and bucolic grace. The Vineyard Bress is a place of pristine soils, cheerful livestock and breathtaking pastoral charm. The wines speak for themselves, crafted to the most painstaking, small batch vinification techniques. They are a powerful and articulate expression of fruit, framed by a soupcon of tannins, complexed by the disposition of vintage, terroir and clime... Halcyon harvests of harcourt valley»
The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west.

Vines are cane pruned and shoot thinning is performed as early as possible in September to ensure a low number of shoots per vine to create an open canopy. This provides good air circulation and even ripening. Summer pruning on the northern side promotes a relatively early harvest. Hand picked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before being run to barrel or fermenters for vinification at low temperatures to preserve vital fruit characters. The French oak component is lees stirred over the course of three months to promote oak integration and textural complexity. Parcels are assembled into a style which can best achieve great elegance, character and depth. Alcohol 12.5%
A brilliant medium straw colour. Bouquet of citrus, stonefruit and developed lees richness. Oyster shell complexity with hints of caramel, barrel ferments and vanilla. A wonderful mineral texture on the taut, fruit filled palate, offering great length while exhibiting drying grapefruit characters, peaches and nectarine, smooth complex texture and effortless balance.
