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»
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 estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera. Grove Estate's Flanders Fields is a decidedly Chardonnay dominant effervescent Cuvee, a true Methode.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

A wonderful example of intense, pure Clare Valley Riesling from the estate's Ackland Vineyard at Watervale. Good growers on elevated slate sites from a little further north in the Clare Valley also contribute fruit. All the grapes are hand picked and gently crushed, only the best free run juices are retained. Knappstein is made with minimal intervention to preserve purity of fruit expression. Juices are cold settled prior to a long fermentation with neutral yeast at low temperatures, all the way to dryness, lasting between fourteen and eighteen days to preserve the delicate flavours and aromas. Upon completion the wine is racked off yeast followed by a light filtration prior to taste trials and assemblage.
Straw lime colour. Lifted citrus aromas with distinct notes of slate and spice. The palate displays classic Watervale characters of lemon and lime with a fine mineral structure. Showing wonderful depth of flavour, a distinct delicacy and liveliness. The natural acid level provides the wine's backbone and palate line and is perfectly balanced even in the wine's youth.
