There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Strathbogie Victoria
An exclusively Strathbogie Ranges Shiraz, most of the grapes come from Rocky Hill Block at Whitegate, with a further component from Block 6 at Upton Run. The magic of this wine evolves while ageing in a collection of very old, large English oak casks. These barrels are home to a hundred years of bugs and bacteria which impart complexity, allowing the wine to breath, integrating fruit and taming the tannins. A beguiling wine of striking colour and elevated aromas, pristine fruit and a persistent, flavourful finish which conjures up images of wilderness and game.
Available in cartons of six
Case of 6

Shiraz is inoculated to various yeast strains and vinified at 23°C under swept arm fermenters, which tend to develop vibrant perfumes and gripping tannins in the finished wine. A number of ferments create a shallow cap for good extractions. AWRI796 is a neutral yeast which permits the grape and terroir to express itself. Enoferm Syrah is a high glycerol producer which contributes mouthfeel while enhancing the bouquet, contributing violets and black pepper. Upon completion, the majority of components spend time in large, well seasoned 5000 Litres English oak casks. The balance is treated to maturation in a selection of seasoned and new, French oak hogsheads and puncheons.
Deep red, youthful, purple at the rim. A well perfumed wine with highly aromatic nose exhibiting violets, pepper and spice. Restrained chocolate oak behind a complexity of dried fruit characters. Rich, dark fruit flavours on the full bodied palate, concentrated and offering very good length.
