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»
An Irish cobbler named Reilly settled into the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro circa 1856. He converted a stone barn into a homestead cottage.

Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by.. The bushranger's brew»

An entrepreneurial type, he also operated a coach service from stables behind the cellar door, despatching supplies and delivering mail around the central Victorian goldfields.

The barely irrigated, old Barossa vineyards, blessed by exceptional soils and idyllic aspects, yield harvests of superlative Shiraz which reflect the character of each unique mesoclime. The choicest parcels are treated to a traditional open fermentation and basket press. Paul Lindner practices old world techniques with obsolete equipment to unlock and exploit full potential of flavours held in the grapes, triumphing in a powerful fruit driven wine that exhibits subtle complexity and discernible vineyard character. A minimal amount of handling and filtration preserves intense flavours, followed by transfer into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for two years maturation.
Very deep crimson with purple hues. Lifted aromas of raspberry and satsuma plum are complimented by fine milk chocolate, vanilla and hints of butter, smoked and roasted nuances. Sweet primary fruits transfer to the palate which is full and well balanced with briary spice and fine firm oak tannins. The finish is very long, youthful and fruit driven.
