The 1890s brought boom years to the nascent Aussie wine industry, as connoisseurs throughout Europe and the Empire were introduced to the Dionysian delights of new world Claret by Tyrrell, St Huberts and Wirra Wirra. An enterprising family of Scots took heed of the times to plant grapevines on a uniquely auspicious block in Valley Clare, they called it St Andrew and produced forty vintages of the most sensational quality Claret until the 1930s. The Taylor family acquired the fallow farm in 1995 and brought St Andrew's vines back to life. The treasured block endures as home to the flagship range of Taylor wines, one of the most distinguished vineyards in all Australia.

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.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

Leeuwin Estate Leeuwin Siblings Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia
Margaret River makes famously intense, deeply stylish Shiraz, somewhat more sanguine and evocative than its distant relations from winegrowing regions further afield. The balmy maritime breezes and cooler nights produce a Shiraz wine that conjures up impressions of the prevailing mistral winds of Valley Rhone. Slightly more forward drinking than the estate flagships, Sibling is endowed with layers of radiant olive/plum fruit characters and piquant spice characters, supported by excellent length of the most graceful tannins.

Leeuwin Estate was at the very apex of Margaret River viticulture. Originally a cattle farm, it was developed under the auspices of American wine industry legend Robert Mondavi. The property was deeply ploughed and deep ripped, emptied of stone, pegged and planted by hand in the 1970s. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979 and was thrust into the international spotlight when UK Decanter gave its highest recommendation to the Art Series Chardonnay in an international blind tasting. Leeuwin now maintains a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, still under management of the resourceful Mondavi family.
A brilliant deep ruby/ violet hue. Bouquet displays black pepper with nuances of spicy clove wrapped around blackberry and satsuma plum fruit which is further strengthened by spicy French oak. A medium weight wine showing an increasing intensity of flavour with dark raspberries and satsuma plums on the palate. Extremely soft and approachable through the middle with fine grain tannins contributing to an excellent wine of elegance, balance and power.
