Halls Gap Vineyard was planted 1969, along the steep eastern slopes and parched rocky crags of Grampians Ranges, at the very beginning of a renaissance in Victorian viticulture. Since early establishment in the 1860s by the noble Houses of Seppelt and Bests, the region had earned the most elite peerage, a provenance of extraordinary red wines, bursting with bramble opulence and lined with limousin tannins. The Halls Gap property had long been respected as a venerable supplier to the nation's most illustrious brands. Seppelt and Penfolds called on harvests from Halls Gap for their finest vintages. Until 1996, when it was acquired by the late, great Trevor Mast, who was very pleased to bottle Hall Gap's fruit behind the exhalted label of Mt Langi Ghiran.

Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure.

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.
