Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their pesetas and avail themselves of a case or two Walkerville Pinot Noir, a mere few hundred..

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are commonly cited as one of the great vineyards of the world, regularly sampled at international competitions against illustrious icons such as Romanee Conti and Chateau Lafite, Vega Sicilia and Chateau..

Lightfoot Sons Myrtle Point Rose CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Gippsland Victoria
Myrtle Point Vineyard was established in the 1990s, after a soil mapping of the region identified tracts of precious Terra rosa over limestone substrate. The fortuitous soils are enhanced by the temperate growing seasons to form a mesoclime, very like the splendid terroirs of La Belle France. Ferments through the action of Rosé specific yeast, retain the precociousness of Pinot Noir, just picked from the vineyard, while infusing into the blushing pink wine, fruity fragrances and a redolent, ripe berry palate.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$251.00
Fashioned to piquant de Provence styling, grapes are gently destemmed and crushed by gravity through the press, treated to four hours cold soak for just the right amount of pigment without any uptake of heavy tannin. Batches are coolly fermented through the action of a Rosé specific yeast strain, followed by early bottling to retain the fresh vibrancy of pink Pinot Noir. Alcohol 12.9%
Lovely bright salmon pink colour. Lifted floral nose, ripe strawberry over spiced cherry notes. A vibrant, soundly structured palate in fresh and delicate Rose styling, elegant and delicious, lined with cool climate fruit characters before a crisp, drying finish. Match with salmon steaks or a basil, olive and goat cheese pisaladiere.
