Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir of pasture and of place, both finished to delight the senses and to excite the most inscrutable.. It's irrewarra by farr»
Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by their affable excellence, sound structure and pristine, penetrating varietal fruit...

Great wines from the Great Southern, the nether southwest rump of the continent, which yields the most astonishing quality vintages, both red and white. Castelli are a family of renewable power engineers, who are at their happiest picking grapes off vines. Boutique and very hands on, their efforts have been rewarded by prestigious international accolades, including Royal Perth Trophy for Best Chardonnay, San Francisco and International Wine Challenge Gold for Cabernet Sauvignon, Sydney Blue Gold for Shiraz. Defined by weighty palates, edifying complexity and statuesque grace, the entire range of Castelli represent an inspiring opportunity for immersion into the chiselled and strapping, stately Great Southern styling...

Mitchell Peppertree Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
Yes there really is an old pepper tree which grows on the Mitchell Watervale vineyard, a happy coincidence, as the nose and palate exhibits the exemplary varietal spice and pepper characters of super fine Shiraz. Vinfied from the fruit of vines up to fifty years of age or more, the amiable Peppertree is full flavoured and features a soft, almost velvety palate, harmoniously integrated and very easy to drink in its youth, with the quality and structure to mature gracefully while developing wonderful complexities.

Jane Mitchell takes an active role in the Clare Winemakers Association and was one of the first appointees to the South Australian Tourism Commission. Currently she sits on the Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and has recently finished a six year term with the Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board. Shiraz is picked at optimum ripeness and fermented on skins to extract maximum flavours and character. Exactingly vinified to an earthy Rhonesque styling, fruit, oak, acidity and tannins are present in the right proportions. Eighteen months maturation in small French oak barrels adds complexity to one of Clare Valley's most cherished wines.
Rich, deep red colour. Bouquet offers sweet spices of nutmeg and clove which combine with a touch of pepper, anise and cedar spice. Ripe Shiraz flavours, dark chocolate with hints of liquorice. The silky mouth coating tannins add a gentle firmness and elegant structure to the wine.
