Legendary Penfold winemaker John Duval began his apprenticeship in 1974 under the tutelage of the late great Max Schubert.

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.. Satiations from the nethermost regions»
The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»
Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to..

Mitchelton Print Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Goulburn Victoria
A flagship Victoran effort, traditionally crafted from Shiraz grapes picked off the oldest and most superior blocks within the Mitchelton estate vineyard. The vines receive little water so they drive their gnarled roots deep down through the sandy soil layers in search of moisture. These veteran vines are naturally devigorated and unirrigated, meticulosuly managed by hand, ensuring precious yields of small, intensely flavoured berries which are reserved for the creation of this eminent edition of Victorian Shiraz.

Predominantly from the Old Faithful Crescent and D Blocks, a third of fruit is picked off an elite block at Heathcote, contributing structure and complexity. Grapes are treated to an extended skin contact for up to three weeks, extracting deep colour and soft tannins. A temperatuture controlled, submerged cap vinification in potters and small open fermenters is followed by transfer to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels from select cooperages, for completion of malolactic and eighteen months maturation. Parcels remain on lees and remained unracked to preserve freshness, individually barrel selected in blind tastings before determining the final assemblage.
Intense deep purple, violet hues. Rich aromas of brandied cherry, smoked charcuterie and festive pudding, a nose that continually shifts in and out of red currant/ mulberry reduction sauce, mocha, cocoa and kirsch. A finely boned wine which balances the power of fruit with a delicacy of structure. Rich, opulent fruit marries with cinnamon/ nutmeg/ aniseed spice, all framed by a structure of chocolatey textured tannins which partner the persistence of flavour perfectly.
