Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat.

Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot. Victoria's Gippsland is a place of paradise for vintages in the Burgundy style, a oenological wonderland of restrained releases from vivid little vineyards. Enthusiasts en route to a discovery..

Moppity Lock Key Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltops New South Wales
Moppity have claimed many conspicuous accolades at national wine shows and international competitions. Their property sits at the highest elevation of the Hilltops region, its distinguished vines are among the eldest in the area, the source of fruit for many memorable vintages including the 2009 Jimmy Watson winner.

The Hilltops climate is cool to moderate, Moppity's vines are planted to dark red volcanic granitic clays, impregnated with basalt. Summer rainfall is low such that vine vigour can be readily controlled to optimise the quality of fruit. A long, even ripening period supports flavour development and underpins the intensity of the wines. Although early spring frost is an issue in the district, Moppity Vineyard is sited on undulating terrain, ensuring adequate frost drainage. Cabernet grapes are treated to a cold soak for the extraction of flavours, colour and tannin, followed by a fortnight of fermentation and a term of maturation in a selection of seasoned and new, French oak hogsheads and barriques.
Vibrant purple colour. Lifted dark berries with hints of mint and dried herbs. Palate displays a varietal integrity which belies its pricepoint. Packed with blackcurrant, cedar and forest fruits and a tannin structure that elevates it from the plethora of early drinking Cabernets. A very generous and stylish wine with beautiful balance that delivers incredible value for money, pair it off with lamb, oregano and roast vegetables.
