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,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»

The Moppity winemaking team make every effort in the vineyard to promote the quality of fruit. Minimal irrigation, bunch thinning and careful pruning ensure low yields of highly concentrated grapes, to achieve wines of great flavour intensity and regional varietal distinction. The Hilltops climate is cool to moderate and summer rainfall is low, a long, even ripening period supports flavour and colour development, underpinning the intensity of the wines. Parcels of single vineyard, estate grown Riesling grapes are crushed, before batches of exclusively free run juices are separated and treated to a temperature controlled cold fermentation and early bottling to capture and preserve the vital Riesling characters.
Pale straw colour. Highly aromatic style with exotic spicy notes and ripe limes. Fine, crisp and well balanced, making for an elegant wine with good persistence. The generous fruit is well tempered by fine, clean, bracing acidity, the palate is long and racy, culminating on a clean, zippy finish. Excellent and will continue to develop complex honey and toast characters. Enjoy with the freshest seafood or delicate white meats.
