Three British Army officers, in their capacity as agents of the East India Company, established one of Western Australia's first agricultural enterprises in 1836. Named after Captain Richmond Houghton, it was not until Thomas Yule's stewardship that vines were planted and the first vintage of Houghton wine flowed in 1859. Thomas Yule now sources fruit from the eminent Justin Vineyard in Frankland River, a dark ruby Shiraz of lifted liquorice and intense brambleberry, seasoned by piquant pepper notes and supported by showroom tannins.

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 enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

Moppity Lock Key Sparkling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Pinot Noir Hilltops Tumbarumba New South Wales
Lock & Key is a reference to ancestors who were brought to New South Wales as convicts aboard Australia's second fleet. A generously proportioned Pinot Chardonnay, the first sparkling wine to be made from fruit grown to the blossoming Hilltops region. Moppity Vineyard's original plantings are nearing forty years of age, some of the oldest stock in southern New South Wales. These mature, low yielding vines don't deliver much fruit but the precious grapes are wonderfully concentrated and produce the most remarkable sparkling wine.

The Moppity team endeavour to promote the somewhereness of site. There's nothing generic about Lock & Key wines, they reflect unique geographic origins. Moppity Vineyard's microclimate is cool to moderate with a long, even ripening period, which supports flavour development and underpins the intensity of the wines. Although early spring frost is an issue, the property is sited on undulating terrain, ensuring adequate frost drainage. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is harvested in the cool of night at optimum ripeness to preserve freshness of fruit. Only the cleanest free run juices are cold fermented to retain aromatics and primary fruit. A secondary fermentation is initiated at Peterson's Champagne House.
Bright, vibrant, pale straw with a very fine bead. Complex aromas of bright lemon, green apple and stonefruit. Citrus and stone fruit flavours prevail, the wine shows a creamy texture and fine natural acid. Lock & Key is a bright, lively vintage sparkling wine with plenty of fresh citrus flavour, a wonderful effervescence and a rich, creamy mouthfeel. An excellent sparkling wine fit for any occasion worth celebrating.
