There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole..

Morris of Rutherglen Bin 158 Durif CONFIRM VINTAGE

Durif Rutherglen Victoria
George Francis Morris established a small vineyard in 1859, just two miles east of the current Mia Mia Morris family wineworks. The first Durif vines were planted in the 1920s but it was not until Mick Morris, the first Morris family winemaker to be university educated, released his Durif under the pseudonym Claret in 1954. A Rutherglen specialty, Durif is a characteristically big wine, originally imported from Hermitage by Victoria's legendary viticulturalist Francois de Castella circa 1908.

The finest parcels of Rutherglan Durif are harvested and crushed into open fermenters. The small berries yield a great concentration of flavours with high alcohol, dark colour and soft tannins, making a style of wine that's renowned for structure and longevity. Vinification is controlled, initially at cooler temperatures to maintain fresh varietal fruit characters, gradually rising to warmer temperatures, for optimal extractions of good colour and fine tannins. After several days of open ferments, batches are pressed into an equal balance of seasoned and new, American and French oak hogsheads for completion of malolactic and two years maturation before the final assemblage.
Deep brickish red with purple hues. Lifted fresh aromas of ripe blackcurrant and spicy fruits, complexed by a subtle influence of cedar. Rich, supple, concentrated berry flavours integrated with fruit and oak tannins, a very good length of flavour. A magical drink to acccompany meats and grills, heaven sent for rare sirloin, the perfect match to venison and game.
