Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak..

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
By those wonderful folks who bring us Shaw & Smith. Tolpuddle was planted to vine in 1988, on a highly precious site along Back Tea Tree Road, just outside of Hobart. The inaugural vintage claimed Tasmanian Vineyard of Year in 2006. The illustrious Messrs Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith acquired the property in 2011, with a view to elevating the excruciatingly limited release Tolpuddle to the status of a national Grand Cru.

Morris of Rutherglen 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.
