At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty..

Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland..

Mount Pleasant Rosehill Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Hunter Valley New South Wales
When Maurice O'Shea bought the Rosehill property with the support of the McWilliam family in 1946, he was looking for a similar site to that of Mt Pleasant. What he found was a parcel of rich, volcanic loam, idyllic soils which he planted to quality rootstock. Rosehill endures as an articulate and engaging expression of the Hunter Valley style. A beautifully structured Shiraz, showing excellent fruit to oak balance, fine tannins and a persistent, savoury finish, a timeless confirmation that O'Shea got his site selection pretty right.
Rosehill Shiraz can boast a succession of memorable vintages which have claimed multiple trophiess and gold. Grapes are picked off mature vines on the thirty hectare Rosehill Vineyard at one of Pokolbin's highest elevations, berries are gently destemmed without crushing, musts are held for two days cold soak prior to inoculation. Vinification begins at cooler temperatures in headed down fermenters, pumped over twice daily, skins are eventually submerged and temperatures allowed to gradually warm over the course of a fortnight. Upon completion, batches are pressed and transferred to a selection of seasoned and new, French and Hungarian oak barrels for twenty two months maturation.
Dense crimson with brick red hues. Rich in plummy fruit aromas, hints of leather and spice. Elegantly perfumed sweet lifted ripe raspberry notes over spicy dark chocolate oak, complimented by earthyness and nut. A savoury palate dominated by red berry fruit and mocha oak flavours. The tongue is enlivened by sweet cherries and black fruits which lead into complex, integrated plum and cedar characters.
