There are fewer than twenty hectares of Stefano Lubiana vines, overlooking the spectacular tidal estuary of Derwent River. Chosen for its felicitious winegrowing aspects, it is a place of scrupulously clean soils, free of any pesticides or manufactured treatments. Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture. Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon. His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity. A peerless expression of vintage, an orphic approach to the winemaker's art, a humbling eloquence of our southernmost.. Celestial wines from southern climes»

Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir.

Mountadam High Eden Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Eden Valley South Australia
From the best parcels of fruit grown to the High Eden Ridge Estate vineyard, these are the earliest plantings of Chardonnay in South Austraia and some of the oldest in the country. The east facing escarpment rises 550 metres above sea level and separates the dramatically cooler Eden Valley, providing a myriad of interesting mesoclimates and vineyards which have been refined over time, along with the winemaking. The vines are painstakingly pruned by hand and yields are methodically thinned to ensure grapes develop the requisite intensity of flavour.

Mountadam vineyards were re-established as part of a deeply personal project by one of Australia's most entrepreneurial winemaking dynasties. The cool climes of High Eden Ridge, the large clonal variation and the very different aspects of the Mountadam blocks necessitate careful attention to the ripening of fruit. Fruit is harvested throughout the chill of night and gently pressed, juice are fermented in an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques and treated to the occasional lees stirring battonage, completion of malolactic, racked and returned, followed by a year's maturation and final racking before assemblage.
Light golden hue. Classic Chardonnay fruit aromas of peach, nectarine and nashi pear. A rich barrel ferment palate of grilled nuts with clove and nutmeg spice supported by a citrus grapefruit core, all contributing to the immense flavour and length. Match with fried whiting fillets, camembert or recipes which call for white truffle.
