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 bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage. Aficianados of small batch, limited release endeavours by Australian winemaking luminaries, are quietly advised to.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants. Charlie emabarked on a crusade to conserve and restore the ancient vines, establishing his cellars at Tanunda along Krondorf Road. He has since retained the most precious parcels, once destined for the logger's axe, they are now the genesis of fruit for the distinguished Barossa brand known as Charles..

The auspicious soils on Doctors block are fortuitiously littered with just the right amount of surface stones, reflecting the sun's warmth and hinting at just how tough the vines need to be to sustain growth and yield a high quality harvest of fruit. A combination of super rich soils and favourable climes make the holy grail for Riesling. Grapes are picked throughout the cool of night, de stemmed and crushed, a day of cold soak is followed a gentle press for finest free run juices. Batches are vinified by wild vineyard yeast flora on full solids over the course of a fortnight. Six months of lees stirring battonage builds complexity and texture.
Pale straw, green tinge hues. A stunning wine exuding wonderful florals, delicate lime and citrus notes, hints of lemon and fennel, bosc pear. A very fine palate with great length of acid, purity of lime fruits and crisp, lemon with hints of musk and fennel, balanced finish. The perfect accompaniment to freshly shucked oysters, Atlantic salmon or king george whiting.
