    Legendary Penfold winemaker John Duval began his apprenticeship in 1974 under the tutelage of the late great Max Schubert. Duval's family had been supplying Penfolds with fruit and root stock for generations, many of South Australia's most prestigious vineyards were sown with cuttings from Duval's family property. Duval was awarded International Wine & Spirit Competition Winemaker of Year and twice London International Red Winemaker of Year. He now focuses on releasing painfully limited editions, assembled from precious parcels of elite Barossa vine, hand crafted by one of the world's most accomplished and peer respected winemakers...

    There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial..

    Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
    David O'Leary and Nick Walker combine a wealth of experience, acquired during their time as corporate winemakers behind such labels as Hardy and Krondorf, Yellowglen and Annies Lane. The Adelaide Hills are the most exciting place in Australia for Sauvignon Blanc. O'Leary Walker have long been amongst the region's most outspoken protagonists, sharing a love of winemaking and affinity for the undulating slopes and salubrious climes of Adelaide Hills. One of the reasons for its growing popularity is the pure fruit driven palate, clean flavours and fine length.
    The O'Leary property at Oakbank in Adelaide Hills, on a gently sloping hill which faces northeast on some rather high altitudes, was planted to vines in 1990. The altitude, soils and weather, as influenced by Mt Lofty Ranges, dictate a long and even ripening, maximising varietal character and intensity of flavour. Each section of the vineyard is kept separate throughout hand harvesting. Fruit is destemmed and given a gentle crush to burst the berries. The finest quality free run juices remain unfiltered to preserve character. Partial lees are added back to juices for vinification, racked off lees after several days and seeded with natural yeast. The wine is chilled after a fortnight and filtered prior to bottling.
    Pale straw with green hues. A bouquet expressing exceptional purity of fruit, lifted tropicals and underlying black currant aromas, passionfruits and jasmine. The palate is fruit driven and long, highly expressive of Adelaide Hills, offering ample lychee and passionfruit flavours, a mouthwatering acidity and exquisite balance. A light minerality and the tang of lime at the finish, within a refreshingly fruit derived style that drinks beautifully on release.
