Tim and Simon and all the Wicks, nurse the rootstock and foster the clones which are in highest demand by the Adelaide Hills most accomplished vignerons. The Wicks are Adelaide Hills born and bred, they called upon an old mate named Tim Knappstein to assist in the establishment of a vineyard and wineworks, set amongst the ancient eucalypts on the scenic slopes of Woodside. Each and every planting was determined according to a viticultural algorithm, based on clonal selections and terroir, aspect, soils and clime. The shrubs reached maturity and the wines that flowed are claiming a conspicuous tally of triumphs at significant national wine shows. Representing salient value for the exquisite quality of vintages, Wicks are an essential choice for adherents of the graceful and stately styles which hail from Adelaide..

Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot. Victoria's Gippsland is a place of paradise for vintages in the Burgundy style, a oenological wonderland of restrained releases from vivid little vineyards. Enthusiasts en route to a discovery of max value within an archive of limited editions, are quietly counselled to savour a sampling of the lubricious Lucinda... A glimpse of the gippsland grail»

O'Leary Walker is the culmination of two like minded identities who were fated by destiny to make wine together. After working with large companies for many years, the Messrs David O'Leary and Nick Walker amassed over three hundred gold medals and sixty trophies, including the highly coveted Jimmy Watson. Shiraz is treated to a small batch vinification through the action of natural yeasts, hand plunged in a mix of two and four tonnes fermenters for twelve days. Batches remain on skins for a fortnight to enhance tannin complexity, maximising flavour and length, pressed and racked into a combination of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extended term of maturation.
Deep red with purple hues. Virulent and complex on the nose, savoury elements of ground pepper and olive combine with sweeter characters of dark blackberrry, red liquorice and spice. The oak is all French, subtle and integrated, gently enhancing the layers of fruit. A palate that's concentrated and powerful, persistent and long, juicy tannins and balanced acidity.
