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..

Three British Army officers, in their capacity as agents of the East India Company, established one of Western Australia's first agricultural enterprises in 1836. Named after Captain Richmond Houghton, it was not until Thomas Yule's stewardship that vines were planted and the first vintage of Houghton wine flowed in 1859. Thomas Yule now sources fruit from the eminent Justin Vineyard in Frankland River, a dark ruby Shiraz of lifted liquorice and intense brambleberry, seasoned by piquant pepper notes and supported by showroom tannins.

Parker Estate was built from the ground up in the right way, with the intention of producing precisely this style of wine. Established in 1985 by an old industry salt, quality winemaking was the only priority and commercial constraints played no part in the development. Integral to the style and structure of First Growth is the seven day warm fermentation and four to six weeks of maceration on skins. Individual parcels are then matured eighteen months in a selection of mostly new, Seguin Moreau Chateau and Taransaud Chateau, 228 litres French oak barriques. The final assemblage is returned to oak before egg fining and bottling.
Mid to deep red purple hue. Highly complex nose, showing dark berry fruit and forest floor characters, tobacco and spice notes within a lifted smoky French oak frame. Intense palate with rich ripe black fruit, liquorice notes and firm structured savoury tannins. Medium bodied but with very intense fruit and good perfume, a magnificently proportioned Cabernet Merlot accord.
