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. Mr Melick has come full circle, this time exchanging his wager in good wine, to win the highly coveted Royal Melbourne James Halliday Trophy for the finest Pinot Noir in Australia...

Pertaringa Understudy Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia
The brilliant maritime climes of McLaren Vale yield a richly styled Cabernet wine of penetrating fruit characters and firm but assuaging tannins. The people behind Pertaringa are amongst the most eminent Australian wine industry identities, viticulture on the Pertaringa vineyards however, remains a very hands on affair. Vines are closely managed for trim harvests of small but intensely flavoured Cabernet grapes, a concentration of berry characters in the juices and a measure of solid yet refined tannins within the skins.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$263.00
Dark garnet colour. Dense aromas of blackberry and sweet black plum, violets and cassis are complemented by hints of dried herbs and lavender. Exquisitely balanced palate brimming with cassis and dark bramble flavours, dark currants and green varietal herbaceous notes, supported by broad, grippy licorice tannins. A match to slow roasted, rosemary lamb.
