Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s. Yielding excruciatingly small harvests of the most characterful fruit, these wizzened old veterans deliver small batch vintages which are evocative of the old world classics from Cotes du Rhone. The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine.. The compelling case for old vines grenache»
Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists.

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial..

The elevated northern districts of Barossa Valley make a perfumed and delicate style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Vines planted to drier, cooler climes than the Barossa valley floor, offer much lower yields, translating into rich and powerful Cabernet wines of great intensity and structure. Peter Lehmann retain access to some of the oldest and very best Cabernet sites in the region. The choicest parcels are selected on the basis of juicy berry fruit flavours and fragrant minty violet characters. Fruit is crushed into fermenters for a term of cold soak followed by a week of vinification. Upon completion, batches are pressed, clarified and filled to a selection of French and American oak hogsheads for a year's maturation.
Deeply coloured garnet red. Initial black cherry notes precede a redolent bouquet of currants and mint, violets and cassis. A richly endowed, solidly structured palate, offering great length of flavour, blackberries and cocoa, inky fruits and Barossa chocolate fruit characters, before a soft, fined grained tannin finish. Drinking beautifully, a superb accompaniment to beef, wild game or ripe, pungent cheese.
