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,.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»
Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and.. The goodly farms of brothers in arms»
By those wonderful folks who bring us Shaw & Smith. Tolpuddle was planted to vine in 1988, on a highly precious site along Back Tea Tree Road, just outside of Hobart. The inaugural vintage claimed Tasmanian Vineyard of Year in 2006. The illustrious Messrs Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith acquired the property in 2011, with a view to elevating the excruciatingly limited release Tolpuddle to the status of a national Grand Cru. A singular experience in new world Pinot Noir, Tolpuddle unravels endless layers of pastoral complexity, powerfully structured yet elegant, immaculate and poised...

Pinot Gris Grigio Eden Valley South Australia
Pinot Gris has found the perfect idyll within the cool climes and elevated aspects of Valley Eden. The long slow ripening produces an exceptionally well balanced style of Pinot Gris with heightened acidity and brisk natural fruit characters. An aromatic, textural white wine that's so highly engaging, while serving as a contemporary Australian take on the established French style. H&V's mouthfilling and complex, layered palate makes it a cinch with food and a fine match to all cosmopolitan faire.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$263.00
Parcels of Pinot Gris grown to a splendid site, high up the Eden Valley, atop bony, rocky soils, are picked a little later in the season to make a more textural style of wine. Following harvest, grapes are crushed and the juices drained immediately away to ensure a finished wine of delicacy and softness. A small portion is inoculated in French oak hogsheads to create a Pinot Gris of characteristic barrel ferment richness, the balance is treated to vinification in chilled fermenters to retain the urgency of Eden Valley fruit. After a few weeks on sedimentery yeast lees, components are assembled, stabilized and bottled early to preserve freshness. Alcohol 13.0%
Delicate colour with a green tinge. Bouquet of freshly cut pear, blossoms and pine nut, nashi and quince. The palate is rich and soft, offering lemon zest stonefruit flavours, hazelnut and vegetable, textural with a mineral crunch, before a pleasingly dry finish. Drinking beautifully now, serve lightly chilled alongside pan fried salmon or prawns, roast pork or chicken mushroom pie.
