David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden.

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.

After founding Mornington's eminent Moorooduc Estate and decades crafting the most memorable vintages for Mornington's leading brands, Richard McIntyre established a tiny, single hectare vineyard, on a prominent, high elevation site at Arthur's Seat, with a view to producing limited yields of the most exquisite small batch wines. The techniques of choice are wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention and good French oak, with a nod to traditional Burgundian practices, which allow the wines to speak of provenance, express their specificity of clone and articulate their sense of place.

Grapes are sourced predominantly from three choice vineyards at Koonunga, Tanunda and Lyndoch, as well as contributions from other fine sites, dotted throughout the premier viticultural precincts of Barossa Valley. The Lehmann team take aim at constructing a full flavoured, seamless wine that's consistent with the enduring Barossa style of Shiraz, robustly flavoured yet gentle on the palate, generous yet finely balanced. Parcels of fruit are crushed into fermenters and treated to a term of cold soak for optimal extraction, the musts are vinified on skins over the course of a fortnight, followed by transfer to a selection of fine French oak hogsheads for a year's maturation.
Crimson with dark garnet hues. An articulate nose of lively black cherries, brambles and chocolatey French oak, garnished by twists of the pepper mill. A deeply layered palate, showing flavours of currants and plum, liquorice and mellow, dark chocolate oak. Drinking beautifully and will continue to evolve handsomely, the perfect accompaniment to meats or braises, recipes calling on chorizo or Grana padano.
