Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache. Beautifully detailed and conspicuously elegant, their floral bouquets and graceful finish emulate the aromatic..

Lured to Australia by Alfred Deakin in 1887, the Chaffey Brothers were American irrigation engineers who took up a challenge to develop the dust bowls ofRenmark and Mildura into fruit growing wonderlands. They left our nation an extraordinary legacy and their progeny continue to make good wine. Several generations later, the Chaffey Bros are focused on the fruit of some grand old Barossa and Eden Valley sites. Chosen harvests of extraordinary grapes are the ticket for admission into the exclusive club of Chaffey vineyards. Shiraz is made in several different styles and there's a penchant for obscure white varietals in the Mosel River way. They make wine.. A splendour of salient sites»
Old Richmond Gaol was one of Diemen Land's first prisons, built by the convicts themselves, of good old fashioned granite blocks, laboriously hauled in wooden hand carts and quarried from the ominously monikered Butchers Hill. Today, Butchers Hill is the site of the steepest sloping vineyard in Coal River Valley, invigorated by afternoon sea breezes and prevailing winds from the roaring forties, its highly auspicious, self mulching black Vertosols, yield extraordinary wines. Established by founding members of the Hobart Beefsteak & Burgundy Club, Butchers Hill represents three generations of passion amongst the nether vineyards of the Apple Isle. Not just a..

Peter Lehmann rightly espouses Barossa Semillon as a unique style, the estate is justly rewarded with a resource of the choicest vineyards. Lehmann has always had enormous faith in Barossa Semillon but it has been sorely challenged over the past thirty years. The commitment stands and some very old Semillon vines have been preserved. Released as a five year old, Margaret is a fruit driven, deliciously dry white which reflects Lehmann's passion. Grapes are picked early and vinified at lower temperatures for a fortnight, clarified and bottled immediately upon completion, unwooded and unoaked, followed by an extended cellaring.
Vibrant gold, tinges of green. Lively bouquet of lemon zest, lanolin and beeswax, lemongrass aromas and citrus acidity belie its age. Youthful and fresh, paradoxically shows remarkable complexity after five years in bottle, a zesty, tight mineral acidity, an effusive layered palate, pleasingly dry before an elongated, zesty finish. A superb accompaniment to scallops, fresh fishes and white meat roasts.
