Established 1973, Woodlands of Wilyabrup were one of the first vineyards in Margaret River, planted with a view to emulating the great growths of Bordeaux. Recipients of the highly prestigious Jack Mann Memorial Medal and Wine Industry Lifetime Achievement Award for their tremendous vintages of all things Cabernet. Assembling the rich Medoc style blends are what Woodlands do best. Painstakingly crafted by hand, to challenge the primacy of the illustrious Chateaux de la rive gauche, very few vineyards yield the quality of fruit that merits vintaging into a statuesque wine dominated by the prettily fragrant Cabernet Franc. Woodlands were established from the ground up with a view to achieving limited harvests of the abstruse Bordeaux varietals, only a few hundred cases of good red wine per vintage. Two precious vineyards, located within the elite terroirs of Margaret River's Wilyabrup Valley, are dry grown and farmed through holistic regimens of old world..

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

The Pike & Joyce vineyards are amongst the highest in Adelaide Hills at five hundred metres above sea level, giving the wines excellent natural acidity. The steep sloping terrain reduces the risk of frost. Vines are all hand pruned and handpicked, the fruit is chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms, before being transported to Pike's Clare Valley winery for vinification. Traditional old world techniques and modern Australian winemaking are incorporated to produce a style which reflects the variety and region. The fruit is lightly crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation. A brisk bottling upon completion captures and preserves the lovely Pinot Gris fruit character and Adelaide Hills charm.
Medium to pale green hue. Subtle notes of yellow peach and nectarine, nashi pear and nutmeg along with a little of the river stone minerality for of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris. Medium bodied palate showing the flavours of stone fruits over a gentle creaminess which contributes texture and length. Well balanced acidity maneuvers the wine away from finishing heavy or cloying.
