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 isle, a no expense spared approach in the elevage and quality of oak, the wines of Clarence House are a treat for enthusiasts on a quest to procure the elusive vintages of an original Van Diemen's Chateau...

Pikes Eastside Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
The unique soils and favourable climes around precious sites on the eastern side of Valley Clare impart distinctive flavours and aromas, forming a wine of power, complexity and poise. Eastside was selected for service in British Airways First Class, reportedly going down quite nicely with beluga caviar and wagyu beef. An excellent example of how good Clare Shiraz can be, a wine of suppleness, intensity and structure, displaying a degree of opulence. There will be no problem enjoying Eastside as a baby, ideally alongside your favourite comfort food.

Henry Pike settled in the small town of Oakbank on the Adelaide Hills, establishing the family brewing business called H. Pike & Co in 1886. Pike's great grandson Edgar was well established in the wine industry as a private vigneron and as a vineyard manager for a large proprietary wine company. His sons, Andrew and Neil, have both followed in their father's footsteps. Eastside is inoculated to natural yeast cultures and treated to a temperature controlled vinification in fermenters, pumped over and membrane pressed, the pressings are added back into ferments. The finished wine is racked into a selection of predominantly 228L French oak barriques for up to eighteen months maturation.
Deep red, almost black in colour. Super ripe blueberry, plum and blackberry aromas with some dark chocolate and spicy notes. These are all complimented nicely by a swirl of charry French oak somewhere in the mix. Very attractive to savour, the palate is soft and powerful with flavours of blueberry, plum and charry oak overlaying a core of dark chocolate running through the mid palate. A little hit of fine, dry tannins on the finish adds length and structure to the plush fruit.
