Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock.

Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes..

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Alfred and Katrina Pizzini's vision was to establish a winery which can deliver fine Italian varietal wines within the context of King Valley. Sangiovese is one of the more tannic, firmly structured Italian red varietals. It has indeed found familiar surrounds and a happy new home in the elevated aspects of Victoria's King Valley. Since planting their first Sangiovese vines, Pizzini have introduced seven new clones to seven vineyards, which translates into better wines. Identifying unique sites which are favourable to Sangiovese and determining the specific clones to match the terroir are critical. Vines are trained to encourage the fruit to reach full physiological ripeness and flavour maturity with a balance of tannins.
Dark garnet red hue. Vibrant and fresh nose with lifted plums and spice, cherry and ripe red berries before herbal and savoury characters over delicate background oak. A smoky streak with bracken, woody spices and fresh, earthy complexity. The palate offers lovely chalky tannins that line the mouth with fresh, vibrant acidity. Persistent flavours of plum, spiced cherries and earthy tones continue to the lingering, clean and balanced finish.
