Hoddles Creek was planned and developed from day one, with a view to crafting an artful range of superlative Yarra Valley wines. The most arduous aspects were planted, because they offered the best promise of outstanding quality fruit. Chilly mornings, vivid afternoon sun and extended ripening, profound vintages of intensely ripened berries. From four superior rows of Pinot Noir on the Hoddles Creek property at Gembrook. Rows 22 to 26 always yield something spectacular with each new vintage, the mix of Burgundian and new world clones are hand picked and separately vinified for release as an exquisite limited edition, only made in the finest vintage years...

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

The very first blocks of vine planted at Scotchmans Hill, are now in their fourth decade. Set aside for bottling as a range of limited release, single vineyard wines, they represent the first growth of viticulture from the fertile crescent of Port Phillip's western shore. Crafted to traditional old world techniques, very similar to the great Crus of la Bourgogne, they afford the true enthusiast an opportunity to engage with the decadent delights of the greater Geelong, as sampled alongside Gruyere, game and the finest gourmandise...

Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's..

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.
