Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s. Yielding excruciatingly small harvests of the most characterful fruit, these wizzened old veterans deliver small batch vintages which are evocative of the old world classics from Cotes du Rhone. The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine Australian Grenache...

Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association. He remains a lifelong member of the Penola Pipe Band. For those who like their wines structured yet satin, powerful yet prettily perfumed, in the mouthfillingly muscular Coonawarra way, the Balnaves brand endures in the tradition of world..

It was a matrimony between an American biochemist and the founder of Margaret River Devils Lair, that set the scene for one of the nation's most illustrious estates. A member of the Top 1OO Wineries of World, Giant Steps were established 1997, with a view to assembling an elite range of limited release Yarra Valley vintages. Crafted from the fruit of superior sites, some yielding just a few hundred cases each year, these are exclusive editions from bespoke parcels of elite terroir, bearing the curiously cryptic monikers of precious blocks of vine, Gruyere Farm, Applejack and Wombat Creek. Fashioned for aficianados of the euro style, defined by their winsome fruit and graceful tannins, the Giant Steps single vineyard range are all distinct for their expression..

Amongst the Pol Roger assets are many miles of subterranean chalk caves and two hundred acres of vineyards. Roger also retain some of Epernay's finest growers to meet the international demand. Roger's caves include a sub cellar which maintains a constant 9.5°C. This variance of a single degree lower to the upper stratum of caves slows the second fermentation, encouraging a finer mousse. Complex aromas that typify this style of wine result from a painstaking process of storage and agitation in a unique cellaring tradition. Cuvee Vintage Brut is allowed to slowly and quietly mature, treated to an extended rest within it's own bottle, upon it's own sediment, before degorgement et doseage.
Golden hues, expansive mousse. Brioche and butter notes, autolysis and yeast, baguette and fresh roast nuts. Textural mouthfeel leaps onto the tongue, an immense palate, primarily of white cherries and apple, reined in by brilliant acids in perfect balance. Engagingly flavourful and highly elegant, savour Pol Roger as the refined effervescence and ebulient sparkle indulges all five senses.
