Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists. Served by savvy sommeliers and savoured by the most discerning patrons, the limited releases of Golden Ball are an essential experience for aspirants of grand Victorian growths...

Pol Roger's most prestigious Cuvee, only ever made in the finest vintages, a cepage of Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from vineyards which were under vine during Churchill's time. The relationship between Churchill and Roger dates back to a luncheon some months after the liberation of Paris, at which was served the sumptuous 1928 vintage. In attendence were Sir Winston and the beautiful Odette Pol-Roger. They struck up an instant rapport and the friendship between their families endures to this day.

The flagship Cuvee from one of the most venerable brands in the world, treated to two debourbages, one immediately after pressing and the second à froid after twenty four hours vinification at a chilly 7°C. Each individual parcel is separately handled, grape varieties and vineyard blocks are kept apart until assemblage. Upon completion to dry at temperatures not exceeding at 28°C, batches are treated to full malolactic, assembled and filled to bottle for secondary fermentation under the lowest Pol Roger cellars, thirty three metres below street level at a stable 9°C. Cuvée Winston Churchill is treated to old fashioned remuage by hand, a rarity in Champagne nowadays.
Intense golden hues, a spiral of the finest bubbles. Well structured nose, forceful but with subtle mineral notes and hints of lemon, white pepper and ginger. An august, mouthfilling palate, robust and powerful, saltiness and minerality, balance, structure and poise. The finish is astonishingly long, Sir Winston is a masculine Champagne, self assured and unforgettable, a wine full of character and charm to indulge for its complexity, pairing well with foie gras, canapes or a fine fromage comte.
