Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot.

Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache.

Primo Estate Joseph Sparkling Red CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz Adelaide Hills South Australia
Every two years Primo Estate release the Joseph Sparkling Red. An Australian icon with dark, brooding opulence and layered complexity nurtured over many years, the modern history of Australian red wine in a bottle. The ultimate Christmas indulgence, a unique blend of museum vintages from the last forty years, treated to Methode traditionelle, rested on sediments, aged and liqueured with ultra fine ports. A powerful, yet graceful and lively sparkling red which, endowed with complexity, to take on intense flavours and festive occasions.
Joe Grilli and David Tait set about crafting this unique Cuvee with Adelaide Hills Shiraz as the predominant base wine, introducing a part of Moda Cabernet Merlot from every vintage since 1991, a hogshead from each year since 1989 also goes in. A sizeable component of the blend consists of a random mixture of very old vintage stocks Australian reds of various wineries and dates, acquired at auction. This imparts a real antique slant to the finished wine. After traditional fermentation in the bottle and resting on sedimentery yeast lees for a year, Joseph is mindfully liqueured to ensure a drier style and to obtain a perfect balance, with a mixture of old Australian ports from the last century.
Deeply coloured, a superfine bead. Currant and blackberry bouquets, clove and some rancio, menthol and earth. This is wine of proportion and folklore, a seamless palate, showing some nicely aged characters, oak just discernible, with a drier than average finish. It is creamy fresh, a serious wine, it can also just as easily be served for a lighter entree or as a very special aperitif.
