The Heathcote Wineworks were one of the first commercial wineries in central Victoria. Prominently placed along Heathcote's main boulevard, established by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune. Thomas Craven was a purveyor of spirits and wine, he traded in gold, providing a lifeline to local prospectors. An entrepreneurial type, he also operated a coach service from stables behind the cellar door, despatching supplies and delivering mail around the central Victorian goldfields. The legacy endures within a measured range of small batch Shiraz, crafted to traditional techniques and fashioned for timeless excellence. Enthusiasts of grand old brands with a provenance and history are advised to avail themselves of a case or two Shiraz from Heathcote.. The alluring case for craven's place»
Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington... Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»

Fruit is harvested at healthy levels of complete ripeness, brimming with a fine concentration of esters and ideal acidity. Bunches are picked into small packing cases and delivered to the winery, softly pressed and cold settled at cool temperatures to separate juice form gross solids. The musts are vinified at moderate temperatures around 18°C over the course of a fortnight, followed by several months maturation.
Straw yellow, greenish hues. Intense floral and fruity aromas, almond and white pommes characters over a background of fine mineral crispness. A lengthy, well structured palate of drying fruit flavours, its astringency kept in check by apple and kernel notes, all supported by balanced acidity and culminating in a long, crystalline, savoury finish.
