By those wonderful folks who bring us Shaw & Smith. Tolpuddle was planted to vine in 1988, on a highly precious site along Back Tea Tree Road, just outside of Hobart.

At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty..

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..

Reilly's source fruit from older sites around the prime viticultural precinct of Leasingham, for the construct of oustanding wines of great character and charm. Dry Lands is vinified from parcels of choice Cabernet grapes grown to the elite and unirrigated Leasingham Smyth Block. The superlative vines are forty five years of age, closely cropped to yield a scant 2.0T/acre, whereupon the grapes are hand picked to the most optimal levels of natural fruit sugars. Parcels are crushed and vinified in traditional open vats, prolonging the contact of juices on skins for maximum extraction. Ferments are then basket pressed and treated to an extravagant two years maturation in a selection of the finest French oak hogsheads.
Deep red colour. Savoury and earthy upfront followed by darker fruit and a dusting of spice, distinct regional mint and eucalyptus with hints of blackcurrant and chocolate. The primary fragrances evolve into currant and lots of biscuity oak. A rich, full bodied Cabernet with layers of intense dark berry fruits, well integrated oak, fine tannins and lingering mint chocolate finish. Serve alongside beef filled with oysters and spinach.
