Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless.. The fruit of vines established 1836»
Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot.. It's irrewarra by farr»
One of our nation's enduring winemaking dynasties, the Hamiltons planted vines just outside Adelaide in 1837. Great grandson Sydney Hamilton was a legendary and innovative viticulturalist, he ultimately made his own oenological conversion to the sacred Terra Rosa soils of Coonawarra in 1974, establishing one of Australia's most distinguished vineyards on a highly auspicious site, naming the property after forebear Lord Leconfield.

Reillys Old Bushvine Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Clare Valley South Australia
Gratefully Grenache driven, delicately open fermented and gently basket pressed, vinified exclusively from fruit grown to vines planted in 1919 by a returned serviceman, who'd been granted the property as part of an ANZAC resettlement scheme. Being bushvines, they grow low to the ground and are untrellissed. Grapes are all hand picked, as modern harvesters cannot collect the fruit, ensuring inclusion of nothing but the highest quality berries.

In 1856, an Irish cobbler named Hugh Reilly arrived in the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro. Over the next ten years, Hugh converted the stone barn that had been his home into a cottage. Reilly's Cottage served as the local Cobbler's Shop at the centre of the bustling town, which had boomed with the discovery of slate in the area. Almost 140 years later, the cottage has been restored to its former glory, the home to Reilly Wines. The Grenache vines are ninety years of age, dry grown and cropped at 1.5T/acre. Parcels are inoculated to yeast strain AWRI 796 and treated to an open fermentation for ten days, followed by up to two years maturation in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads.
Deep dark red/ purple colour. Aromas of spicey blueberry and nutella, chocolateyness and violet, hints of ribena and mint. The palate is remarkably satisfying, with never a dissenter to this lovely wine, it pleases all comers. Serve with beef pot pie, olive and wild mushrooms.
