There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore. Saved from the ravages of time by the hand of providence and generations of dedicated Barossa growers... The legacy landscapes of langmeil»

Following the harvest, grapes are inoculated and vinified in twenty tonnes rotary fermenters, which periodically mix the fruit and keep skins wet, maintaining temperatures at 20C to 25C. A natural culture is employed, selected for its capacity to preserve attractive berry aromas while keeping wild yeasts in check. Regular tasting twice daily throughout a week of vinification is followed by a term of maceration on skins for optimal extraction. Batches are pressed, assembled and racked to a selection of pre loved oak barrels for a brief but judicious course of maturation, aimed at integrating all components and taming the tannins, while retaining fresh Coonawarra fruit character.
Deep purple, magenta hues. Dark cherries and plum notes, blackberry and fruit compotes, liquorice, vanilla and cedar box oak. The fruits carry on to the palate, vibrant, generous and round, supported by soft tannins, following through with a subtle spiciness on the finish. Yearling has been fashioned to enjoy today around the dinner table alongside a crackling roast lamb.
