Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune.

Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by.. Satiations from the nethermost regions»
Planted to the tranquil Shangri-La of a sun warmed slope in Yarra Valley, TarraWarra was established 1983 by the founders of the Sussan and Sportsgirl brands. Philanthropists and patrons of the arts, Mr and Mrs Besen, AO and AO respectively, took a highly aesthetic approach to the pursuit of viticulture. Healthy soils and happy fauna were the means to an end, good wine comes from a sound ecology, but great wine needs the inspiration of a holistic engagement with the arts.

The Orvieto Classico denomination is limited exclusively to the limestone cliffs on which the city of Orvieto is situated. The highly favourable terroirs and mesoclimes which distinguish Valley of the Paglia and the lower Tevere, are at the root of the natural endowments which have for centuries, yielded vintages of the freshest and most quenching white wines.

Good spring temperatures and the availability of water encourage the sprouting of grape. Summer rains maintain vegetative equilibrium throughout the hotter months leading to veraison and ripening. Fluctuations in temperatures between day and night allow grapes to ripen fully, achieving a harvest of healthy fruit in excellent condition. Grapes are destemmed and gently pressed, the must is cooled to 10C for a natural clarification, racked to fermenters and vinified at temperatures below 18C . The wine was then kept at a temperature of 10C until the moment of bottling. This procedure allows the preservation of vibrant, complex characters and overall freshness.
Straw yellow colour, hues of lime green. Bouquet opens with luscious fruity, floral aromas reminiscent of lemon zest, pineapple, banana and white flowers. Soft and well balanced on the palate, full bodied and luscious, soft and fresh, with lingering flavours of fresh citrus on the finish.
