The very first blocks of vine planted at Scotchmans Hill, are now in their fourth decade. Set aside for bottling as a range of limited release, single vineyard wines, they represent the first growth of viticulture from the fertile crescent of Port Phillip's western shore. Crafted to traditional old world techniques, very similar to the great Crus of la Bourgogne, they afford the true enthusiast an opportunity to engage with the decadent delights of the greater Geelong, as sampled alongside Gruyere, game and the finest gourmandise...

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..

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

Scotchmans Hill Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Bellarine Victoria
One of Victoria's stellar performers puts their stamp on Australian Shiraz. The windswept maritime aspects of Bellarine Peninsula punish vines into extracting the maximum amount of cool climate spice while developing the ripest, luscious berry flavours. The Scotchman displays an engaging intensity of Shiraz fruit characters, pliant tannins and crisp acidity in support of liquorice and plum notes, along with vibrant Bellarine expressions of freshly milled spice, minerality and brine.
Available in cartons of six
Case of 6

The Bellarine Peninsula's role in the development of the Australian wine industry began in 1842, when vines were planted in the surrounding Barrabool Hills. Grown and managed mainly by Swiss immigrants, these vineyards yielded wines which were sold through regular auctions in the city of Geelong. Established in 1982, Scotchmans Hill has become a producer of some of Australia's most complex, elegant and consistent wines. Shiraz vines, clone PT23 are trained to vertical shoot positioning. Fruit is fermented in small open top pots, hand plunged and left on skins for three weeks, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of new to four year old French Troncais oak barriques.
Deep vibrant purple. A complex and rich nose of dark fruit, plums and black cherry, complemented by spice, earth and clove, over a charry oak background. Fully flavoured cool climate, sweet and savoury palate, dark fruits make way to red plum and cherry, spices and briar are supported by firm acid and fine grained tannins. Scotchmans finishes balanced, structured and long, a Shiraz of intensity and charm.
