Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»
Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of.. Phyloxera, ancient cellars & seriously old vines»

Sevenhill Inigo Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
Sevenhill are a quiet achiever, softly spoken artificers of Clare Valley's finest. Riesling develops so much charm as it grows in the vineyard, that if it's picked at the right time, the wine is virtually made. Riesling's desire to wear her heart on her sleeve still means that she can be sensitive, so the vinification must be compassionate. Amongst the propitious terroirs of Sevenhill, vines yield fruit of refined minerality and savoury edge, the richer, red soils are higher in nutrients, all the team have to do is protect and maintain the character of fruit.

Riesling is planted on four separate vineyard blocks, each with different soils, a combination of silty stone/slate and richer, red loam. The silty stone and slate soils are older and less fertile, they offer ideal chemistry for wine grapes. The vines produce leaner characters, the wines show minerality and a more savoury edge. The richer, red soils are higher in nutrients, so the vines don't have to battle quite so hard. All grapes are gently pressed, taking great care not to allow oxygen to steal the flavour. Juices are kept very cool, inoculated by choice yeasts and fermented to dryness at temperatures around 12C. Individual vineyard blocks are all kept separate until completion and the final assemblage.
Pale straw colour with a tinge of green. Highly aromatic, waxy orange blossom predominant, nose displays the character and charm of pure, elegant Riesling. The palate is tight and lean, showing prominent citrus flavours followed by a minerally, dry finish, long and crisp.
