    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..

In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale. The land remains in family hands, a graze for flocks of some highly fortunate lamb. In between the paddocks, blocks of Sam.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

    Sevenhill retain some of the Clare Valley's most distinguished sites, the viticultural team are devoted to the nurture of the precious vines. There are several open top fermenting vats at Sevenhill, made from large slate slabs around a century ago, mined from the nearby town of Mintaro, they are irreplaceable. The size of these old world vats is perfect for Shiraz, a large surface area of wine in contact with the fermenting skins gives the best extraction of colour and flavour, while permitting the heat of ferments to escape. Each batch is plunged by hand and manually basket pressed, followed by maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels. Alcohol 15.2%

Full bodied, the finish resolves on a length of firm, soft tannins, seasoned by delicate fragrant, spicy notes.
