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..

Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture.

His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity. A.. Celestial wines from southern climes»
Three British Army officers, in their capacity as agents of the East India Company, established one of Western Australia's first agricultural enterprises in 1836. Named after Captain Richmond Houghton, it was not until Thomas Yule's stewardship that vines were planted and the first vintage of Houghton wine flowed in 1859. Thomas Yule now sources fruit from the eminent Justin Vineyard in Frankland River, a dark ruby Shiraz of lifted liquorice and intense brambleberry, seasoned by piquant pepper notes and supported by showroom tannins.

Sevenhill Cellars are nestled among the vineyards close to St Aloysius Church. Herr Weikert Block's red brown loam soils and cool, sheltered aspect are key elements in achieving the balanced growth and fine Riesling attributes of St Francis Xavier. The winemaking focus is on preservation of pristine fruit characters that develop during ripening of the berries. Grapes are picked during the coolest part of day, gently pressed and fermented at a very low temperature. Great care is taken to settle and bottle the wine quickly, ensuring the vineyard's signature flavours are captured.
Citrus green hues. Concentrated elegant perfume indicates the finesse of the St Aloysius style. In the mouth, the wine combines the fresh zest of citrus flavours with the toasty, nutty character that comes from bottle age. Mouthfuls of citrus fruit combine with enticing minerality, assertively astringent and a touch of lime, talcy yet pleasingly drying.
