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. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir. Mr Melick has come full circle, this time exchanging his wager in good wine, to win the highly coveted Royal Melbourne James Halliday Trophy for the finest Pinot Noir in Australia...

He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages. Undercover is a moniker that Geoff has assigned to a collation of exceptional parcels, albeit bottled behind an abstruse label to secrete the provenance of a spectacular Shiraz.

Sons Of Eden Sons of Eden Eurus Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
The temperate climes of Valley Eden are cooled by easterly gully winds, which ensure a long slow ripening and complete development of varietal characters in the grapes. A harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon from the warmer northern parts of the Valley, planted to auspicious red soils over limestone, is vinified alongside fruit from a cooler Eden Valley site, coalescing into a cornucopia of brambleberry and dulcetly perfumed blue fruit flavours. Only ever made in the most outstanding vintage years, barely more than a hundred dozen of Eurus were produced.
Available in cartons of six
Case of 6
$221.50
A collation of harvests from two superior Cabernet vineyards in Eden Valley, low cropped sites in the Moculta and Keyneton districts, yielding two tonnes or less per hectare. A variety of vinification techniques are employed, according to the individual character of each parcel, extended skin contact time and daily plunging to gently extract good colour, rich flavours and refined tannin. The active components are pressed to a selection of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads for completion of ferments, malolactic and twenty months maturation, naturally clarified, lightly fined and bottled with minimal filtration. Alcohol 14.5%
Deep crimson colour. Complex array of blackberry and cassis, varietal leaf, violets and plum notes. On the palate pronounced blackberry characters are complemented by red currant, dried herb and anise characters, a powerful Cabernet wine of excellent definition and great length, finely structured and supported by silky, persistent tannins.
