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.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

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.

Peter Schell knows from Barossa Rose, having spent vintages in Provence and several years at the illustrious Barossa Rose specialists, Turkey Flat. Schell finds the esoteric Cinsault to be an underrated grape, peerless as a blending component. It's lumpy, fat appearance on the vine means that it is often overlooked, yet it exudes delightful aromatics of potpourri, herbs and spice. Each individual parcel is separately handled and fermented, until the decision is made as to what and how much is included into the final wine. Parcels are separately vinified to traditional Rose making techniques, before assembling components into a classically provencal styled pink wine, elegant and ethereal, complex, fine and dry.
Light apricot pink colour. A complex and refined Mediterranean style with subtle, discreet aromatics. Musk, raspberry, pink rose petals, just ripened strawberries, quince and a hint of spice with slight savoury undertone. The palate is bone dry with flavours ranging through cherry and red currants, savouriness and a refreshing dryness from the acidity, displaying light, fine tannins.
