Hoddles Creek was planned and developed from day one, with a view to crafting an artful range of superlative Yarra Valley wines. The most arduous aspects were planted, because they offered the best promise of outstanding quality fruit. Chilly mornings, vivid afternoon sun and extended ripening, profound vintages of intensely ripened berries. From four superior rows of Pinot Noir on the Hoddles Creek property at Gembrook. Rows 22 to 26 always yield something spectacular with each new vintage, the mix of Burgundian and new world clones are hand picked and separately vinified for release as an exquisite limited edition, only made in the finest vintage years...

Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage. Bellvale remains artisanally small batch, just 23 hectares of vine yields a measured harvest of spectacular quality Chardonnay and Pinot.. Placing pinot amongst the pastures»

A pure Eden Valley Riesling, collated from vineyards planted to higher altitudes, where the chilly nights and mild sunny days are ideal for producing delicately complex Riesling wines with juicy citrus acidity. The rocky outcrops and generally shallow soils make grape growing a challenge, it demands diligence to achieve Riesling wines of stature. The St Hallett philosophy is tried and true, take minimum intervention but give maximum attention. Each vineyard is separately vinified for a month, ferments are kept cool to retain the delicate Riesling fruit characters. Upon completion, batches are fined and individual parcels are assessed, the best components are identified and assembled into the finished wine.
Light luminescent straw hue. A pretty nose with hints of rose petal and citrus blossom, the fresh lime notes expected of fine Eden Valley Riesling. A palate of remarkable elegance and harmony, aromatic citrus flavours are carried on a silky textural mouthfeel, lined with fruit sherbet flavours. The soft lime acidity is very approachable, even as a young wine, a Riesling of persistence and superb length.
