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 bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Block 8 is at the northeast corner of Resurrection Vineyard on higher elevations of shallow rocky soils, planted to the Maywald clone Shiraz, a direct descendent of the oldest rootstock in Barossa. Hand picked grapes are treated to a cool temperature, open ferment for ten days, followed by completion of malolactic and ten months age in a selection of well seasoned French oak hogsheads and barriques. Block 8 yields a supple wine of comely eloquence, intricacy and elegance, a fresher, more delicate style of florals and fragrant herb, milk chocolate oak, ripe sugar plums and sweet vanilla pod spice.
