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...

Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels. The tradition began 1901 when Bill Redman, at the tender age of fourteen, made the journey to take up an apprenticeship at the John Riddoch wineworks and to labour amongst Coonawarra's founding vineyards. Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra. Husbanded by the 4th generation, parcels from the 1966 vines are assembled into the estate flagship The Redman... The velvet virtue of old coonawarra vines»

The team at St Johns Road aim to identify small parcels of exceptional Barossa Shiraz, worthy of the Blood & Courage moniker. Batches are vinified and aged separately right up to the final assembly, such that each component can be treated individually. Parcels of Shiraz from low yielding Kalleske and Schutz family vineyards in Ebenezer and Stonewell, are crushed into a ten tonne open top fermenter for several days of cool temperature vinification. Pumpover regimes and cap work is decided by taste, for optimal extraction of colour and flavours from the skins. Upon completion of malolactic, batches are pressed and filled to a selection of French oak hogsheads for a year's maturation.
Vibrant, dark opaque ink, purple hues. Strong blackcurrant, dark plum and spicy mulberry fruit, a subtle overlay of dry roasted almonds, cocoa and oak. Full bodied, like Aussie rules, intense flavours of dark berry and plum mixed with Barossa earthiness. Red liquorice and dark chocolate, fresh and lively, rich in texture with subtle oak that shows soft, well integrated tannins. A convincing finish, packed with flavour that lingers long after the last sip!
