    Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

    Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»

    Fowles Stone Dwellers Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

    Cabernet Sauvignon Strathbogie Victoria
    A cool climate Cabernet wine of impeccable integration and exceptional balance. Sourced from the Trevor's Cabernet Block on Fowles Plunkett Whitegate Vineyard in Strathbogie Ranges, where harvesting generally occurs from late February through to early May. The sandy loam soils on the elevated and undulating, gently inclined site stimulate the vines into yielding the most intensely flavoured Cabernet berries with pungent aromatics and toothsome tannins. A very well balanced, full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with a long flavourful finish.
    Available by the dozen

    Following harvest and the crush, fruit is inoculated through the action of Saccharomyces cerevisiae AWRI 796, a relatively neutral yeast originally isolated in South Africa, it allows the richness of Cabernet Sauvignon to express itself. AWRI 796 produces above average amounts of glycerol, which contributes a sweetness and roundness to the mouthfeel. Parcels were treated to vinification in high tech sweep-arm fermenters to maximise colour and flavour intensity. Ferments were kept at a temperature controlled 25˚C to preserve primary fruit flavours. Stone Dwellers is matured in small one year old, mostly French oak barrels with a smaller percentage of American oaks.
    Dense, plum red color. The vibrant, varietal bouquet offers chocolate aromas with oak and spice. The palate shows dark fruits and chocolate, supported by a solid structure that finishes long and lingering. Stone Dweller carries no residual sugar, whilst delivering a good balance of alcohol, meaty tannins and refreshing acid. To accompany oxtail pie with roast chestnut and red wine jus.
