Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists. Served by savvy sommeliers and savoured by the most discerning patrons, the limited releases of Golden Ball are an essential experience for aspirants of grand Victorian growths...

Grenache Cariñena Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Priorato Spain Spain
A complex assembly of Grenache and Carineña grown to the Denominacio d'origen Priorato, espoused by an equally stirring addition of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Priorat is a long forgotten winegrowing area, highly salubrious in its time, it was ravaged by phyloxera and abandoned in the nineteenth century. The rocky, steeply sloped, mineralite soils have been rediscovered by Don Lewis and Narelle King, who take time out from their operations in Victoria once a year to vinify the parched and precious fruit of Merum Priorati.

Older bush vine Grenache and Cariñena as well as younger trellised Syrah and Cabernet, added for complexity, balance and structure. The older vines are all dry grown while the younger vines have access to irrigation which until recently was banned in Spain. Each individual vineyard and in some cases, each variety within the vineyard, were vinified and matured in separate parcels before being carefully selected for the final assemblage. Hand plunged four to five times a day in 1.5t open fermenters, then pressed out using a wooden basket press and left to settle overnight before transferring to barrel. Treated to twelve months maturation in a combination of new and prior use French oak.
Bright cherry red, pink hues. Rich sweet bouquet of plums, mulberry and slatiness, seasoned by hints of aniseed and wild thyme. Sweet raspberry fruit up front on the palate, licorice chocolates, the wine flows beautifully along, offering fine tannins, good acid and excellent flavour balance, great structure and mesmerising length.
