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 way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage. Aficianados of small..

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.
