The First Colonists to arrive in South Australia were brought to Kangaroo Island aboard HMS Buffalo in 1836. Sharing the journey was a veteran of the Royal Navy who had served aboard Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory. Frank Potts was an accomplished sailor and carpenter, he built many of the young colony's structures and trading vessels. Six generations later, the Potts family's precious plantings of Malbec have been a key component in many of the nation's most memorable and invaluable vintages for decades. A varietal that performs magnificently on the silty flood plains of Langhorne Creek, Bleasdale's pure Malbec bottlings are a profound statement about the excellence and eloquence which can be achieved after generations of husbanding one of the world's most instrumental yet abstruse wine..

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 batch, limited release endeavours by Australian winemaking luminaries, are quietly advised to.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

The Tim Adams wineworks are located right at the heart of Valley Clare, along Warenda Road, not far from the Main North Road, about midway between the townships of Sevenhill and Clare. Harvests of Semillon grapes are selected off choice blocks on the Sheoak, Rogers and Fairfield Vineyards. Parcels are crushed and the juices left in contact with skins for twelve hours to maximize fruit flavour extraction. All pressings are retained and vinified for inclusion into the finished wine. Batches are vinified in a combination of fermenters and French oak barrels, components remain in oak for several months before being assembled and cold stabilized into the final wine.
A light, bright yellow hue. Citrus, mineral and vegetable bouquet with hints of dried florals, asparagus and pear. This aromatic wine has great balance and generous flavours so expressive of Clare Valley. French oak fermentation has added complexity to the grassy and stonefruit characters of the Semillon.
