One of our nation's enduring winemaking dynasties, the Hamiltons planted vines just outside Adelaide in 1837. Great grandson Sydney Hamilton was a legendary and innovative viticulturalist, he ultimately made his own oenological conversion to the sacred Terra Rosa soils of Coonawarra in 1974, establishing one of Australia's most distinguished vineyards on a highly auspicious site, naming the property after forebear Lord Leconfield. An exceptional value for Cabernet of its class, presaged by a vigorously perfumed berry punnet nose, syrup textured, stately and refined, Leconfield makes a compelling..

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

Toolangi is a former cattle grazing property, re established to vines in 1995. Further plantings have been progressively added and there are now some thirteen hectares under vine. A well drained location with gentle slopes, all exhibiting a highly desirable northeasterly orientation, the site is ideally suited to the cultivation of high quality fruit. Soils are predominantly clay, covered by a thin layer of shale and stone topsoils. Chardonnay grapes are selectively hand picked off low cropped vines yielding 2½ tonnes per acre. Following a wild, indigenous yeast vinification at the Yering Station and Oakridge wineworks, Toolangi is matured for up to a year in a selection of seasoned and new French oak puncheons.
Light in colour. Lemony edges with a nose of slate and wet stones, clotted cream, peach and lemon citrus. A reduction in the oak regime allows the fruit to shine and the subtle talc texture and baking spices to evolve on the finish. Beautiful lightness, and pleasing texture, it is fresh, precise and lively and a terrific addition to any menu. Match it with WA scampi, chicken caesar or whiting caprice.
