There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit.

After founding Mornington's eminent Moorooduc Estate and decades crafting the most memorable vintages for Mornington's leading brands, Richard McIntyre established a tiny, single hectare vineyard, on a prominent, high elevation site at Arthur's Seat, with a view to producing limited yields of the most exquisite small batch wines. The techniques of choice are wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention and good French oak, with a nod to traditional Burgundian practices, which allow the wines to speak of provenance, express their specificity of clone and articulate their sense of place.

All grapes are picked by hand, separately handled according to variety and gently pressed to individual vats for a natural cold settling. After a day of rest, the Roussanne component is racked to fermenters, Marsanne and Viognier are filled to a selection of seasoned French oak barriques, for a rich barrel vinification in the traditional Rhone Valley way. Each parcel is treated to a slow indigenous fermentation, followed by a term of seven months maturation on fine lees prior to assemblage.

The ripe, fleshy barrel fermented Viognier and Marsanne contribute extraordinary richness to the palate, Roussanne brings flintyness and mineral, savouryness and chiselled, austere personality.
