Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot.. It's irrewarra by farr»
Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale. The land remains in family hands, a graze for flocks of some highly fortunate.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

Torbreck The Gask Eden Valley Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia
A pure, single vineyard wine, from fruit picked off a single plot of Shiraz, planted 1960 and still managed by the same family. The rocky surrounds of Greg and Cynthia Knight’s highly elevated block of vine were so very reminiscent to winemaker David Powell of stone burial grounds on the hills above Torbreck forest. Nestled into the eastern slope of Mt. McKenzie, this cherished site yields a harvest of parched, intensely flavoured berries, brimming with extraordinary character, lined with the most graceful tannins, endowed with remarkable balance, elegance and poise.

Grapes are all carefully hand picked and passed over the sorting table, bunches are destemmed into two, traditional open cement vats for an extended cold soak maceration and inoculation to wild indigenous or ambient yeasts. Upon completion of ferments, vats are drained and components are treated to a basket press, racked into a selection of seasoned French oak barriques for a course of malolactic and eighteen months maturation, to be bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Dark black red, inky hues. A stirring nose of graphite smoke, crushed rocks and blackberry liqueur. Velvet palate of perfumed cherry, plum and dark currant flavours, persistent and refined. Heroic in style, while retaining the cooler edge and tighter structure for which the greatest growths and finest wines of Eden Valley are famed.
