Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s.

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»
Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»

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.
