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. There's not much Bellingham made but every bottle passes through the hands of a team member who has been involved with the vintage since pruning and budburst. An essential inclusion for small batch Pinotphiles in the know, there has never been a more limited release of a marvelous Mornington marque... Limited editions by the master of moorooduc»

Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia
The Torzi Matthews team work to a formula that low yields translate into big, flavoursome wines. They selected a property in one of the most inhospitable parts of Eden Valley, where unending toil and frigid climes realize meagre amounts of parched berries each vintage. From grapes grown to the chilly surrounds of Mount McKenzie, incorporating the undried parcels of fruit earmarked for the estate flagship Frost Dodger, Mathews and Torzi craft an intense yet acessible construct of Eden Valley Shiraz to match bold Mediterrannean cuisine.

The Mt McKenzie site is subject to traditional biological farming, a diet of composts with native grasses and flora as ground cover, low water input and natural sprays to keep disease under control. Vines eighteen years of age are grown to clay loam over a shaley schist rock bed, trained to single wire trellis. A very minimalistic handling includes a component of whole bunch, open top vinification and wild yeast ferments, soft pumpovers, hand plunging and an old fashioned basket press. Components complete their ferments and eighteen months maturation in prior use Frost Dodger barrels and seasoned French Cadus et Radoux oak barriques, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
Bright scarlet colour. Bursting with deep aromatics, perfumed, floral notes, dark fruits and sweet spice. Vibrant palate of mulberry, rasberries and cherry, espresso and chocolate, festive spice and all things nice, finishing long and complete on a length of fine grained tannins. Expect all that the Torzi Mathews style represents, alongside braised goat or piquant buddhist casserole.
