Josef Chromy OAM escaped from war torn Czechoslovakia as a penniless 19 year old in 1950, he fled across minefields, evading soldiers and killer dogs, ultimately finding a new home in the lucky country.

Chromy's sensational vintages are as conspicuous for the uniqueness of their character as they are for their.. Tasty treats from the apple isle»
An ongoing resurrection of some fabulous old vines, a distinguished Blewitt Springs site and a range of the most spectacular McLaren Vale wines. When Kelly and Bondar acquired Rayner Vineyard in 2013, they knew that everything depended on the management of site and soil to achieve the excellence of wine they had in mind. The most fastidious husbanding regimens and a tightly scheduled evolution towards organic viticulture, the propitious Rayner vines have never yielded finer harvests, all translating into a tour de force across the entire Bondar range. Salient quality and penurious pricing make for a compelling mix. Old vines grown to salubrious soils, the.. Model mclaren macerations»

At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty..

Tyrrells HVD Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Hunter Valley New South Wales
Hunter Valley Distillery is a continuation of the same dry creek bed as the Short Flat Vineyard that produces Vat 1 Semillon. HVD is a proven Semillon vineyard, which consistently yields parcels of fruit that reach the very high standards that are demanded for inclusion in the exalted Vat 1. In 1995, the winemakers decided to keep the HVD Semillon by itself as a separate reserve wine and it went on to become one of the most talked about releases of the last decade. HVD Semillon is rapidly gaining a solid repute as one of Australia's great white wines.

Vines planted in 1908 form the Sign Post Block, completely dry grown and all on original root stock. The property lies between two small creeks that are fed from a spring in the Brokenback range. Soils are light sandy loam going down into coarse river sand. The vines are rarely stressed and their roots are almost continuously in water. Fruit is crushed but not de-stemmed and placed through a Miller airbag press. Juices are centrifuged after pressing and fermented following inoculation by an old strain of Tyrrell's yeast over the course of a fortnight. HVD is winemaking in its purest form, parcels are treated to a short time on gross lees prior to racking, assembling and preparation for bottling. Alcohol 11.0%
Bright straw colour. Floral fruit in youth, an immediate impact of big, soft baked notes on the nose and palate which moves towards deeper biscuit characters with age. The palate is mellow with softer acids than most other Tyrrell Hunter Valley Semillon. A fine match to gourmandise white meats and poultry, truffle recipes or fine cheese.
