Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by.. The bushranger's brew»

Three British Army officers, in their capacity as agents of the East India Company, established one of Western Australia's first agricultural enterprises in 1836.

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»

Vasse Felix Cane Cut Semillon 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Vasse Felix produce the most exquisite Margaret River Semillon, wines of extraordinary freshness, lifted fruit intensity, elegance and finesse. Vasse Felix make a cane cut dessert style Semillon by slashing the shoots at the base, essentially detaching fruit from the vine. Bunches are then allowed to hang for several weeks, during which time the berries desiccate, concentrating the sugar, flavours and acid. The result is an attractive quince and tropical fruit flavoured wine offering amazing depth of flavour and vitality, seasoned by just a hint of spicy French oak.

Cane Cut Semillon is all about timing and precision, exercising care in the vineyard to create fruit which can ultimately translate into a wine of purity and elegance. Being an early ripening grape, Semillon finds the growing conditions in Margaret River idyllic. Vines will usually compensate for cooler conditions by reducing yield so that every chance is given to obtain optimum ripeness. Given the amount of shrivel in a cane cut grape, yields are precious and extraction rates are very low for this style of wine. Following harvest and the crush, juices are inoculated to select yeasts before vinification in a combination of fermenters, folowed by a judicious term of lees stirring in a mix of French oak barriques. Alcohol 11.0%
Medium straw hues. Intensely fragrant with barley sugar and spice, lovely citrus marmalade notes, gingernut and meringue are seasoned by toasty French oak notes of vanilla and spice. Preserved lemon, tangerine and grapefruit flavours burst onto the palate, a fresh tangy acidity perfectly balancing the rich luscious sweetness. A lovely viscous, silky, creamed honey mouthfeel provides medium bodied richness and texture, finely focused mineral acidity and long luscious finish.
