Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon Ribera Del Duero Spain
Spain's most prestigious winemaking estate was founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves. He planted the Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec, as well as the local Tinto Fino or Tempranillo, to the arid Ribera soils just east of Valladolid. The Bodega is now source to Spain's most distinguished wines. Unico is treated to an extended ageing in a selection of estate coopered casks and barriques. The wines of Vega Sicilia are renowned for their complexity, intensity and longevity, amongst the finest in the world.
The Vega Sicilia wineworks are located at Valbuena in the province of Valladolid, on a fertile plain that follows the course of Ribero Duero. The river forms the northern boundary of the thousand hectare property, the southern limit is set by woods, which stand on the slopes leading to the plain. Soils are clay limestone with brown grey streaks and an alluvial area. There are 250 hectares of vineyard, mostly Tempranillo de la Ribera, with further plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Vintage 1995 was a mostly Tempranillo wine with a seventh of Cabernet Sauvignon, matured up to ten years in a combination of seasoned and new, oak casks and large capacity wooden vats.
Intense cherry red colour, brilliant. Complex and elegant nose, the fruit is integrated with subtle, fine oak characters. Exceptional balance on the palate, exhibiting all the elegance of a statuesque Tempranillo wine, muscular, stately and solidly structured yet elegant and refined, retaining all the liveliness of youth. Complex, flavourful and persistent.
