Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir. Mr Melick has come full circle, this time exchanging his wager in good wine, to win the highly coveted Royal Melbourne James Halliday Trophy for the finest Pinot Noir in Australia...

All Vega Sicilia's vines are dry grown and hand pruned, yielding less than two kilos each. Grapes are never picked unless they have achieved high levels of sugar concentration. Vinification usually lasts fifteen days and temperatures may reach as high as 32C. The optimum ripeness of fruit captured during harvest and high alcohol content facilitates the extraction of colour and tannins. Most of the ferments are carried out in oak vats and followed by the completion of malolactic. The finished wine is transferred directly into oak where it remains for a year, settling and clearing. Unicco Cosecha is matured up to ten years in a combination of seasoned and new, estate coopered oak casks and large capacity wooden vats.
Intense cherry red colour. Complex and elegant nose, fine oak characters. Exceptional balance on the palate, solidly structured yet elegant and refined, retaining all the liveliness of youth. Complex, flavourful and persistent.
