By those wonderful folks who bring us Shaw & Smith. Tolpuddle was planted to vine in 1988, on a highly precious site along Back Tea Tree Road, just outside of Hobart. The inaugural vintage claimed Tasmanian Vineyard of Year in 2006. The illustrious Messrs Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith acquired the property in 2011, with a view to elevating the excruciatingly limited release Tolpuddle to the status of a national Grand Cru. A singular experience in new world Pinot Noir, Tolpuddle unravels endless layers of pastoral complexity, powerfully structured yet elegant, immaculate and poised...

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

Vega Sicilia is unquestionably a unique wine, one of the great Spanish classics. It's personality is derived from the quality of fruit, rigour at elevage and uncompromising attention to detail throughout vinification. The ageing of Unico Cosecha begins in the January following vintage, initially in large capacity wooden vats for up to two years before a regimen of racking into a progression of new and seasoned, estate coopered oak casks. Over a course of seven to ten years, the wine is transferred from younger to older oak, with a view to achieving harmony and integration. After several years of racking and transfer, Unico Cosecha is finally rested in larger wooden vats and prepared for bottling.
Cherry with ruby robes. A complexity of aromas, fine oak, compote and balsam, rosemary and menthol. Palate entry is subtle and discreet, followed by an opulence of fruit characters. Notes of tobacco and menthol, blackberries and prune integrate with the extravagant oak, supported by dusty, leafy tannins, for a wine of remarkable aromatic complexity and immeasurable palate persistence.
