Major Sir Thomas Mitchell left more than just an invaluable bequeth of our nation's most detailed frontier maps. Mitchell distinguished himself in Wellington's army during the Napoleonic wars in the renowned 95th Baker Rifles. A gifted draftsman, he found his way to the nascent colonies of Australia, where his acumen at mapmaking won him the office of Surveyor General. During one of Mitchell's historical expeditions, he charted the fertile lands around Victoria's Goulburn Valley, establishing the colonial fruitgrowing township of Mitchell's Town. The district's auspicious orchards flourished until Colin Preece identified the region as an opportune place to grow world class wine. Vineyards thusly planted around the Goulburn billabongs, came to be known as Mitchelton. Now a half century of age, the vines remain one of Victoria's venerable sources of superbly structured, deeply flavoursome wines... Barriques between the billabongs»

Tempranillo Merlot Malbec Ribera Del Duero Spain
The history of Bodegas Vega Sicilia began in 1848, when Toribio Lecanda bought a 2,000 hectare property from the Marquis of Valbuena. In 1864, Eloy Lecanda established the wineworks which epitomise the romance of Tempranillo. Vega Sicilia continue to deliver concentrated and elegant wines.
Vega Sicilia is unquestionably a unique wine, one of the great Spanish classics. It's personality is derived from the quality of fruit and uncompromising attention to detail. At Vega Sicilia, the oak cask is an essential part of the vinification, forging a true consortium with the wine. In the same way that the grape is an achievement of the vineyard itself, it is essential for Vega Sicilia that most of the casks are coopered at the winery. A cepage of varying proportions, according to vintage, Tempranillo and Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Vega Sicilia Valbuena is treated to maturation in a selection of new and seasoned, French and American oak casks and larger format oak vats for up to three years.
Deep, garnet cherry colour. Brilliant nose, alive with bright violet scents and mature red fruit characters. Oak is present without being dominant. A complex, fleshy palate exhibiting exceptional structure. Integrated, layered red cherry and olive, savoury, dusty herbs and generous blackberry fruit flavours, inseparable from the aromatic oak and supportive, textured, velvet tannins. To accompany game sausages, braised mutton and open flame grilled meats.
