Jane Mitchell is one of Clare Valley's leading wine industry identities, Clare Valley Legend and Clare Valley Winemakers Hall of Fame, Centenary Federation of Australia Medal, SA Tourism Commission, Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board. Mitchell's largest vineyard is at Watervale, a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. It is known by the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz only ever yields minimal harvests, source of the most memorable vintages in our nation's.. These old clare valley vines are just getting better»
Giovanni Tait mastered the family tradition of coopering wine barrels before migrating to Australia in 1957. He took up work in the Barossa and ultimately settled in for a lengthy engagement at B Seppelts and Sons, where he played a significant role in the vinification and maturation of some of the most memorable vintages in Australian viticulture. Tait's boys grew up to be winemakers, their attention to detail and close relationship with the Barossa's finest growers have earned the highest accolades from the international wine industry press. Generously proportioned yet exquisitely balanced, famously praised, perennially by savant Robert Parker as the most consistently outstanding quality, exceptional value wines from Barossa Valley...

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.
