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.

Beginning with the Bouzy vineyards that originally belonged to founder Philippe Clicquot, subsequent generations, particularly Madame Clicquot, gradually built up the Veuve Clicquot holdings to create one of the most impressive estates in all Champagne. There are some five hundred hectares, half belong to Veuve Clicquot and over a hundred are owned by the LVMH group. The vineyards boast an exceptional average classification of close to 97. Vines are mostly planted to hillsides where soils are shallowest and exposure to the sun is at a maximum. Significantly, Veuve Clicquot adds only a light liqueur doseage during the wine's disgorgement, allowing full expression of the essential Veuve Clicquot style.
Pale gold, silver hues, brilliance, effervescence, a fine and long lasting bead. The nose opens readily, the aromatics are pure yet complex. Chardonnay contributes refined mineral character accompanied by pleasant floral notes of acacia, yellow fleshed fruit, marzipan and brioche. Silky and generous, a wealth of flavours, a deliciously long and powerful finish. Elegant, remarkably well balanced, the perfect accompaniement to refined cuisine.
