Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's resplendent range of wines are complimented by sweet oak and gripping tannins, culminating in vintages of extraordinary flavour and exquisite.. Precious & prodigal parcels of the barossa»
The story of Langmeil begins with early Barossa settlement, planted to Shiraz by Christian Auricht in the 1840s, the estate vineyards were restored by the Lindner and Bitter families during the 1990s. Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore. Saved from the ravages of time by the hand of providence and generations of dedicated Barossa growers... The legacy landscapes of langmeil»

Veuve Clicquot Champagne1.5L MAGNUM CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier French Champagnes, Reims France
Veuve Clicquot can be judged on the quality of its Brut non vintage. It is in the making of such a wine that the true Art of Champagne reveals itself. This is an art in which the House of Veuve Clicquot excels. Yellow Label reflects the superb vineyards and the consistent nature of the House style. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that declares itself as Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the palate. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse, essential to such a perfectly balanced wine.

Grapes from as many as sixty different Crus go to the crafting of Brut Yellow Label. Traditionally, the components are at least fifty percent Pinot Noir, up to twenty percent Pinot Meunier, and up to a third of Chardonnay, varying slightly from year to year according to conditions. The Cellar Master has to achieve the total consistency of taste, which makes Brut Yellow Label so immediately recognisable, so utterly reliable both in terms of quality, colour and bouquet. He will draw on priceless reserve wines for the blend, sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the continuity of the House style. Each of these older wines, averaging ninety years, are kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage.
Golden yellow, a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. So pleasing to the nose, reminiscent of white fruits and raisin, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle. The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo, each fruit or spice note distinct.
