There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage. Aficianados of small batch, limited release endeavours by Australian winemaking luminaries, are quietly advised to indulge their appetence and secure a case of Robin Brockett Pinot Noir, Syrah..

Wantirna Estate Amelia Cabernet Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot Yarra Valley Victoria
Excellent Langtons Classification. Whilst the cepage of fruit to Amelia may be different each year, a backbone of two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon dominates, a third of Merlot and Cabernet Franc ensues, followed by a soup├žon Petit Verdot. Favouring the slow ripening of a long growing season, Petit Verdot grapes are always last to be harvested, usually in mid April. It is the the quietly spoken measure of of Petit Verdot which contributes structure, fine firm tannins and good natural acidity, fully approachable while young, she will age beautifully for more than fifteen years.
