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.

Harvests of Sauvignon Blanc are collated from good vineyards throughout the finer winegrowing precincts of Marlborough. The fast draining, low fertility soils, warm days and chilly nights form a mesoclime that's unmatched anywhere else in the world for yielding lusciously fruit driven Sauvignon Blanc wines. Grapes are crushed and gently pressed before cold settling. The clear juices are racked off and inoculated to choice yeasts. A long cool vinification in controlled fermenters captures and retains the vibrancy of Marlborough fruit. Batches are treated to a term on lees before assembling into the finished wine, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Light straw hue. Lifted nose of passionfruit and lychee flower, kiwis and kaffir lime. A lifted blackcurrant palate, complexed by notes of wet stone and thyme, elegant yet full with sufficient weight and texture to mate alongside white meat roasts, all balanced by flinty minerality. A splendid match to goat’s cheese flan and the freshest seafood.
