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.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

Woodlands is produced exclusively from Mendoza, the clone that made Margaret River famous for Chardonnay. A luxurious regimen of lees stirring and new oak fermentation adds mouth filling textures and rich complexity.

Chardonnay vines were planted in 1985 to light gravelly loam soils atop Woodland's south facing slope. The Gingin/ Mendoza clone was first choice, famous for it's hen and chicken bunchset, delivering low yields with higher levels of acidity and great intensity of flavour. Grapes are hand picked at ripe and healthy baumes, each batch is separately destemmed through an advanced vibrating hopper and pressed into French oak for a luxurious course of barrel ferments, enhancing intensity of fruit while achieving a more complex flavour profile. Upon completion, most batches are racked, a third of the wine remains in barrel. Come September, components are racked and assembled for filtration and bottling.
Intense straw hue. Layers of stonefruit and lime, nectarines and pear, mineral notes and struck flint over subtle French oak. The palate is balanced and refined, showing great poise and finesse, stonefruits and citrus, mineral and flint over delightful French oak, finishing with a vibrant crisp texture from the bright natural acidity. A rich, full bodied wine with excelent retention of natural freshness.
