One of our nation's enduring winemaking dynasties, the Hamiltons planted vines just outside Adelaide in 1837. Great grandson Sydney Hamilton was a legendary and innovative viticulturalist, he ultimately made his own oenological conversion to the sacred Terra Rosa soils of Coonawarra in 1974, establishing one of Australia's most distinguished vineyards on a highly auspicious site, naming the property after forebear Lord Leconfield. An exceptional value for Cabernet of its class, presaged by a vigorously perfumed berry punnet nose, syrup textured, stately and refined, Leconfield makes a compelling..

Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists.

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»
Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the..

Yalumba Christobels Semillon Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Savagnin Barossa South Australia
Christobel Hill Smith was an integral part of the personality around the Yalumba household and wineworks for over sixty years, her vitality and charm bewitched all those around her. Her eponymous wine is equally charismatic, two thirds Semillon and a third of Sauvignon Blanc, fashioned into a well structured Barossa white supported by exquisite mineral slateyness. The aromaticnes and pungency of Sauvignon Blanc adorn the beautiful fresh flavours and lithe natural acidity.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$203.00
Harvests of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from loyal Barossa growers, some have been supplying Yalumba for generations. Great care is taken to pick the grapes early to ensure maximum freshness and delicacy. Christobel's Semillon is always picked early to retain freshness and capture the classic varietal lemon sorbet flavour. Grapes are gently pressed to extract clean free run juices, minimally handled to protect fresh fruit characters. Parcels are inoculated to neutral yeasts and vinified at cooler temperatures to maximise the varietal expression and retain essential Sauvignon Blanc aromatic complexity. The finished components are left on light lees until assemblage.
Bright green hue. Aromas of lemon verbena, orange blossom and lantana, each variety of grape contributing its own charm. Semillon defines the palate, giving it light body with citrus blossom flavours, Sauvignon Blanc gives the palate zest and crunch. A wonderfully fruit driven wine for current drinking alongside fresh seafood, salads and Asian style faire.
