Hoddles Creek was planned and developed from day one, with a view to crafting an artful range of superlative Yarra Valley wines. The most arduous aspects were planted, because they offered the best promise of outstanding quality fruit. Chilly mornings, vivid afternoon sun and extended ripening, profound vintages of intensely ripened berries. From four superior rows of Pinot Noir on the Hoddles Creek property at Gembrook. Rows 22 to 26 always yield something spectacular with each new vintage, the mix of Burgundian and new world clones are hand picked and separately vinified for release as an exquisite limited edition, only made in the finest vintage years...

The 1890s brought boom years to the nascent Aussie wine industry, as connoisseurs throughout Europe and the Empire were introduced to the Dionysian delights of new world Claret by Tyrrell, St Huberts and Wirra Wirra. An enterprising family of Scots took heed of the times to plant grapevines on a uniquely auspicious block in Valley Clare, they called it St Andrew and produced forty vintages of the most sensational quality Claret until the 1930s. The Taylor family acquired the fallow farm in 1995 and brought St Andrew's vines back to life. The treasured block endures as home to the flagship range of Taylor wines, one of the most distinguished vineyards in all.. *according to the french»
Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s. At Milawa, Mondeuse translates into an inky, deeply tannic wine, it forms synergies with the sweet fruit plumpness of Shiraz and statuesque elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon to coalesce into a rich, opulent style of eloquence and structure...

Yalumba Octavius Old Vine Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa Eden South Australia
Outstanding Langtons Classification. Octavius has established a reputation as one of Australia's Shiraz icons. In addition to being sourced from a number of very old Barossa vineyards, Octavius is treated to an extended period in American oak octaves of ninety litres capacity, the only red wine in the world to be matured in such small barrels. The secret of the wine not becoming overpowered by oak lies in the wood itself, which is open air seasoned at Yalumba's own cooperage for eight years before the octaves are coopered and put to use.

Grapes are all hand picked from heirloom vineyards, bush vines planted between late 19th and early 20th century, the oldest dates back to 1854. Fruit is crushed into eight or six tonnes fermenters, the wild yeasts present on grape skins initiate fermentation. Vinification and cap skin management in open and static potter fermenters is controlled by the Yalumba designed cap plunger. The result is a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity. Matured twenty months in a high proportion of new French, American and Hungarian oak hogsheads, octaves and barriques. Yalumba are one of the few wineries in the world who retain their own coopers practising the ancient craft of barrel making.
Deep bold red purple. Exotic fig and plum sauce, mocha and black liquorice notes on the bouquet. Dense and brooding, showing sweet Shiraz fruit concentration and fine seamless tannins. Long and lush through the finish, exhibiting great integration, elegance and style. Wild ferments and small format oak contribute to the individual complexities of the wine, contributing richness and fine textures.
