Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»
Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by.. The bushranger's brew»

Tyrrells Lunatiq Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
Tyrrell made a major contribution to the development of Heathcote as a world class winegrowing region. One of the earliest pioneers, they sowed the seeds and established the vines which launched the second gold rush into Heathcote Shiraz. Lunatiq is minimally handled to encourage the eloquence of terroir to speak, dark chocolate tannins support a mouthfilling palate of red currant flavours and piquant spice, followed by a lingering, well balanced finish, a titillatingly enigmatic fragrant mineral lift.

Sourced from a block of superb vines planted to the highly prized, deep red Cambrian soils on the eastern slope of Mount Carmel range, thirty kilometres north of Heathcote township. The oldest blocks are picked and transported back to Hunter Valley for vinification. Three days of cold soak are followed by a fortnight of open ferments at 25°C, gently pumped over to maximize flavour and colour without over extraction of tannin. Batches are filled to a selection of high quality, tight grain French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and a year's maturation, the best barrels are assembled into the finished wine.
Bright red/ purple in colour. A great lift of mulberry, plum fruit and brooding, spicy chocolate oak. The palate is rich and robust, dark plum and currant fruit flavours are framed and enhanced by layers of soft fruit tannin, a tight mineral texture whilst maintaining the finesse and elegance which defines Heathcote Shiraz.
