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, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat.

There are fewer than twenty hectares of Stefano Lubiana vines, overlooking the spectacular tidal estuary of Derwent River. Chosen for its felicitious winegrowing aspects, it is a place of scrupulously clean soils, free of any pesticides or manufactured treatments. Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture. Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon. His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity. A peerless expression of vintage, an orphic approach to the winemaker's art, a humbling.. Celestial wines from southern climes»

Heartland Directors Cut Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
The top cut of Shiraz, from vines up to thirty years of age, grown to sandy loam soils, planted to splendid sites at Langhorne Creek, including the eminent Teangi and Pasquin vineyards. A black jube and lozenge style of Shiraz, beautifully of articulated dark fruits, cherries and cassis, supported by lithe hints of spice box and anise. Seductively rich on the palate, as flavours of dark chocolates and plum unwind along the impressive length of supple, focused tannin. Uncannily European in style, a palate of old world savouryness and wonderful, textural mouthfeel.

Fruit is harvested at night and crushed into small open top fermenters. After a day's skin contact, the musts are inoculated to a Rhône isolate yeast, chosen for its ability to ferment efficiently at cooler temperatures. Following several days of vinification on skins, hand plunged thrice daily, batches are transferred to a selection of completely new French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic. Director's Cut is topped up and treated to a weekly battonage over six months. Barrels are racked and refilled for a further term of maturation.
