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 Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage. Aficianados of small batch, limited release endeavours by Australian winemaking luminaries, are quietly advised to.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

Cape Barren Old Vine Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
From fruit grown exclusively to the prestigious Blewitt Springs Vineyard, previously the source of Shiraz grapes for several icon wines. Located at an altitude of 300 feet, Blewitt Springs is a small site enjoying cooler climes and longer ripening period than the nearby mesoclimes of Willunga and McLaren Vale. These exceptional, low yielding vines at The Springs are eighty to a hundred twenty years of age and at best yield a precious two tonnes per acre. The unique terroir of the site translates into an elegant single vineyard Shiraz with a profound depth of flavour.

The precious old vineyard at Blewitt Springs is protected on all sides from strong winds by native forest and mature tree windbreaks. The vines were planted some eighty to eighty five years ago and produce very small yields of the most intensely flavoured Shiraz. Fruit is vinified for several days in upright static fermenters at around 25C to 27C. Batches are pumped over twice daily, run off skins and pressed at near dryness. A third is transferred to new French oak hogsheads for completion. The balance is filled to oak after fermenting to dry. Components are matured up to eighteen months in a combination new and seasoned French and American oak barriques and hogsheads.
Richly coloured, dense with purple hues. Intense lift of dark chocolate and plum characters with hints of five spice excite the senses. Blackberry intensity immediately fills the palate, mixing seamlessly with dark chocolate and mocha. Powerful soft tannins are harmoniously in balance, achieving the holy grail of power and finesse. A long, persistent finish is supported by a subtle oak accent and soft, supple tannins.
