    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»
    Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

    Vines at Section A8 of Dixons Creek are strategically planted in a north to south row orientation. All grapes are hand picked throughout the cool of morning into 8kg buckets and transported to the estate wineworks. Fruit is hand sorted as a combination of whole bunches and whole berries are gravity tipped into open fermenters. Fruit is vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeasts, while treated to a regimen of foot plunging and hand remontage to gently extract colour and flavour. After three weeks of maceration and ferment, musts are pressed and settled before gravity filling to a combination of 500L oak puncheons and larger format 2300L casks for malolactic and a year's maturation.
    Medium garnet red colour. Fragrant and aromatic, brightly detailed, perfumed characters, wild strawberries and graphite, minerals and cherry spice. A fine, plump and structured palate, brimming with dark berry flavours, smokeyness and pepper spice, supported by a whisper of seasoned oak and textural, grainy tannins. The Syrah of choice to accompany piquant fennel pork sausages with lentils and maghrebi spice.
