Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists. Served by savvy sommeliers and savoured by the most discerning patrons, the limited releases of Golden Ball are an essential experience for aspirants of grand Victorian..

The First Colonists to arrive in South Australia were brought to Kangaroo Island aboard HMS Buffalo in 1836. Sharing the journey was a veteran of the Royal Navy who had served aboard Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory. Frank Potts was an accomplished sailor and carpenter, he built many of the young colony's structures and trading vessels. Six generations later, the Potts family's precious plantings of Malbec have been a key component in many of the nation's most memorable and invaluable vintages for decades. A varietal that performs magnificently on the silty flood plains of Langhorne Creek, Bleasdale's pure Malbec bottlings are a profound statement about the excellence and eloquence which can be achieved after generations of husbanding one of the world's most instrumental yet abstruse wine..

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. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are commonly cited as one of the great vineyards of the world,..

Hewitson Miss Harry Dry Grown GSM CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
A profoundly structured, concentrated Rhône style GSM from hand tended vineyards, at the very heart of Barossa which date back to the 1800s. The old, deep rooted Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre vines accept their fate without blinking, perfectly timing their harvest to accompany the later ripening, lower alcohol Carignan and Cinsault, a small yet important part of the Miss Harry accord. These gnarled veterans have seen every poor growing season before and will again, due to their natural affinity for Barossa Valley.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$323.00
Two thirds Grenache, equal portions Shiraz and Mourvedre, the balance in Carignan and Cinsault. Dean Hewitson has been very fortunate to be tutored by some of the best wine makers and wine scientists in the world. Hewitson made the savvy decision to create long term associations with a network of established growers, allowing him the luxury of selecting only the best fruit. Fruit is picked off blocks of hand pruned, unirrigated dryland vines, up to 140 years of age, a third of the harvest is included as whole bunches, cold soaked and vinified on skins for three weeks before completing ferments, malolactic and a year's maturation in a selection of well seasoned French oak barriques. Alcohol 14.0%
Bright red with deep purple hue. Aroma of black, red and forest berries, pepper and spice, garrigue, dried lavender and herbs with layers of creamy complexity offered by the extended barrel maturation on lees. The palate is wonderfully full, showing ripe black berries, strawberry and plums, a concentrated core of fruit essence with a racy acidity that contributes incredible vivacity. The finish is long, continuous and fresh.
