Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

He also has a good eye for the land, selecting a choice site in Adelaide Hills which yields superior harvests of Cabernet Sauvignon. Such was the quality of fruit grown to the single precious vineyard at Lobethal, that Mike Press received overwhelming critical acclaim and several conspicuous wine show triumphs for his first ever vintage.

Mike Press personally planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines on his Adelaide Hills property in 1998, they are all closely managed by the Press family and friends, before being harvested carefully by hand at vintage time. The fruit of his coddled homestead vineyard made history in 2006 when it made the final cut of Australia's most prestigious accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, as an unlabelled cleanskin wine. Parcels of Reynella and CW44 clones Cabernet Sauvignon are treated to a traditional vinification before being filled to a selection of French oak hogsheads for an extended term of maturation.
Bright scarlet purple colour. The nose combines blackcurrant fruit over subtle oak, complexed by varietal Cabernet capsicum and coffee bean notes. Ripe blackberry fruit palate, currant and red cherry flavours, the savouryness of olive and tobacco. Supported by dark chocolate oak and solid, juicy tannins, before a well structured, lingering finish.
