Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from complete annihilation. One of the smallest yielding blocks in the land, Moorooroo endures as one of the world's most illustrious vineyards... The fruit of vines established 1836»
By those wonderful folks who bring us Shaw & Smith. Tolpuddle was planted to vine in 1988, on a highly precious site along Back Tea Tree Road, just outside of Hobart. The inaugural vintage claimed Tasmanian Vineyard of Year in 2006.

Nautilus Marlborough Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Marlborough New Zealand
One of New Zealand's most consistent Chardonnay, a label that will not disappoint, Nautilus has received great recognition at international competitions. Whole bunches are treated to an indigenous fermentation in a mix of seasoned and new French oak barriques, followed by a course of lees battonage for richness. A highly demanding viticultural focus, combined with the best of old and new world winemaking techniques, translates into a wine of balance and poise, as mesmerisingly aesthetic as the spiral on a nautilus shell.

Parcels of clone 15 Chardonnay from the Renwick block and Korohi Vineyard on Pauls Road, are vinified alongside harvests of Dijon clone 95, grown by Jim and Debbie Greer on their Rapaura Road property. These sites are stony and free draining, giving naturally low yields and fantastic depth of flavour. All blocks are hand picked to a schedule determined by full ripeness without excessive sugars, whole bunch pressed and wild yeast fermented in French oak barriques. A regimen of lees stirring post ferment adds textural richness.
Pale straw in colour. A lifted aroma of tropical fruit and melon supported by toasty oak. On the palate are grapefruit/ citrus flavours integrated with nutty/ biscuit characters derived from indigenous fermentation and lees stirring. Nautilus has a tight mineral structure in its youth and develops a creamy texture as it matures.
