A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine.

Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot.

Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by their exceptional value, purity of parentage and wondrous regional..

Geoff Johnston is a winemaker with a world perspective. He is a graduate of the Charles Sturt University and studied in France where his strong interest in the classic Bordeaux varieties flourished. The comerstone philosophy is to produce wines from grapes grown to family vineyards, thus ensuring that the highest possible quality standards are met, and that the wines showcase the unique regional characteristics of McLaren Vale. A combination of high cordon trellis, hand pruning and idyllic growing conditions have produced grapes with bountiful flavours, ripe tannins and good acid balance. An extended maturation of twenty four months in American oaks has softened the wine and enhanced complexity.
Bright scarlet colour with darker robes. Bouquet of violet, spiced blackberry and cedary oak. The palate delivers briars and blackcurrants, red cherries complemented by toasty oak, all integrated with hints of pepper and blueberry, balanced by subtle toasted oak. A rich, firmly structured wine with tannin, fruit and oak in complete harmony.
