He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland..

He now focuses on releasing painfully limited editions, assembled from precious parcels of elite Barossa vine, hand crafted by one of the world's most accomplished and peer respected winemakers...

Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the..

Reilly's source fruit from older sites around the prime viticultural precinct of Leasingham, for the construct of oustanding wines of great character and charm. Dry Lands is vinified from parcels of choice Cabernet grapes grown to the elite and unirrigated Leasingham Smyth Block. The superlative vines are forty five years of age, closely cropped to yield a scant 2.0T/acre, whereupon the grapes are hand picked to the most optimal levels of natural fruit sugars. Parcels are crushed and vinified in traditional open vats, prolonging the contact of juices on skins for maximum extraction. Ferments are then basket pressed and treated to an extravagant two years maturation in a selection of the finest French oak hogsheads.
Deep red colour. Savoury and earthy upfront followed by darker fruit and a dusting of spice, distinct regional mint and eucalyptus with hints of blackcurrant and chocolate. The primary fragrances evolve into currant and lots of biscuity oak. A rich, full bodied Cabernet with layers of intense dark berry fruits, well integrated oak, fine tannins and lingering mint chocolate finish. Serve alongside beef filled with oysters and spinach.
