Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their pesetas and avail themselves of a case or two Walkerville Pinot Noir, a mere few hundred..

Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir. Mr Melick has come full circle, this time exchanging his wager in good wine, to win the highly coveted Royal Melbourne James Halliday Trophy for the finest Pinot Noir in Australia...

Shiraz primarily from elevated well drained vineyard sites around the cooler southern and central sections of the Barossa. The Grenache from low vielding west and north western areas of Gomersal and Greenock where the vines truly struggle to survive, producing intensely flavoured low yielding crops. St Hallett have carried out extensive trial work to find yeast strains that suit this wine. The aim is to highlight the fresh berry, floral, spicy, earthy aromas contributed by the Grenache and Touriga, while the richness and pepper spice of the Shiraz builds palate weight and structure. Contact with yeast lees post ferment, gives the wine an appealing texture and earthiness, completely fruit driven.
Vibrant cherry red colour. Highly floral bouquets. A pot pourri of lively cherry and raspberry with a spicy rose petal-like infusion from the Touriga Nacional makes this a kaleidoscopic sensory experience. Old world European subtle savoury earthiness meets the new world vibrant fresh array of raspberry cherry fruits. Finishing with soft yet sanguine tannins, a very food friendly wine.
