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.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Vasse Felix Cane Cut Semillon 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Vasse Felix produce the most exquisite Margaret River Semillon, wines of extraordinary freshness, lifted fruit intensity, elegance and finesse. Vasse Felix make a cane cut dessert style Semillon by slashing the shoots at the base, essentially detaching fruit from the vine. Bunches are then allowed to hang for several weeks, during which time the berries desiccate, concentrating the sugar, flavours and acid. The result is an attractive quince and tropical fruit flavoured wine offering amazing depth of flavour and vitality, seasoned by just a hint of spicy French oak.

Cane Cut Semillon is all about timing and precision, exercising care in the vineyard to create fruit which can ultimately translate into a wine of purity and elegance. Being an early ripening grape, Semillon finds the growing conditions in Margaret River idyllic. Vines will usually compensate for cooler conditions by reducing yield so that every chance is given to obtain optimum ripeness. Given the amount of shrivel in a cane cut grape, yields are precious and extraction rates are very low for this style of wine. Following harvest and the crush, juices are inoculated to select yeasts before vinification in a combination of fermenters, folowed by a judicious term of lees stirring in a mix of French oak barriques. Alcohol 11.0%
Medium straw hues. Intensely fragrant with barley sugar and spice, lovely citrus marmalade notes, gingernut and meringue are seasoned by toasty French oak notes of vanilla and spice. Preserved lemon, tangerine and grapefruit flavours burst onto the palate, a fresh tangy acidity perfectly balancing the rich luscious sweetness. A lovely viscous, silky, creamed honey mouthfeel provides medium bodied richness and texture, finely focused mineral acidity and long luscious finish.
