Thomas Yule now sources fruit from the eminent Justin Vineyard in Frankland River, a dark ruby Shiraz of lifted liquorice and intense brambleberry, seasoned by piquant pepper notes and supported by showroom tannins.

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 profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Templar Vineyard occupies two gently sloping terraces above Awatere River, each picked to optimal flavour ripeness and processed separately to provide a number of blending options. All parcels spend time on skin contact to enhance the intensity, followed by a gentle press, cold settling and racking. Cool fermentations are employed to retain purity of flavour and aromatics. Upon completion, batches remain on yeast lees for several months to build richness and mouthfeel. Components are racked and assembled, gently fined, filtered and immediately bottled, preserving the purity of flavour, freshness and superb palate richness.
Vibrant, light straw colour. A beautifully intense and lively wine, overflowing with aromas of ripe gooseberry, melon and passionfruit with hints of grapefruit, nettles and lime. A pure expression of Marlborough, mouthfilling and juicy with vibrant fruit, fantastic mid palate richness and weight of fruit, finishing rich and racy with a crisp line of acidity and excellent length. A match to salmon, green beans and potato salad.
