The First Colonists to arrive in South Australia were brought to Kangaroo Island aboard HMS Buffalo in 1836. Sharing the journey was a veteran of the Royal Navy who had served aboard Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory. Frank Potts was an accomplished sailor and carpenter, he built many of the young colony's structures and trading vessels. Six generations later, the Potts family's precious plantings of Malbec have been a key component in many of the nation's most memorable and invaluable vintages for decades. A varietal that performs magnificently on the silty flood plains of Langhorne Creek, Bleasdale's pure Malbec bottlings are a profound statement about the excellence and eloquence which can be..

There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»
Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's resplendent range of wines are complimented by.. Precious & prodigal parcels of the barossa»

Claymore has achieved wide industry acclaim from peers and the wine show circuit. Disparate lots of parched fruit are high maintenance, but Claymore have never compromised in terms of quality. Unirrigated, the vineyard yields only small volumes of no more than two tonnes per acre, but this is more than compensated by the quality of the final wine. The underlying philosophy is to keep things fun, whilst practising an exacting attention to detail. Bittersweet Symphony has spent in excess of eighteen months maturing in a careful selection of new and prior use, predominantly French oak. Time in barrel gives the opportunity for the naturally pronounced tannins of the Cabernet to soften and integrate.
Deep crimson red with purple hues. Bright and lively aromatics of sweet berry, bramble and sour cherry dominate. The oak is subtle and lightly applied, showing as notes of cigar box and spice. All those bright fruits continue in the mouth alongside hints of white pepper and cocoa. The finish is all fresh raspberry rounded out by integrated silken tannin that builds gently, glass after glass.
