Coonawarra cattle graziers since 1906, the Reschke family turned some of their land over to viticulture in the 1980s. Such was the quality of Reschke fruit, that it became an essential inclusion for some of Wynn's most memorable vintages and a number of national icon wines. Reschke now keep the pick of crop for their own label, the most princely harvests of Coonawarra Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz, characterised by their defined regional eloquence and ingratiating palate weight. The fruit of vines, planted to iron red terra rosa soil and nourished by the fertile plenitude from generations of grazing cattle, for every ardent enthusiast of born and bred, baronnial Coonawarra marques...

Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands. The windswept maritime vineyards of little Portsea Estate yield the quality of Mornington that have to be experienced... Mornington's westernmost vineyards»
Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by their affable excellence, sound structure and pristine, penetrating varietal fruit...

Leeuwin Estate Leeuwin Siblings Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia
Margaret River makes famously intense, deeply stylish Shiraz, somewhat more sanguine and evocative than its distant relations from winegrowing regions further afield. The balmy maritime breezes and cooler nights produce a Shiraz wine that conjures up impressions of the prevailing mistral winds of Valley Rhone. Slightly more forward drinking than the estate flagships, Sibling is endowed with layers of radiant olive/plum fruit characters and piquant spice characters, supported by excellent length of the most graceful tannins.

Leeuwin Estate was at the very apex of Margaret River viticulture. Originally a cattle farm, it was developed under the auspices of American wine industry legend Robert Mondavi. The property was deeply ploughed and deep ripped, emptied of stone, pegged and planted by hand in the 1970s. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979 and was thrust into the international spotlight when UK Decanter gave its highest recommendation to the Art Series Chardonnay in an international blind tasting. Leeuwin now maintains a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, still under management of the resourceful Mondavi family.
A brilliant deep ruby/ violet hue. Bouquet displays black pepper with nuances of spicy clove wrapped around blackberry and satsuma plum fruit which is further strengthened by spicy French oak. A medium weight wine showing an increasing intensity of flavour with dark raspberries and satsuma plums on the palate. Extremely soft and approachable through the middle with fine grain tannins contributing to an excellent wine of elegance, balance and power.
