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..

It was a matrimony between an American biochemist and the founder of Margaret River Devils Lair, that set the scene for one of the nation's most illustrious estates. A member of the Top 1OO Wineries of World, Giant Steps were established 1997, with a view to assembling an elite range of limited release Yarra Valley vintages. Crafted from the fruit of superior sites, some yielding just a few hundred cases each year, these are exclusive editions from bespoke parcels of elite terroir, bearing the curiously cryptic monikers of precious blocks of vine, Gruyere Farm, Applejack and Wombat Creek.

Dominique Portet Fontaine Rose CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz Yarra Valley Victoria
Named for a stylized French stone fountain which stands outside the Portet wineworks, Fontaine is an entirely appropriate adjective for this effortlessly luscious wine. Fontaine Rose is tickled pink, the colour just blushes through the glass, a visually stunning wine with chic and panache, as designed by Monsieur Portet. Parcels of Yarra Valley Merlot and Cabernet infuse the wine with delectable flavours of mixed summer berry, a component of Pyrenees Shiraz adds a sprinkling of revitalizing spice to the lightness of the easy drinking pink style.

Dominique Portet calls Australia home, but his bond with Bordeaux cannot be broken. His family has been in the wine industry since 1780 and before. It is actually longer but any official records were lost during the revolution. The earliest remaining document dates back to 1720, relating to the sale of Eaux de Vie by the Portet family to Martell. Fontaine is sagaciously fashioned to emulate the French penchant for leisurely drinking, where Rose sipping is venerated as the most rejuvenating pastime. Savouring a chilled, blush coloured wine on balmy evenings is considered de rigueur amongst the bon vivant of Provence, it's now an essential part of today's relaxed Australian lifestyle.
A blushing, rose coloured wine. Scented with plum, cherry, jujube and spice characters, made complex by lighter fragrances of biscuit and confection, rosewater and glace. A mouthful showing fruits of the forest and spice, ripe black cherry, blueberries, red apple and stalk. Delightfully fruit driven in moreish styling, a fresh, elegant wine with a superb red berry fragrance and delicious drying, savoury finish.
