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 estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
Xavier Bizot can make wine anywhere he pleases, he is a Bollinger and grew up amongst the Vignobles Superieurs of Champagne. Bizot has chosen to make wine alongside Brian Croser's family, from grapes harvested off three magnificent sites, on two paradoxically varied terrains. Planted to the salubrious Terra rosa soils atop an invaluable archeological dig at Wrattonbully, rich with the undisturbed fossils of ancient Cenozoic sea animals, Crayeres Vineyard was established right across the road from Tapanappa's illustrious Whalebone. The weather here is astonishingly similar to Bordeaux and makes an awesome Cabernet Franc. Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser are also fortunate to take their pick of properties in..

Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot. Victoria's Gippsland is a place of paradise for vintages in the Burgundy style, a oenological wonderland of.. A glimpse of the gippsland grail»
Giovanni Tait mastered the family tradition of coopering wine barrels before migrating to Australia in 1957. He took up work in the Barossa and ultimately settled in for a lengthy engagement at B Seppelts and Sons, where he played a significant role in the vinification and maturation of some of the most memorable vintages in Australian viticulture. Tait's boys grew up to be winemakers, their attention to detail and close relationship with the Barossa's finest growers have earned the highest accolades from the international wine industry press. Generously proportioned yet exquisitely balanced, famously praised, perennially by savant Robert Parker as the most consistently outstanding quality, exceptional..

EandE Sparkling Shiraz 2005 - Buy
Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Each year a small parcel of E&E Black Pepper Shiraz is set aside for secondary fermentation and maturation on yeast lees. E&E have won much adulation for their Shiraz, claiming conspicuous trophies at the prestigious London International.
E&E is fashioned from vines over sixty years of age, grown to superior vineyards tended by some of Australia's most distinguished growers. After a traditional six day ferment on skins, parcels are barrel aged for eighteen months in a mix of new and seasoned French and American oak, exactly the same treatment as the flagship E&E Black Pepper Shiraz. Following the assemblage, base wines are matured for a further year in old French oak barrels, to add complexity and soften the tannins. Upon completion, E&E is treated to a traditional bottle fermentation, before lees ageing in bottle, riddling and disgorgement. Topped at disgorgement with a touch of liqueur to give a touch of sweetness to the finish. Alcohol 14.0%
Vibrant deep red with purple hue. A bouquet as bold as it is beautiful, showing lifted ripe red and black fruits, aromas of lifted cherry, chocolates and spice are balanced by gentle oak. Very ripe and mouthfilling with a fine mousse and long fruit finish. Very layered and complex, a touch of sweetness is balanced by fresh acidity. A resilient, fine, firm structure, exceptional length, superbly grained tannins and an essential, rich mouth feel. The palate expresses strong fruit, finishing long and dry.
