    The Yarra Valley was first noted as a wine region in the 1800s. But it was in the 1960s when Moët & Chandon saw its potential that the world sat up to pay attention. This is a prime location for cool climate winemaking. Rich, loamy soils are just the beginning, as warm sunshine, breezes off the Southern Ocean and cool evening temperatures help the vines produce fruit of great intensity and concentration. Chandon’s sparkling wines are made with all the quality and prestige of their international counterparts. Made by method traditionelle and aged in bottles for a minimum of 18 months adds layers of complexity and texture that is deserving of the famous Chandon name. This Brut Rosé is a fresh, vibrant and elegant aperitif style sparkling - gentle and creamy with mouth filling stone fruits, strawberry and vanilla ice-cream characters. The inclusion of red Pinot Noir in the assemblage provides an extra layer of complexity, additional richness and persistence to the dry, crisp finish.

    This exquisite (and exclusive) new vintage sparkling from Chandon is a truly exceptional expression of chardonnay. It is delicate and floral to start, followed by a creamy mid‑palate, then a lingering, zesty finish. Tastes best in good company.

    Typically restrained for a young 'Merle' displaying pristine aromas of lime, lemon and stone fruits along with a hint of wet slate and talc. The palate again restrained / subtle with the citrus characters the main drivers, but once the acid kicks in the whole thing livens up and the textural / talc elements of the palate are apparent. It displays great length of flavour and a pureness that typifies this vineyard. In summary another terrific vintage that will not harm its reputation as one Clare’s finest Riesling examples. For those who like their Rieslings crisp and fresh with a little texture it will appeal immediately, but for those who like complex lemon butter and toastiness of bottle aged Clare Valley Riesling you can cellar it for 8-15 years.

    Shiraz can be a real charmer in the Clare Valley. The fruit flavours get ripe without being heavy. Pikes Shiraz shows this quality with ripe dark fruits, hints of chocolate and licorice and some spice from oak. There is balance and earthy charm and the palate is soft with a backbone of dusty tannins. The colour is deep and dark, the aroma is filled with black fruits and aniseed. It's full bodied, deep and concentrated, but at the same time it's youthfully bold and primary. A classic big Clare red, with ample tannin and length.

    Pikes does a great job with this Bordeaux blend with its obvious varietal and stylistic character. There's a firm tannin backbone just as the Bordelais deliver, yet there is much more in the fruit department, with plump plums and blackberries sprinkled with Clare mint leaf and spice. A complete package!

    An outstanding expression of single vineyard Yarra Valley chardonnay. Australian oaked, the palate is the perfect balance of nut and spice combined with the generous fruit flavours of white peach, grapefruit and melon. Pale straw with green hues. Grilled citrus, yeast, white fleshed stone fruit, peach skin, flecks of flint, hints of florals and burnt match complexity. The palate has depth, weight and texture. It crashes across like a wave leaving a sense on generosity and concentration but without losing its shape as the taught preserved-lemon acidity keeps it on line leaving a tangy, very long grapefruit finish. • Gold | Winemaker Of The Year Gourmet Traveller 2017,

    Outstanding fruit depth, weight and complexity set the stage for a Pinot that will reward both immediate drinking together with a short to medium term rest in the cellar. Think deep raspberry, along with red and dark cherry fruits and there's hints of cedary wood to complement a spicy perfume. Excellent acidity and fine tannins making this an ideal food wine particularly with game meats.

    Dave Bicknell has once again delivered something spectacular. That classic core of acidity, delivering precision line and length is very much present and surrounded by a deliciously subtle, yet round spectrum of stone fruit. A touch of 'struck match' and cedar wood derived from barrel fermentation and maturation respectively, adds to trademark phenolic crunch.

    When we caught up with Vanya she was tasting the freshly pressed 2018 cabernets. Tasting is such a huge part of her role; the days spent tasting grapes in order to choose a harvest time she says, is her most important decision. In fact, from what she says if there were a book about her life it’d be called Connected to the Vine Most of the Time. It’s a telling title and just as well the love of wine is deeply engrained within her. It was that love that drove her to pursue winemaking in the first place after a happy childhood growing up on a farm. Her great passion is making wines of great depth and detail but doing so sustainably. - Vanya Cullen Managing Director & Chief Winemaker Cullen Wines. This wine was produced on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. This outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot displays densely flavoured ripe dark fruits complemented by discrete fine-grained tannins. It was matured in French oak barrels for 6 months. Delicious

    This quality wine was produced on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. It was produced from Sauvignon Blanc harvested exclusively from the family’s Mangan Vineyard and on the day when the moon was opposite Saturn. A great expression of Sauvignon Blanc, with white flowers notes and tropical fruit aromas. Marvellous amalgam of pomelo, apple, cumquat with great mineralty on the finish.
