Argiano Solengo IGT 2000
Argiano is an ancient place
Full Of History At the summit of a wonderful hill southwest of Montalcino, the magnificent Villa of Argiano was built during the renaissance by the Peccis, a noble family from Siena. The very special vineyards which make a contributrion to Solengo are endowed with a convergence of propitious growing conditions which are ideal for the noble red grapes of France's Medoc and Cotes du Rhone, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah.
Rockbare Old Vine Shiraz ROCKBARE ARE HEART, body and soul McLaren Vale. Fruit growers have been experiencing trying times of late. This has freed up some very old and precious Shiraz vineyards, which Rockbare have gleefully accepted into the fold. Tim Burvill is very gifted as a winemaker and also as a raider of isolate parcels of mature vines. He retains access to some of the Vale's best Shiraz. In the vintages since inaugural release, a number of 50+ year old vineyards have come to light, which have been assembled into an immensely satisfying experience.
Henschke Cyril Cabernet 2007 EXCELLENT LANGTONS CLASSIFICATION. The label carries the name of Cyril Henschke (1924–1979) as a tribute to one of Australia's cardinal winemaking pioneers. Cyril planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the Eden Valley during the 1960s and was instrumental in crystalizing the Henschke name as an internationally recognizable luxury brand.
Moss Wood Cabernet  Sauvignon 2010 EXCEPTIONAL LANGTONS CLASSIFICATION. Moss Wood includes portions of Cabernet Franc for its cherry and Petit Verdot which contributes bright berry perfumes and a firmer structure. Moss Wood's Cabernet Franc shows less leafiness than Cabernet and can be picked earlier, when the fruit shows ripe berry flavour, similar to summer pudding. Further ripening tends to produce dark plum notes. While still slightly green, Moss Wood's Petit Verdot has an herbal note, more coriander than leaf, an ethereal, aromatic lift, redolent of violets and sweet berries.
Beresford Classic Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre THE ENDURING ACCORD OF GRENACHE SHIRAZ MOURVERDRE, showing sound structure, exceptional balance and exquisite depth, crafted by the most dedicated team of winemakers, Beresford are McLaren Vale, through and through. The consistency and enduring appeal of Bereford's award winning, hand crafted vintages is the culmination of an uncompromising dedication to the craft and attention to the smallest detail amongst the vines and in the winemaking.
Mesh is an
ambitious project by two of Australia's foremost Riesling specialists
When Robert Hill Smith from Australia's oldest family owned winery Yalumba, joined forces with Clare winemaker extraordinaire, Jeffrey Grosset to create a new Eden Valley Riesling, it was clear that this would be no ordinary wine. Jeffrey Grosset needs no introduction. His Polish Hill and Watervale Rieslings are highly prized Australian wines. The Hill Smith's Pewsey Vale Riesling is now regarded by many as a benchmark Australian estate Riesling.

Born of occasional musings between Robert Hill Smith and Jeffrey Grosset, the essence of this project is two of Australia's best known Riesling makers working together to elevate the status of both Riesling and the Eden Valley. The project also offered a forum in which both winemakers could share ideas, debate and discuss.

Given both Grosset's and Yalumba's history with Stelvin screw cap closures, it was only natural that this wine should be bottled under Stelvin. Yalumba was instrumental in the pioneering development of the Stelvin closure in the early 1970s. Jeffrey Grosset was a protagonist for the Clare Winemaker's 2000 and 2001 releases of Riesling with Stelvin closures.

The two parties agreed on the name, Mesh for all the images the word evoked

"This single word represents so much of the philosophy behind the wine - the weaving together of ideas and the combining of skills and knowledge" said Robert Hill Smith.

Jeffrey Grosset, a graduate of Oenology and Agriculture, he gained vast experience with larger Australian companies, and in Europe, before starting his own winery in 1980. Grosset Wines is in the historic township of Auburn, the gateway to the Clare Valley. Emphasis is placed equally on technical expertise in winemaking and viticulture.

All six wines Jeffrey produces consistently achieve outstanding ratings but he is best known internationally for his Polish Hill and Watervale Rieslings. In 1998, Jeffrey was voted The Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine "Australian Winemaker of the Year" and in the same year, named the inaugural "Riesling Winemaker of the Year" at the Riesling summit held in Hamburg, Germany.

In the renowned
Marlborough wine region of New Zealand, between the waters of Cloudy Bay and the jagged Kaikoura Mountains, lies the ancient glacial Awatere Valley
In the nineteenth century, early pioneers stopped in this valley at a place where their horses could wade across the Awatere River. They called this point The Crossings. Today, this spot falls within The Crossings wine estate, which is made up of three vineyards in strategic locations within the valley. While this land was once used by the settlers for grazing, recent years have increasingly seen it converted to vines, as this southern sub-region of Marlborough proves itself to be a prime vineyard location.
 The Crossings

While the Awatere Valley is producing wines different in style to those of northern Marlborough, wines from The Crossings offer a particularly individual expression of the Awatere. As one of the viticultural pioneers of the valley, The Crossings have been able to select a spread of the best sites, and from the many different parcels within these, are able to create individual wines that express the land in which they are grown. At the heart of The Crossings lie 140 hectares (346 acres) of vineyards spread over three specially selected sites on the northern banks of Awatere River in Marlborough's Awatere Valley These are wholly owned by The Crossings, ensuring complete control over the grapes.

The natural profile of the Awatere Valley, with its golden staircase of river terraces provides variations in soils and temperatures at different altitudes. This means that within each of The Crossings’ vineyards themselves numerous sites exist, offering a wide variety of parcels with diverse flavour profiles from which we create our blends. This enables the crafting of well structured and individual wines, which retain an unmistakable Marlborough profile, while exuding Awatere character. The Crossings' viticultural focus is on maintaining low yields and achieving good vine balance to produce fruit that ripens uniformly and with maximum flavour intensity.

Working in harmony with nature forms the root of The Crossings’ vinegrowing programme and has directed all aspects of site preparation, planting and vineyard management. In an age where the drive to maximise production has transformed diverse ecosystems into monoculture in many of the world’s vinegrowing areas, The Crossings celebrates biodiversity, and has left many of the fine old trees and existing vegetation on our sites. The estate also avoids the use of pesticides and herbicides and follows the practices of New Zealand’s Sustainable Winegrowing programme.

The Awatere Valley is the southern sister valley of the Wairau Valley, where Marlborough's Sauvignon Blanc legacy began. As interest has grown in the Awatere, vineyard plantings have risen to around 1,200 hectares (3,000 acres), with very little prime viticultural land now left in the valley. The Awatere Valley shares many general climatic characteristics with the Wairau Valley, such as the low rainfall, high sunshine, warm summers, cool nights and long dry autumns ideal for producing high quality wines. However, bud burst for vines on lighter soils in the Awatere can be a little earlier than in the Wairau, while the region's harvest can be later, often giving Awatere grapes a longer ripening period in which to develop intense flavours.

With a relatively high water table in the Wairau Valley, the natural vigour of a vine like Sauvignon Blanc must be constantly checked in the vineyard in order for the vine to concentrate its energy on its grapes. However, the lack of underground water in the Awatere's free draining glacial outwash gravel soils, limits both the vigour and yield of its vines. This enables the vines to achieve a good balance and allows the viticulturalist greater control of vigour. The result is ripe concentrated fruit which makes wines that embody the distinctive minerally style of the Awatere.

John, Barbara and
Kane Jaunutis love of the Barossa with its wines, people & lifestyle developed over 30 years of visiting the region
In 2002 they set out to live the dream and passion and bought the Landhaus property with its Vineyard and Cottage built in 1842 by the first Barossa Settlers. It was a tough start as the vineyard was badly distressed and in need of a lot of T.L.C. So the decision was made to cut and drop the grapes from the 02 vintage, so the vines could shut down with happy memories. After a further 12 months work on the vineyards, the vines starting to respond and good bunches forming when disaster stuck, 2 weeks before the 03 vintage with a freak hailstorm and heavy rain which ruined the crop and once again we had to cut and drop the grapes.

Finally in 04 Landhaus with son Kane, as winemaker, produced the first vintage of Basket Pressed Shiraz, 270 Dozen, which sold out in 8 weeks when it was released. The dream was realized and the vision to produce super premium wines was born. Landhaus now produces 8 varieties totaling 4800 cases of premium & super premium wines per year. The vision was for Landhaus to be distinctly Boutique & Contemporary Australian, reflecting a commitment to uncompromising quality and innovation.

Kane Jaunutis, set the Landhaus winemaking philosophy, their family represents the heart of all activities. All the generations of people in the Barossa who devoted their lives to wine, have instilled in their souls a deep respect for the identity of the territory and a firm characterization of Landhaus wines.

What they want to offer is simply the best interpretation of the Barossa terroir through their deep rooted beliefs, by trying to mediate and to mix tradition with innovation, according to the Latin saying in medio stat virtus. Landhaus wines never look for unconditional approval, their personality is not prone to easy compromise. Landhaus want to make wines that are stylish, seductive and sophisticated.

John Jaunutis came to the wine industry from a finance background. He developed his passion for wine having spent years attending wine tastings and collecting and drinking the wines of the world. From day one, John's role has been multifaceted. Barbara joins the Wine Industry from a fairly diverse & successful career.

Kane Jaunutis is the Winemaker, she has a reputation as a innovative and progressive young winemaker who's attention to detail have ensured the creation of the best interpretation of Barossa Valley regional wines, using the finest fruit, intuitive winemaking and aged in super fine oak. Kane has managed one of Australia's Best Wine Retail stores in East End Cellars and has worked vintages with Trevor Jones and Mitolo. In 2005, Kane was employed by Mitolo as a Winemaker and to help with the Sales and Marketing. From there Kane has taken over the reins as Winemaker of Landhaus wines, which has led to James Halliday putting Landhaus in the Top Ten Best New Wineries in Australia in his 2010 companion from a first time submission.

Kahurangi Estate is
a New Zealand family owned boutique vineyard specialising in handmade wines
Kahurangi Estate was established in the early 1970s, later acquired in 1998 by the Day family who changed the name to Kahurangi Estate. Kahurangi is the Maori word meaning treasured possession, precious jewel, pale greenstone and blue sky. Kahurangi National Park is New Zealand's newest and second largest national park some 452,000 hectares, situated in the northwest corner of the South Island, best known for its Heaphy Track.

Kahurangi National Park lies adjacent to the village of Upper Moutere which was originally settled by German immigrants who arrived on two ships. The St Pauli in June 1843 and the Skiold in April 1844. At that time the village was named Sarau but was changed to Upper Moutere at a time when many German names in the district were being anglicised following the outbreak of war with Germany. Many ancestors of these early immigrants still farm the area today and German surnames dominate the councils land register for the area.

The Kahurangi Estate vineyard is 33kms from Nelson C.P.O and a 30-minute drive from central Nelson. In terms of closer population areas it lies between Richmond and Motueka being a 15-minute drive from both centres. Kahurangi Estate is a 20 minute drive from Nelson Airport. The property has roads to three sides and is triangular in shape. It consists of 30 acres (12.14 hectares) of land and is boarded by Sunrise Rd, Sunrise Valley Rd and Moutere Highway.

Twenty-six acres are planted in five grape varieties being: - Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. All grafted on American rootstock from plantings. During the 1999 Vintage we harvested 114 Tonnes from the Estate. On the remaining four acres are the owners house, a 1400 sq. metre winery complex with a licensed sales and cafe area, large office and boardroom, laboratory and a separate 240sq metre workshop and covered storage area.

As well as producing grapes from its own vineyard Kahurangi also leases a further 30 acre vineyard, which it also manages. The vineyard is located 1km from Kauharangi Estate, on the northern side of the village of Upper Moutere. Plantings consist of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. There is also a small planting of Monepulciano on the property. Five Oaks comes into full production by 2006 and should produce on average between 90 to 100 tonnes per vintage.

The Winery is a modern facility with the majority of tanks and processing equipment purchased new over the last few years. Much of the equipment is state of the art and assists in achieving the high quality expected from the Kahurangi Brand. With up to 200 tonnes of grapes secured annually from its home block and Five Oaks vineyard, Kahurangi Estate also buys in grapes from selected Nelson growers. Kahurangi has in place a range of contracts to ensure premium supply of grapes from a range of soil types and micro climates. Kahurangi can boast being the 3rd largest winery in the Nelson region, and one of the fastest growing small wineries in New Zealand.
