Amherst Chinese Gardens Cabernet Sauvignon
Pyrenees

The Daisy Hill district thrived throughout the 1850s, due to its location along the main route to and from gold fields. The Amherst property sits atop old alluvial tailings, ancient diggings can still be seen around the property dressed in rich quartz soils. The highly sought wines pay tribute to the heritage surrounding the vineyard. Amherst distinguishes its exceptional vintages, naming them after regional folklore, such as an escaped convict who was the first to cultivate local land, or the ancient Chinese market gardens, which dispensed fresh produce to the gold fields of yesteryear.

Amherst Daisy Creek Shiraz
Pyrenees
Available by the dozen
Positioned half way between Avoca and Ballarat, the modestly sized Amherst have only ten acres under vine. The small yields translate into extraordinarily structured, powerfully intense wines, brimming with fine aromatics and lined with silky tannins. Local folklore has it that a shepherd discovered gold at Daisy Hill in 1848, the region flourished and suitably arable parcels were planted to vine in the 1850s. The enduring, full bodied Aussie Claret style, supple and soft after fan extended maturation in quality oak barriques, thoroughly approachable as a youthful wine.

Amherst North South Shiraz
Pyrenees
Available by the dozen
Vinified from parcels grown to splendid Pyrenees vineyards, fashioned to be a generously proportioned wine with generous weight of fruit and firm, meaty tannins. Grapes are all hand picked, destemmed and inoculated for several days of ferment, basket pressed into a selection of new and seasoned oaks for an extended term of age. Enticingly perfumed of violets and morello cherry, a palate entry of blackberries and plum, spiced chocolates and prune over a fine structure of dutch chocolate tannins, a fully fragrant finish of blueberries and bramble over refined vanilla pencil oak.

Amherst Pinot Noir
Pyrenees
Available by the dozen
Samuel Dunn was an early Amherst resident, one of the first settlers to plant grapes in the Pyreness. His land was exploited for sheep grazing, until diggers found the locality alive with gold. The property was returned to viticulture in the 1990s and has since earned a reputation for limited releases of the finest Pyrenees wines. As with all vintages of Amherst, the amount of oak and alcohol are kept in check to ensure that the wine remains in perfect balance, the tannin structure is soft and very fine. An attractive prospect alongside well marbled beef and the finest haute cuisine.

They selected a site just outside of the main nexus of Pyrenees estates to plant vines. Ironically settling on the very terrain operated a century earlier by a pioneer named Berry who had also planted Shiraz.

Located amongst the undulating foothills on the northern slopes of Pyrenees Ranges, set to an altitude of 200 metres on red duplex soils/ red brown clays. The vineyard is operated with the emphasis on sustainable viticulture. Good canopy management generally minimises disease impact in this mild climate, and the ecologically friendly option is always exercised when selecting vineyard inputs. Many species of insect-eating birds love the habitat contributing to a healthy and diverse environment. The dry grown Shiraz grapes are hand picked and treated to small batch fermentation, hand plunged, basket pressed and matured in a combination of fine oaks before bottling without filtration.
 
Deep crimson with purple hues. The nose exhibits pure-fruited aromas of freshly crushed blackberries, hints of spice and fruitcake and a backdrop of roasted meats. The full-bodied palate is rich and full with lively red berries also showing through with a touch of earth and assertive, grippy tannins. Dense and chewy yet quite refined, Berrys Bridge has developed after a spell of bottle ageing.
