Bendigo
Available by the dozen
Balgownie Cabernet Sauvignon always attracts attention, displaying the elusive holy grail of exemplary varietal definition with distinctive Bendigo regionality, a tradition which has positioned Balgownie as one of Victoria's most cherished Cabernet wines. Balgownie have established a reputation for being long lived whilst offering the ripeness of fruit to provide immense drinking pleasure on release.

Balgownie's Bendigo property was originally planted by local pharmacist Stuart Anderson in 1969. The initial plantings consisted of five acres each Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, they remain the mainstay until today. The vineyard is planted on alluvial clay soils that are low in fertility but provide good moisture retention. These soils naturally limit yields and produce grapes with depth and intensity. Traditional open concrete fermenters are employed to ensure a gentle extraction of colour and tannins. A portion of the wine remains on skins to macerate, building palate structure and firming up the tannins. The final wine is treated to an extended maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques.
 
Deep red purple in colour. Bouquet displays lifted blackberry fruit with tobacco leaf aromas and cedar oak. The palate exhibits concentrated blueberry and blackcurrant flavours, violets, dutch chocolate and cassis, backed by fine persistent tannins and supple, fragrant vanilla/ cedar oak characters which support the fruit and provide solid structure. The defining characteristics of Balgownie are elegance, balance and intensity.

Bannockburn Cabernet Merlot 2001

Bannockburn was established with a view to treating the vineyard as the engine of great wines, to maximise the potential of the site and to achieve a genuine expression of the vineyard from vintage to vintage. In essence to capture the terroir of the place. Bannockburn is never a reflection of market fashion or trends. An exquisite assemblage of Cabernet and Merlot in opulent Bordelais styling, with an exemplary integration of pencilled oak, artisanally dovetailed fruit, splendidly drying acids and compassionate, supporting tannins.

Bannockburn Vineyards was established by Stuart Hooper in 1974 when he planted a three hectare block of vines near the township of Bannockburn, 25 kilometres north of Geelong. Bannockburn has since grown in size and notoriety to have it's wines listed with Langton's and become one of the most highly regarded small winemaking estates within Australia. Bannockburn's endeavours to create a wine that speaks purely of the unique terrain is the key to the production of some of Victoria's most memorable vintages. This sounds romantic but is far from easy. The desired outcome is only achieved through rigourous viticultural management, a hint of obsession and a minimum of hoopla.
 
The nose is classic aged Cabernet, leafy, cedar and cigar box characters. Reveals some savoury, leather notes and a hint of menthol over a very restrained palate. Tannins at the back indicate this wine is still quite youthful. A very long and restrained palate in a very classic style of Cabernet Merlot.

Berrys Bridge Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Pyrenees
A dry grown, single vineyard, hand crafted Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon. George Berry started his vineyard and orchard in 1862 on the banks of Carapooee Creek.

Milner developed his passion for viticulture after several vintages at Chateau Reynella in the 1970s. He joined forces with Holt BAppSc(WineSc) & AssocDegAppSc(Wine-growing), and happily took on the challenge of re-developing the site.

Brown Brothers Australian Tawny Port
Milawa
The richness of Shiraz and the softness of Grenache together with smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignane, Mataro and other varieties, combine together in the Port Soleras at Milawa to produce this Tawny style Port. The fortifying grape spirit is subtle and the wood maturation of this young tawny port has enhanced the developed qualities of the wine. The Reserve Port is drawn from a labyrinthine complex of soft old wines stored under the Brown Brothers cellars in barrel, and blended with fruity young wines into a warm nutty, and satisfyingly rich old Port.

The concept of age in relation to wood-age is an important factor, which determines the flavour, richness of quality and price. One can say that the average age of wines used in the less expensive blends is around two to three years; for a medium quality, four or more; and for the finer blends, ten to twenty year old material would be used. But a young wine, say three or four years old, made up of a blend of three base wines, could in fact, contain a total of fifteen or so wines, since each of the major components is, itself, a blended result of a number of different wines of various ages and varieties.
 
This Reserve Port is a light tawny brown with a slight olive green rim. On the nose it has delicious aromas of dried apricot, date, prune and a hint of mocha. On the palate this delectable port is ample and rich with dried fruit and rancio flavours, indicating a wholesome integration of mature blended port material. It is not a cloying port, with sweetness balanced by the drying sensations that is derived from long ageing in oak barrels. The wine finishes with a spicy, warming, spirit sensation on the back palate. Port is the traditional after dinner wine with coffee. This port would also be delightful with a platter of dried fruits and nuts or a light blue cheese.

Cleanskin Yarra Valley Cabernet 2012
Yarra Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown to the higher altitudes of fine Yarra Valley vineyards, are deeply enthused by the extended growing seasons, brought about by cooler climes. Such slower ripening conditions encourage layers of intense flavours and varietal complexity. This unlabelled Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon articulates the influence of the region and skill of the winemaker. Outstanding value in a Cleanskin, an effusive wine of ripe varietal blackberry and cassis characters, gentle background oak and measured, disciplined tannins.

The Yarra Valley has been known to offer idyllic growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon since the middle of the nineteenth century. Vines were first planted in 1838 and viticulture spread rapidly. The earliest wines were so good that they were exported throughout the British Empire and gained much critical acclaim, particularly for Cabernet. The area was rediscovered as terre superieure for Cabernet Sauvignon in the late 1960s when the region was re established. This cleanskin has been crafted by a notable Yarra Valley estate who probably never anticipated releasing it without a label. Oak maturation has enabled the wine to attain finer balance and complexity, whilst softening tannins and enhancing the fruit.
 
Deep cherry red hue. Aromas of sweet berries dominate the nose, varietal notes of violet and creme de cassis are matched by earth and herbaceousness, whisps of cocoa oak, the leafyness of tobacco and mint. Rich and full palate, it delivers varietal fruit, luscious black currant and cassis, the darkness of boysenberry, cosseted by clove oak and supported by firm tannins. Match with ripe cheese, rib steaks or game.
