Great wine comes from the soil and speaks of where it is from. At All Saints Estate the deep sandy loam soils were carved from the granite of the mountains and then ground, mixed and shaped by the majestic River Murray. Vines planted long ago reach deep down for essential minerals and nutrients, drawing out the very essence of the place and concentrating it in each year's harvest of grapes. The oldest vineyard blocks of Muscat were planted just after the First World War. These old timers are picture postcard vines, weather beaten and twisted, defying the years to produce fantastic fruit. With careful nurturing, the vines yield the quality of fruit to craft luscious, world class fortified wines. Alcohol 18.0%
 
A bright tawny gold colour. Appealing aromas of luscious, freshly crushed grapes. These sensations are carried through onto the palate. The palate explodes with a profusion of fresh grape flavours adding a velvety texture to the wine, expressing the natural fruit sugar character of grapes picked late in the season at full ripeness. An appealing style of sherry that's already done its ageing, ready to be enjoyed upon release. With its mouthfilling flavours, All Saints can be sipped on its own or enjoyed alongside desserts.

The current stewardship at the ancient All Saints wineworks was established by Peter Brown of Milawa in 1962. He planted vines to take full advantage of the long, warm autumn days at Wahgunyah which are virtually perfect for allowing the fruit to ripen to high baume levels and raisining, so essential for the Tokay style. Grapes are left to hang until extremely ripe, hand picked and crushed to release the sweet, concentrated juices. A term of cold soak swells the shrivelled berries and extracts flavour from skins. A very short fermentation arrives at an alcohol of 18.0%, the finished wine is assembled from a selection of vintages, stored in large oak ovals at the All Saints chook shed, racked to bottle from time to time.
 
Golden amber hues. Aroma reveals wonderful sweetness along with an intriguing nose of marmalade and maple syrup, prunes, toffee and honeyed tea, a wine of age under well seasoned oak. Lovely flavours of butterscotch and apricot, fresh lifted spirit and that typical Tokay aroma of cold tea. Unctuous and sweet yet remarkably supple and light for its level of decadence, while the lush, complex palate finishes clean and lingering.

The All Saints Estate's pride and joy are the old vineyard blocks of Muscat, planted just after the First World War. These old-timers are picture-postcard vines, weather-beaten and twisted, defying the years to produce fantastic fruit. Grapes are left on the vine to get really ripe; many of them shrivel up to raisins. The fruit is picked and crushed. This macerates for a few hours in order to allow any raisined berries to swell up. It is then pressed and the juice prevented from fermenting by the addition of high-strength neutral alcohol. The wine is allowed to settle for a few days before being racked off to barrel for maturation. The Rutherglen level of the classification is for the youngest wines with only a few years barrel age.
 
Rich and luscious nose, perfumed aromatics of lovely peach and apricot with hints of lychee and spice. A hint of tangerine peel on the palate, rancio and honeyed almond, sweet wet tobacco and apple, smoke and leather. It's fresh and spicy, alluring and concentrated yet sleek. Creme brûlee flavours and a nice richness, smooth and elegant, lingering on the finish. There is no need to save All Saints for a special occasion as, unlike table wine, an opened bottle will last months before starting to deteriorate. Already done it's own ageing and is quite ready to drink.
All Saints The Keep Tawny Port
Rutherglen
Available by the dozen

All Saints pride and joy are the oldest vineyard blocks of vines, originally planted just after the First World War. These old-timers are picture-postcard vines, weather-beaten and twisted, defying the years to produce fantastic fruit. Predominantly made from Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro grapes, with added brandy spirit, which is used to fortify the wine, The Keep Tawny expresses the inimitabley rich personality of the deep, rancio-like qualities of Rutherglen grapes. During maturation of any fortified wine a significant amount of wine is lost through evaporation. This loss is normally between two to five per cent each year, and is affectionately referred to as the angels share (now there's something to look forward to!). Alcohol 18.
 
The wine has a tawny colour with hints of red. The aroma is a mix of ripe berry fruit, with rancio characters from extended barrel maturation. On the palate there is ripe fruit giving a generous mouth feel with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Nuances of deep liqueuring, Port and plum-like, chocolatey and wet with sweet scents of browned old grapes and dried sugary fruit. Delicious, nutty and velvety, ripe yet texturally soft, slabs of melty raisined chocolate, brushstrokes of caramel and Irish coffee, the wine has an attractive drying finish. This wine should cellar extremely well for between one and two decades. Enjoy with a cheese selection (the stronger types) or after dinner with well brewed coffee and a good conversation.

Steeped in history, the original Baileys store was situated next door to the Glenrowan Inn where widow Jones hosted Ned Kelly's siege. Following the gold rush, the Baileys turned to farming and settled on a property which they named Bundarra. Rural life was harsh and the Glenrowan countryside was stubborn. But the Baileys persevered, eventually sowing one of the most enduring vineyards in Australian history.

Baileys of Glenrowan manage some of Victoria's oldest plantings. After the devastation of phylloxera at the turn of the last century, vines were replanted to the rich, deep, red granite soils below the Warby Ranges. The favourable growing seasons at Glenrowan are characterised by long warm summers with very little rainfall, encouraging the fruit to develop intense flavours and high natural sugar levels. Following harvest at the peak of full physiological ripeness and a timely fermentation that's arrested by the addition of brandy spirit, parcels are treated to a spell of extended ageing in a mix of well seasoned large format oak. The final wine is assembled from a selection of barrels across several vintages.
 
Caramel, dense brown red in the glass. Nose exhibits varietal aromas of orange blossom, rose petals and dried fruit. The palate is generous and lush, full of complex fruit flavours resolving on a carefully balanced sweetness.

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.

From fruit grown to the highly specialised Mystic Park Vineyard, harvested late in the season to splendid levels of sugar baume. Orange Muscat is part of the Muscat family and hails from the southeast of France, deriving it's name from the golden hue the grapes develop when fully ripe and the strong aroma of orange blossom given off at vintage when the grapes are crushed. Flora was developed at the Californian Agricultural Department Station in 1958 from a cross between Semillon and Gewürztraminer. It produces a wine of fragrance and body with fresh acid backbone. Vinification of the fruit is arrested early to retain exciting flavours, aromas and complexity. Alcohol 10.0%

Muscat of Alexandria is part of the exotic Muscat family, many clones have been cultivated in Australia for as long as grapes have been grown here.

If harvested early, it produces delicate, perfumed and crisp, dry white table wines, but if left to hang on the vines for several weeks longer it produces rich flavoursome dessert styles. Parcels of Muscat of Alexandria grapes with a lesser component of Cienna are harvested at heightened levels of baume, to be briskly vinified and bottled upon completion. Alcohol 7.0%
