Balgownie can boast the oldest vines in Bendigo. Stuart Anderson established his vineyard on the rich soils of Maiden Gully, pioneering the commercialization of viticulture in the region. Balgownie continues to take massive strides, as the site has expanded to thirty hectares of the most spendid winegrowing terroir. The Shiraz vines have now stood the test of time, yielding parcels of the finest fruit. Grapes are destemmed, some bunches are crushed and pumped into a mix of open vats and fermenters, for two to three weeks of pumpovers and plunging, before being filled into a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels, where it reposes up to eighteen months prior to assemblage.

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.

Blackjack are just south of Bendigo, on an easterly slope, in the old fruit growing district of Harcourt Valley at the foothills of Mt. Alexander. The microclimate of this small boutique winery is considerably cooler than other vineyards, ablessed by Indian summers, cool nights and warm clear days, allowing the grapes to slowly ripen. Soils are very old, unfertile granites, although part of Block 6 is on richer sandstone gravels. The hand husbanded, hand picked vines on Block 6 were planted in 1998 and are a different clone to the original Shiraz stock. Vinified in traditional open fermenters, hand plunged and aged in French oak barriques for twenty two months, bottled unfined after minimal filtration.
 
Ruby red, purple hues. Dark berry and cherry aromas, black currants, nutmeg and mixed spice, complex festive pudding notes. In grand central Victorian styling, the palate shows abundant spice and pepper as well as fully ripe berry fruits, lovely rounded mouthfeel and texture, subtle oak in support. Superb balance of crisp peppery acids and fine oak tannins, a very persistent, remarkably long and lingering finish.
