The emergence of Balgownie Estate as a preminent winemaker in the 1970s led to the rapid expansion of the central goldfields wine growing region and was a significant player in the rebirth of the Victorian wine industry as a whole. In 1999, fine wine enthusiasts Des and Rod Forrester assumed proprietorship of Balgownie and set about updating the vineyards and winery. The Forresters embarked on a search for the idyllic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir site, eventually identifying a property in the Yarra Valley where they established seven hectares of closely managed vines. Crafted to Methode traditionelle, Balgownie Brut is rested on sediments before completing secondary fermentation in bottle. Alcohol 12.5%

Viticultural management practices aim to strike a balance between vegetative growth and moderate yields. A backbone of richly flavoured Bendigo Shiraz is treated to a short maceration and co-vinified alongside parcels of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, achieving a crisp sparkling wine with pink rose hue and lively effervescence.

Established 1963 by the Champagne houses of Charles Heidsieck and Krug, an adherence to the transcendent French influence of the founders is central.

Although hand picked fruit is often most desirable for the production of premium quality juices, day time temperatures in Australia can mean that the grapes will often be quite warm when received into the press after a day's picking. Nowadays the Blue Pyrenees team select the best fruit parcels, whilst still on the vine, to be separated out from the rest and picked at night by hand to generate the juices which will become Midnight Cuvee. Although very laborious and time consuming, the rewards are evident in the glass. Midnight Cuvée is made entirely from estate grown fruit, predominantly Chardonnay for elegance and refinement, with a touch of Pinot Noir. Alcohol 12.5%

Prosecco grapes thrive in cool growing conditions, inspiring the Brown Brothers team to plant vines on the chilly slopes of their Banksdale property, 485 metres above sea level in the upper reaches of the King Valley. The fruit is picked later and at a slightly higher baume, to deliver a soft and well rounded, approachable young wine. Although the wine is fermented to dry, the extra time fruit spends hanging on the vine allows grapes to develop more intense flavours and aromas. After primary vinification the wine was fermented, Metodo Italiano or Charmat method, in tank to five atmospheres of pressure and bottled promptly to retain the bubbles, achieving an easier to enjoy style of sparkling. Alcohol 11.5%
