Dalwhinnie Eagle Series Shiraz
Pyrenees
Ever since inaugural release of vintage 1986, the splendid Dalwhinnie Eagle Series Vineyard has been recognized as an exceptional effort from a truly distinguished site. The property was first planted to Shiraz in 1977, the vineyard is completely dry grown, barely more than a hectare in size. Vines grow to a relatively wide 3.4 x 1.8 metre grid, on ancient sedimentary soils and bony quartz shale outcrops. The unique aspects of this elevated property at 385 metres above sea level, coupled with meticulous hand picking and hand pruning yields the most precious fruit.

Very dark brick red. An enticing nose of luscious dark bramble patch fruits, interwoven with damp autumn leaf mulch and musk stick perfume. There is also a hint of licorice. The weight of the wine is full bodied with the fruit flavour profile fully ripe. Eagle is extremely rich on the palate, exhibiting concentrated shiraz flavour lasting for well over a minute in the mouth. The tannins have gradually softened over time to give this beautiful wine a long and graceful finish.

Another challenging year and more great wines. The vintage itself for Dalwhinnie was outstanding, but with only average yields. Plenty of sunshine and minimal rain, but the volumes were down a little on the previous year. Moonambel Vineyard, in the parched districts of western Victoria, is strictly unirrigated, the emphasis here continues to lean strongly towards organic viticulture. The site has been re developed utilizing to a vertical shoot positioned canopy. Introduction of new and improved clones remains part of the ongoing viticultural program, enhancing and evolving the complexity of Dalwhinnie wines.
 
An enigmatic deep dark purple/ blue colour. Bouquet shows rich dark red fruits and bramble, menthol, mint and perfumes of violet. The palate holds an intense flavour profile, tight and restrained, well structured with juicy black fruits over finely grained cedary tannins. Lively and fully dimensional fruit flavours, very broad with nuances of blackberry, liquorice flavoured tnnins and ripe tarry fruit. The mouthfeel is finely textured with sweet cassis and cedary tones which run tightly across the palate.

Dalwhinnie vineyard was planted to a unique topographical amphitheatre which precipitates its own meso climate. The site is totally frost free and allows fruit to reach complete physiological ripeness in nine out of ten years. This rare confluence of temperate climes, cooler altitudes and parched Pyrenees soils, sublimate into one of Australia's most enduring and distinctive styles of Cabernet Sauvignon. A stunning wine, the overall impression is of ripe pure black fruits, layered with rich dark chocolate and seasoned by notes of violet and camphor.

Out in Victoria's west country, planted to rocky scenic uplands, parched vines struggle to survive, yielding tiny little berries of the most concentrated and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon. Ballarat architect Ewan Jones established Dalwhinnie in 1976, his eldest son David has managed it since 1983. It's the kind of family devotion to winemaking that one finds in the great estates of the world. At 595 metres above sea level, Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest crags, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills.
 
Dark cherry red. Fine elegant cedar cigar box perfume with lifted dark berry fruits, clean and varietally articulate. Very fresh. Very tight and highly strung, displaying fruit, oak and acid in fine balance. The harmony of these three elements is impeccable for such a young wine. Shows all the character and style of a grand cru left bank bordeaux. The super league of Victorian Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dalwhinnie Moonambel Shiraz
Pyrenees

Excellent Langtons Classification. The Dalwhinnie vineyard is situated on the 37th parallel, within a unique amphitheatre which has its own unique mesoclime. The poor fragile soils left over from alluvial mining projects in the early 1800s are some of the hardest and hungriest anywhere. The first Shiraz vines, planted to the Grand Piano Block, were rootlings from the eminent Sunraysia Nurseries at Mildura. The site is totally frost free and harvests achieve complete physiological ripeness nine out of ten years, all vintage releases must surpass expectations.

Pyrenees

Excellent Langtons Classification. A more masculine style of Shiraz, a wine of immense power and complexity, vinified from parcels of small, gnarled berries with massive concentration of fruit characters, picked off the most enduring vines grown to the parched western districts of country Victoria. The structure and complexity is impressive, exhibiting the taste and nose of Grand Cru Hermitage. An appealing freshness to the wine brings it forward, Dalwhinnie ages magnificently but is a profound experience to savour immediately upon release.

Extraordinary colour, purple, red and bright. Very rich, smelling of ripe mulberry, amazing savouriness already with the intriguing Christmas pudding spices. The oak is beautifully integrated and well in the background. Vibrant nervy dark berry fruits explode on the palate suggesting serious concentrated power, yet the weight of the wine is elegant, displaying the Dalwhinnie hallmark black olive character. The fruit, oak and acid are in perfect harmony.
Dalwhinnie Pinnacle Shiraz
Pyrenees
Available in cartons of six
Full bodied, single block Shiraz of controlled power and amazing grace, crafted from a small parcel of precious fruit, picked off a rare clone, transplanted to Moonambel from an ancient Barossa vineyard in 1997. An opaque, masculine wine treated to an extended term of age in an extravagant choice of medium toast Allier French oak, its virile bouquet of musky jube aromas and seasoned sandalwood precedes a voluminious palate of dark berries, bramble and cassis, a wine of intense concentration supported by the splendour of masculine, savoury tannins.

Dalwhinnie is located near the tiny village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, Australia and is a super premium producer of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay

Dalwhinnie

At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges.

Ownership of Dalwhinnie has remained within one family. In 1972 the remote property was purchased. The founder, Ballarat architect Ewan Jones, established the vineyard in 1976. His eldest son David, has managed it since 1983 and, with his wife, Jenny, has owned it since 1994. It's the kind of stability that one finds in the greatest estates all around the world.

David Jones firmly believes that the best grapes come from a healthy well pruned vine which has the proper balance of fruit to foliage to ripen the bunches quickly and efficiently. The bunches must be disease free, compact in composition and have good exposure to sunlight. He believes ultimately that great wines are produced from these grapes grown on unique elevated single vineyard sites and Dalwhinnie is fortunate to possess several of these sites.

Dalwhinnie vineyard is situated in a unique amphitheatre that has its own meso climate. The site is totally frost free and allows the fruit to reach complete physiological ripeness in 9 out of 10 years which is very important in establishing a long term premium label.

The vineyard is situated on the 37th parallel south and the poor and fragile soils from left over alluvial mining areas in the early 1800's are some of the hardest and hungriest you will ever see. The climate and soils are well suited to the production of complex shiraz and that is why Dalwhinnie specialize in this great variety.

The first plantings in 1976 were the cabernet sauvignon contour block and the grand piano shiraz block, these were rootlings sourced from Sunraysia Nurseries in Mildura. Follow up plantings in 1977 included the "Eagle Series" shiraz block and the cabernet sauvignon cellar door block. The chardonnay was planted in 1980 and subsequent plantings took place in 1988, 1993, 1995 and 1997.

In addition to Dalwhinnie vineyard the David Jones family winemakers have an 8 hectare vineyard situated on Taltarni Road named Forest Hut. This vineyard is dedicated to mainly shiraz with four different clones planted and also a small amount of viognier and sangiovese for blending options in the future. The vineyard is designed for separate vinification of clones to assess flavour profiles and clonal performance. Once again this vineyard is dry land farmed with a VSP canopy, and the fruit from these new plantings will be sold for several years until the vines are mature.
