Château Le Bruilleau 2014 – Pessac-Léognan
The wine is a blend of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon averaging 25 to 30 years of age. Once the grapes have been hand-picked and sorted at the cellar they are destemmed. The grains will undergo a pre-fermentation skin maceration at a cold temperature for 4 to 5 days to extract extra colour, flavours and structure. The fermentations in stainless steel vats will last 3 weeks for the Merlot and 4 weeks for the Cabernet Sauvignon at 28°C. The Merlot and Cabernet are aged separately in french oak barrels for 12 months of which 25% are new, the two grape varieties will be blended at the end of the ageing period.
PVins notes: Dark red in colour, complex aromas of cedar with subtle hints of oak and ripe dark fruits. Well structured and balanced with fine grained tannins, round and fleshy on the palate, good persistence on the finish with the oak well integrated. The wine may be cellared for 10+ years depending on the vintage.
Press: Bettane & Desseauve 14.5
Aromas of red fruits, nice oak, very fleshy with its tannic structure, long and balanced palate on the finish thanks to the freshness. A tense wine, full of elegance and character.

Plantagenet Aquitaine Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Intense cassis and dried floral aromas. With a dense vibrant core of berry fruit on the palate and hints of fresh tobacco and subtle earthy undertones. A very approachable, youthful Cabernet with potential to age.
Plantagenet’s total 126 hectares of vineyard have been carved out of the region’s distinctive Marri soils named after the massive native Marri, or Red Gum trees that grow here. The soils are ironstone gravelly loams over a base of clay, sand or the ironstone rock. The vineyards sites are selected where drainage is good enabling control over vine vigour, one of the most important determinents of fruit quality.The combination of soils, landforms and climate – or terroir – creates wines of rare distinction and quality.

Eldorado Road Quasimodo 2018
60% Nero d’Avola / 24% Shiraz / 16% Durif
To understand Quasimodo you must venture beyond the surface and explore the inner soul. As individual varietal wines they can struggle for love but when blended together they can sing, shine and bring harmony.
Quasimodo is a unique Australian blend of Nero d’Avola, Durif & Shiraz sourced from the regions of Eldorado and Rutherglen and in 2018 Glenrowan. It’s an amalgam of flavour and colour culminating in a complex rewarding wine.
The make of this blend changes year on year depending on the season with our desire to create an affable drink that has layers of complexity built in through the unique varieties and vineyards.
In 2018 the Nero d’Avola came from our home vineyard at Eldorado planted on rare decomposed red granite soils, washed down from the Beechworth Plateau by the meandering Ready Creek that runs through the farm. Wine from 3 different Nero ferments made its way into this years blend, picked at different ripeness, all fermented wild and one containing 20% whole bunch. Basket pressed and seasoned for 16 months in aged French Oak Puncheons on gross lees.
The Shiraz in 2018 comes from 2 vineyards with incredible pedigree. Unusually in 2018 70% of the Shiraz fruit came from the ancient dry land 1890’s planted “Dulcies” vineyard in Glenrowan as none of our flagship “Perseverance” Shiraz was made in 2018. The second parcel is sourced from the Mt Pilot Estate Vineyard perched in the Eldorado hills amongst the boulders of an ancient granite outcrop. This vineyard is painfully low yielding and produces grapes of incredible concentration and flavor, we pick at around 13 baume to retain freshness. Wine made from these grapes is consistently at the pointy end of our pre blending classification tasting and would make an excellent stand alone wine. Both parcels basket pressed and seasoned for 16 months in aged French Oak Puncheons on gross lees.
As per usual the Durif for Quasimodo is sourced from a tried and tested mature Rutherglen vineyard, picked a little riper at a baume of around 14-14.5. We are very conscious not to over extract the fruit, so as with all our reds it was hand plunged once daily and gently basket pressed. Quasimodo, like all our reds, is unfined and lightly filtered. Bottled July, 2020.
The Tellurian Redline Shiraz 2018 comes from Block 2 and Block 3 of the Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.
Deep crimson-red colour. The nose displays charcuterie notes, slightly chary oak, and expressive dark fruit. The medium bodied palate is round and plush with dark fruit, and blackberry combining with and spice and soft tannins, making it a wine that’s very approachable in its youth. This is an impressive expression of Heathcote Shiraz. Delicious! For an ‘entry level’ shiraz this shows the true class of this producer!
Il Gobbo Nero Syrah Toscana 2011
Il Gobbo Nero is our single-variety syrah, produced from the selection of the best syrah grapes of our vineyard. The vinification takes place in concrete tanks, then the wine rests for 12 months in French oak barriques. The wine spends 12 months of refinement in the bottle, before being sold.
