Domaine les Deux Terres is about two friends, Vincent Fargier and Manu Cunin, who love wine. Both Vincent and Manu are from the Ardèche. They met in 1997. At the time, without the vineyards of their own, they together worked for a winery in Provence. Vincent worked in the vineyards while Manu worked in the cellar. Over the years, each moved on to different wine-related jobs. Then in 2007, they met again serendipitously when they were individually working at separate but neighbouring domains. So, Vincent and Manu kept bumping into each other. That is when they started dreaming about a domain of their own. Manu eventually purchased some vineyards that sit on a high altitude with basalt terroir. Meanwhile, Vincent got some clay-limestone vineyards from his family as his father was retiring. Thus, Domaine les Deux Terres was born.
This is an equal blend of Syrah on clay-limestone and Grenache on basalt. Sometimes, a dollop of Merlot is also added for spice complexity. Each varietal is fermented separately but blended into neutral barrels, where the élevage is about six to eight months. The presence of Syrah is self-evident in colour, length and perfume.
Craiglee Cabernet Sauvignon 2017. A sensational, medium-bodied cabernet sauvignon loaded with fragrant red and ripe blackberry fruits. It builds with savoury, cedary notes, supple velvety tannins and subtle oak that brings this wine together beautifully and to a long finish. Top stuff. All Craiglee wines are made from estate grown fruit, handpicked from vines that are hand pruned and carefully tended here on our family farm.
Flametree SRS Wallcliffe Syrah 2018
This unashamedly medium bodied Syrah styled Shiraz shows lovely lifted spice, clove, orange peel, liquorice, plum, blackberry and earthy notes. The palate displays a wonderful core of elegant blue/black fruits, spice and fine tannins. The lifted fruits are supported by a nice core of oak and stalk tannin.
Hand picked fruit was refrigerated overnight before being carefully destemmed in order to retain whole berries. This fruit was conveyed into bins and again refrigerated whilst the stems were washed and dried in the sun for 5 days. The dried stems were placed in an open fermenter and the whole berry fruit was then poured over the stalks. The must was soaked for about 4 days before the wild ferment kicked in. Once the ferment was active we started to plunge and foot stomp the whole fruit and dried stems. After ferment was complete we pressed the skins and transferred the wine into 15% new French oak puncheons for 16 months maturation.
Xanadu Exmoor Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a generous cabernet which contains blackcurrant and chocolate characteristics. This combined with a leathery aged background on the palate means this is more than your average cabernet.
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. The wine has a deep ruby red colour, and at the nose it pleasantly surprises with notes of pepper, cinnamon, berries such as currant, blueberry and a cherry base. Compelling in the mouth, with fine and flaunt tannins, structured body, well balanced, with a fresh note calibrated. The finish is inviting and complex.
Minnow Creek The Black Minnow Sangiovese Cabernet 2018 Showing a generous entry of bright red fruits leading to an intense burst of deep vibrant dark cherry fruits with a touch of typical savouriness from the Sangiovese. The mid palate shows a rich complexity of red and black fruits derived from the Cabernet component.The back palate combines an intense array of vibrant complex berry flavours and allspice finishing with a delightful fine tannin structure of great length.
Irvine Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a fruit bowl of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries backed by cedar spice, black pepper and a savory streak. The savoriness continues on the palate in the form of fine-grained tannins that hold all that plump fruit in place. A plush but balanced expression of the Eden Valley.
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.
Warramate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 A medium-bodied “classic” claret style featuring a succulent, fruit-layered palate integrated with earthy complexity & fine dusty tannins. Juicy acidity underscores well-weighted voluminous fruit & a deep, long finish, combining generosity & concentration with finesse rarely found at this price point.
Marq DNA Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Lifted aroma of blueberry, black currant and chocolate mint with hints of cedary oak and signature Margaret River tomato leaf.
A full bodied wine with a rich juicy palate and abundant fine velvety tannins. It has intense red and black fruits with a background of tasty oak and hints of black jub and mocha.
