This was a great wine when it was released and now with a little bit of age it is glorious
Brockenchack 2013 Jack Harrison Shiraz
Colour – Deep purple-crimson
Nose/Palate – The bouquet immediately expresses black fruits, allspice and a hint of oak, all of which gain volume on the medium- to full-bodied palate; it is positively rich and voluptuous on the mid-palate, but the back-palate and finish have an open weave, and confer an overall spicy/cedary elegance.

Sensational Chateauneuf-du-pape from the fantastic 2016 vintage. Subtle and elegant with soft tannin and a sweet peppery finish. 🍷

Calvert Vineyard is located just two km east of the Elms Vineyard on Felton Road. The gentle north-east facing slope lies immediately below the hills of the Bannockburn Gold Sluicings, now a historic park. The tailraces of Bailey’s and Pipeclay Gullys’, that carried away massive amounts of sluiced gold workings, flank the vineyard to the west and east respectively and provide helpful cold air drainage to minimise frost risk. The vineyard land had been home to a few sheep, rabbits and briar bushes prior to the planting of vines in 2001. Felton Road started leasing the entire Calvert Vineyard in 2001 (10.2ha) and in 2013 purchased outright the Willows, Springs and Aurum Blocks totalling 4.6 ha of Pinot Noir.
