Nowhere in Victoria is the link between gold and wine more pronounced, and nowhere are the legacies of the 19th century miners more impressive, than the 1.6 kilometres (1 mile) of underground drives that run through Seppelt's Great Western which were hand excavated by unemployed miners after the gold had run out. The Nursery Block at Best's is another splendid example. Planted in 1867 it includes grape varieties so rare that several have defied all attempts at identification and are, in all probability, the sole surviving examples in the world. This is primarily a red wine area, producing wines that possess a rare combination of elegance and power, and an exceptional capacity to age. In part due to its location on the fringes of the Great Dividing Range which, in turn, provides altitude, the Grampians region has a significantly cooler climate than those areas to the east. However, it warms quite markedly between Great Western and Stawell to the north-west. The low heat summation at Ararat is offset Read more »

  • Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Shiraz Case of 6 Bottles 2006

    Snoothrank:
