This Chardonnay is fruit driven with a subtle backdrop of oak. The bouquet shows complex aromas of honeysuckle, peach, and citrus. These fruits carry through to the palate and combine with nutty oak characters and hints of butterscotch to create a multilayered mouth feel that finishes in a smooth creaminess. Try this with cheeses, seafood or poultry.

Our minimally filtered 2010 Pinot Noir has been produced using the process of carbonic maceration and whole bunch fermentation with wild yeast, first employed in France in the 1930’s. The result is a soft, earthy, style exhibiting cherry and plum aromas mingled with forest floor notes. These lead beautifully into a rich, complex and velvety palate which is further enhanced with a fine balance of old oak and spice. Try this with a good Brie, Camembert or Duck.

Cabernet Merlot bursting with rich dark berry fruit perfectly balanced with smooth, well-weighted tannins. The palate is complex and lingering. This is classically French in style, with the fruit having ripened in what was quite a mild and adequately wet summer - unusual for Melbourne these days! This wine is perfect now. Try this with Osso Bucco or a rich stew.

This beautifully balanced wine has a deep, rich palate of black cherries and chocolate. This interweaves seamlessly with the smooth tannins that give this wine its velvety mouth feel. Great length and good complexity culminate in a soft, spicy finish. There is a spritz on the end of the tongue due to the light bottle fermentation that was allowed, by minimizing levels of Sulphur in this wine. An excellent partner to beef, game dishes or mature cheeses. Don’t think of eating a steak without it.

You’ll find voluptuous aromas of tropical fruit and ripe nectarines, as well as honeysuckle in this fine Verdelho. It is un-oaked so as extend the beautiful fruit character. The aromas carry through to the palate which is long and crisp. Because of its long ripening time, a surprising complexity and rounded mouth feel reminiscent of a French Sauterne have developed. It will make a fine partner to cheeses, smoked foods, seafood and Asian cuisine. Because of its subtle sweetness it is equally at home with a sumptuous dessert.
Not traditionally cellared, but this one could last a few years
This wine has been produced for those who love a classic Methode Champenoise with its fine bead and perfect balance between creamy, yeasty characters and delicate fruit. It is crisp, fresh and once again, a perfect partner to a wide range of foods.
Disgorged late 2015
The production of this rare, Vintage Pinot Port from carefully selected, late picked Pinot noir fruit was only possible because of exceptional ripening conditions in the Yarra Valley in 2003.

This delicious, fruity, fortified wine was made from special Brown Muscat grapes developed from varieties imported into Australia in the 1800’s. Amongst world Muscat clones, this one is unique. We have carefully selected vintages spanning over two decades. Meticulous cellaring at Panton Hill over the years along with intuitive blending has resulted in a wine with the depth, complexity and richness that reflects this time and care. Age is the major contributor, but youth plays its part. The freshness and fruit of younger vintages add their touch to this luscious prima donna full of raisin, toasted almond and toffee characters. This wine is excellent on its own, after dinner with a rich dessert or maybe coffee. It is hard to resist with a soft blue cheese. At the time of bottling, the average combined age of this Muscat was 20 years. Enjoy!

Originating in Sicily, Marsala was one of the most expensive and popular wines in Europe for more than a century. Poor copies led to a short era when it was relegated to the kitchen. Aromatica reflects strict new Italian standards, is made traditionally, and vintaged over a number of years at Panton Hill. The result is “Christmas Pudding in a Glass”, rich and dark, with a hint of butterscotch, vanilla and spice. If you have only tried modern copies, discover why the traditional style was so popular. Uses: Try it on ice cream or crushed ice in the summer. Make a real Tira Misu, Mediterranean Trifle or a marinade for berries (especially strawberries), peaches or melon. Up-grade numerous desserts, when guests that you'd like to impress, arrive unexpectedly!
