Gemtree Winery, a prestigious, quality-oriented estate established in 1998 in South Australia's McLaren Vale. Mike Brown, chief winemaker, believes in working in close harmony with the estate’s viticulturalist, all the more feasible in this scenario as that role is filled by his wife Melissa! Premium shiraz fruit from vineyards has been farmed biodynamically since 2008 and the estate is ‘in conversion’ certified organic. The essence of Mike’s winemaking philosophy is to intervene as little as possible and therefore to make wines which are allowed to express their origins to maximum effect. Recognition has been swift to arrive: The wine was awarded 5 stars in James Halliday’s highly respected reference book on Australian wines in 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 . The Mount Hillary label wine is made from a private selection of grapes from the estate, in conjunction with Teresa Nobilo-Healy, granddaughter of pioneering winemaker Nikola Nobilo OBE. The sole aim of Mt Hillary is to hand craft premium parcels that are a true and honest reflection of pure regional, varietal and winemaker expression.available only in a small, 500-case lot, and offered exclusively to BBR in the UK.
