A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to visit Steve and Fiona Pannell at their spectacular Koomilya vineyard in McLaren Vale for the first glimpse at the new 2015 releases. Rubbing elbows with Australian wine royalty, we took a walk through the terraced vineyards, wine glass in hand, while Steve talked us through why he loves the place so much - a place he qualifies as mystical, curious and where he can find peace. It's also a place with a full and rich history where Steve earned his first Jimmy Watson Trophy while at Hardy's and, after years of nurturing, still produces exceptional wines - expressive, brooding, powerful and fragrant, but poised, graceful and effortless. This week we are honoured to be able to share Steve and Fiona's "babies" with you, including the entrancing JC Block. Enjoy!

One of the five founding wineries of Margaret River in Western Australia, Leeuwin Estate has built a reputation for excellence over many years. The annual release of their Art Series chardonnay is arguably the most anticipated white wine release in the country, and while cabernet takes a humble seat alongside chardonnay at Leeuwin, it too is a perennial contender for the region's finest.
The 2015 vintage in Margaret River delivered a magnificent encore to Leeuwin Estate's outstanding 2014 releases. Quality is excellent across the board, with this year's Art Series chardonnay providing a superb sparring partner to last year's much lauded offering, and one which will no doubt provide some entertaining side-by-side tasting over the next decade or so. The 2013 'Prelude' and 2014 'Art Series' cabernet duo are in superb form too and mark a continued commitment to quality on the red side of the equation at Leeuwin. This is a vintage that will see these wines blossom in the cellar.
