Joshua Cooper
It’s pretty rare these days - thanks to social media - that a set of wines actually lives up to the hype. The anticipation of scoring those sought-after rare bottles, or chasing down wines after a series of strong reviews and hoping they live up to expectations, is something a lot of us probably know all too well.

Enter Joshua Cooper’s new releases. A set of wines that year-in-year-out seem to receive more and more praise. And for good reason: they are bloody good.

Born into wine, the heir apparent to Cobaw Ridge and son of Alan and Nelly Cooper, Josh has had access to very good teachers and great fruit to play with. From his first vintage, a single barrel of fruit sourced from his parent’s estate in 2012, to the current evolution where he produces site driven wines that range from the serious to the more ethereal styles, Josh has gone from strength to strength.

Josh’s wines are right at the top of the tree when it comes to producers in the Macedon Ranges. His ability to capture the best a site has to offer each vintage, unaltered and pure, is simply magical. These are the kind of wines we love - modern, fresh and vibrant and breaking away from the conventions of old.

As with all good things there isn’t a lot to go around - 6 bottles of each wine are currently available, and we don’t expect to get more. Don’t let this be like that time in high school where you didn’t make the move... Do the right thing and scoop a Coop here.
Manon is the label for Tim Webber and Monique Millton, farmed from their high altitude vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Tim and Mon have a strong belief in working with nature, and have implemented a number of different programs to support this. Everything in the vineyard is done by hand, following biodynamic principles, they have begun to gradually remove introduced flora, and replant with native vegetation, as well as encouraging native animals, such as kangaroos, who keep the grasses under control, but don't damage the soils through compaction.

A similar philosophy is utilised in the winery, with everything carried out slowly and without any additions. Bunches are harvested by hand, carefully sorted and then allowed to ferment naturally, with indigenous yeasts. Left to settle over the winter months, the wines are finally bottled unfined and unfiltered - a pure expression of their site and fruit. Get back to nature with Manon here.
