Help from the big island

Irvine MeslierIn my search for the full Champagne varietal pack, I managed to track down the wonderful Mr James Irvine from Eden Valley in South Australia who is, I believe, the only grower of Petit Meslier in the country.  Not only did he very kindly send me 2bts of his exceptional wines to try for myself, he has taken cuttings from his vineyard and, with the help of Nick Dry at the Yalumba nursery, has arranged to ship them down to Tas.  I cannot tell you how excited I am at the prospect of seeing  these rare cuttings alongside the others.  Thanks Yalumba and a massive thanks to Jim Irvine who is a true icon of Australian wine.  Go and check him out here to see for yourself.
