New wines-New new new

Released at our open house weekend – end of August.

  

2018 Riesling  - Now available
 Clare Valley – Watervale
The Rieslings have been consistently winning awards ever since we started getting the grapes from the Honey’s Watervale vineyard in 2012.
Watervale in the Clare Valley is known as the top locality in the top region for Rieslings – taste this one to find out why. Citrus/mineral characters. 
Another top Riesling. No medals yet? Be patient, will ya – it’s only just in the bottle!
 

  

2018 Pinot Gris - Now available
 Adelaide Hills

We made one already, you liked it a lot – well, you bought loads, so presumably you liked it.  Winemaker Damo is impressed with 2018 vintage. 
A white – don’t be confused by ‘Pinot’ – medium weight – if you can say that of a white. i.e. not as fresh and sharp as a Riesling, not as rich, say, a Chardonnay. But of course highly drinkable. Pear and apple-y flavours. Good with fish, Mediterranean, North African dishes. 

 

  

2018 Rosé  - Now available
 McLaren Vale

Grenache ?, Shiraz ? We never know the blend until the last minute when winemaker Damo decides. But we anticipate mostly Grenache, light in colour, dry and drinkable. 
A great lunchtime wine (why do we say that? - A great anytime wine – drink at breakfast if you like). But drink nicely chilled.

  

  

2017 G S M   - Now available
 McLaren Vale

Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre but at going to print we still don’t know % – we hope to know when we print the labels.
It’s popular – of course it is – not much left of the previous. Originally from the Southern Rhone Valley – probably one of those brilliant accidents a few centuries ago; warmer vineyards seem to suit it and it has become a signature wine of McLaren Vale.
Drink it fresh and it cellars well, too.

  

  

 2017 Reserve Shiraz - Now available
 Padthaway

Geographically not so far from Wrattonbully but widely different in terroir and flavours.
Careful artisanesque ageing in French and American oak by winemaker and cellarmaster Damo has given us a spicy wine with a soft finish and ‘flavours of caramel and butterscotch’.
Drink now, cellar for up to 5 years, maybe longer if you keep a careful eye on it.

Great news - great new wines!
