Tasting Notes

2x Richmond Bridge Tasmanian Pinot Noir 2017

Lifted sweet red cherry and wild strawberry with hints of savoury spice. Ripe dark cherry and raspberry and strawberry all reveal themselves on the front palate. Lively dark clove and cinnamon spices add depth to the mid palate and also a hint of licorice gives further definition and length. The tannins are supple, fine and silky smooth offering mid palate richness and well-balanced acidity provides the back palate with a perfect kick.


1x Normans Old Vine McLaren Vale Grenache 2016

Bright ruby and cherry red with youthful purple hues. Mint and spicy wild cherry. A very vibrant Grenache with sweet mulberry fruit as well. Full bodied with intense flavours of cassis and plums, which are well complimented by traces of pepper and spice. This Grenache has a strong concentration of fruit flavour highlighted by a sweetness, which goes perfectly with the firm yet subtle tannins.


1x 1838 Reserve McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

Purple to crimson red around the edge. A fruit bomb in its infancy the nose exhibits dark fruit flavours of freshly cut plum and some blueberry while mocha, chocolate, licorice and subtle oak ensure a highly aromatic and voluptuous nose. The palate is quite velvety in texture, with amazing fruit concentration in its youth featuring plum, chocolate, licorice with a touch of spice, perfectly interwoven oak and the perfect level of fine grainy tannin give line and length. 


2x Limb Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017

Intense deep ruby red with purple hues. Plum, dark cherry, licorice with round voluptuous oak and chocolate all playing supporting roles. This wine illustrates exactly how I have been handcrafting premium red wine for my entire life, in the vineyard. The terror and microclimate of specific blocks produce something different year with the obvious characters of this vintage being plum, anise, black pepper and chocolate. The extended time in barrel and use of different aged oak mainly older allowed this flavour to infiltrate the wine without over powering it and to run seamlessly into the natural tannin structure of the wine.


2x The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

Deep black in colour. Bouquet filled with liquorice, blackberry and dark plum fruit with layers of fennel spice and Smokey oak. Full bodied fruit with a really plush texture. The fruit flavours of blackberry, dark plum all work within the framework, which is fleshy and opulent with a licorice character shining on the mid palate. Subtle hint of fennel and oak along with lovely spicy notes. Velvety smooth tannins which when allowed to open up and breathe illustrate the longevity possible with a long dark seductive finish which is all interwoven between a backbone of oak and tannin perfectly.


1x The Colonial Estate Explorateur Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017

Deep purple with red brick flash around edge. Blackberry fruits with hints of licorice, oak and aniseed. The palate is softly spoken and fruit driven initially with blackberries, plums and licorice notes giving your insight into what is ahead. An approachable mid palate, which is full-flavored, while the fine-grained tannins finish with complex notes of olives, cashew nuts and oak. An alluring finish, which is moreish and smooth, yet has great length.


2x Glen Eldon Kicking Back Barossa Cabernet Shiraz 2014

Opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Aromas of ripe blackcurrant and liquorice combine with hints of dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spicy black olive end notes. Medium to full bodied with good richness the palate features generously textured flavours of blackcurrant and liquorice over some dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spice. Sturdy yet fine grained tannins. Aftertaste of blackcurrant, liquorice, dark chocolate and spicy vanillin cedar.


1x The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Bright and opulent purple in colour. The bouquet is elegantly proportioned with obvious varietal characters of ripe blackcurrant fruit infused with mint, fresh herbs, earth and plum. Wonderful density and depth to the aromatics, which reveal really profound Cabernet Sauvignon character. Fruit driven highlighted by pure plum flavour which is a highlight of Cabernet Sauvignon this year. The intense varietal characters along with some spice ensure a powerful mid palate. Lively with a great core and backbone, the oak is well integrated and compliments but doesn’t dominate. Well-rounded smooth tannins make this one of the most Moorish Cabernet Sauvignon we have produced.

Technical

Richmond Bridge Tasmanian Pinot Noir 2017

The low yielding 2017 vintage resulted in great fruit concentration and in turn high quality wines were produced. Selected bataches of Pinot Noir from select vineyards were picked over a three-week period. All batches were destemmed and were wild fermented in small open top fermenters. Gentle plunging and pump over techniques, combined with warm fermentations, ensure bright freshly fruit characters. After pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in old French oak and stainless steel. 


Normans Old Vine McLaren Vale Grenache 2016

Fruit was picked at optimum ripeness then fermented at warm temperatures. Following fermentation, the wine was put into older, French barrels to add a very slight oak smoothness but to retain its fresh varietal fruit flavours.


1838 Reserve McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

Fruit was sourced from several well-known growers in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia from what was another great vintage in terms of quality although yields were down across the region. The different sites allowed us to pick the fruit over a extended period allowing each vineyard to develop differing characters to compliment each other and also allowed us at the winery to treat the parcels individually in small ferments with longer than usual skin contact, which is always ideal. The result is an outstanding wine with obvious time and care taken with it throughout the vinification process. This wine was fermented warm and received pump overs on a daily basis during fermentation. Aged in primarily old 2-3 year old oak to add another level of complexity without over powering the fruit. 


Limb Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017

Picking started in early March when I felt the colour and baume levels were at an optimum much later than has been the “norm” in recent times then the grapes were gently crushed and fermented in my small capacity open top fermenters for 7 days with plunging twice daily. The wine was then pressed and drained off into old American hogsheads’ for 12 months prior to bottling. This wine encapsulates Barossa Valley Shiraz the way it should be, an honest reflection of the vineyard where it was grown.


The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

The bulk of the vines are dry grown old vines, which are pruned severely and receive two runs of green harvesting finally producing one tonne to two tonnes per acre. Exile grapes are then hand picked and the grapes sorted. The wine is fermented in vats after extreme cold maceration. The wines have their malolactic in new French oak, and are thereafter in the same oak for 24 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration and then further aging in bottle.


The Colonial Estate Explorateur Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017

The vineyards that make up Explorateur are based in the northwestern Barossa Valley. This is a belt of land/terroir that runs from just to the northwest of Tanunda – Marananga, Greenock, Moppa, Ebenezer, and through to Stockwell, just north of Nuriootpa. Cropping levels are kept low to ensure fruit flavour is focus. The same equipment that is accorded to our more expensive wines is made available to Explorateur. Fermentation is French in approach for up to two thirds of the wine made; the rest is vinified in a more Australian way.


Glen Eldon Kicking Back Barossa Cabernet Shiraz 2014

As the label says a perfect wine to just sit back relax and enjoy with friends over a platter of smoked meats and smelly cheeses. The epitome of what we love doing at Glen Eldon. The uniquely Australian blend of Cabernet Shiraz and the perfect entry level introduction to Glen Eldon’s characterful smooth sumptuous reds. 


The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sourced from a small block in the Seppeltsfield region of the Barossa. The vines that make up Exile were pruned severely and as a result of this and minimal water they produce extremely small yields. Exile grapes are all hand picked and the grapes are selected in individual batches by winemaker and vigneron. The grapes are harvested then transported to the winery where they are de-stemmed and crushed individually to small static fermenters. Fermentation was brought on by the use of select yeast strains and the temperatures peaked at 28 degrees before chilling back to 20 degrees for the completion of fermentation. The fermenters were pumped over 3 times daily to ensure the perfect amount of colour and tannin was extracted from the skins. A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon was allowed to stay on skins for a week of additional maceration after the ferments were complete. The batches were then pressed into new French barrels where they under went malolatic fermentation and are then aged for 18 months before final barrel selection, blending and bottled with minimal filtration.
