The Musician Cabernet Shiraz

The Musician Cabernet Shiraz

The Musician Cabernet Shiraz, a great blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% shiraz. A great blend of two typical Australian red grapes. Soft elegant and silky.

Using the same fabulous fruit that goes into the much revered Majella Cabernets and Shiraz, Musician is younger, more fruit driven version using a little less new oak. Very much in the mould of it’s big brothers with crisp, blackcurrant, eucalypt and mint on the nose followed by a huge whack of juicy, savoury fruit on the palate. Vibrant, unmistakably Coonawarra to smell and taste although it is a light style of red showing fresh berry and spice with a soft finish.

Coonawarra lies only 60 miles inland, exposed to a maritime climate, with dry and moderately cool summers. Persistent cloud cover generally moderates the ripening period temperatures. The ‘Terra Rossa’ of Coonawarra is Australia’s most famous soil, renowned for its affinity with Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

Primary fermentation was in 10 tonne stainless steel static fermenters pumped over twice daily and 20 tonne rotory fermenters, with some parcels finished in new and second use French oak hogsheads.

Great with BBQ’s, pizza and red meat.

The Musician Cabernet Shiraz is pure Coonawarra at a bargain price – awesome!

Merlot The Exhibitionist

Merlot The Exhibitionist

Merlot The Exhibitionist by One Chain Vineyards, part of the classic Character Series wines by this well known winery.

There`s no holding back here, not much decorum to mention but what this wine lacks in modesty, it more than makes up for in enjoyment. Flirting outrageously with your taste buds, The Exhibitionist is a one wine drama with a fruit filled plot and a memorably silky denouement. Extravagantly fruity, full of character with a crowd pleasing finish. Merlot The Exhibitionist is full of rich plum and damson fruit on the nose. Oak used is unobtrusive on the palate which is dominated by rich red berry flavours while also presenting subtle earthy nuances. The wine is elegant and silky with a long finish. 

The Character Series has a range of beautifully produced and packaged wines, benefitting from ultra premium quality fruit sourced from the Barrossa. Each wine has great varietal definition coupled with signature vibrancy and freshness. These are wines that are immediately pleasing, yet authentic expression of the variety and place. 

The Barossa Valley is rightly famed for its red wine production. On the Southern reaches of the region, the climate has more similarities with the Adelaide Hills than the valley floor. Here, varieties such as Merlot thrive in the slightly cooler temperatures. Planted on rich red loams with quartz and ironstone nuggets dotted amongst the vines which lend a structure and minerality to the wines produced.

The winemaking technique is to do as little as possible in the winery- great wine is made in the vineyard. Keeping yields low but balanced, ensuring just the right fruit exposure and healthy canopies ensures high quality fruit. On receival at the winery, the fruit is very gently crushed before a cold soak for 2-3 days to extract aroma and colour before harsher tannins. Fermentation and storage on oak for 10 months ensure that the wines have a well integrated, subtle oak seasoning that allows the variety to truly express itself.

Merlot The Exhibitionist is great with Lamb couscous or grilled lamb chops, Duck confit or Asian style served in a plum sauce.

Yalumba Eden Valley Rousanne

Yalumba Eden Valley Rousanne

Yalumba Eden Valley Rousanne – A great white wine from Eden Valley

Since starting work with Viognier in the 1980s the Yalumba winemaking team has been keen to work with Roussanne, the other perfumed and exotic variety originating in the northern Rhône. Following the sucess of Viognier and other varieties of Rhône origin in the Barossa, this region was the natural place to plant. The result is this new wine varietal.

This wine is straw green in colour, showing aromas that are reminiscent of walking through wild flowers; camomile, lavender, wild rose and the suggestion of a nearby bee hive. The palate is silky yet defined; white fleshed peach, vanilla custard and cumquat layered over fresh grapefruit acidity and a fine almond meal texture with lingering hints of honey and fresh bees wax.

The growing season for vintage 2015 started well, with a lovely season break and good rainfall. The following above average winter rains filled the soils and dams. August and then spring were drier and warmer than average, meaning the vines got away to a healthy start. During the second week of January good rains fell, which kept the vines healthy and grapes ripening. This created perfect ripening conditions, flavours and natural acids.

Enjoy Yalumba Eden Valley Rousanne with a wild mushroom and thyme risotto
