The Exhibitionist Merlot

The Exhibitionist Merlot is a part of the classic Character Series wines.

The Exhibitionist Merlot, Barossa Valley 2019
Once in a while you meet someone larger than life itself. Someone who has no fear and is not afraid to let you know just how great they think they are. Someone that, really deep down and against your better judgement, you can’t help but admire. You’re dealing with The Exhibitionist.

Viticulture
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.
Winemaking
Precise varietal expression and balance are what we seek to achieve and so picking time is of utmost importance. We pick just as flavours are approaching their peak rather than let them get over-ripe. We retain whole berries in the ferment for vibrancy and we press relatively early to avoid astringent tannins.
Tasting
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.

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

These Bordeaux varieties were processed individually with a portion fermented in open fermenters at temperatures up to 28°C. Control of tannin extraction and flavour preservation, were integral in the fermentation. Wine was pressed to Bordeaux style French oak, to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was blended from its components after maturation. The Merlot adds plush fruit and leafy characters as well as providing juicy acidity, in contrast to the Cabernet Sauvignon’s structured, but ripe tannin profile.

Seppeltsfield Grenache

Seppeltsfield Grenache

Seppeltsfield Grenache

Colour – Lively, medium crimson with pink hues
Aroma – Lifted, rosewater Turkish delight with a strawberry note
Palate – Sweet fruited on the palate with a dried herb savoury edge, talcy acidity and plum skin tannins

Food Pairing – Gamey meats such as lamb, duck and venison
Peak Drinking – Enjoy now – 2025

Sourced from the famous terraced vineyard at Seppeltsfield, Seppeltsfield Grenache is medium bodied and joven in style.

Hand crafted in the Barossa, our range is distinguished by two classifications – ‘Village’ and ‘Grounds’.
Our ‘Village’ range celebrates the revitalisation of the Seppeltsfield estate as a vibrant community of artisans – a modern day village – and is the foundation of our portfolio. The wine expressions within include classic Barossa varieties, to more emerging and exotic offerings. Our winemakers place particular specialisation in the reimagining of traditional ‘fortified’ red varieties – many central to the Barossa’s early emergence as grape growing region – now crafted into bright, modern wines of purity and elegance.
Our ‘Grounds’ releases are a study of the Barossa’s regional hero – Shiraz. Grown on single vineyard sites across the patchwork of the Barossa, our releases look to express the differences in terroirs of where our fruit is farmed.
As a unique signature of Seppeltsfield, the recent recommissioning of the 1888 Gravity Cellar sees our red varietals once again passed through its heritage-listed walls.The cellar, in complement to open fermentation, enables gentle colour and tannin extraction and preservation of aromatics – now a coveted modern day winemaking practice.

Y Series Shiraz Viognier

Y Series Shiraz Viognier -Luscious and exotic aromas of boysenberry, Turkish delight, vanilla bean and violets. The medium bodied palate is framed by flavours of sweet Turkish delight and violets, while soft tannins provide a perfect complement to the succulent finish, which shows the synergy between these two varieties.

The Shiraz grapes selected for this wine are those which display the most perfumed and aromatic profile that compliments the fragrance of Viognier. Everything is done to preserve this aroma: cool fermentation, the addition of Viognier (including as many whole berries as possible) and no oak ageing are just some of the processes that go into the making of this wine. These combine to produce a wine that is bright, aromatic and exotic

Enjoy with duck and pork terrine or a red lentil curry with sweet potato, spinach and chick peas.

The Shiraz Viognier depicts the horse, a symbol of our past when they were the transport and tractor of Yalumba. Nowadays, we enjoy a day at the races watching magnificent thoroughbreds cross the finish line carrying our colours and money!

Trentham Estate Shiraz

Trentham Estate Shiraz

THE GRAPES Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is thought to originate from the Rhone Valley in France and it continues to be the most predominant variety in this region. In 1831 James Busby collected cuttings from France and brought them to Australia. By the 1860’s Shiraz was established as one of the most important grape varieties in Australia and has developed an excellent reputation and is sought after worldwide.

THE VINTAGE ‘Late but great’ sums up the 2017 vintage. Good rain in spring, followed by mild weather and only short heat waves resulted in grapes ripening slowly on the vine. It was certainly an unusually late harvest but the wines are something to be proud of – well balanced fruit, plenty of flavour and distinct varietal aromas.

THE WINEMAKING Once harvested, the grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into the fermentation vessel. The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 days before pressing. After pressing, the wine was matured in a combination of new and aged French and American oak barrels. The wine was then blended and bottled in June 2017.

THE WINE Dark vibrant red in colour with lifted aromas of black cherry and chocolate. On the palate concentrated dark fruit flavours are complimented by subtle oak characters of mocha and spice. Full bodied and well-structured with firm ripe tannins providing balance and length.

THE FOOD Excellent match with any grilled red meat or a rich casserole.

ANALYSIS Varietal: Shiraz Alcohol: 14.5% Acid: 6.4 g/l pH: 3.51 Sweetness: Dry

d'Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon

d'Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon

d’Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale, a fruity, seductive style with rich, dark fruits, cassis and appealing herbal notes.

This vineyard was planted in the 19th century, and received its nickname as it was the first in the region to be trained above knee height. Over the past four decades, Cabernet Sauvignon from the High Trellis vineyard has been released under the d’Arenberg label to consistent critical acclaim, and won the coveted Jimmy Watson trophy at the 1969 Melbourne Wine Show.

d’Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of great presence, loaded with classic Cabernet Sauvignon characters of cassis, plums, cedar, red capsicum and violets. Despite the depth and complexity of the fruit, the palate remains true to Cabernet form, providing a sleek mouthfeel framed by a long line of fine, chalky tannins. Powerful, aromatic, persistent and charming all at once. While this wine offers enough fruit to be enjoyed in youth, expect 5-8 further years of careful cellaring to enhance its overall quality and enjoyment.

This is quite a serious Cabernet for the price. Black olive, bay leaf and blackberry dominate the nose with loads of plum and black currant strewn across the palate. Great fruit intensity with masses of spice and tannin. This wine would be well matched to any lamb dish.

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to old American oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. This wine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.
