The Courtesan Riesling

The Courtesan Riesling is one of the Character Series wines from Wild and Wilder

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

The Courtesan Riesling, Clare Valley 2019
The Courtesan is the epitome of good breeding. Wonderful posture, a delicacy of frame and a fragrance to haunt the most sated of olfactory functions. Behind closed doors though, the Courtesan shocks with its racy charms, flirting outrageously with “come-drink-me” eyes. Don’t be fooled, The Courtesan means business.

Winemaking
Vinification, as one might expect with good fruit, is very simple. The grapes are picked in the cool of the morning and rapidly transported to the winery where they are lightly crushed and sent to press. For the Courtesan, we retain only the purest, free-run juice. The wine is fermented at a cool temperature to retain fruit profile and the finished wine is aged on its lees for 2-3 months before bottling.

Capturing all the mouthwatering lime and elderflower character one expects from great Riesling, the Courtesan has a voluptuous palate hinting at grapefruit, ripe melon and quince.

Suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans, 

The Courtesan is truly in the royal family of wines.

Chapel Hill Winery in McLaren Vale was built on the site of the Seaview Chapel and school house. The 1865 ironstone Chapel still proudly stands today and is an integral feature of the tasting room. Planting of the vineyard commenced in 1972 and the first vintage was in 1975. Perched on the edge of the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge, shallow rocky soils are a feature with sweeping views back over McLaren Vale and Gulf St Vincent.

White winemaking is about instinctive vineyard management and carefully monitoring the ripening process to ensure that we retain and showcase the delicious fruit flavours in the finished wines.
The white winemaking commences with slow and gentle pressing to separate the juice from the skins and seeds. The free run juice and very gentle pressing portions are combined and separated from the remaining pressing fraction. Only the free run component is used in our white winemaking as it is aromatic and delicate, with more vibrant acidity.
The free run is cold settled, allowing the juice to clarify naturally, preserving the precious aromatics and freshness. This juice is then inoculated with neutral yeasts, selected to respect the site and varietal characteristics.
When the ferment is completed, the wine continues to be stored on yeast lees, which encourages additional mouthfeel and texture.
Once the white wines have matured they are sent to bottle with only minimal additions and without the use of any fining agents. As a result of this winemaking, all of our white wines, with the exception of the Pinot Grigio, are suitable for vegans.

Heartland Wine Cabernet Sauvignon

Heartland Wine Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet has a very long history in Langhorne Creek and is one of the original red varietals that established the region. The 2016 vintage displays a classic cassis aroma with supportive savoury notes. A well balanced palate showing ripe dark fruits enhanced by a silky textural finish.

Heartland Wine Cabernet Sauvignon

Heartland is the place between the vines that offers the best view of the gum trees.

Heartland creates smooth wines from our vineyards in the cool climate growing region of Langhorne Creek. This is one of Australia’s most ideal climates for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and has the oldest recorded Cabernet vines in the world.

Winemaker: Ben Glaetzer Region: Langhorne Creek Soil: Sandy loam Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes: 2016 will be a small and fleeting vintage for Heartland, but I expect we will sing its praises for years to come. The Cabernet Sauvignon is at its elegant best and the surpassing length of flavor is matched by the mouthfeel and layers of aroma that precede it.

Vinification: The fruit was crushed into 8 tonne open fermenters and left on skins to cold macerate for three days prior to fermentation. Fermentation occurred at or under 23°C with our Rhône isolate yeast. This helped to extract the skin tannin while maintaining aromatics. The wine underwent its malolactic transformation in oak, was then racked and returned to French and American oak for a 12-month maturation. 2016 Vintage: Ben reckons this might be the finest vintage he has ever seen from Langhorne Creek. Only time will tell. Harvest was more generous than the previous few years, with above average quantity and quality. Total degree days were up from the last three years, with wonderful ripeness levels recorded leading to amazing fruit intensity. This may supersede the 2012 vintage for overall quality and has led to a very happy winemaker.

Pimpala Road Chardonnay by Geoff Merrill

Pimpala Road Chardonnay 2015

THE NAME
“Our fun little on-premise exclusive label, Pimpala Road is the location of our home, the historic Mount Hurtle winery.” – Geoff Merrill

VINTAGE INFORMATION McLaren Vale had one of the earliest vintages on record this year, with mild weather playing an important role for the region; rainfall was lower than average and with dry conditions from early August meant supplementary irrigation was vital. With only a few sporadic hot days, the weather allowed natural acids with low pH levels to develop. Yields had fallen just below average, however this varied depending on variety. Overall 2015 was a successful vintage; we have excellent examples at the winery of all varieties made.

WINEMAKERS NOTES The colour is a mid to light straw with lime hues. The aroma is a lovely fresh blend of nectarine, honeydew melon, lime juice and hints of cucumber. The palate has an inviting roundness to it, adding depth and texture to the ripe fruit flavours. Subtle use if oak has added some fine creamy cashew notes to both the aroma and palate.

“Drink with crab and shallot pancakes, San Choy Bow, Salt and Pepper Squid and Asian deep fried fish.”

WINEMAKERS Geoff Merrill & Scott Heidrich

TECHNICAL DETAILS Variety: Chardonnay Oak Treatment: 10% is aged in seasoned French oak barrels for 10 months. Region: South Australia Harvest Date: March / April 2015 Alc: 13.5%, pH: 3.31, TA: 6.7 g/L, RS: 0.6 g/L

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 red, white and sparkling 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.
