Keith Tulloch Shiraz

Keith Tulloch Shiraz

Keith Tulloch Shiraz – A Rhone Valley style, with fully ripe Shiraz characters of blood plum and ripe black cherry fruit balanced with the exotic Viognier aromas of citrus blossom and rose petal. Married together these varieties produce a palate with richer aromatic charm, warm briar berry spice and a velvety medium-bodied balance. With a rich, ripe black-fruit softness on entry, and smooth roundness and chocolatey softness onto the finish. Adding to the mix is the finely integrated weave of supple oak, and a delicate floral hint of violets and rose-petal resulting in a beautifully complete blend. 5% Viognier.

Shaw + Smith Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Shaw + Smith Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Shaw + Smith Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc – A benchmark wine for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. The Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc is unwooded to maximise its varietal character. The aroma shows restrained Sauvignon grassiness coupled with riper fruit characters. The palate is young and lively with attractive varietal flavours and refreshing acidity. A lean yet flavoursome wine.

A great aperitif or serve with seafood
Best drinking within two years
Ideal serving temperature: 6-8°C
Produced using sustainable practices

Typically it shows a pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness. 2018 was a standout year. The growing season weather behaved well overall, giving us well-balanced acidity and good flavour development in the pink grapefuit, lavender spectrum.

From our estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers. Hand picked. Cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness. Outstanding quality from a growing season that threatened, at times, to be tricky. After some heat in January, the moderate, dry and sunny months of February and March delivered beautifully balanced fruit. Crop levels were slightly below average, enhancing flavour and intensity.

Rated 96 points by James Halliday.

Shaw + Smith’s Balhannah Vineyard (35 hectares of vineyard) is planted predominantly to Sauvignon Blanc and close-planted Shiraz on property surrounding the winery at 340 – 380m elevation. The soil is free draining sandy loam over red clay with underlying quartzite and shale, with varying amounts of ironstone pebbles.

Decanter says “From high elevation vineyards, where yields are kept down and the grapes are hand-picked. This features crisply-scented lemon and bell pepper aromas with a hint of apricot. It’s really well balanced in the mouth, the succulent but saline citrus fruit backed up by richer hints of stone fruit and tangerine, alongside a layer of wafting herbs. Very elegant. “

Katnook Founder’s Block wines are named in honour of the original land holding of John Riddoch, the founder of Coonawarra.

The Founder’s Block range is styled for everyday enjoyment, inviting a modern generation of wine consumers to explore the pleasures of Coonawarra wine. The wines are grounded in the past but genuinely focused on the present. They are honest, fruit driven, harmonious and shine with pure Coonawarra character.

Katnook’s rich history stretches back to 1896, when Coonawarra’s first vintage was crafted in our Woolshed by entrepreneurial wine pioneer, John Riddoch – who immigrated from Scotland. He recognised the enormous potential of the maritime climate and unique terra rossa soils which now define Coonawarra wine styles.
But it all began even earlier. In 1861, Riddoch arrived in Coonawarra, after successfully operating a trading post in the goldfields. He purchased vast parcels of land over the years and was impressed with the remarkable rate of growth of fruit trees and vines. In 1867 John commissioned the building of his ‘Woolshed’ which still operates as Katnook’s barrel room today. Determined to encourage closer settlement in the southeast, in 1890 Riddoch formed the Coonawarra Fruit Colony, established its administration headquarters at ‘Katnook’ and sold off his land in 10 acre blocks. It was here at ‘Katnook’ that the Coonawarra wine region was born.
Riddoch planted 140 acres of vines and his first vintage in 1895 was a modest event in a neighbouring nursery shed. However, his second, with a much greater volume of fruit and attended to by qualified winemaker William Salter was made in the woolshed at ‘Katnook’ in 1896. By all accounts this second vintage gave an indication of the outstanding quality that was to come.

Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

.Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

The Great Escape Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills 2015
The Great Escape is our benchmark, cool climate Chardonnay produced from fruit grown in elevated vineyard sites which allow for a long ripening period which helps to maintain the natural sugar and acid balance of the grape. With moderate alcohol, focussed, crisp citrus fruit and a mouthwatering finish, this is an accomplished, truly modern style of this noble variety.

Vintage Conditions

Another dry season, no doubt influenced by El Niño, saw McLaren Vale and the Barossa have a very early, condensed harvest but up in the Hills, it was almost the perfect season. Much improved fruit set led to a healthy crop load wth even bunches that ripened gradually through February’s perfect conditions. Looking to retain natural acidity and energy in the wine, we hand-picked in two vineyards over the course of 10 days with the end result being some of the most pristine fruit we have witnessed.

Winemaking

As with all of our wines, the winemaking process is a gentle one with the intention of preserving the natural flavours of the wine while at the same time building layers of texture.

Fruit is picked in the cool of the early morning and goes directly to press where the free run juice is run off to tank to settle. We retain a relatively high level of solids in the ferment – half of which is done in tank with regular movement of lees and half is done in used French hogsheads with regular “battonage” of the lees to build flavour and texture. We do not encourage malolactic as we want to pre

H&V Eden Valley Riesling

H&V Eden Valley Riesling

H&V Eden Valley Riesling

Hill & Valley showcase the great diversity of the regions surrounding the winery. From the cooler Adelaide Hills to the elevated Eden Valley vineyards to those situated on the Barossa Valley floor, these ancient soils provide the base for great wines that speak of their origins.

Sourced from William Hurn’s vineyard in the northern Eden Valley, this vineyard is a star performer amongst the Peter Lehmann Wines’ growers, with fruit often being selected for our coveted flagship Wigan Riesling. The Hill & Valley Riesling is a classic example of a Peter Lehmann white wine, showing refined fruit purity and the hallmark minerality, typical of the Eden Valley. It can be enjoyed fresh in its youth or can be aged with confidence to develop the mature bottle complexity expected of a top flight Riesling from this famed sub-region.

Serve lightly chilled. It is a perfect aperitif and the ideal wine with fresh oysters, shellfish or pan-fried white fish.

Barossa is one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers, relatively low rainfall and low humidity, providing perfect conditions for growing grapes. The lower Barossa floor is drier, warmer and is ideally suited to growing iconic full bodied Shiraz. The higher altitude Eden Valley region has a cooler climate with abundant winter rainfall. The soil in Eden Valley is rocky and acidic, with shallow rock and shale that creates world class Rieslings.
Peter Lehmann Wines works collaboratively with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the region, many of whom have been involved with the Peter Lehmann story for decades. Through these strong bonds and generations of working with the region’s finest grape-growers, Peter Lehmann Wines continues to craft a range of premium wines that speak of their origins.
