Allegory Shiraz

Allegory Shiraz – The Allegory Shiraz is an opulent, full-bodied wine with excellent concentrated fruit flavours and soft approachable palate. It will drink well now and will develop complex aging characters of rich earth, leather and forest floor over the next 5 years.

Shiraz has distinct identities in its Australian home – the wines of Barossa, McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley, Great Southern and Margaret River all express different stories. This  Shiraz shows the Southwestern version of the grape in classic, juicy style – fruit-forward, plush, and downright delicious!

This shiraz displays all the strengths and beneficial flavour characteristics common to the regions which comprise the blend. Vibrant, ripe and alluring raspberry, cherry and blackberry aromas are beautifully complemented by subtle vanilla and baking spice accents, and all these elements flow through to the palate where they mingle with gentle mocha and cinnamon notes. The mouthfeel is silky soft yet with sufficient tannin grip to retain flavour on the mid-palate and provide a pleasant lingering aftertaste of pure Shiraz satisfaction.

Enjoy now or keep for the next five years.

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

INSPIRED BY OUR SURROUNDINGS WE REFLECT ON THE ESSENTIAL NATURE OF THE MURRAY DARLING TO CREATE WINES OF DISTINCTION AND SUSTAINABILITY.

THE GRAPES Pinot Noir makes some of the most famous wines in the world, but is a challenging variety; temperamental in the vineyard and needs nurturing in the winery. Picked from our best vineyard, the grapes ripened slowly and evenly to result in great fruit quality.

THE VINTAGE Warm, dry weather during the 2018 harvest restricted our crop levels and helped to produce exceptional fruit quality with plenty of aromatics and flavour. Lower rain levels during the growing season translated into smaller berries packing their punch, making our winemakers very happy!

THE WINEMAKING The grapes were de-stemmed and pumped through a chiller into the fermentation vessel at 5⁰C and cold soaked for 36 hours before yeast was added. Cold soaking is a winemaking technique used to increase the red berry characters in the wine. After the addition of yeast, the wine was fermented on skins for 5 days before pressing out. A portion of the wine was matured in French oak before blending and bottling.

THE WINE Cherry red with plum and spice aromas, berry fruit flavours with subtle French oak and a soft silky finish.

THE FOOD An excellent choice with an antipasto plate, light tomato-based pasta and almost any duck dish.

ANALYSIS Varietal: Pinot Noir Alcohol: 14.0% Acid: 6.1 g/l pH: 3.38 Sweetness: Dry

Rolf Binder Cabernet Sauvignon

Rolf Binder Cabernet Sauvignon

Fruit is sourced from a single estate vineyard in an area known for adding depth and weight to a wine.
A rich deep purple colour. Enticing aromas of sweet blackcurrants, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. As the wine opens, aromas of black berry fruits and cassis, with a background hint of sweet oak, fill the nose. The palate is ripe and concentrated with a wall of very fine, drying tannins. The hallmark varietal black berry fruits fill the mouth evenly, with hints of subtle herb notes of clove and tomato leaf, adding interest and complexity. Shows long persistence of flavour.

Vintage conditions
The 2017 vintage wrapped-up four to six weeks later than the ‘new normal’ of the past decade, the growing season started after a long wet winter and one of the wettest Septembers on record.
Vinification details
Grapes were harvested late March and then fermented in open fermenters. elected Bordeaux-style yeasts were then added. The juice was pumped over twice daily, resulting in maximum flavour, colour and tannin extraction with both the warm ferment and pumping over stabilising tannin structure. The wine was aged for 18 months in 15% new French oak, with the remainder a combination of shaven and three year old French and American oak.

Christa and Rolf form the heart of Rolf Binder wines, continuing a family wine-making tradition that spans nearly 60 years. Their parents arrived in Australia in 1950 – just two amongst the many post-war immigrants from Europe – and met a grape grower in the Barossa while working to help pay for their assisted passage. From such unlikely beginnings, a passion for the Barossa was born, a winery was purchased and a new life began. They soon came to appreciate the riches of the Barossa, the old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache, and were at the forefront of many old vine varietal blends. Now Christa and Rolf are taking the winery into the 21st century, with Rolf forging a world-wide reputation for his red wines while Christa takes the plaudits for her white wines.

The wetlands of the Murray Darling Region are integral to maintaining the health of the unique, yet fragile ecosystems of South Eastern Inland Australia. Trentham Estate’s ‘River Retreat’ range of wines is based on an initiative dedicated to raising awareness of these wetlands. Each purchase of the River Retreat label results in a donation to the La Trobe University Foundation, Mildura.

Trentham Estate is proud to announce its continued commitment to water conservation and wetland restoration, through a new partnership with the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group Ltd.

Trentham Estate has long strived to provide support to localised Murray Darling research activities for sustainable water supply, quality and capacity. With the recent closure of the Lower Basin Laboratory in Mildura, it has looked to another respected organisation to support during a time of much strain on the local environment. For over 20 years, the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group Ltd has worked on wetlands throughout the Murray-Darling Basin, restoring and improving the management of wetlands throughout the catchment, of the Murray-Darling Basin.

Trentham Estate’s River Retreat label, now vegan friendly, will proudly continue Trentham’s dedication to corporate responsibility – whereby every bottle purchased of River Retreat wine will result in a donation towards the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group.

With many great projects currently underway in the far-west region of NSW, the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group will benefit greatly from these ongoing funds.

“We are thrilled to be able to contribute to the restoration of our precious river system and we are confident that the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group will make a real difference within the river region.” says winemaker Anthony Murphy.

“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change” – Heraclitus of Ephesus

Winemaker: Ben Glaetzer Region: Langhorne Creek Soil: Sandy loam Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 74% Shiraz 24% Lagrein 2% Tasting notes: Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz give this wine a rich, savoury character and good structure. A splash of Lagrein contributes spice & tannin. The tightness and structure of the Lagrein, pulls the wine together and makes this blend a perfect match with food. Vinification: Each individual variety was fermented on skins for 5 days before pressing. Maturation in 2 and 3-year-old oak barrels. All ferments were kept cool to enhance the aromatics and to keep the tannins soft.

2015 Vintage: Good winter rainfall offered cover crops for a moistureretaining mulch throughout the dry spring and summer. The lack of rainfall over the growing period led to lower yields. Summer saw mostly cool temperatures and an early vintage with most fruit off by early April. The Langhorne Creek wine region benefits from cooling afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina and this season was no exception. The welcome breezes helped keep overnight temperatures down, enabling fruit to maintain natural acidity.

Alc/Vol: 14.5% Maturation vessel: 100% oak Oak type: French & American Age of barrels: 2-3 years Time in barrel: 12 months Age of vines: 15-20 years
