Are You Game Shiraz

Are You Game Shiraz is youthful red in colour with some bright purple hues, this shiraz has aromas of plum, black and green pepper and subtle oak. The palate is elegantly structured and well-balanced, with notes of ripe plum, chocolate and spice – and a great length of flavour.

The Fowles Wine vineyards and winery are located in the dramatic granite landscape of Strathbogie Ranges region of Victoria, Australia.
Fowles Wine crafts some of Australia’s finest cool climate wines, winning many of Australia’s most prestigious wine medals and trophies. The Fowles Wine team is energetic and enterprising, continuing to break new ground by proudly taking the Strathbogie Ranges ‘message in a bottle’ to the world with some of Australia’s most exciting wines.

The fruit for this wine was harvested during the day. Fermented at around 26 ̊ C in high-tech stainless steel sweep-arm fermenters to maximise colour and preserve primary fruit flavours. We chose to use a combination of three different yeasts to ferment this wine because each one contributes its own unique attributes that build layers of complexity and interest in this wine.
This wine was matured for 12 months using new French and American oak.The progeny of a perfectly mild and dry spring, this shiraz was blended with a dash of viognier (4%) from the central Victoria region, Dookie, to give it a subtle apricot perfume lift.

Are You Game Shiraz goes perfectly with roast pork and crackling with all the trimmings and with with all manner of meaty morsels.

We love to source our food from the wild or grow it at home. Nothing beats the taste of food and wine as nature intended it – real:
pure, slow grown and full of flavour. So like us, why not keep it real and go wild with food and wine matching…

Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years.

Heartland Wine Stickleback Red

Heartland Wine Stickleback Red

A new vintage means a new blend for Stickleback Red. The Stickleback blend is chosen for optimum flavour and texture, with each variety bringing a unique character to the wine. Our aim as always is to satisfy that expectation of consistent quality for our friends.

“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

The Pugilist Cabernet Sauvignon

 The Pugilist Cabernet Sauvignon by Wild & Wilder using grapes grown in Langhorne Creek.

The Pugilist Cabernet Sauvignon, Langhorne Creek 2019
Sometimes you’ve got to stick up for yourself… Fight for what is right in this world and uphold some good old fashioned values. Of course, one must always retain ones manners and obey the rules just ask the Pugilist. He’s powerful, thick-skinned but well-bred and with the manners and sense of fair play of a true gent.

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 nose shows an array of perfumed characters such as violets, oregano & thyme, along with glacé cherry aromas. Sweet ripe cherry fruit dominates the front palate which then develops into a more savoury wine, showing earthiness, toasted spices and lovely dried herb characters.

 The Pugilist Cabernet Sauvignon  is great with roast beef or grilled sirloin.

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot

The Plantagenet’s were the first truly armigerous royal dynasty of England meaning they were entitled to strike and bear various coats of arms. The arms of this noble, later royal, family, Gules, three lions passant guardant, termed colloquially “the arms of England” were first adopted by King Richard the Lionheart (1189–1199), son of King Henry II of England (1154–1189), son of Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (1113/17–1151).
These Three Lions signified royalty, history, power and a code of conduct that was instantly recognized wherever they were displayed.
So too with this range of wines. They are from the oldest established winery in Great Southern – they are wines with power and provenance. The Three Lion coat of arms of Plantagenet Wines is a recognized symbol of quality and prestige.

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot – a good tight grain French oak with juicy acidity give a fine structural thread to the black plum, brambly fruit with a slight herbal edge. Medium palate weight and good clean acid on the finish balances this wine superbly

Three Lions Great Southern Cabernet Merlot is kept in French oak for 15 months and is best paired with Roast Beef with herbed potatoes

Plantagenet Wines embodies the best of the west with its distinctive wines of finesse and elegance. As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is celebrated for its rich heritage, its expressive wines and family-owned sensibility, making it one of the most trusted wine brands in the country.
The rich tapestry of the Plantagenet story begins in 1968, when English migrant Tony Smith envisaged great things for his land in Mount Barker. With his small inheritance, he bought a farm called Bouverie in the Plantagenet Shire and literally planted the seeds of the Plantagenet future – Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes bore the fruit of what would become some of the most highly awarded and sought after wines, both nationally and internationally. The fruit was picked in 1974 and the wines showed exciting potential, enough for Smith to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and get to work making tight and lean Shiraz with typical regional spiciness and full-bodied cabernet. Embracing the conditions of the Great Southern’s cool climate, Smith went on to plant further varieties, including Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The vineyards all benefit from their coastal proximity, enjoying abundant rainfall and cool twilight breezes from the neighbouring Southern Ocean.

Rolf Binder Hales Shiraz

Rolf Binder Hales Shiraz

This deep cherry red wine fills the glass with aromas reminiscent of sweet red berries. Dark cherries enhanced with liquorice, cassis, hints of vanilla and blueberries on the medium bodied palate. Ripe tannins and a complex acidity lend to the overall perception of a smooth, approachable red wine, with a nice persistence of flavour.

Vintage conditions
Things started well for 2015 with above average early winter rains that filled the soils and dams. Spring was drier and warmer than average, meaning the vines got away to a good healthy start. In the second week of January, a nice amount of rain fell, which kept vines healthy and grapes ripening. In fact the ripening conditions were perfect, and February did nothing to stop the ripening or hinder quality, being warm to hot during the day, cool at night and almost completely dry. March was also very dry and average in temperature with most of the vintage harvested before its end. 2015 could well go down as another really great Barossa Valley vintage.
Vinification details
The Shiraz for this wine was picked over a period of three weeks, coming from vineyards in the inner west and northern reaches of the Barossa. All batches were crushed as one, using traditional pump over or heading downboards during the fermentation. After pressing, the seperate free run juice and pressings were blended back together. Maturation was done in a majority of shaven American and French oak hogshead barrels.

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.
