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.

Stump Jump Riesling/Marsanne/Sauvignon

Stump Jump Riesling/Marsanne/Sauvignon

This is a fresh, lively medium dry white wine on the palate and already shows a lovely viscous character, then the nuttiness of the Marsanne, while the finish is dominated by the slight talc and sweetness of the Sauvignon Blanc. These flavours are balanced by integrated acidity that doesn’t interfere with the fruit or flavours.

All of the varieties in this blend shine through and contribute to this complex and well-built wine. Lifted fresh cut grass and snap pea aromatics hint at Sauvignon Blanc with lemon and lime sherbet from the Riesling exploding from the glass. The Rhone varieties play lightly on the nose with tropical flowers, fresh pineapple, dry hay, and candied ginger peeking through. The palate shows red apple skins, ripe pear, and white peach with some pithy grapefruit texture, all balanced by some nutty creamy notes. A welcoming hint of the candied ginger returns and lingers on a long, fresh, and vibrant finish. The wine begins with loads of fruit which carries through the palate to a long satisfying finish held tightly poised by a fine and long acid line. This is a seriously enjoyable wine and is the perfect aperitif or accompaniment to summer meals.

The 2016 Vintage started a few days earlier than ever before due to the dry conditions, but relieving rains arrived in late January/ early February, reducing stress for the final stages of ripening. The earlier harvested fruit achieved fruit ripeness at relatively low Baumes due to the rain event. These wines are bright, spicy and vibrant with a lovely long acid and elegance. As vintage progressed the concentration grew and the colour intensified, resulting in more weighty wines without overripe characters.

Yalumba Samuels Collection Chardonnay

Yalumba Samuels Collection Chardonnay

Yalumba Samuels Collection Chardonnay

This fresh, zesty and textural style of Chardonnay is sourced from a family estate vineyard high in the Eden Valley, located 545 metres above sea level.

With 170 years of unbroken independence, Yalumba continues
to make wine at its founder’s home estate under direction of
the same family today. Samuel’s Collection honours Yalumba’s
founder Samuel Smith, his spirit of independence and
conviction to invest in the land and make great wine.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS
A wet winter in Eden Valley set the vines up for a healthy start to the
growing season. Spring was drier than average so canopy growth began
rapidly. Summer was warm and dry but sugar accumulation was much
slower than usual which resulted in wines with excellent fruit flavours.
Nights in the Eden Valley remained cool throughout the harvest period,
which helped to retain fresh fruit flavours and good levels of natural
acidity.
VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING
Vineyard parcels were selected and batched together for harvest and
fermentation according to flavour profile and ripeness. 52% of the
blend was fermented in French oak barriques coopered in-house at
Yalumba. The remainder of the blend was fermented in stainless steel.
All of the fermentation was conducted by natural wild yeast adding an
extra layer of complexity and texture to the wine and complementing
its zesty citrus flavours. After the completion of fermentation, extended
lees contact and regular bâtonnage was continued for 7 months before
selection of the final blend.
TASTING NOTES
Very pale green gold in colour. Fresh aromas of grapefruit zest and
lemon curd with underlying notes of citrus blossom and hints of stone
fruit. The palate is zesty and textural with a refreshing citrus and
grapefruit acid drive.
Enjoy with chicken and leek risotto or a vegan leek and mushroom pie,
on a bed of mash and steamed greens.

Bethany Semillon.

Bethany Semillon

Bethany Semillon

From one of the small family-owned iconic brands of the Barossa, who have evolved the traditionally rich, oaked style of Semillon into a brighter, fresher interpretation.
 
In the glass: Pale lemon.
On the nose: Youthful lift of ripe citrus with touches of straw and talc.
On the palate: A nicely balanced expression of Barossa Valley Semillon that’s clean, lemony and quite intense. It features a vibrant, juicy core of appealing fruit flavours and crisp, citrussy acidity.

With some of the oldest vines in the Barossa, Bethany Wines has special place in the region’s winemaking story.

Johann Gottlob Schrapel and his family arrived from Silesia on the George Washington in 1844. This was just eight years after South Australia was settled. Like many Silesian migrants, they travelled by ox cart to Bethany (Bethanien), and established the Barossa’s first settlement.

Johann planted the first vineyard in 1852 from cuttings carried from Europe. He built a wine cellar and had reputation as a winemaker. Despite this our family were grape growers for the next four generations.

In 1981, fifth generation brothers Robert and Geoff established Bethany Wines. They built a winery in the quarry where the early pioneers had hewn stone for their homes. They crushed 2 tonnes of Shiraz and Riesling, launching the next chapter of the Schrapel wine story.

The early 1980s were tough for Barossa grape growers. A glut followed a red wine boom and grape prices fell below production cost. The State Government wanted growers to pull out old Shiraz and Grenache vines. They encouraged growers to plant new varieties or leave the industry.

Fortunately, the brothers chose to establish a tradition of winemaking from this undervalued yet irreplaceable resource of old vineyards.

Rolf Binder EV Riesling

Rolf Binder EV Riesling

An outstanding Eden Valley Riesling from Christa Deans, known worldwide for her expertise with this varietal.
As a young wine, this 2019 Riesling is delightfully aromatic, displaying delicate rose floral and musk aromas on the nose. It has a good acidity with vibrant lemon/lime citrus and Fuji apple flavours that linger well on the palate.

Vintage conditions
Wines from the Barossa and Eden Valley’s 2019 vintage will be of very high quality but of limited supply. With a very dry winter and spring; frost events in September and November disrupted bud burst and flowering; hot, dry conditions in January and February also contributed to 2019 being recorded as the lowest-yielding Barossa harvest of the past decade.
Vinification details
The four vineyard blocks were harvested from the 12th to 22nd March and the batches of fruit were processed and fermented seperately in the winery. The resulting wines were blended together and then bottled the first week of July.

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.
