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.

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.

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

Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier

Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier

Yalumba has pioneered the growing and making of Viognier in Australia since 1980. We have over 30 years of viticultural and winemaking experience working with this alluring variety.

Pure aromas are reminiscent of fresh apricots, lifted ginger, saffron and fresh white flowers. The palate is long, rich and luscious, with intense and expressive stone fruit flavours and hints of orange peel, finishing with an alluring freshness. This wine will continue to grow and develop in the bottle, firstly showing enhanced apricots and spice, then after a couple of years developing honey flavours and toast complexity. A wonderful food wine that complements spiced dishes. Try it with Moroccan tajine and spiced cous cous or pork dumplings with ginger and chilli oil dipping sauce.

170 years ago, a plan was put in motion. Rooted in history and rich tales of perseverance, Samuel’s Collection celebrates Yalumba’s founder Samuel Smith, his spirit of embracing provenance and giving back to the land.
The Eden Valley Viognier is our pure expression of the variety. It’s full of flavour and characters, but finishes with a freshness.

Yalumba has been developing its own sustainable viticulture program since the mid 1990s. This starts in the vineyard and extends to every aspect of winemaking, production, packaging and distribution. Many awards and milestones have resulted due to sustainability now being at our core. All Yalumba wines were announced vegetarian and vegan friendly as of 2011. Yalumba is the first wine company in the world to receive the Climate Protection Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency, 2007. These benefits are most obvious in your wine glass.
“Apart from economic viability and social equity, for us, sustainability is about biodiversity in our vineyards,” says Winemaker Louisa Rose. “To encourage it, we’ve done a number of things: we’ve reduced the amount of chemicals we use, incorporated an integrated pest management system, and encouraged biodiversity of vegetation in our vineyards”. All in the name of better winemaking.

Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier – a great Aussie wine

Keith Tulloch Semillon

Keith Tulloch Semillon – Bright and lifted aromas of lemon and lime on the nose – hallmarks of this low-yielding vineyard. this Semillon has very delicate mouth-feel and litheness, yet shows astoundingly bright lime-fruit and green-melon presence and persistence.

Aromas are zesty and intense, brimming with lemonade, lemongrass, ripe lime and soft orange grapefruit. Delicate floral hints of green-clover flower build nuanced complexity.
