Stump Jump Riesling/Marsanne/Sauvignon

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.

Stump Jump Riesling/Marsanne/Sauvignon – Another great wine from the d’Arenberg dynasty

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay – This is a tight, bright, focused wine with a finer nucleus of fruit than usual, and this texture, balance and fine oak will therefore take longer in the bottle to integrate and develop. These characters open out with breathing to reveal the typical barrel ferment funkiness – peach, melon and passionfruit plus hints of smoky vanilla oak – combining in a harmonious Burgundy-like balance.

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay has a fine bright colour showing exceptional green hue and freshness. Aromatically, the notes are vibrant with great fruit drive, white fig perfumes mix with nectarine, pineapple and yellow melon. Beautiful elements of deluxe French oak support and deepen the bouquet, with delicate vanilla spiciness adding warmth and softness.
The palate glides with the wonderful harmony of primary and malolactic barrel fermentation; the mouth feel is yoghurt-like and glossy, with superb texture and persistence. Melon and fig flavours predominate, yet nectarine and pineapple brightness provides lift and focus onto a long finish.
Drink: Delicious now to 2026.
Food Match: Shellfish, poultry dishes, and soft cheeses.
Technical Data
Alcohol: 13.0%
pH: 3.26

Tim Adams Fairfield Block Semillon

Tim Adams Fairfield Block Semillon

Tim Adams Fairfield Block Semillon

This aromatic wine has great balance and generous flavour typical of this variety grown in the Clare Valley.
Fermentation in new French oak has added complexity to the grassy and plush stone fruit characters of the Semillon.
The palate is textural and rich thanks to extended lees contact, without residual sweetness and has a long lingering finish.
It has diverse food compatibility—in particular with seafood and pasta and may be cellared for a decade with confidence.

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. “

Allegory Riesling

Allegory Riesling

Allegory Riesling – Lovely lemon in colour, the MadFish Riesling holds lime zest, citrus blossom and green skin pear aromas. The flavours are citrus, apples and pears with a soft stone/ mineral acidity that keeps the flavours long lasting and fresh. We recommend pairing our MadFish Riesling with BBQ’d seafood on a warm summer evening. If it’s too cool to sit outside, then try it with citrus cured trout, tuna poke or fish tacos.

For more information on the winery go to https://www.burchfamilywines.com.au/

Allegory Riesling grows in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. This climate is called “continental” and is characterized by long cold winters, warm summers and not a lot of rainfall. Being away from the coast, the difference between the day time and night time temperature is greater than in a region closer to the coast. Riesling seems to like these conditions.

Winemakers say Riesling is tough to make because there is nowhere to hide. It’s just you and the grapes, no oak, no malo, no tricks…

When we make Riesling we strive to preserve and showcase clean, bright citrus and apple, fruit flavours. Sometimes the acidity can be a little high so leaving a bit of sugar at the end of the fermentation gives a nice drinking balance – not too sweet and not too sour – just right .

The family owned business started in 1986 with the label Howard Park, its roots deeply imbedded in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Today Howard Park sources fruit for its iconic wines from family owned vineyards throughout Leston and Allingham vineyards in Margaret River, and Mt Barrow and Abercrombie vineyards in the Great Southern.

Allegory Riesling, a great example of this wine from the vineyards of Western Australia

Philip Shaw The Dreamer Viognier

Philip Shaw The Dreamer Viognier

Philip Shaw The Dreamer Viognier – Intense rose petal and lychee aromas with bright delicate varietal characteristics, with some complexity of oak starting to show. The palate is light fresh fruit, obvious acid balanced with elegant long spice and a touch of pepper.

The dreamer challenges convention and inspires innovation. Our Viognier keeps us dreaming, it is a constant reminder to question and create.
We trust our instincts to explore the potential in our vineyard to craft wine of distinction.
Winemaking Notes
• Harvested early for high acidity and lower alcohol
• Coarse settling at ambient temperature overnight
• fermented on light solids with a selected yeast at 14-16C temperatures to enhance its aromatic potential and maintain freshness.
• Ferment stopped to leave residual sugar of 7g/L
• Short maturation on fermentation solids

Winemakers Tasting Notes
The Dreamer is light straw yellow with hues of green. Fresh apricots and violets on the nose with lifts of lemon.
The palate is bright and fresh with vivid acid and juicy fruits. The balance of fruit and acid give the wine depth and vibrancy.
