Soldiers Block Chardonnay

Soldiers Block Chardonnay

Soldiers Block Chardonnay is an elegant and easy drinking wine. This vibrant Chardonnay exhibits lifted fruit character, bright tangerine fleshiness, textural mouth-feel, a bright palate and a long and foodie finish.

Long standing working relationships with some key growers enable us to source premium fruit, with the ultimate aim of making excellent quality Australian house wines with true style and character. Grapes were picked earlier than usual to ensure balance and freshness in the final wine. Harvesting took place in the early dawn hours when it’s still cool and calm which helps retain the rich characters within these grapes. Once in the cellar, they are gently crushed to maintain the bright, fresh flavours crucial to the clonal tang. Around 15% of the grapes are sourced from the cooler, sea breeze influenced Langhorne Creek area. This portion is barrel aged in French medium toast casks to obtain a more complex, textural and weighty style of wine. It is then added to the greater part of the blend which is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel to retain the fresh fruit characters.

This vibrant Chardonnay exhibits lifted fruit character, bright tangerine fleshiness, textural mouth- feel, a bright palate and a long and foodie finish. The judicious addition of blob of oaked Chardonnay adds palate weight and texture.

Eat with Full-flavoured fish such as trout or halibut or chicken in a light creamy sauce.

Bremerton have been experimenting with making wine without preservatives for a number of years, resulting in this Shiraz.

Rich and ripe with a concentrated plum fruit core and a silky texture.

VEGAN FRIENDLY

BREMERTON NAP SHIRAZ – selection process – Rebecca Wilson, winemaker. – So far the parcels that have allowed a NAP shiraz to be made have been very concentrated in colour (anthocyanins) a natural preservative. Also very microbially sound so able to sit with no SO2. Great fruit expression and natural balance. We monitor parcels post MLF and pick the ones to be topped and no so2 added then monitor their development for 4-5 month to allow for some natural stability before committing them to the final selection.

Vinification details
Fruit was picked from Bremerton’s Langhorne Creek vineyard. After fermenting in open top fermenters, the wine was pressed to oak and aged on lees for four months.
The natural concentration of anthocyanin (colour) helps preserve this fresh and vibrant wine. Selected barrels were carefully gravity-racked to blend then sent to bottle young to capture the vibrancy.

d'Arenberg Vintage Fortified Shiraz

d'Arenberg Vintage Fortified Shiraz 50cl

d’Arenberg Vintage Fortified Shiraz, another classic from this famous Australian producer.

From the first declared vintage in 1928, their fortified wines have been Shiraz based, and the vines that produced the original vintage still provide the grapes for this wine. These old vines are stumpy, gnarled and deep rooted, distinguished by their small bunches of highly coloured and intensely flavoured grapes.

2018 is a tale of two vintages for red wines in McLaren Vale. Winter rain ensured the soil reached filled capacity and set the vines up perfectly with healthy balanced canopies. A normal spring and an unseasonably cool January and February meant most vines remained stress free and for early picked parcels flavour ripeness was achieved at reasonably low sugar levels and high natural acidity. However, a sustained heat wave in early March forced frantic picking and resulted in rich ripe characters.

Generosity is the theme of this wine. The aromatic nose is a gift of chocolate, fresh pipe tobacco, and Christmas pudding, with fresh violets lingering in the background together with an array of spices, from nutmeg and cinnamon, to cloves and ginger. This wine has been fortified with high quality brandy spirit during the natural fermentation process. This has captured the beautiful character of the fermenting grapes. The palate is packed with intense flavours of plummy sweet fruit, figs, nuts, dried apricot, and exotic lively spice. Natural acidity has been retained and provides a structure on which the generous fruit body of this wine can sit. Chewy grape tannins carry this generosity through on a long and warm finish.

d’Arenberg Vintage Fortified Shiraz from McLaren Vale, a great example of this typically aussie style of wine.

Fiercely independent, extremely progressive and committed to looking after the land and its people, Yalumba acknowledges that the reputation of their wine is only as good as the next bottle a customer drinks.

In 1847 a 37-year-old brewer called Samuel Smith left his home in Wareham, Dorset with his wife Mary and their four children. Boarding a simple three-masted barque they left Plymouth and began the long and arduous journey to Australia, arriving in Port Adelaide. From there they trecked north to Angaston where Samuel took a job as a gardener. It was arguably this brave decision to start a new life in a remote and distant land, together with the hardship that they endured, that formed the strong sense of family unity that has been the bedrock of the family business ever since. In 1849 he started the wine farm that would grow over the next 5 generations to become one of Australia’s leading wineries, with a winemaking culture that is internationally recognised and respected. To embrace the native culture, Samuel decided to adopt a local name for his farm, calling it “Yalumba” meaning “all the country around’’ in the indigenous Peramangk language.

Yalumba operates the Southern Hemisphere’s only fully operational Cooperage, crafting bespoke oak barrels that elevate the wines aged within them. Our Nursery is a global leader in wine innovation, growing, evaluating and supplying quality grape vines to the Australian wine industry.

Y Series Pinot Grigio is a part of their Y Series range of excellent value wines.
