FSW 8B Wratonbully Botrytis Viognier

FSW 8B Wratonbully Botrytis Viognier (37.5cl)

FSW 8B Wratonbully Botrytis Viognier – Autumn in Wrattonbully – dewy mornings, soft mists and warm sun on ripe grapes – perfect for ‘Botrytis cinerea’ and the naturally alluring Viognier grape to unite and create the golden nectar that becomes Yalumba Hand Picked Botrytis Viognier. The intense flavours of Viognier have great synergy with the richness of the Botrytis, offering opulent flavours of apricots, peaches and spice. Exotic, luscious, long and elegant, this wine is an experience to be shared.

A select patch of our Viognier vines are encouraged to grow a dense canopy reducing air flow and encouraging the infection by and growth of Botrytis cinerea. Botrytised grapes are difficult to press and several pressings are required to liberate all of the viscous nectar. Good quality juices are hard to ferment, so a special yeast strain is used to balance the ideal sugar levels, allowing the wine to find its natural balance.

The nose is intense honeysuckle, musk and vanilla with high tones of lemon thyme and ginger. The palate is long and luscious with opulent flavours of stone fruit and spice. The balance is perfect, delicately poised between sweetness and acidity. This finish is lingering and memorable.

Stella Bella Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Stella Bella Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Stella Bella Semillon Sauvignon Blanc – classic Margaret River blend of crisp, grassy sauvignon and tangy, citrussy semillon. Vibrant, massively refreshing.

This quintessential Margaret River blend is made to suit the beautiful Margaret River lifestyle. Perfect at the beach, paired with local produce and shared with good friends.
Our Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted throughout our collection of southern Margaret River vineyards providing the ability to capture strong varietal character and maintain high natural acidity. Using a combination of sites provides great varietal complexity.

Cooler temperatures and some unusual rainfall required diligent viticulture to ensure the fruit was in perfect condition. This resulted in the development of ripe flavours at low sugar levels and high natural acidity in white varieties, providing the perfect balance to an create aromatic and precise wine.

Stella Bella Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw with green hues in colour. It has a delightful aroma of a charming combination of citrus, passionfruit, guava and lemon meringue with a sea spray freshness and restrained savoury straw character.

On the palate it produces citrus flavours of lemon and lime which are complimented by the natural mineral acidity. The textural palate and rounded flavours create a very pleasing supple and salivating finish. 

High yields in Semillon meant only the best parcels with moderate crop loads were used. Semillon was fermented in tank and 15% of the Sauvignon Blanc in old oak. Creating the perfect harmony between the two varietals… Sauvignon Blanc providing punchy perfume and Semillon delivering plush palate texture.

It naturally pairs with freshly caught Augusta King George Whiting, a seasonal salad and local Yallingup Woodfired Bread.

Jansz Premium NV Cuvée

Jansz Premium NV Cuvée

Tasmania is renowned as Australia’s home of great sparkling wines. The fruit used in this Jansz Premium NV Cuvée is grown on selected, cool climate vineyards across Tasmania.
To maximize blending options and complexity in the final wine, batches are kept separate during winemaking. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle and is aged on yeast lees for as long as possible. The perfect balance for our Premium Cuvée is reached at just over two years.
Honeysuckle and citrus scents are immediately apparent with slight aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and a hint of strawberry from the Pinot Noir. A well-balanced palate of delicate fruits and creaminess fills the mouth with a lingering finish of citrus and nougat.

The Jansz Premium NV Cuvée is based upon Jansz wines of several vintages with specially selected and crafted individual batches from the cooler locations in South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria, with the largest regional parcels being Tasmanian. The matching of the crisp and fine flavours has resulted in a structured wine of medium body with zesty fruit characters.

Thistledown The Basket Case Old Vine Shiraz

Thistledown Basket Case Old Vine Shiraz

Thistledown Basket Case Old Vine Shiraz

Thistledown Basket Case Old Vine Shiraz
Barossa 2014

The Basket Case forms the bedrock of what we do at Thistledown. Ever since our first visits to the Barossa, more years ago than we’d choose to recall, we’ve been variously inspired and confounded by what is achievable in this iconic region. Inspired by the incredible soils and the way in which Shiraz, in particular, is able to express itself here, confounded by winemaking practices that can seem formulaic, reliant on alcohol and ripeness alone.

Vintage Conditions
Cool conditions and below average yields (shiraz down by 25% and Cabernet Sauvignon by as much as 40%) led to great varietal expression in whites and reds – with reds exuding brilliant colour. Overall, the quality of reds was exceptional. Harvest was up to a month early, with most whites picked by late February and early red varieties starting to come off in early February.

Viticulture
The region of Barossa is blessed with a multitude of soil structures and we like to work with fruit that displays the effects of the changing nature of the soil explicitly. Much is talked about the role of old vines and they are indeed a fabulous resource. However, they are not a guarantee of quality and in some years, having a trellised, judiciously irrigated middle aged vine may well provide wine of better balance than a dry grown old vine. We therefore like to work with a spread of trellised and bush vine vineyards, old and new, dry grown and irrigated. The consistent factor must be limited yields and balance.

Winemaking
The grapes are sourced from growers all over the region, with a leaning towards the northern end of the valley where we love the dark, crunchy fruit. We pick the fruit “on the way up” to total ripeness and then we give it a gentle cold soak before ferment and basket pressing. Ageing is done in 300 & 500 litre barrels, predominantly French and only ever about 25% new to allow the fruit rather than the oak to dominate.

Tasting
Glossy, soft and perfumed with lush black fruits and a creamy, liquoricey palate. A wine that is multi-layered, textural and subtly fruited. Structured without being monolithic, tight, perfumed, effortlessly drinkable.

Alcohol 14.5%
Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans

Thistledown is now a five star winery rated by James Halliday. This makes it one of the leading producers in Australia.

Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre

Stump Jump GSM by d'Arenberg

Stump Jump GSM by d’Arenberg.

It is rumoured that the inventor of the Stump Jump plough, which enabled a ploughshare to jump over tree roots, had poor eyesight and required regular tests to ensure he could still operate machinery. The design of this label is inspired by an optometrist’s eyechart and serves as a makeshift sobriety test. If you can hold the bottle at arm’s length and still read the front label, you can enjoy another glass.

A wine whose price tag belies its complexity and structure. From raspberry and rhubarb to cedar and soot. Aromas jump unimpeded from the glass. The medium weighted palate is similarly expressive, its impressive array of fruit given lift and vibrancy by an equally scintillating line of acidity. Towards the finish, chalky tannins sweep across the tongue, adding savouriness and crunch. Bright Grenache, earthy Shiraz and spicy Mourvedre marry harmoniously in this ever popular GSM.

A warm and dry spring and summer followed by further dry conditions throughout harvest meant a number of things. Firstly disease pressure was negligible, the vast majority of fruit being very clean. Secondly yields were down. Finally ripening happened relatively quickly. From a quality perspective in regards to reds, these conditions produced wines of incredible colour and flavour. Dark, brooding wines with great volumes of fruit and layers of chewy, velvety tannin structure. Big, concentrated wines but beautifully balanced.

The grapes used in this wine are mostly from very old bush vines, and underwent gentle crushing, traditional open tank fermentation, basket pressing and oak maturation prior to bottling.
