The Googly Chardonnay

One Chain The Googly Chardonnay

The Googly Chardonnay

Chardonnay The Googly by One Chain Vineyards , part of the cricket series. The imperial length of a cricket pitch is one chain or 22 yards hence the name of this series of wine, and the Googly is the famed killer ball delivered by spin bowlers.

This Chardonnay is sourced from cooler climate vineyards to give a delicious, tangy white wine. Crisp, lively and bright, this citrus scented Chardonnay is well balanced, with tropical fruit and melon on the palate before presenting a vibrant, textured finish. Light, zingy and well balanced.

You really don’t need to be a connoisseur of the game to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of this Chardonnay.

One Chain Vineyards, like Thistledown is overseen by Peter Leske, Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW. One Chain works with growers to source fruit from some of the most established regions of South Eastern Australia. The Character Series has a range of beautifully produced and packaged wines, benefitting from the same ultra premium quality fruit sourced for Thistledown. Each wine has great varietal definition coupled with our signature vibrancy and freshness. These are wines that are immediately pleasing, yet authentic expression of the variety and place. The wines are inspired by a love for the Australian national sport. Indeed, the name One Chain is the imperial measurement for 22 yards, or the length of a cricket pitch. However, you really dont need to be a connoisseur of the game to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of the Chardonnay and the bright red fruit and subtle oak of the Shiraz Cabernet.

Soldiers Block Shiraz

Soldiers Block Shiraz

Soldiers Block Shiraz – Delicate red fruit and herbal aromas open up to a palate of ripe mulberry and plum fruit. the fine grained tannin and vanilla from the oak, work in balance to deliver a wine of poise and elegance.

Soldiers Block Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 – 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process – a sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.

Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.

Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses

Pimpala Road Chardonnay by Geoff Merrill

Pimpala Road Chardonnay by Geoff Merrill

Pimpala Road Chardonnay

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

Paulett Trillians Sparkling Riesling

Paulett Trillians Sparkling Riesling

Paulett Trillians Sparkling Riesling

A sparkling blend that is rich and generous with great length and “zing” of flavour anad loaded with character. Serve chilled this sparkling wine from one of Australia’s most famous districts.

Clare Valley is one of Australia`s oldest wine regions and is probably best known for its Riesling wines. Polish Hill River is a sub-region one and a half hours drive north from Adelaide. Named after the Polish settlers of the mid 1800s, the climate is ideal for premium grape growing with a combination of consistently good winter rains, hot summers tempered by cool nights and a long ripening period.
 
The name Polish River comes from the Polish settlers who came to the area in the early 1850s escaping religious persecution. Pauletts reputation for producing wines of finesse, elegance and intensity is justly deserved with consistent skill and care from vintage to vintage. Neil Paulett graduated from the Roseworthy oenology course in the early 1970s and spent a further ten years honing his winemaking skills at Penfolds before buying his own property in the Clare Valley. Located some 90 minutes north of Adelaide,this lovely property now extends to 150 hectares with 47 planted with vines. Since the first vintage in 1983 there have been many accolades both at home and internationally. These wines are a true reflection of the region and are of outstanding quality.
Tasting Notes
This unusual sparkling Clare Valley Riesling has a bright lemon colour with citrus and yeasty, biscuitty aromas with a persistant and fine mousse. The palate offers rich and lively mouthfilling flavours of typical zesty lime, pineapple, floral and honey flavours, perfectly balanced with a dry, refreshing natural acidity.
 
Food – An excellent aperitif and wine for enjoying al fresco, but will also prove a great accompaniment to rich seafood like lobster or scallops, artichokes or truffle infused risottos.

Vibrant crimson core with a lighter hue. Lifted aromas of blackcurrant and ripe dark plums with hints of black olive, sage and spices. Flavours of ripe blackcurrants and dark plums dominant the palate with a savoury hint of black olive. The fruit is integrated with oak flavours of cinnamon and cedar spice.
