Keith Tulloch Shiraz

Keith Tulloch Shiraz

Keith Tulloch Shiraz – A Rhone Valley style, with fully ripe Shiraz characters of blood plum and ripe black cherry fruit balanced with the exotic Viognier aromas of citrus blossom and rose petal. Married together these varieties produce a palate with richer aromatic charm, warm briar berry spice and a velvety medium-bodied balance. With a rich, ripe black-fruit softness on entry, and smooth roundness and chocolatey softness onto the finish. Adding to the mix is the finely integrated weave of supple oak, and a delicate floral hint of violets and rose-petal resulting in a beautifully complete blend. 5% Viognier.

Keith Tulloch Shiraz – a great wine from Hunter Valley

This wine has great personality with varietal fruit presence and savoury texture.

Award-winning winemaker Philip Shaw produces this delicious Pinot Noir from high altitude vineyards in Orange, New South Wales. You’ll find a richly aromatic style, full of ripe summer pudding fruit laced with powdery tannins, savoury and more exotic spice.

A cool climate region can be defined as an area with heat degree days of 1600 or less. Cool nights in the growing season, large diurnal variation, long cool autumns and distinct seasons are also key factors in defining a cool climate region. Orange is one of a handful of regions in Australia that fall into this category. Orange is unique among these regions due to the cool climate being the result
of continental conditions rather than latitude.

The vineyard at Koomooloo is volcanic in nature, something that the mountain continually reminds you of. There is a divide on the vineyard between younger and older basalt soils. The majority of the vineyard is 12 million year old olivine basalt, overlaying deep limestone. 400 million year old Fairbridge basalt border the property adding to the complex character of the vineyard.

Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White

Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White

Lovely pale yellow colour with green tints. Citrus pith and florals on the nose rather than big tropical notes. Very appealing. Initial flavours of citrus and melon, light cool palate at 11.55 alcohol. Grapefruit, finger lime and a zesty acidity adds to the structure. A perfect summer drink paired with a wide range of food.

Wine Profile
Vinification
As the wine is from New South Wales, we are fortunate enough to be able to process most of the grapes here in the Hunter Valley, enabling an extra level of winemaker attention. This ensures the delicate grape aromas are preserved. Fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks.
Winemaker Comments
We’re quite proud to introduce this wine, the 30th vintage of the blend. The label didn’t get the full Cricket Pitch livery until the 1995 vintage, although the Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot was labelled as Cricket Pitch for the 1991 wine released in 1993. This wine is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. Several regions make up this blend being Cowra 32%, Orange 42%, and Hunter Valley 16% and Riverina 10% This wine also highlights our desire for lower alcohol and weighs in at 11.5% and with plenty of zesty fruit lift.
Food Pairing
A perfect Summer drink to pair with a wide range of foods. Enjoy with a dozen freshly shucked oysters and a whole baked barramundi for lunch, or a spicy Asian laksa for dinner.

Brokenwood Cricket Pitch White – An easy drinking wine to chill and enjoy this summer.

Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has evolved from a weekend venture for self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels.

Brokenwood was founded by a trio of Sydney-based solicitors, Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday, who paid a then record price of $970 per acre for a 10-acre block in the foothills of the Brokenback Ranges. The original block was destined to be a cricket ground for the local community but was instead planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Trentham Estate Shiraz

Trentham Estate Shiraz

Trentham Estate Shiraz

THE GRAPES Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is thought to originate from the Rhone Valley in France and it continues to be the most predominant variety in this region. In 1831 James Busby collected cuttings from France and brought them to Australia. By the 1860’s Shiraz was established as one of the most important grape varieties in Australia and has developed an excellent reputation and is sought after worldwide.

THE VINTAGE ‘Late but great’ sums up the 2017 vintage. Good rain in spring, followed by mild weather and only short heat waves resulted in grapes ripening slowly on the vine. It was certainly an unusually late harvest but the wines are something to be proud of – well balanced fruit, plenty of flavour and distinct varietal aromas.

THE WINEMAKING Once harvested, the grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into the fermentation vessel. The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 days before pressing. After pressing, the wine was matured in a combination of new and aged French and American oak barrels. The wine was then blended and bottled in June 2017.

THE WINE Dark vibrant red in colour with lifted aromas of black cherry and chocolate. On the palate concentrated dark fruit flavours are complimented by subtle oak characters of mocha and spice. Full bodied and well-structured with firm ripe tannins providing balance and length.

THE FOOD Excellent match with any grilled red meat or a rich casserole.

ANALYSIS Varietal: Shiraz Alcohol: 14.5% Acid: 6.4 g/l pH: 3.51 Sweetness: Dry

Trentham Estate Shiraz is one of the range from the Trentham’ s winery which has been operating since 1988, where it has grown from the initial 30 tonne crush to a minimal but state-of-the-art facility handling up to 5,000 tonnes of premium fruit each vintage.
