Trentham Estate Tumbarumba Chardonnay

Trentham Estate Tumbarumba Chardonnay

Trentham Estate Tumbarumba Chardonnay

Light straw green colour with lifted white peach fruit supported by toasted oak nuances. Persistent clean flavours show an ideal balance of fruit weight and cool climate crispness. A refined elegant Chardonnay.

Tumbarumba Chardonnay comes from a high altitude, eastern-sloping vineyard at the base of the Snowy Mountains National Park, a
cool climate region highly regarded for producing premium Chardonnay. Light straw green colour with lifted white peach fruit supported by toasted oak nuances. Persistent clean flavours show an ideal balance of fruit weight and cool climate crispness. A refined, elegant Chardonnay

Harvested in mid-March the fruit was of exceptional quality with ideal sugar acid balance and elegant stone fruit flavour. The fruit was hand picked and whole bunch pressed into stainless steel tanks for the start of fermentation before being transferred to French oak barrels for a further six months before blending and bottling

The 46 hectares that make up Trentham Estate’s vineyards sit on a winding riverbank at Trentham Cliffs. The ideal terroir of red loam over limestone soils combined with nurturing water from the Murray River allows the vines to flourish.

Meticulously managed by viticulturist Patrick Murphy, the vineyard today comprises over twenty different grape varieties. The oldest vines were planted over half a century ago.
Harvest typically begins at Trentham in mid to late January – slightly earlier than most wine regions of Australia due to the warmer climate of the Murray Darling. Grapes are picked and crushed at optimum ripeness to produce the perfect flavour.

Trentham’ s winery 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. It allows the flexibility to perform different winemaking styles, resulting in the diverse and always consistent Trentham Estate wines.

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.

Philip Shaw The Idiot Shiraz

Philip Shaw The Idiot Shiraz

Philip Shaw The Idiot Shiraz

Shiraz from the Orange region is reminiscent of the wine produced in Northern Rhone, France. The wine displays distinct bright spice with a fine pepper character typical of cooler regions.

The Idiot does not follow the rules of convention; a fool to some, a genius to others. We embrace the unconventional and complex character of our shiraz. Not afraid to make a statement, this wine captures the playful, eccentric and unique elements of shiraz from our cool climate

Winemaking:

• Hand sorted
• Whole berry fermentation in open vats
• Extended time of skins
• Maturation in older French oak
• Racked once during maturation
• Natural malolactic fermentation in spring

Tasting notes:

The Idiot is dark garnet with a purple hue. This cool climate Shiraz is true to its region and variety. It has a fragrant bouquet with juicy red fruits and blueberry. The palate is succulent yet elegant. It has bountiful fruit and spice finishing with fine savoury tannins.

Philip Shaw The Idiot Shiraz is a great wine at the right price

The Orange wine region is uniquely classified by both geographical and altitudinal boundaries. Located approximately 260km west of Sydney on the slopes of the Great Dividing Ranges, the Orange Geographical Indication (GI) begins at 600 meters (1,968 ft) with vineyards planted as high as 1,100 meters (3,608 ft). Due to the high elevation, the climate of the Orange wine region is one of the coolest in Australia. The rainfall is winter-spring dominant. The three driest months are the ripening period of February, March and April. Orange is also noted for intense sunlight, which, coupled with the cool growing season, result in wines of bright fruit and distinct elegance.

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

INSPIRED BY OUR SURROUNDINGS WE REFLECT ON THE ESSENTIAL NATURE OF THE MURRAY DARLING TO CREATE WINES OF DISTINCTION AND SUSTAINABILITY.

THE GRAPES Pinot Noir makes some of the most famous wines in the world, but is a challenging variety; temperamental in the vineyard and needs nurturing in the winery. Picked from our best vineyard, the grapes ripened slowly and evenly to result in great fruit quality.

THE VINTAGE Warm, dry weather during the 2018 harvest restricted our crop levels and helped to produce exceptional fruit quality with plenty of aromatics and flavour. Lower rain levels during the growing season translated into smaller berries packing their punch, making our winemakers very happy!

THE WINEMAKING The grapes were de-stemmed and pumped through a chiller into the fermentation vessel at 5⁰C and cold soaked for 36 hours before yeast was added. Cold soaking is a winemaking technique used to increase the red berry characters in the wine. After the addition of yeast, the wine was fermented on skins for 5 days before pressing out. A portion of the wine was matured in French oak before blending and bottling.

THE WINE Cherry red with plum and spice aromas, berry fruit flavours with subtle French oak and a soft silky finish.

THE FOOD An excellent choice with an antipasto plate, light tomato-based pasta and almost any duck dish.

ANALYSIS Varietal: Pinot Noir Alcohol: 14.0% Acid: 6.1 g/l pH: 3.38 Sweetness: Dry
