Mount Horrocks Watervale Semillon

Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Semillon

Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Semillon – Gleaming, very pale yellow. Lifted fragrant vanilla spice over apple and pear fruits, generous and appealing. Semillon’s lemon zest and herbal characters are held aloft by a deft touch of French oak barrel fermentation, delivering additional texture and spice notes, layered upon sprightly acidity. Flavoursome and stylish, rich and rounded yet not at all heavy, with fabulous length.

Grosset Alea Riesling

Grosset Alea Riesling

Grosset Alea Riesling

The Alea (pronounced ey-lee-uh) vineyard, is named for the Greek goddess of wisdom and courage, Athena Alea. The vineyard is situated at Watervale`s highest elevation, where the soil is poorer and tougher than that at the adjacent ‘Springvale’ vineyard. The low yields are vital to allow for full ripening at high acidity which Jeff Grosset is convinced is the key to success with the off-dry style.

This is an amazing riesling, perhaps the best yet under this label. It has intense lemon grass and lime juice characters which follow through on to the palate. The flavours are intensely concentrated, powerful and show incredible depth. The vibrant natural acidity balances the sweetness and lingers long and dry on the finish.
‘Inspired by the best dry Rieslings of Europe, Alea is produced in the international style, made to the Grosset standard. From the Rockwood vineyard in Watervale where the likeness to European fruit was first noticed in 2007, this wine offers great versatility; people, food, situations. The flavour and balance of the 2017 vintage are exquisite and the best so far.’ JG
Ageing Potential: First vintage 2012 so as yet unknown, however probably 15 years
Source: Grosset Rockwood Vineyard (ACO certified organic)
Fruit Flavours: Kaffir lime with hints of white flowers and herbs
Profile: Almost dry, underpinned by a linear acidity: fragrant, generous, succulent and long
Fining: Nil- suitable for vegans and vegetarians

Awards & Reviews:
James Halliday, The Weekend Australian Magazine, 18th November 2017
Jeffrey Grosset is able to make a divine nectar of this not quite dry, not quite sweet wine. Its circle of pure riesling flavours runs alongside mouthwatering acidity. In its style, it is perfection. 97 Points.

Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

.Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

The Great Escape Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills 2015
The Great Escape is our benchmark, cool climate Chardonnay produced from fruit grown in elevated vineyard sites which allow for a long ripening period which helps to maintain the natural sugar and acid balance of the grape. With moderate alcohol, focussed, crisp citrus fruit and a mouthwatering finish, this is an accomplished, truly modern style of this noble variety.

Vintage Conditions

Another dry season, no doubt influenced by El Niño, saw McLaren Vale and the Barossa have a very early, condensed harvest but up in the Hills, it was almost the perfect season. Much improved fruit set led to a healthy crop load wth even bunches that ripened gradually through February’s perfect conditions. Looking to retain natural acidity and energy in the wine, we hand-picked in two vineyards over the course of 10 days with the end result being some of the most pristine fruit we have witnessed.

Winemaking

As with all of our wines, the winemaking process is a gentle one with the intention of preserving the natural flavours of the wine while at the same time building layers of texture.

Fruit is picked in the cool of the early morning and goes directly to press where the free run juice is run off to tank to settle. We retain a relatively high level of solids in the ferment – half of which is done in tank with regular movement of lees and half is done in used French hogsheads with regular “battonage” of the lees to build flavour and texture. We do not encourage malolactic as we want to pre

Willunga The One Hundred Grenache

Willunga The One Hundred Grenache

Willunga The One Hundred Grenache.

Halliday Wine Companion Magazine, April/May 2017 Issue

“Bright red in the glass, it has floral aromatics of a spring rose garden with spice and red fruit that jump out of the glass. The palate is luscious with a generosity of fruits, from strawberry to a hint of cinnamon, harnessed by fine, sandy tannins. It drinks perfectly with slow-roasted lamb shoulder. Enjoy from now until 2025.”

Tony Love, The Sun Herald, March 2018
4.5 Stars 

“There are two single-vineyard iterations in this: Blewitt Springs and Clarendon, the former a celebration of the Vale’s sub region where cooler nights temper the more robust tendencies of Grenache and a unique fragrance develops, here with rose petal above native bush florals. Medium bodied, fine sandy tannins in the mouth feel are also a signature. But that fragrance – beautiful.”

The soils in McLaren Vale are among the oldest in the world, estimated at over 500 million years. The resulting low vigour and old vines combine to produce low yields in the vineyard and stunning, concentrated fruit.

The name is taken from the historic ‘Hundred’ (administrative area of 100 square miles) of Willunga that was established in 1839 – only three years after the settlement of South Australia – and today marks the land from which much of our fruit is sourced. The tree featured on our bottle label is an old River Red Gum, which stands tall over the vineyards and was already over one hundred years of age when the first vines were planted in McLaren Vale in the 1840s.

Before the first vintage in 2005, the team explored the McLaren Vale vineyards and came across plots of 50-year-old Grenache vines. At this time, most of the wine produced from this fruit was destined for blending as there was little demand for top quality Grenache. We decided this had to change, so they made these vines their focus and gave them the attention they deserved. They haven’t looked back since.

Willunga The One Hundred Grenache. – A great example of Aussie red wine from a winery which is passionate about Grenache.
