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

Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino

Fowles Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino. Vermentino is an aromatic grape variety native to Sardinia. With its late ripening, the variety is well suited to warmer climates and is thriving in the Riverland in Australia. We chose to plant the variety at our Upton Run vineyards to hedge against the threat of climate change, as it is used to the warmer ripening conditions. As the Strathbogie Ranges still remain cool, we are seeing when picked early, the lean green style of this fruit is ideally suited to creating a crisp sparkling wine base.
We started experimenting with Vermentino in our Are You Game? Sparkling a few years ago. The blend has been the wonderfully poetic Chardonnay Pinot Vermentino. We noticed more and more how the fresh lively acidity, pear, apple and citrus fruit characters, helped create the perfect refreshing prosecco style sparkling wine. It was a natural progression to move to a Vermentino dominant blend.
Our new Are You Game? Sparkling Vermentino is pale green in colour with delicate and clean aromas of citrus blossom and pink lady apples. The wine is light and fresh on the palate with apple and mineral characters bursting through, followed by a balanced acidity and good length.

Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino – Served perfectly with fresh yabby, brushed with garlic and parsley butter, seared on the barbeque on damper – a truly Aussie take on the famous San Francisco lobster roll.

We love to source our food from the wild or grow it at home. Nothing beats the taste of food and wine as nature intended it – real: pure, slow grown and full of flavour. So like us, why not keep it real and go wild with food and wine matching…
Real Wine for Real Food. Are you Game?

Reviews:
94 points – Peter Chapman, News Corp
“This Victorian winery is continuing to grow in popularity and with wines such as this it’s easy to understand why. Pinot gris is becoming a popular drop for many and this is a classy one to savour.”

90 points – Ray Jordan, The West Australian
“I like this style of gris. It retains a freshness and lively palate feel and doesn’t fall into that overdone heavy category that can sometimes mar this variety. Comes from the King and Yarra valleys. Nice melon and pear characters with a typical spicy lift. A little dab of French oak and lees stirring has brought the palate to life

Are You Game Shiraz

Are You Game Shiraz is youthful red in colour with some bright purple hues, this shiraz has aromas of plum, black and green pepper and subtle oak. The palate is elegantly structured and well-balanced, with notes of ripe plum, chocolate and spice – and a great length of flavour.

The Fowles Wine vineyards and winery are located in the dramatic granite landscape of Strathbogie Ranges region of Victoria, Australia.
Fowles Wine crafts some of Australia’s finest cool climate wines, winning many of Australia’s most prestigious wine medals and trophies. The Fowles Wine team is energetic and enterprising, continuing to break new ground by proudly taking the Strathbogie Ranges ‘message in a bottle’ to the world with some of Australia’s most exciting wines.

The fruit for this wine was harvested during the day. Fermented at around 26 ̊ C in high-tech stainless steel sweep-arm fermenters to maximise colour and preserve primary fruit flavours. We chose to use a combination of three different yeasts to ferment this wine because each one contributes its own unique attributes that build layers of complexity and interest in this wine.
This wine was matured for 12 months using new French and American oak.The progeny of a perfectly mild and dry spring, this shiraz was blended with a dash of viognier (4%) from the central Victoria region, Dookie, to give it a subtle apricot perfume lift.

Are You Game Shiraz goes perfectly with roast pork and crackling with all the trimmings and with with all manner of meaty morsels.

We love to source our food from the wild or grow it at home. Nothing beats the taste of food and wine as nature intended it – real:
pure, slow grown and full of flavour. So like us, why not keep it real and go wild with food and wine matching…

Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years.

The Innocent Bystander story – Innocent Bystander creates wines that are delicious expressions of what we love to make and drink. They’re perfect for exploring iconic varieties from our home in the Yarra Valley as well as inspiring varieties from elsewhere in Victoria.
If we can’t make it great, we don’t make it at all. Our wines are made with quality fruit and a soft touch, with vinification that includes hand-picking, wild yeast and whole bunch ferments. We’re not judgemental about wine; we know there are people who love Moscato and bubbles as well as those searching for an exceptional Yarra Valley Pinot Noir and our range of wines reflects that.
We don’t make single vineyards wines, but we do know that great wines need great fruit, so we source the best grapes we can from some of the top vineyards in the Yarra Valley and if there’s a variety we want to make that doesn’t grow well here, we’ll get the fruit from elsewhere. Our winemaking team treat every parcel of fruit individually to ensure their characters shine through in the finished product, showing off the very best of the varieties and regions they represent to make flavoursome, balanced and delicious wines.
