Wine Education – Cooling influences from the ocean

Did you know that cold ocean currents can have a cooling effect on coastal wine regions? Why is this good? ‘Cooling influences’ such as ocean currents and ocean breezes help the vines to retain the acidity in their grapes, which adds to the ‘structure’ and ‘finish’ in the final wine. Next time you are in […]

More sunlight = more flavour. It is also important to balance the right levels […]

Celebrate World Sauvignon Blanc Day on Friday May 6th! 
Sauvignon Blanc’s homeland is the Loire Valley in France (pictured). The wines of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé are the most famous. It is also grown in Bordeaux, in neighbouring districts to its famous red offspring, cabernet sauvignon. Recently, New World countries have adopted the variety to great effect, especially New Zealand, Chile, South Africa, the USA (California and Washington state), and of course Australia. 
In Australia, we produce a number of sauvignon blancs from our coolest vine-producing regions. Western Australia, particularly Margaret River, Victoria, particularly the Yarra Valley, and South Australia, particularly the Adelaide Hills, are the best suited areas in Australia for Sauvignon Blanc. The grape variety requires a cooler climate to maintain its acidity, freshness and its distinctive varietal profile.  #sauvignonblancday #sauvignonblanc
Today is ‘International Drink Wine Day’! The perfect excuse to have  a glass of wine tonight. Whether you are sipping a glass of chilled Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, a beautiful salmon- pink Rosé or a silky Pinot Noir it is time to celebrate. It is also a lovely way to end the week.  #DrinkWineDay #globaldrinkwineday #drinkthatwine #winenot #wine #winedays #winetime #cheers
Celebrate World Champagne Day today! 🥂🍾 Champagne is the most prestigious sparkling wine in the world. Associated with luxury, decadence and style, Champagne is also a celebratory drink, for any occasion or even to mark the end of the week!  There is only one appellation in the famous Champagne region, Champagne AC. A French sparkling wine that is grown outside of the Champagne appellation is not Champagne.  The three main grape varieties that are used in the production of Champagne are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. Non-vintage Champagnes must be aged for a minimum of 15 months, including 12 months on lees. Vintage wines must be aged for a minimum of 36 months.

Celebrate International Grenache Day today! 
Grenache is grown around the world and it is mostly known as a blending partner with other grape varieties. However,  when it is made into a varietal wine on its own, Grenache can produce a richly flavoured red wine that shows an abundance of red berries and delicious peppery spices.  Some of the finest wines from Chateauneuf du Pape, in the Southern Rhone, are made from 100% Grenache. Other great wines from this region are made from Grenache blended with Syrah and Mourvedre. These iconic wines are also full-bodied, rich and textural with a concentration of spicy red fruit aromas and flavours.  In Spain, Grenache is known as Garnacha and it is used in blends with Tempranillo,  from regions such as Priorat and Rioja.  Outside of Europe, some of the world’s highest quality Grenache wines are made in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale,  as well as other Australian regions. Made from old bush vines, these wines are known for their impressive concentration of ripe fruit flavours and their overall approachability. Being a late ripening grape, Grenache needs to be planted in warm or hot climates.

Celebrate International Cabernet Sauvignon Day! Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in many of the world’s wine regions, such as the Napa Valley in California, Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand, Colchagua Valley in Chile and Stellenbosch in South Africa.  In France, Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic grape of the Haut Medoc,  in Bordeaux,  and it makes some of the world’s most highly prized and age-worthy wines. The red wines of Bordeaux are mostly a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. They are incredible wines, known throughout history as being the pinnacle of red wine making.  In Australia, there are pockets of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon growing in regions such as the Eden Valley or the Adelaide Hills. However, Cabernet Sauvignon really excels in the Yarra Valley, the Margaret River and the Coonawarra.  Interestingly, there tends to be a maritime influence in the top Cabernet Sauvignon wine regions. Viticulturalists say that this keeps the vineyards cool enough to retain the acidity in the grapes,  while also allowing enough sunshine to develop good fruit flavours and to ripen the grapes. The Coonawarra also has the famous strip of red, ‘terra rossa’ soil, which is ideal for producing intensely flavoured and well structured wines.  Australian Cabernet Sauvignon usually shows aromas and flavours such as blackcurrant, black cherry, dark chocolate, mint, black olive, eucalyptus or cassis, in any combination. The wine usually has firm tannins and a good acidity, ideal for helping Cabernet Sauvignon to age well.  Overall, Australian Cabernet Sauvignon has a total abundance of flavour and it goes extremely well with prime cuts of beef.

As well as France and Germany, the 'new world' wine countries such as the USA, Chile, South Africa and New Zealand also produce high quality Pinot Noir. The list of top Pinot Noir regions in the world includes; Sonoma County, Carneros, Santa Barbara County and Oregon (USA), Casablanca (Chile), Walker Bay (South Africa), Marlborough and Central Otago (New Zealand).

It is National Shiraz day today! There has never been a better time to enjoy a glass of full-bodied Australian Shiraz at home on a cold night. Check out our range – link in bio.
Australian Styles of Shiraz  1) Everyday shiraz  These juicy wines are fresh, generous, rich and spicy. These wines are designed for early drinking and have a noticeable vibrancy of fruit, freshness and vivacity. The use of blending older vine components and the judicious use of oak however gives them a rich and powerful core, that can take the unsuspecting drinker by surprise.  2) Cooler-climate shiraz  Elegant, spicy and vibrant expressions of their origins - proof that shiraz can adapt growing almost anywhere. Tasting cool-climate shiraz wines, you will notice a lighter palate weight, more structured tannins, higher natural acidity and distinctive spicy, peppery tones. These characters complement their ripe berry, plum and anise aromas and flavours. Cooler-climate shiraz wines show great elegance and silkiness. Grape yields in cooler climates have to be lower, and as a result, overall production costs are higher than those associated with everyday wines. But if you want something out of the ordinary and distinctively individual, cool climate shiraz wines are hard to beat!  3) Warmer-climate shiraz  The powerhouses of the Australian wine industry - they present rich, full and ripe wines with a depth and complexity to match. Tasting warm climate shiraz - you will notice a much heavier palate, densely packed with complex primary and developed fruit characters. American oak adds to the soft nature of these wines. Tannic in their youth, they develop a round, silky supple texture and wonderous camphor, earth and chocolate nuances with age. And age they will, the fruit is so powerful and intense, these wines will mature, quite literally for decades.  #nationalshirazday #shiraz #australianshiraz #shirazlover #shirazwine
