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 […]

Wine Education – Sunlight & Vineyards

How important is sunlight to a vineyard? Without light, plants are unable to photosynthesize and they die,  but beyond this, sunlight is one of the most important factors in growing grapes that have the right amount of glucose and fruit flavours. More sunlight = more flavour. It is also important to balance the right levels […]

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.

Pinot Noir can be made into a variety wine styles, from light and fruity styles featuring cherry and strawberry notes to more complex, gamey and earthy styles. Pinot Noir is usually higher in acid and lower in tannin, making it an ideal pairing for lighter, fattier foods duck, cheese and lamb.  Often, the region defines the style. Along with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is the main grape variety in Burgundy, where the cooler climate produces highly prized wines, loved throughout history of drinking wine! Germany is also known for high quality Pinot Noir,  produced in the cooler regions of Pfalz and Baden. 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

The Rhone Valley is one of France's most spectacular wine regions. Set on the banks of the River Rhone, this incredible wine region features The Northern Rhone and The Southern Rhone.  In The Northern Rhone, the only permitted red wine grape is Syrah (Shiraz), whereas The Southern Rhone is mostly known for producing Grenache, with Shiraz and Mourvedre playing a supporting role. Syrah from the Northern Rhone is deeply coloured with high levels of tannin and ripe aromas and flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and black pepper.  Grenache from the Southern Rhone can be full-bodied, quite ripe and show spiced red fruit flavours such as cranberry and red plum. It also blends beautifully with Syrah and Mourvedre.  Both regions also make beautiful white wines such as Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, as well as dry Rosé.  However, the red wines from the Rhone Valley are distinctively powerful and they underpin the reputation of the Rhone Valley, around the world.  So too, are the Rhone style red wines that produced in Australia, in regions such as The Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale.  The Rhone Valley has been a significant source of inspiration to Australian winemakers, who are also known around the world for making powerful Shiraz, Grenache or Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre (GSM) blends.

Today is World Chenin Blanc Day! Chenin Blanc is a delicious, dry white wine that has both high acidity and a fuller flavour profile, depending on how ripe the grapes were when they were picked. Chenin Blanc grapes are also very versatile, they can be made into sparkling, sweet or still wines.  Chenin Blanc is grown around the world but it does particularly well in Australia (Margaret River and McLaren Vale), USA (California), Argentina (Mendoza) and South Africa (Paarl, Swartland). Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s most widely grown grape. Winemakers in South Africa are making complex and concentrated Chenin Blanc wines from old bush vines,  that can be aged for decades, rivalling Chardonnay for depth and flavour.  Some of the most impressive Chenin Blanc wines come from the Loire Valley in Central France. Climate and soil make a big difference to Chenin Blanc wines and the Loire Valley has a diverse range of both. The appellation of Savennieres produces full bodied, dry Chenin Blanc wines while The Coteaux du Layon appellation makes incredibly good sweet wines that have an abundance of flavour and acidity. The regions of Vouvray and Saumur produce still and sparkling Chenin Blanc wines. The region of Anjou, also in the Loire Valley is known for dry Chenin Blanc wines that are often matured in oak.
