An ongoing resurrection of some fabulous old vines, a distinguished Blewitt Springs site and a range of the most spectacular McLaren Vale wines. When Kelly and Bondar acquired Rayner Vineyard in 2013, they knew that everything depended on the management of site and soil to achieve the excellence of wine they had in mind. The most fastidious husbanding regimens and a tightly scheduled evolution towards organic viticulture, the propitious Rayner vines have never yielded finer harvests, all translating into a tour de force across the entire Bondar range. Salient quality and penurious pricing make for a compelling mix. Old vines grown to salubrious soils, the.. Model mclaren macerations»

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Kevin John Cullen was a passionate believer in the quality of Margaret River wines and particularly for the potential to achieve one of the world's great Chardonnay growing regions. He established the International Chardonnay Tasting, now in its third decade, to enable the efforts of Margaret River to be compared alongside the best vintages from around the world. Kevin John anticipated that the lessons learned from these comparisons would inspire his winemaking team to optimise the quality of Chardonnay grapes grown to the Cullen estate vineyards.

Diane Madeline has found her oenological paramour. Kevin John is named after the estate patriarch and shares provenance with the most stately Margaret River Chardonnay. Grapes are picked at ideal physiological ripeness, after achieving healthy profiles of natural sugars. Acid levels in the fruit grown by Cullen are remarkable, with low pH and fine balance, making any additions for adjustment unnecessary. Chardonnay is harvested around the full moon to a cycle in accordance with the best biodynamic practices. Grapes are whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in French oak barriques, two thirds of which are new, followed by partial malolactic and five months maturation.
Brilliant straw colour with green tinges. Already complex, combining delightfully fresh citrus, paw paw, matchstick, gardenia and almond aromas. Complex, cultivated and engaging palate, the fresh vibrant citrus flavours and attractive minerality lead into a crisp lingering and long finish that's characterised by refined acidity. Delicious, elegant, pure and intense, a Chardonnay of great personality and charm to accompany crustacea and supreme de volaille.
