There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands,.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»
Kalleske are one of our nation's most distinguished winegrower families, Barossa through and through, heirs to the tradition of Prussian pastoralists who established South Australia as one of the world's great viticultural precincts. The family Kalleske were the quiet achievers behind the stellar quality of fruit, at the heart of the most memorable vintages Penfolds Grange. Old sites and ancient vines, a tally of which have been branded under the Atze's Corner label, a regal range of stately Barossa wines, irresistibly underpriced in terms of provenance, excellence and sheer delight. Spectacular bouquets, redolent of freshness, fragrance and fruit,.. Small batches of the barossa's very best»
David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines,.. The legacy parcels of mountadam vineyards»

McWilliams Show Reserve 25 Years Tawny 500ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Touriga Grenache Riverina New South Wales
Australian Tawny is renowned throughout the world of wine for its engaging richness and remarkable complexity. Assembled from the last remaining barrels of old fortified Grenache, Touriga and Shiraz, McWilliams Show Reserve represents an indulgence in slow aged rancio flavours, raisins, dark chocolate and evocatively perfumed festive cakes. Twenty five years maturation means that the angels are constantly taking their share, as the extravagantly aged barrels are topped up every year by even more stocks of the most luscious Tawny wine.
Parcels of Grenache, Touriga and Shiraz are harvested at suitably high levels of natural fruit sugar 15° to 16° Baume. Grapes are crushed and destemmed, pumped into open fermenters and vinified on skins for optimal extraction of colour and tannins. A neutral grape Brandy spirit is added to arrest ferments and retain a measure of palate sweetness. Batches are drained and pressed, settled, racked off solids and stabilised before filtering into French oak. As older wines are summoned, new wines are filled for ageing up to thirty years. Upon completion, individual barrels are assessed for inclusion, assembled with the best of the best, to create a fine Old Tawny that's second to none. Alcohol 18.5%
Deep brown amber, khaki hues. Lifted intense rancio and walnut spice, pistachio and vanilla oak characters exhibiting the excellence of a decades barrel aged Tawny. Extremely rich and full palate, viscous, raisins, dark chocolate and festive pudding, round and luscious, long fine tannins balanced by the ambrosial sweetness, resolving on a dry, savoury finish.

McWilliam’s Wines is one of Australia’s largest and most highly regarded family-owned wine companies

Since 1877 when Samuel McWilliam planted his first vines at Corowa in New South Wales, successive generations of the McWilliam family have been pioneering the art of fine winemaking in Australia. Always innovative, McWilliam's has ensured its position at the forefront of Australian winemaking by introducing new production techniques and some of the world's most advanced technology in the company's wineries and vineyards.

McWilliams

McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant Estate – nestled in the slopes of the Brokenback Range in NSW’s lower Hunter Valley – was established in 1921 by legendary winemaker, the late Maurice O’Shea. Today, the Hunter Valley is widely regarded as the home of semillon, and McWilliam’s as the producer of Australia’s best wines from the variety. O’Shea’s ground breaking work has been kept alive by revered winemakers Brian Walsh (1956-1978) and Phillip Ryan (1978-current). The fact that there have been just three Chief Winemakers at Mount Pleasant since 1921 has ensured consistency of wine style and quality.

McWilliam’s Barwang Vineyard is located in the emerging, cool-climate Hilltops region, located on the southwest slopes of the Great Dividing Range, near Young in New South Wales. This high-altitude (560m) vineyard enjoys a dry summer and autumn, with cool nights and mild days resulting in a long ripening period. Heavy snowfall and frost in winter are quite common; and whilst substantial rainfall occurs in the growing season, most falls in spring. The region’s soil is deep red, decomposed granite clays impregnated with basalt. Showered with trophies and medals and praise from the media, McWilliam’s Barwang range has already carved an impressive reputation.

It is today widely regarded as one of the region’s best plantings of Shiraz. With Shiraz the only wine grape planted in Coonawarra from 1900 to 1950, the variety has played an important role in establishing Coonawarra’s international reputation as Australia’s pre-eminent red wine region. McWilliam’s Wines is today one of the largest landholders in Coonawarra, with almost 300 hectares of mainly cabernet sauvignon and shiraz vines. In recent years, the company has extended the Estate to include the 165 hectare Station Block and 100 hectare Kirkgate vineyards

McWilliams

The Yarra Valley – located just 50kms from Melbourne – is one of Australia’s premier cool-climate wine growing regions. It experiences consistently cool to mild weather, which allows for the slow, even ripening of fruit and produces long-lived wines of the highest quality. Lillydale's two vineyards, Morning Light and Sunnyside, were among the first to re-establish in the Yarra Valley in 1976. McWilliam’s award-winning Lillydale Estate range – which is overseen by McWilliam’s Chief Winemaker, Jim Brayne - exhibits classic cool-climate characters.

"Plant a six-inch nail in this soil, water it and in a year you will have a crowbar." So said John James McWilliam when he arrived in Hanwood in 1913. The development of the Riverina region as a major wine producing area was primarily due to the foresight of the McWilliam family. The Riverina, and Hanwood in particular, was an area John James McWilliam – the son of McWilliam’s founder, Samuel McWilliam – had identified earlier as having the potential to service the growing domestic and export wine markets. McWilliam’s Hanwood winery is distinguished by its barrel-shaped cellar door tasting room, and the large array of old bottles and winery memorabilia displayed in a 17 metre-long museum in the shape of a bottle.

Matthew McWilliam, son of Regional Director Max McWilliam, makes the famous McWilliam's Cream Sherry at the Robinvale Winery in the heart of the Sunraysia District of Victoria. Matthew and his staff welcome you to their charming Cellar Door to taste the full range of McWilliam's portfolio.

The underlying strength and success of McWilliam's Wines for more than six generations has been its belief that wine is made in the country - cultivated and crafted by people with skill and tradition who live and love the vine - not through acquisitions and mergers in corporate boardrooms. Wines are made by people. Great wines are made by the McWilliam family
