New Wine Releases & New Vintage Releases
With a tough harvest finally behind them, our winemakers have managed to not only create the 2016 vintage for future release, but also put the finishing touches on their latest new releases.
Lismore Age of Grace Viognier – NEW
Samantha O’Keefe, owner and winemaker at Lismore Vineyards in Greyton continues to dominate the local and international wine scene with her apologetically bold and different wines. Along with her new fresh label design, she has released a new “Age of Grace” Viognier, a tribute to her own winemaking journey.
This viognier is a reflection of Samantha’s obsession with how special soils, climate and a mysterious sense of place come together to produce an extraordinary wine that tells you its story.
This expressive viognier, grown on rose-quartz soil, seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual and exotic experience. Barrel fermented and aged. Enjoy it now or allow it to gain complexity with further cellaring.
Almenkerk Chardonnay 2014
A tribute to minimalist winemaking; natural settling after pressing, wild yeast fermentation in French barriques, maturing for 10 months on the lees. This enhances the mouthfeel and gives multiple layers of complexity. This classic cool-climate Chardonnay is packed with citrus fruit and balanced by gentle wooding. Will reward cellaring for up to 5 years.
Please note that this is one of our allocation products so stock is limited
Almenkerk Merlot – NEW
More than 10 years in the making, this estate wine is another milestone in our quest for wines with poise, character and finesse. This elegant Merlot aims to showcase the best our cool climate Elgin Valley can offer; blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit purity supported by a fine, graphite tannin structure showing great depth and length. Will reward cellaring for up to 8 years.
De Toren Fusion V & De Toren Z – 2014 Vintage Release
2014 truly presented us with amazing wines, full of character, freshness and always important balance. These wines will benefit from aging and we cannot wait for you to taste.
