Winemaking Notes

‘Skilly Ridge’ Riesling 2019
This wine has floral and citrus aromatics and a seamless palate with a richness of flavour built from the dry ripening conditions of the vintage. Produced using only free-run juice, fruit flavours are kept pure and the resultant wine mirrors the berries tasted in the vineyard at harvest.

‘Heinrich’ Fiano 2020
Native to southern Italy, it comes as no surprise that this variety is a perfect match for Clare Valley terroir. The vines are able to produce a strong stylistic example of Fiano characteristics. We have chosen to create a textural style of Fiano, concentrated and delicious with lifted tropical lychee and peach flavours, balanced with fresh grassy herbal notes and a creamy yet crisp finish. Naturally, this style of wine goes well with Italian food, including shellfish, pasta, chicken and pork dishes.

‘Ladera’ Tempranillo 2016
This wine exhibits the definitive Tempranillo characters of strawberry and cherry, in harmony with clove and cinnamon spice derived from 18 months aging in new and second-use French oak. The palate is juicy and savoury by Australian standards and is lower in alcohol than most red wines we make. We have allowed time in the bottle for the natural tannins to soften, so this wine is drinking beautifully now, but will develop to its full potential over the coming ten years.

‘Watervale’ Cabernet Malbec 2015
By co-fermenting small parcels of outstanding dry-grown Cabernet Sauvignon with Malbec, we have produced a powerful, full bodied wine. Twenty-four months in new French oak provides spice and balance to the wine, which is dominated by ripe blackcurrant, sweet capsicum and violet flower aromas and flavours. It makes a great match to lamb and other red meat dishes.

‘Schaefer’ Shiraz 2015
Twenty-four months in new French oak provides perfume, spice and balance to the wine, which is dominated by dark red cherries, plums and red berry aromas and flavours. Patient cellaring will be rewarded, with potential to improve for up to 20 years. Shiraz makes a great accompaniment to beef dishes.

‘Aberfeldy’ Shiraz 2016
The bold, yet elegant 2016 Aberfeldy has a vibrant magenta hue with aromas of dark berries, cherry, plum and chocolate accompanied by clove, nutmeg and vanilla characters derived by the oak. The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours and firm tannin generated from the perfect growing season leading in to vintage. Synonymous with quality, our flagship wine has earnt and maintains a Langtons Classification of ‘Excellent’ and has been referred to as “Clare Valley’s Grange”.

Food Pairing

Riesling and Fiano go well with seafood. Tempranillo is an excellent accompaniment to tomato based casseroles, Cabernet Malbec goes well with lamb and Shiraz is excellent with beef and other red meat dishes.
