Sparkling Rose

This month we feature our Sparkling Rose.

A delightful blend Verdelho and Pinot Noir grapes produces a refreshing Spring taste with just a hint of strawberry. Crisp and dry this wine is the perfect party starter or enjoy with that special friend.

The fine bubble produced by a secondary fermentation, Method Charmat,
results in a tingle on the tongue and a superb mouth feel.

If you like moscarto you wont like this very serious sparkling rose.

GSM

The GSM blend has roots in the Southern Rhone region of France and is extremely popular in Australia today. And for good reason! The delicate balance of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro grapes produces a full bodied wine rich in flavour yet soft and inviting. The Mataro grape lends an astringency to the wine that makes it a little refreshing on the palate with a clean mouth feel.
The Camyr Allyn GSM is produced for grapes grown in the Barossa valley and is the first in its Regional Series.

Verdelho

This month’s wine of the month is the 2015 Verdelho.
Verdelho is a Portuguese variety grown on the Island of Madeira where it is used for making Fortified wines and one of the four types of Madeira.
Here it is grown in The Hunter Valley in NSW, Western Australia and South Australia predominately for white table wine. Sadly, many of these wines are sweeter and detract from the wonderful varietal characters of the variety.
The Verdelho grape makes a sensational dry table wine when picked at the correct sugar and acid content. Made correctly it will age and in fact we have a limited amount of 2003 that will delight those who like a good aged white.
The 2015 Verdelho
is a dry, crisp and refreshing wine. Brilliant green-yellow in colour the wine boasts a lifted, estery passionfruit, lime and pineapple aroma.
The palate tantalises with fresh tropical flavours of pineapple and passionfruit tempered with a
lean citrus tang and finishes with an excellent balance of fruit and refreshing acidity.
