2015 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.

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.

Cellar Door is closed

Our physical cellar door is closed after fifteen years of being open seven days a week.
Judy and I are taking a rest and looking forward to a relaxing month.
Our wine are still available at our usual retail outlets and restaurants and of course our on line store is operating as normal.
We will be revamping the store over time and will offer some great Christmas specials in the next couple of weeks so do visit the site to take advantage of them.

Flood information

Thank you to all our clients who have send messages regarding the floods that have devastated our area. We are all safe and there is no damage to the vines on Camyr Allyn. The Allyn river did break its banks and was the highest we have ever seen it on Tuesday morning.
We have been isolated with no power, landline, mobile phone or internet until Friday.
Those of you who have had a picnic at the river will appreciate the photo. You know how heavy that table is and it is now perched in a tree down river. Sadly we lost the canoe.
Our thoughts go out to the residents of Dungog.

Sparkling Shiraz is back

At long last our Sparkling Shiraz is back.

The 2013 Sparkling Shiraz is rich, bubbly and bursting with flavour.

The ideal companion for that roast dinner especially Christmas turkey.

Or maybe with a triple Brie by the log fire or enjoy a summer afternoon drink with a flute of this amazing Sparkling Shiraz.

2003 Verdelho Review

James Evers was our winemaker in the era that this wine was made. Recently he reviewed the wine and his comments follow.
This wine is proof that Verdelho is not just a short term pleasing wine. At almost 10 years of age it displays a deep yet bright yellow hue that is still vibrant.
The aroma is a complex amalgam of buttered toast and honey suckle with hints of citrus and passion fruit from its youthful past.
The palate verifies the aroma with beautiful secondary characters of honey suckle and toast that coat the mouth with amazing depth and texture. The powerful full bodied mouth feel develops into an elegant clean citrus finish.
This wine is drinking beautifully now and will so for another year or two. It could be enjoyed with any richer seafood dish or poultry.

Personally I just love it. If you enjoy aged whites its worth a try.
