Concert in the Vines Rocked Ghost Rock
Well our 2013 Concert in the Vines was a roaring success. The weather turned on its charm for us and we welcomed a huge crowd of happy concert goers on Saturday 2nd March to our annual outdoor concert. Everybody had a fantastic day and Ross Wilson and his band certainly didn't disappoint. Big thanks to everyone that supported the day - staff, bands, concert goers and everyone else who helped out in one way or another. We couldn't have done it without you and we hope you'll all come back next year!
In the Vineyard
Sparkling fruit was picked on March 27, and the Pinot Gris was picked on April 15. After what seemed like a long wait we picked the Riesling and Pinot Noir on April 26. The Sauvignon Blanc wasn't picked until May 2, and that's a first for us - picking in May!!!! This season certainly threw up some challenges and we're just pleased to have all the fruit in. Can't wait to taste the end results.
New Wine Releases
The 2012 "Two Blocks" Pinot Noir is our newest release. The fruit for this wine was sourced from both our Clairdown and Oulton vineyard blocks (hence the name) and introduces two new varietal clones. Savoury strawberry and wild berry aromas, and a light to medium palate of subtle spiced fruit characters.
This wine received a Trophy at the International Cool Climate Wine Show, 2013
Our 2012 Chardonnay has recently been released. It is the first vintage from our Oulton Vineyard, an unwooded wine that is pure 100% fruit. A beautiful wine that fully expresses our terroir and will be perfect drinking over the coming months.
This wine was awarded a Bronze Medal at the Royal Hobart Wine Show, 2012.
