Winemaker Notes

Mawson's wines come from Wrattonbully, which is situated about 300 km south east of Adelaide and about 30 km north of Coonawarra. The climate is a balance between those of the viticultural regions of Coonawarra and Padthaway.

Crimson red in color and displays intense aromas of lively red fruit pastille married with attractive nutty oak nuances. The palate opens with bright cherry and raspberry fruits melding with cedar and oak on the mid-palate and finishing with refreshing light astringency.

An excellent match with roast leg of lamb. Also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Wine Enthusiast
An offshoot of the Yalumba group, Mawson's sources this fruit from Wrattonbully, just north of better-known Coonawarra. It's a medium-bodied, elegant style of Cabernet, not overpowering, but featuring ample cassis fruit tinged with mint and tobacco. Drink now–2018.

Mawson's
One of Australia's finest explorers, Sir Douglas Mawson inspired the world with his courage and heroic feats. Yalumba was proud to be a sponsor of Mawson's pioneering Antarctic expeditions in 1911-14. In honour of the winery's historic association with this great Australian hero, Yalumba has released Mawson's, a rich and complex wine displaying generous ripe berry flavors complemented by spicy French oak.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

Garganega

View all wine

Flourishing in the rolling vineyards surrounding the medieval village of Soave in the Veneto region, Garganega is one of Italy’s classic white varieties. It makes up 70 to 100% of any Soave (white wine) by law, with the remainder finished off traditionally by Trebbiano di Soave for its crispness. More recently international varieties like Chardonnay are being used to create softer and fruitier Soave.

The best Soave wines come from the Soave Classico zone, where the hills are made of decomposed granite soils and have the capacity to produce elegant and vibrant wines. The remainder of the zone tends to give rounder and fuller versions of Garganega.

Garganega’s best white wines are steely and delicate with yellow peach, melon, almond, Herbs de Provence and lime zest flavors and aromas. Its simpler versions can offer great values and make wonderful quaffers. If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, try Graganega for something a little different.
