    Winemaker Notes

    Ravenswood, the Sonoma County winery best known for its blockbuster Zinfandels has taken its "No Wimpy Wines" credo down under! The California winery has released this Australian Shiraz under its Vintners Blend label. This blend for Ravenswood comes mostly from the McLaren Vale and Barossa regions -- about 40 percent from each, then bottled in Australia and shipped to the United States.

    The idea for the new bottling came about when Ravenswood winemaker Joel Peterson was in Australia visiting BRL Hardy, a winery also owned by Ravenswood's parent company. Like many wine producers around the world these days, Hardy had some excess juice, and after tasting through a few samples, Peterson became intrigued by the possibilities. The result is a delectable red wine, soft and tasty; excellent with grilled sausages.

    Fueled initially by the inspiration and winemaking skills of Joel Peterson, aided and abetted by his business partner W. Reed Foster, Ravenswood winery has been dedicated to top quality, hand-crafted wine since the first crush in 1976. Every Ravenswood wine carries a unique vintage and vineyard identity in addition to the intense powerful – gothic – character with which the winery has come to be associated.

    A key to Ravenswood’s success is their long-standing relationships with over 60 independent grape growers. Vineyards are chosen for their location, age, yield and special flavor characteristics. At Ravenswood, they are devoted to working with growers who share their philosophy about high quality.

    Ravenswood Vineyard Designate wines are made employing what Joel Peterson refers to as “stubborn and impractical” Old World enological practices. Wines are fermented in small wooden tanks using wild, natural yeasts and punched down by hand three to five times per day. The wines are characterized by intense, spicy aromas supported by rich, berry flavors and long, clean finishes.
