Winemaker Notes

Fruit was sourced from a single vineyard in the upper reaches of Victoria's King Valley, the vines almost touch the heavens at 600 metres above sea level while their root systems burrow into the deep volcanic soils.

This site is perfect for ripening Shiraz. Crimson red with a vibrant red hue, this Fighting Flat Shiraz has lifted cinnamon and nutmeg aromas with red cherry and toasted vanillin oak in support. Forty percent of the fruit was picked early whilst exhibiting classic cool climate white pepper flavour, the balance was picked when the fruit displayed ripe jube and aniseed characters. This enabled small batch winemaking to be implemented, with the two parcels carefully pieced together at the end.

The result is an outstanding example of cool climate Shiraz. Full-bodied with a fine grained tannin structure and a sweet fleshy middle palate. Nutmeg and cinnamon fruit flavours are complimented by subtle coconut American oak. This is a wine that will reward those with patience, however, for those who can't wait, it is a perfect accompaniment to lamb shanks or mushroom risotto.

Redbank, , Australia
Redbank
Redbank captures the rugged essence of Australia's High Country of North East Victoria as well as the collaborative spirit of the early Australian pioneers. A small, select "family" of grape growers have come together for a common effort to produce the premium fruit for the wines of Redbank. Vineyards which are lashed by blizzardly cold winter winds and buried in snow for part of the year emerge at harvest with grapes of the highest quality that enable the Redbank winemakers to produce superb cool climate wines, infused with plenty of hard work and humor.

California

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
