In 1890, Amos William Howard discovered subterranean clover thriving naturally in a picturesque valley in the Adelaide Hills. Howard Vineyards stone barn Cellar Door and premium red vineyard are located in Nairne, on the site of this original farm. Subterranean clover continues to grow at this site, restoring Nitrogen and ensuring the health and quality of the soil in this spectacular vineyard. 30km away, their high altitude (470m), cool climate white vineyard at Schoenthal (Beautiful Valley in German) is one of the Adelaide Hills finest sites for growing fresh, crisp Sparkling and white wines. It is these two unique vineyard sites that enable them to grow exceptional white and red grapes without compromise, and the Estate grown Picnic, Clover and Amos wines are renowned for their delicate notes and distinctive fruit purity. The winery is headed up by Tom Northcott. Tom oversees all vineyard and winemaking operations and his philosophy is simple; to make textural, cool climate wines that are light and elegant with a finesse that reflects the terroir of our vineyards.
Keith Tulloch Per Diem Recolo Rosé
Redbank Victorian Rose
Sourced from decades old low cropped Grenache vines our salmon pink rose has aromas of musk and rose petals. On the palate the strawberry and raspberry mid palate gives way to a crisp vanilla wafer like tannin structure. Old meets new with a perfect structure to enjoy with seafood or as an aperitif. Established in 2005 by the Hill-Smith family, Redbank Victoria specialises in ultra-cool climate wines from the valleys of Eastern Victoria. The vineyards are nestled in the high country of the Victorian alpine region as well as the King Valley, and some select vineyards in Beechworth. The winemakers and viticulturists work closely with a dedicated team of carefully selected independent growers. These small family-run vineyards offer unique and subtle soil and altitude differences that provide Redbank's winemakers with an opportunity to create distinctive wines reflecting the finest attributes of the region. Winemaker Marc van Halderen and viticulturist Nick Dry have a simple philosophy: great wine is made in the vineyard. Together, they craft wines from varieties such as Moscato, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz into styles ranging from aromatic, low alcohol summer whites through to spicy, plummy reds.
La Tour Travers Bordeaux Rose
West Cape Howe Cape to Cape Rosé
Sparklingly bright with a super pretty, very pale pink colour. Beautifully perfumed with dusty, delicate strawberry fruit aromas and some light, musk-like characters. A lovely palate with those dried strawberry fruit flavours beautifully balanced by the tiny touch of astringency. Fruity and definitely dry, it has the dusty, savoury characters from the Tempranillo component combined with the sweet summer berry fruit flavours from the Shiraz. Located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, West Cape Howe was named after a famous coastal landmark nearby. It was founded in 1997 by Brenden and Kylie Smith before being sold to Gavin Berry (ex-Plantagenet) and partners. West Cape Howe source fruit from specific vineyards, and sometimes specific plots, throughout the maritime-influenced Great Southern wine region. Premium parcels of fruit come from their Langton vineyard, planted in 1978. It has some of the most mature vines in the whole Great Southern area. Senior winemaker Gavin Berry prides himself on creating innovative wines that reflect the diversity of the Great Southern region. He makes wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, to name just a few. The wine styles vary from fresh and fruity, under the Western Australian label, to wines with a more regional focus, under the Great Southern label.
