A surprise win!

Posted by Eric Semmler on

We were still celebrating the Women in Wine Awards when a courier dropped off a parcel. To our surprise we had won the Best Organic Wine in the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show, and we hadn't even known!

We hastily looked up the results: Gold and Trophy for the 919 Pale Dry Apera, and a silver for the 919 2015 Reserve Collection Touriga Nacional. 

Surprise!

New Releases

Posted by Eric Semmler on

Our 2015 Touriga Nacional is now available. This wine was recently featured in the Adelaide Advertiser's Top 100 Wines, and has been selected by Wine Australia to showcase the best of Australian wines in Shanghai for the traders dinner. It was successfully exhibited at the Gems of the Riverland tasting at the London Wine Fair earlier this year.

Touriga Nacional is a lovely complex wine of medium weight and moderate alcohol. It has intense aromas of cherry, spice, cinnamon and smokey small goods with a lingering sweet/sour and savoury finish. The wine benefits from being opened 15-20 minutes before service and may throw a crust from two years of age. We love Touriga Nacional with char-grilled quail, Asian style duck or sticky pork ribs.
