Gamba Old Vines Zinfandel Starr Road 2014
A terrific Old Vine Zinfandel from a single vineyard and an epic vintage!
 
Wine Description:  The Gamba Old Vine Starr Road Ranch Zinfandel reveals an inviting dark ruby-purple hue in the glass. A fascinating nose weaves aromas of blackberry bramble and cherry vanilla with essences of cider spice and nutmeg. On the palate, the intense layers of juicy dark fruits such as a black cherry, velvety blackberry and flinty plum flavors offer a richness that fills the mouth with essence of roasted fig, and pleasingly lingers on the palate. The fruit is framed by an appealing lift of acidity and complimented by freshly toasted cocoa, caramel and spicy, mild tobacco leaf. Finally, the wine is accented by soft tannins and lead to a long, balanced finish that invites the next taste experience.
 
Vineyard Information: The Gamba Starr Road Ranch Vineyard
Planted in the Russian River Valley on a gently rolling hillside in 1920, the Starr Road Ranch Vineyard, formerly known as the Moratto Vineyard, is organically farmed, consistently producing low yields of the highest quality fruit year after year. We are excited to continue our work with this legendary vineyard site, and share the resulting wines with you. 
Trizanne Signature Wines Swartland Syrah-Grenache 2014

Trizanne Signature Wines Swartland Syrah-Grenache is made from 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache

Tasting Notes: 
A youthful punch of red and black fruits on the nose with a delightfully savoury touch of black olive. That continues on the harmonious and well-weighted palate. A youthful, solid and (most importantly) delicious wine.

 Hand picked from 17-year-old dryland vines on Swartland schist soils. 100% de-stemmed & fermented in open-top fermenters. Elevage took place in 500L French oak puncheons.

Wines were gently filtered before bottling.

A.P. Vin Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Bright and vibrant, sweet gorgeous texture layered with black cherry, blueberry and earthy Christmas spice surrounded by big, bold fruit and focused oak. Supple and delicious with a long, lingering finish.

The fruit is picked in the early morning hours to retain acidity, 100% destemmed and left to cold soak for four to five days. A light pigeage followed by a one-time racking to barrel is all there is to this one.

Aged in a combination of new and older French oak barrels for 11 months. 
Bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2014.

 

 

Product Description

Thiele Road is a dusty track that crosses Bethany Creek at the foot of the Barossa Ranges. It is home to Jason Schwarz's family's 70 year old, deep rooted Grenache vines that produce wines with complex flavours and plenty of character.

Bouquet: The nose is floral and expressive with raspberry and pepper.
Palate: Red fruits, spice and earth with beautiful balance and structure. Medium weighted with fine acidity. A wine built on complexity and packed with interest.

Planted in 1941. The gnarled, old vines continue to produce fantastic fruit and the quality out of the 2014 vintage was evident. The vines are handpicked, 10% whole bunch and the remainder de-stemmed and into an open fermenter. Before too long the wild yeast population on the grapes kicks off fermentation and that continues with daily gentle pump overs and hand plunging until fermentation is complete and the flavour profile is just right. The wine is then basket pressed and matured in seasoned French oak for 18 months before bottling. Not filtered or fined.


Review:

"Jason Schwarz’s great uncle planted the grenache vines at his family’s vineyard just southeast of Vine Vale in 1946. Schwarz, who started his career in wine marketing, later returned to Barossa to learn how to make wine. He convinced his father to sell him some fruit in 2002, and has been making wine from the family’s vineyard ever since. This 2014 is a happy wine, from its crisp red fruit to its racy tannins. Its beauty may be simple, but there’s nothing bluntly fruity or tannic about it. Just the taste of delicious grenache, a little earthy, a little rich and hard to resist."

Winery: Schwarz Wine Company

The Schwarz Wine Company Estate
Jason Schwarz has strong family connections with the Barossa wine scene, and his father is a grape grower with over a hundred acres of vines. After obtaining a degree in wine marketing and traveling around the world, Jason returned to the Barossa Valley and persuaded his father to allow him to use a small amount of his fruit. He produced his first vintage in 2002.

The
Schwarz Wine Company Vineyards
The family Grenache block is planted along a dusty old bus track (Thiele Road) and has been there since Jason's father’s uncle dropped in the cuttings in 1946.
The Nitschke Block was planted in 1968 by Jason's parents in Bethany, one of the originally settled villages of the Barossa Valley. The vines are still traditionally hand pruned and picked. This dry grown vineyard yields only 1.5 to 2 tonnes per acre.

Alain de la Treille Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Our Touraine Sauvignon blanc is crisp and refreshing, with rich, ripe lime and grapefruit aromas. Great elegance with mineral style and despite everything some kind of roundness.

Average age of the vines is 20 years old.

We produce a part of this cuvee with 12 hours skin maceration and another part from directly pressed grapes

Wine was slightly filtered before bottling to ensure wine will remain stable.

Ideal for the Aperitif , any cooked fish such as smoked and grilled salmon but also obviously with a Goat Cheese.
