Ripper Reserve Releases

Latest news

It’s been a while since the last release, so we are thrilled to be releasing two reserve wines this autumn. Coming soon is the next version of our “W.J.J.” Reserve Pinot Noir from the 2015 vintage and for the first time a Reserve Chardonnay – “The Kay” also from the 2015 vintage. We consider both wines to be super quality and are certain that they will be well received.

2015 ''BEURRE BOSC' PINOT GRIS

Classy luscious fruit, the creaminess and light tangyness of the meld of pears, orange blossom, spicy apple, musk and lychee works a cracker. Great aromatics, good structure to boot, together it works a treat on the aromas front and in the palate delivery of a lingering long delicious moreish set of classic varietal flavours.

2015 'VUE DU NORD PINOT NOIR

While a lot of trade will be done in the P&J bargin 'Rapide" pinot at $20, a smart, fresh and youthful style, step on up to this all-lenswood marque which has plenty of the variety's distinctive bush and forest herbal notes - thyme, rosemary, eucalypt - and a blacker fruit profile with more solid weight and structure, more intensity and greater platae drive. Lots going for it and worth a drive to the spectacular cellar door location.

IWC Silvers

Latest news

We also have done quite well in Tranche #1 of the 2017 International Wine Challenge winning Silver medals for the “Methode Cuve” Pinot Rose Sparkling as well as for our 2016 “Separe” Gruner Veltliner. The 2016 “Separe” has just been released at our cellar door, so don’t forget to try it when you are there next. This wine was officially classified as “bloody delicious” by a group particularly vinous bods we know and is the perfect drink while we are still in summer mode.

Pink Goes Gold

Latest news

Our “Methode Cuve” Pinot Noir Rose NV did very well at the recent Adelaide Hills Wine show winning a Gold Medal in the sparkling class. It was one of only 3 golds awarded to the 45 wines entered. Sadly, we were pipped at the post for the trophy on the day, but we were really pleased with the result and judge’s comments. The 2010 “Methode Traditionelle” was no slouch either winning a very creditable Bronze in the same class. Always nice to get a little bling.

The aromas are slightly funky and nutty, supporting varietal white peach. The impressive palate is long and creamy. ($318.00 for 6 bottles) ★★★★☆

2016 'Sirocco' Chardonnay

Adelaide Hills does what you might call 'silky Chardonnay' exceedingly well. White peach, green melon, lime, struck match, vanilla, cashew. Medium bodied, smooth and silky, with just the right amount of white peachy fruit, green olive savoury and spiced oak, fine acidity, light flinty texture and a cool lime-laced finish of super length - 94 points.
