schubert estate

Where it all began…Schubert Estate is located on some of the most sought-after pieces of dirt in the Barossa Valley - a special patch of five blocks terroir in Marananga in the Western Barossa.“The vines grow on red-brown loam over clay, ironstone and shale on a slightly elevated ridge of about 300 metres.”The terroir of the vineyard site leads to a strong expression of Barossa Valley Shiraz - wines that are opulent, concentrated and rich, packed with black fruit, chocolate and licorice aromas, expressive tannins and structured for aging.The wines have won many international awards. Today Schubert Estate has a “Five Star” rating for its Sentinel brand in Winestate magazine’s World’s Greatest Shiraz & Syrah Challenge 2018.The flagship wines - The Goose-yard Block Shiraz and The Gander Reserve Shiraz also…

provenance is the word!

Every ten years or so a new buzzword appears in the wine industry, usually in a promotional sense. In the eighties we had “cold soak” a term relating to extending the fermentation period of wine on grape skins to provide additional savoury characters. For cool climate areas like Coonawarra that wasn’t a problem as rough and rugged Doug Bowen pointed out. “I call it just trying to get the f*#king ferment to start,” he said to me when I asked what it was all about.Then in the nineties we had the “wine is made in the vineyard” catch cry which kind of makes sense when you think about it. In the noughties prominent winemaker Brian Croser coined the phrase “dead fruit” referring to excessively ripe fruit, being lifeless and not…

PUSH FOR MORE WOMENTHE Australian wine community now has a Diversity and Equality In Wine Charter which all grape and wine producers are being encouraged to sign on to.The aim of the charter is to create an inclusive industry where all participants can contribute to their full potential and receive equal pay for equal work. At present, women working in the Australian wine industry are among the most disadvantaged. “We know we have around 50-50 representation of female/male graduates from university courses in winemaking and viticulture,” said Tony Battaglene, chief executive of the newly-formed Australian Grape and Wine Inc, an amalgamation of the Winemakers’ Federation of Australia and Australian Vignerons.“But there are approximately only 10 per cent of females in leadership roles within the sector, so we have a bit…

nz briefs

INVIVO IN THE CITY?THE dynamic team at Invivo Wines is clearly not content just to sit back and enjoy its recent record-setting crowdfunding capital investment offer (which raised over $NZ4 million, $A3.8 million, from 687 investors in just over a fortnight) not to mention its wildly popular collaboration with Graham Norton (think sauvignon blanc, rosé, prosecco and Irish gin). Instead, the team will soon launch a project with actor Sarah Jessica Parker, of Sex in the City fame. With a sauvignon blanc and rosé expected mid-year, Parker will not just be putting her name to a wine, but as with Graham Norton, she’ll be involved in all aspects of its production, from label design to winemaking decisions, including the say over the final blend. Parker is also a shareholder in…

white gems in the red engine room

LANGUEDOC-Roussillon is the engine room of French viticulture. This southerly region, along much of France’s Mediterranean coast, produces roughly a third of all French wines - around 14 million hectolitres-about 1mhl more than all of Australia.Given Languedoc-Roussillon’s Mediterranean location, you’d think it’s pretty much red wine territory, and it is. Along with some rich, fortified wines. But there are also a few gems of white wines to be found in three appellations at the west, east and south boundaries of the region. In absolute numbers, all the white appellation wines make about 15 million litres, so just over 1 per cent of total Languedoc-Roussillon production. This figure doesn’t include the sparkling Languedoc-Roussillon appellation wines - so add on another roughly nine million bottles, and that’s still way less than 2…
