Evelyn County Chardonnay 2005 EVELYN COUNTY ESTATE CONTINUES TO MAKE THUMPING AWARD WINNING CHARDONNAYS. Chardonnay was one of the first three varieties to be planted at the vineyard in 95, whilst the first vintage Chardonnay was selected to be included on the Sydney Opera House's Bennalong Restaurant wine list. The year's growing season allowed for ideal fruit ripeness, whilst maintaining perfect natural acidity, a feature that is becoming pleasingly predictable in fruit sourced from the Evelyn County vineyard. The fruit displayed an intensity and power that carried through to the nose and the palate of the resulting wine.

Yalumba, Australia's oldest
family owned and operated winery, has a wealth of history and tradition
Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch Yalumba, aboriginal for 'all the land around'.
 Yalumba

The Yalumba philosophy quietly encourages innovation, experimentation and a visionary outlook in the quest to make great wine. There are literally thousands of rare, eclectic and idiosyncratic grape varieties used to make wine around the world. Yalumba's Vine Propagation Nursery is able to source many of these varieties, performing clonal and varietal selection, which ultimately provides small batches of fruit for Yalumba's Vinnovations label. In order to sustain the formulation of some of Australia's most compelling wines, Yalumba implements an environmental improvement programme that reflects credible environmental stewardship and due diligence.

At Yalumba, no aspect of winegrowing or winemaking is left to chance. For the past 30 years, Yalumba has been able to influence grape quality at its earliest stage. In the 1970s, the winery made a far-sighted decision to establish its own vine nursery. Today the Yalumba Vine Nursery is one of Australia's largest viticultural nurseries, supplying high quality vines to winemakers throughout Australia. Not only does the Nursery provide safe, quality rootstock for established varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, it is also a leading supplier of specialised clones such as the Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones in heavy demand by the country's leading winemakers.

In a wine market largely obsessed with single-varietal wines, Yalumba has remained steadfast in its commitment to that most Australian of wine styles, the Cabernet Shiraz blend. Cabernet Shiraz is taken so seriously by Yalumba, that Brian Walsh, Yalumba's Director of Winemaking persuaded the committee of the Adelaide Wine Show to introduce a separate judging class for the style. It's a wine style that is unique to Australia, he says, and plays such an important part in Australia's winemaking history.

As a wine business operating in the rural environment for over 150 years, Yalumba recognises the impact of its activities on its natural surrounds. Yalumba is committed to integrating best environmental practice into its everyday activities to ensure long-term sustainability. In 1999, Yalumba became the first Australian winery to sign up for the Greenhouse Challenge - an initiative dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Yalumba's aim is to be recognised as Australia's finest independent wine company. A wine produced by means of environmentally-friendly sustainable processes is increasingly being recognised as being an intrinsic aspect of quality.

The crafting of oak barrels is a proud tradition at Yalumba with a coopering history dating back to the turn of the 20th century. With its own on-site cooperage, Yalumba is the only winery in Australia, and one of a small and select group of wineries in the world, to enjoy this privilege. Oak plays an important part in the winemaking process and Yalumba have the advantage of being able to have full control of the quality of oak used to age their wines. Yalumba imports oak staves from the world's best oak forests in France and America, and then air-dries the oak for many Barossan summers and winters to leach any sappy, bitter characters from the wood. This extended seasoning (as opposed to the more common practice of seasoning the oak for between 18 months and 2 years) imparts rich chocolate mocha characters and adds yet another layer of texture to the wine without masking the fruit flavours.

In 1984 when
Palliser planted its first vines, they had little inkling of where the future would take them
The original facilities were constructed in time for the 1991 vintage. As the company and vineyards grew it became neccessary to expand. A new purpose built barrel hall was constructed in 1999. This was built from thermomass concrete and is temperature controlled to minimise losses due to evaporation. The winery's works were re-developed in time for the vintage of 2002, and Palliser can now process 600 tonnes of fruit.
 Palliser Estate

Palliser's founders knew they wanted to make good wine, but where does it all start? Palliser Estate's environment allows them to grow outstanding grapes to create magical wines. Palliser take pride in the care of their vineyard soils by encouraging diversity of plant life. The winemakers minimise spraying and use only friendly sprays where possible. Caring for the environment started as a notion, now it is an ethos.

The quality of the Palliser grapes are acknowledged as among the best in New Zealand. Locals say that Martinborough is the best place in the country to make wine. Winemaker Allan Johnson is first to agree and reels off the reasons: soil, water, and air, the three natural elements essential to making quality wine. Reliable dry autumns increase the intense flavours, and low cropping levels are produced by cool windy spring weather. Low cropping levels and undiluted flavours tend to create the essential ingredients of power and concentration from which fine, and even great wines are produced. Martinborough is one of the few areas where this situation is naturally imposed by the weather.

Palliser produces two labels that are recognised around the world for quality, Palliser Estate and Pencarrow. The Palliser Estate wines are a strong and distinct premium portfolio, whilst the Pencarrow range is in a different style, and offers very approachable wines of excellent quality. Palliser Estate's wines are served in some of the world’s finest restaurants, enjoyed by thousands of people every day and savoured by international passengers travelling the world with airlines such as Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa and KLM.

Palliser firmly believe that they are responsible for the care and management of their environment. It is the unique combination of soil, air and climate that allows Palliser to grow such outstanding grapes for their wines. Palliser Estate have an environment management system throughout the company that ensures that everything the winemakers do is considered on its environmental impacts. Palliser Estate have introduced a new system that re-uses the winery's wastewater for irrigation. The wines are in recyclable or re-useable packaging.

Palliser owns 90% of their own vineyards and invest heavily in viticulture to produce a great product. To date that investment has been paid off by the production of world class wines. Palliser is proud to be innovative in their approach to environmental aspects. In 1998 Palliser Estate Palliser were amongst the first wineries in the world to be certified to the international environmental standard ISO 14001. Palliser Estate are part of the Living Wine New Zealand group www.livingwine.org.nz, a group of wineries all certified to ISO 14001 and dedicated to continuous improvement of their environmental systems.

At Flametree, the
vision is to produce brilliant Australian wines of uncompromising quality and character
The Flametree is a spectacular Australian tree, in full bloom, a magnificent sight to behold. Interestingly it only comes into full flower when all conditions are favourable. The same is true of winemaking. To produce spectacular, wine all of the elements, from grape to glass, must come together at the right time.
 Flametree

The Flametree Winery is located on the picturesque shores of Geographe Bay within the Margaret River winegrowing region. The team at Flametree select exceptional fruit to produce beautifully handcrafted wines with unique flavours, great depth and fine structure.

The Flametree philosophy is an elegant yet laid back approach to wine, ensuring that whenever you enjoy a bottle of Flametree it is a relaxed and enjoyable experience. The Flametree Cellar Door has been designed to capture the essence of the beautiful beachside locale. A selection of Flametree wines are available for tasting each day and all of the range including new vintage releases and a selection of limited release wines can be enjoyed over a bottle of wine in beautiful landscaped gardens.

A new state-of-the-art winery was completed in 2007. The winery is a reflection of a commitment to excellence, the design ensures minimal fruit handling and a significant investment has been made in acquiring equipment and technology that maintains the integrity and purity of fruit. A selection of French oak barrels are used to mature the wines, with a little American thrown in to add diversity as required.

Given the favourable climate conditions of the southwest, night cooling is employed to keep the barrel room temperature controlled. The system kicks in when the external temperature reaches 18 degrees Celsius or less. Any warmer internal air is sucked out and the cool night air is allowed to flow into the building. This system minimises refrigeration requirements and environmental impact. A custom designed environmental waste water treatment system means that all of the water used in the winemaking process is recycled and used to irrigate vines and surrounding landscape.

Flametree is a highly meritorious winemaking estate that works very closely with some of the Margaret River's most dedicated growers. It is truly amazing to see a new winery claim such an impressive string of reputable awards, so early in their career, immediately upon their label’s debut appearance around the Australian wine show circuit. Flametree's commitment to excellence is the driving force which sees the quality of their wines gain stature with every vintage. The Flametree team's passionate approach is rewarded by accolades and the respect of peers. The philosophy at Flametree is to make wines that express the quality of the fruit sourced and to strike the right balance between flavour and structure.

Situated right at
the heart of the Yarra Valley, the Train Trak vineyards yield intensely flavoured wines, reflecting the exceptional grapegrowing conditions, rich soil and ideal elevation
The Yarra Valley is one of the most renowned wine regions in Australia. It is the birthplace of Victorian vineyards, where wine has been continuously produced for over a hundred years. Train Trak relates to the railtracks which run through the property over a quaint trestle bridge. The train line, built in the 1800s was an important link to the Yarra Valley and is still a significant landmark traversing the local vineyards and pasture.
 Train Trak

Train Trak is sited along the Healesville-Yarra Glen Rd, near the Yarra Glen Race Course. The Train Trak vineyards thrive under the Yara valley's cooler climes. In neighbouring Healesville for instance, the mean January temperature is just 19.4 degrees, lower than Bourdeaux or Burgundy in the same part of the growing season. Unless there is drought, the rain is quite constant throughout the year, with a peak in spring, annual rainfall is 910mm while in the growing season it is 400mm. There is always some threat of frost and hail, which can reduce yields, in spring and or summer.

The eighteen hectares vineyard sprouts north facing vines, planted to rich clay loam soils with a moderate and ideal fertility, with an average yield one and a half to three tones/ acre, depending on variety. The vines bare Chardonnay clones P58 and I10V3, Pinot Noir clones MV6 and D5V12, Shiraz clones PT23 and Cabernet Sauvignon clones PT23SA125, all of which are exclusively hand picked. The local cool climate produces a long ripening period, resulting in a full display of flavours and balanced acidity, harvest is usually carried out March to April.

The first estate vines were planted in 1995 and nurtured thereafter by the superior viticulture practices of John Evans. All wines are produced solely from estate grown hand picked grapes. Attention to vine site location, based on varietal preference, sophisticated trellis systems, canopy management and low cropping levels have resulted in exceptional wines, displaying intense varietal flavour and elegance. The winemaking reflects modern adaptations of traditional techniques, such as barrel fermentation in French oak, and gentle plunging of open top fermentors, ensuring all the intense cool climate flavours and colours are extracted.
