High in the
hills surrounding the Barossa Valley lies Pewsey Vale, Eden Valley's first vineyard
Pewsey Vale's founder, Englishman Joseph Gilbert, arrived in South Australia after seeing an advertisement in the London Times announcing the vessel, The Buckinghamshire's imminent departure for the colony. Land was up for grabs and Joseph wasted no time grabbing it, just four months after his arrival - 15,000 acres of rugged high country in the then-wild and remote Barossa ranges, some 40 miles from Adelaide. By 1841, just two years after his arrival, Joseph, the 38 year old son of a well-heeled English landowner, had built a fine homestead and planted Pewsey Vale's first grapevines. The vines were of a table grape variety, but an idea was starting to take shape...
 Pewsey Vale

In 1847 Joseph planted a one-acre vineyard, establishing Eden Valley's pioneer vineyard and one of Australia's first high altitude, cool climate vineyards. At the same time, several hundred feet below, Johann Gramp was planting the Barossa Valley's first commercial vineyard. The pioneering Joseph Gilbert trialled many different grape varieties at Pewsey Vale, later distributing cuttings to aspiring vignerons in surrounding areas. His experimental approach to viticulture and winemaking helped lay the foundations for the wine industry that would become so important to the region.

During the 1920s, Pewsey Vale succumbed to the fate of so many of Australia's early vineyards, falling into disuse as a result of the severe economic hardship of the Great Depression. The vineyard's potential was rediscovered at a time when only the history books recorded the existence of the original vineyards. In 1961, Pewsey Vale's then-owner, Geoffrey Angas Parsons, became aware that his property had once incorporated the region's earliest vineyard. Excited by his discovery, he wasted no time in paying a visit to his good friend Wyndham Hill Smith of Yalumba with a proposal to restore the Pewsey Vale vineyard.

Parson's proposal was timely indeed, coming at a time when several of the larger, more innovative wine companies were considering potential vineyard sites with cooler ripening conditions than could be found on the Barossa Valley floor. Wyndham Hill Smith, convinced of the potential of the area, needed no further persuading and work at Pewsey Vale began soon after. Riesling was planted as a matter of course - initially 56 hectares planted in contoured rows.

With an altitude varying between 485 metres and 500 metres, Pewsey Vale sits 250 metres above the Barossa Valley floor. The cooler temperatures found at this height encourage a longer ripening period which extends well into autumn. This longer ripening period is essential for producing superior quality grapes with exceptional flavour and character - hallmarks of Pewsey Vale wines. Block to block variation enables winemakers to select from separate parcels of fruit to tailor wines to the Pewsey Vale style, ensuring consistency from vintage to vintage.

Pewsey Vale is not an easy vineyard to manage. Lean and hungry soils which limit the vigour of the vines, the high altitude and the vineyard's specific micro-climate have necessitated the adoption of specialised viticultural management. Yet, it is this unpredictable and demanding nature that is the very essence of the vineyard's special appeal. Ensuring a natural balance is of paramount importance and this is reflected in every aspect of the vineyard's management.

Trevor was also employed by St. Hallett as a contract winemaker during eight vintage seasons.
 Trevor Jones

Since returning from the Hunter Valley, Trevor has been successful in numerous wine shows, most notably the 1993 Barossa Valley Wine Show, where he was awarded three trophies, among which was the highly coveted Most Outstanding Barossa / Eden Valley Dry Red for his 1990 Cabernet Merlot. In 1994 he was equally successful, being awarded the trophy for Best Wine Small Producer (crushing less than 500 tonnes of grapes) for his 1994 Chardonnay.

Some of Trevor's most notable accolades have come from Robert Parker, who awarded Jones two perfect 100 point scores (the first time ever assigned by The Wine Advocate) for the Old Barossa Tokay and the Barossa Liqueur Shiraz Tawny. These awards were recently followed by Best Boutique Riesling for the 1998 Eden Valley Riesling, awarded by Boutique Wines of Australia 2000. Well done Trevor!

Semillon from Australia’s
Hunter Valley meets Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough, to create a blend offering the best of both worlds, a perfectly balanced wine with an appropriate name
Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are considered a perfect match because one compliments the other, bringing all the desired flavours and complexity of a great wine together. Semillon adds the texture, body and richness to Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc offers the structure, raciness and backbone to Semillon. A cross-Tasman marriage of components, blended to create a wine offering the best of both worlds, makes a perfectly balanced drop with an appropriate name ‚Äď See Saw.
 See Saw

See Saw combines the talents of three winemakers who met in the Hunter Valley and who ten years later have reunited to collaborate on this exciting new project. Andrew Margan of Margan in the Hunter Valley and his former assistant winemaker Hamish MacGowan, now of Angus the Bull, were inspired to unite the best of Australian Semillon with the best of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to create a new wine in the popular Semillon Sauvignon Blanc category.

Andrew and Hamish called on friend Sarah-Kate Dineen, formerly of Tempus Two in the Hunter Valley, to provide the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Sarah Kate (and winemaker husband Dan Dineen) returned home to New Zealand where they opened their own winery, Maude Wines. Andrew provided his prized Hunter Valley Semillon and it was up to Hamish to turn the idea into a reality and to perfect the final blend. Hamish conceived the name See Saw, developed the brand’s funky label and completed the business plan that would take the new wine to market.

They shared a stylistic goal which was to produce a wine with genuine complexity that also offered pure and simple drinking enjoyment. The name See Saw reflects the balance of this particular blend and also the collaboration of three friends from two regions with one common goal. This is about real people with real wine experience who are passionate about what they do and who are not afraid to push traditional boundaries. So chill it down, drink it up, enjoy it now.

Freycinet Vineyard is
situated on Tasmania's sunny East Coast, approximately halfway between Launceston and Hobart. This artisinal boutique estate produces the finest, cool climate wines
Freycinet Vineyard overlooks the spectacular Freycinet National Park area that includes the tiny holiday resort of Coles Bay and the world renowned Freycinet Peninsula. Situated on the 42¬į latitudinal line, Freycinet has a unique microclimate.

The long growing season, which extends into May, combines high sunshine hours with 1250 heat degree days, winter rains with no frost, to produce excellent quality cool climate fruit. The vineyard is a hundred metres above sea level and lies just twenty kilometres from the coast, being very much under maritime influence.

Inspired by the tremendous opportunities along the East Coast, Geoff and Susie Bull established Freycinet Vineyard in 1980. They were early pioneers in a new region which years later revealed exciting potential for the highest quality wines. The region now boasts over a dozen vineyards.

Daughter Lindy Bull and winemaker/ partner Claudio Radenti have taken over the family tradition of gently handcrafting the wines. Lindy and Claudio are passionate about their nine hectare vineyard and are extremely focused on maintaining quality.

The philosophy around Freycinet is to keep things simple, thereby allowing the vineyard to express itself without extra winemaking influence. The aim is to make the wines as big and as beautiful as possible. At harvest the fully ripened fruit has maximum flavour, which is very carefully retained throughout the winemaking process via a gentle and minimalist handling.

The techniques of barrel fermentation and lees stirring, maloactic fermentation and rote fermenters are utilised to produce wines of exceptional colour and flavour. Extended maturation in tight grain French oak casks for twelve to eighteen months completes the winemaking process. Radenti Champagne is crafted to methode traditionelle, an assemblage of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, reflecting the idyllic conditions of Tasmania's cooler climates in the production of premium sparkling wines.
