Brookland Valley estate
wines are grown on the sunny ridge of an ancient landform through which a small brook known as the Wilyabrup flows to the nearby sea
The spectacular valley, set against a gently undulating landscape, offers protection from the winds and warmth for the vines, a perfect viticultural microclimate. Vineyard management, built on principles of sustainability and incorporating agricultural craft that relies on a respect for the soil and the environment, rewards Brookland Valley with wines of quality and elegance.
 Brookland Valley

But, there is more to Brookland Valley than its estate. It also controls 150ha of smaller vineyards that are dotted throughout the 120km length of the Margaret River wine region. These vines, also grown under the Brookland Valley principles of sustainability and respect, allow Brookland Valley winemakers to choose from a sheet of regional flavours to produce the symphony known as the Verse1 wines.

The Brookland Valley story begins in 1983 when the Jones family, seeking a return to life in the country, inspected a pioneering dairy property at Willyabrup. The family's plans to become cheese makers were quickly diverted into wine making after they witnessed the growth of the fledgling Margaret River wine region that was in those days starting to make its presence known on the world stage. In 1984 Malcolm engaged the services of two Eastern States vineyard consultants, Brian Crozer and Tony Jordan, to assist with the planning and planting of the vineyard.

Malcolm has learnt to combine his historical scientific data with visual observation to read the health of the soil and the vines

Establishing the vines was a family affair, with Quentin very much involved in the establishment of the vineyard alongside Malcolm. In 1997 Australia's second biggest wine company BRL Hardy, was seeking a boutique Margaret River winery producing premium wines to add to its portfolio. It was agreed with the proviso that Malcolm and Dee continue to operate the business ensuring continuity of the commitment to quality and excellence that has always driven them.

Since Brookland Valley lead the way in the mid-1980s with a technology-driven approach to viticulture, things have changed dramatically. The winemakers dig holes to check water levels rather than relying on electronic moisture meters, walking hundreds of kilometres inspecting individual vines, shoot thinning, reducing foliage and tasting the ripening fruit. Vines and the soil in which they grow are regarded as the most treasured possession and are treated with respect.

The Brookland Valley Estate vineyard is close-planted and flows down the valley from the sun-denched north-facing slopes to the more gentle flats along the banks of the Willyabrup Brook. Spur pruning was adopted some time ago and in essence it is treating the vines like irrigation systems with the trunk being the main pipe that divides into two. From these two branches the annual pruning ensures that 26 shoots will develop into fruiting canes.

Journeys End Vineyards
are located in South Australia, a region noted for producing sunshine in a glass, wines with superb, ripe fruit flavours that the world has fallen in love with
Whilst Journeys End Vineyards has a traditional Australian spread of wine styles, the wines do not come from the same vineyard site. There are of course good reasons for this, and they form the basis of Journeys End’s winemaking philosophy. Australia now has sufficient acreage planted, in a diverse range of sites to be able to confidently say that one district produces better quality grapes on a consistent basis than another district, and furthermore within each district there are specific, small, discreet sites that produce exceptional wines from only one grape variety. This is the notion of terroir, the search for the best sites suited to a specific grape variety. It is these very specific sites that Journeys End Vineyards is concerned with.
 Journeys End

Having located the right piece of terroir, skilled vineyard management is then paramount, there can be no denying that 90% of the quality of any wine is made in the vineyard. Quite simply, great grapes make great wine. In order to achieve the desired flavour profiles of each grape variety, yields are kept low, irrigation is minimal and vineyards are managed in an environmentally sustainable manner with minimum use of chemicals. Uncompromising dedication to this philosophy means that Journeys End Vineyards can consistently offer wine lovers maximum flavour for their dollar.

Journeys End winemaker, Ben Riggs likes to run a number of different types of ferments, which also gives him additional blending options. In the winemaking process, there are no fixed rules as to the amount of new or old oak that is used. French, American, Russian or other. Each season demands a different proportion of new and old oak and different degrees of charring or even hot water bending of the staves. Consequently, a variety of top quality barrels are selected to enhance the fruit of each wine and add further layers of complexity.

Journeys End wines are made to improve with bottle age, not just to keep. The maturation period will depend on the wine style chosen, and the cellaring condition that the wines are kept under. The suggested cellaring time always errs on the side of caution, and it is recommended that wines are drunk whilst the fruit is still alive, rather than wait for a long period only to find that the tertiary flavours have overshadowed the fruit and that the distinctive qualities of terroir are difficult to distinguish.

A graduate of Roseworthy (in 1985), Journeys End winemaker Ben Riggs has made a major contribution to regional wine industry activities having served ten years as a board member of McLaren Vale Winemakers Inc. Three of those years saw Ben in the role of Chairman. He also chaired the McLaren Vale Wine Show over a five-year period. As a winemaker, Ben achieved Bushing King status in 2000. This unique award recognises the maker of the best wine at the McLaren Vale Wine Show.

Wines made by Ben have achieved considerable Wine Show Awards success including winning the first two Great Australian Shiraz Challenges. More than 20 trophies have been won and in 1993, Wirra Wirra 1991 Angelus was declared the winner of the Sydney International Top 100 wine awards. Ben has had 21 years of winemaking experience, with the last 14 years being at Wirra Wirra where he made such great wines as RSW Shiraz and Angelus, which are without doubt Australian benchmark wines.

The Ingoldby family
has been associated with McLaren Vale winemaking heritage for more than a hundred years
Since inaugural release Ingoldby have enjoyed a stunning run of success at national wine shows. It was in 1973 that Jim Ingoldby finally adorned the label of traditional McLaren Vale wines with the family name. From the outset Jim and his Ingoldby wines were unashamedly proud of their McLaren Vale heritage. The region is often referred to as the middle palate of the Australian wine industry. The Ingoldby's innate skill at managing vines and soils which they have husbanded for generations yields splendid fruit with concentrated flavours. Their fruit has been the secret ingredient in many of Australia's most cherished wines. Ingoldby's Cabernet is highly valued and still sought by some of the nation's most popular brands.
 Ingoldby

Ingoldby based its success on two classic red varieties that represent brilliantly the unique qualities of the McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. From 1986, the Ingoldby reds began a stunning run of success at the show level, and the Cabernet Sauvignon has been highly acclaimed to this day.

Ingoldby operates vineyards which have been in the family for generations, with additional fruit provided by long term contract growers. The wines exhibit rich fruit flavours that are enhanced by the judicious use of new and aged oak. Ingoldby has also established a range of white wines that impress McLaren Vale's traditional red wine enthusiasts.

It is always a special moment to have hard work recognised and for people to acknowledge that your wine stands out above all others in it's class. Ingoldby couldn't be prouder of their winemaking team. And once you have tried Ingoldby wines, we know you will want to share the secret with friends.

As McLaren Vale is best known for Cabernet and Shiraz, Ingoldby has been traditionally associated with its full flavoured reds. Ingoldby's flagship wine, the Golden Vine Reserve Shiraz has been the most widely acclaimed release within the Ingoldby repertoire.

With the the success of Ingoldby Chardonnay taking top Gold trophy at the Royal Queensland Wine Show, they have demonstrated their talents at producing a range of extremely high quality wines against traditional expectations that full flavoured reds are what the region does best. The outstanding fruit driven flavours of the 2004 Chardonnay wowed judges at the Bendigo Bank Royal Queensland Wine Show securing the highest accolade in its class winning Top Gold and 2 further trophies. Proudly crafted in the traditional McLaren Vale style, the 2004 possesses an intensely flavoured fruit palate derived from a long and dry vintage.

Gibson's BarossaVale Wines
is a small family owned winery nestled at the northern end of the Barossa Valley in South Australia
A specialist producer of limited quantities of premium table wines, it is fast garnering a reputation as a reliable producer of richly flavoured and complex wine. Owned by Rob Gibson and wife Anne, the tiny operation produces a mere 4000 cases of wine. Fruit is sourced from predominantly estate grown fruit with a small amount coming from contracted grower fruit for added diversity come blending time.
 Gibson BarossaVale

Around sixty tones of predominantly shiraz and merlot, along with small amounts of mourvedre, grenache, viognier, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot, are harvested to produce the wines.

From pruning through to budburst, flowering, fruit-set, veraison, harvest, fermentation, pressing, barrel aging, blending to bottling, the whole 'winegrowing' process is carefully tended by Rob Gibson. His university education in both oenology and viticulture, combined with his 23 years experience at the prestigious Penfolds Wines and a natural curiosity of all things, have led to an intimate understanding of the many factors that can influence the creation of wine.

The wines crafted at the small 'BarossaVale' estate are a reflection of winemaker Bob Gibson's accumulated knowledge, experience and natural curiosity

Rob, or 'Gibbo' as he is affectionately known by his friends, has managed to engage the tireless efforts of his wife Anne, as well as the energy of their five children; Kelly, Kim, Adam, Sam and Abel in the family business. Anne is responsible for all that is involved in getting the wines from the winery into the bottles and then out into the world, a list of duties that normally requires the resources of an entire staff.

Over the last few years, Rob has developed a number of different wines; amongst them Shiraz, Sparling Merlot, and his signature Merlot. Most of them have been made from selected vines from his own plantings in the Northern Barossa. Rob's wines are divided into 3 different ranges. The BarossaVale Range is the winery's original range, featuring the highly successful Merlots. All the wines are highly rated, and have done well in recent reviews, including Runner-up in the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy for the 2003 Shiraz.

The Gibson Reserve Range is Rob's Signature Range. All the vines are highly rated. They have been very carefully selected by Rob from all the vines picked and all the Barrels made in the vintage.
