Dog Ridge is
located at the base of The Southern Mount Lofty Ranges over looking the McLaren Vale wine region
DogRidge Vineyards employ modern viticultural practices which optimise sun exposure and canopy health, resulting in ripe fruit of intense colour and quality. This desirable combination has led to the creation of wines that express outstanding depth of colour, aromatic elegance and richness of flavour.
 Dog Ridge

DogRidge is a family owned operation of 140 acres (56HA). We have many different vineyards ranging in age from young 2004 graftings of Viognier to some of the oldest bush vines remaining in the region today. At the McLaren Flat vineyards, DogRidge boasts several 1940’s plantings of Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon that form the basis of the premium bottled product.

The soils vary considerably over a small area giving us the opportunity to select small parcels of the best fruit which reflect the terrior of each site adding to the uniqueness of the finished wines. DogRidge is also a respected grower for several premium McLaren Vale wine companies and is a current member of the Wine Grapes Australia group of premium grape growers.

DogRidge the name comes from an old vigorous grape vine rootstock now no longer used in modern viticulture

The name Dogridge was adopted as it suits the winemaking family's extreme love for Curly Coat Retrievers and the position of the family home on a sandy ridge in McLaren Flat. DogRidge can be one or two words depending on your mood. Either way, it’s lovely wine however you say it!

The DogRidge winemakers are proud of their environmental record. Property management is focused on sustainability and includes minimizing impact on the environment, the incorporation of biodiversity in the vineyards, management and renovation of remnant areas of native vegetation, recycling both oak and green waste and conserving valuable water resources. Cleaning semi-trailer loads of rubbish from creeks at DogRidge “THE DIGS” Vineyard, removing feral non-native vegetation and rebuilding eroded creek banks with native species.

DogRidge Duck Chase vineyard was established in 2001 on a severely neglected elevated site overlooking McLaren Vale on the edge of the Onkaparinga Gorge National Park. The site was cleared again of all feral species and the valuable ancient gravelly soils brought back to life in preparation for the establishment of this state of the art vineyard. In planning for this, significant open space has been revegetated by planting 6,000 trees and shrubs, all local native species, which has introduced some biodiversity into the project.

Shaw + Smith
began over a long lunch in 1989 when cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith decided to realise a long held dream to make wine together
Shaw + Smith's aim is to make contemporary, high quality wines that stand amongst the best of their type, both nationally and internationally. For a wine to be released under the Shaw + Smith label it must be an oustanding example of it's type, from grapes grown in the Adelaide Hills. For the first ten years Shaw + Smith focussed on Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, and now also make small quantities of Riesling, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. White varieties are well suited to the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills, while Pinot Noir and Shiraz perform well in carefully chosen sites.
 Shaw Smith

Martin Shaw is a winemaker with considerable international experience. He graduated from the Roseworthy College in 1981 and worked with Brian Croser at Petaluma for eight years prior to setting up the 'Flying Winemakers' network in France, Spain, Chile, Australia and New Zealand. In addition to Shaw + Smith, Martin still consults at number of companies within Australia and overseas. Aside from being a wine producer, Michael Hill Smith is a wine judge and consultant and contributes to various wine and food publications. In 1988, Hill Smith became the first Australian to pass the rigorous Master of Wine examination in London.

The Adelaide Hills is one of the most exciting wine regions. Although grapes were planted as early as 1839, it was not until the early 1980's that modern viticulture emerged. Today there are 54 Adelaide Hills wine labels with over 3000 ha of vineyard planted and more planned for the future. The region is strikingly beautiful with its patchwork of forests, farms, orchards and vineyards.

Because of it's distinctive cool climate, the grapes grown in the Hills have wonderful fruit composition, particularly in depth and spectrum of flavour, natural acid balance and overall finesse. Grape varieties best suited to the Adelaide Hills are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are more marginal, but perform well on certain sites with some experimentation with Viognier, Nebbiolo and Tempranillo.

In 1994 Shaw + Smith planted 28-ha of vines at Woodside in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard is the home of Shaw and Smith's single vineyard M3 Chardonnay and consistently produces outstanding chardonnay fruit. The balance of the vineyard is planted to sauvignon blanc and is a vital component of the estate Sauvignon Blanc blend each year. The M3 Vineyard is close planted and uses vertical shoot positioning, the canopy configuration that has been so successful in the region. The soil is sandy loam over red-yellow clay with some shale.

In September 1999 Shaw + Smith purchased 46 ha on Jones Road between Balhannah and Hahndorf. The property is blessed with wonderful views of Mt Lofty, is ideally suited to viticulture and was planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Average altitude 420 metres and all grapes are hand picked. The soil is free draining sandy loam over red clay with underlying quartzite and shale. As well as being home for the winery, the Balhannah property is the site of the single vineyard Riesling and Pinot Noir wines and contributes to the fruit sourced for the Sauvignon Blanc. Just behind the winery, on a prized northerly aspect, a parcel has recently been planted to Shiraz. The soil is sandy loam over red clay with underlying quartzite and shale.

From humble beginnings
in the Northland kauri gum fields early last century, Babich Wines have become one of New Zealands most respected wineries
Today Babich is one of New Zealand's largest family-owned wine companies. Babich Wines' strongly-held winemaking philosophy lies at the heart of their approach to producing interesting wines.
 Babich

A number of viticulture techniques are used to improve grape quality. These include thinning grapes to improve quality and flavour. Removing some of the leaves exposes grapes to more sun, thus enhancing ripening and flavour development. All vineyards in which Babich have an interest are situated on free-draining soils. Computer controlled irrigation systems are therefore employed to maintain vine health and maximise grape quality.

Decisions on harvesting are made by the winemakers and viticulturists and can be influenced by weather, and the wine style envisaged. Small crops of the highest quality grapes might be hand-harvested into small bins and whole bunch pressed, whereas mechanical harvesters are employed for larger volumes or to beat threatening weather.

Henderson, in West Auckland, has a winemaking legacy dating from the turn of the century

Auckland is the base of many New Zealand wineries and is still the country's 7th most heavily planted wine region. Chardonnay and premium red varieties such as pinot noir and pinotage flourish in the relative warmth and the loam-clay soils of Babich Wine's 28 HA vineyard in Henderson. Hawke's Bay has a tradition of quality table winemaking stretching back to the nineteenth century. The region is blessed with a superb climate for viticulture, being sufficiently cool to ripen grapes slowly, yet warm and sunny enough to promote optimum fruit ripening.

The Hawke's Bay region has built up an outstanding reputation for its deep-flavoured, slowly evolving chardonnays, robust, tropical sauvignon blancs and stylish, scented cabernet and merlot-based reds. In recent times it has become renowned for varieties like gewurztraminer, pinotage and syrah. The 16 hectare Fernhill Vineyard, planted in light sandy-loam soils, enjoys sheltered, warm conditions perfect for ripening grapes with elegant fruit flavours.

The 38 hectare Gimblett Road Vineyard, planted in exceptionally free-draining shingle country yields small crops of grapes harbouring rich, concentrated flavours. Combining the French concept of terroir with modern day thinking to define, protect and market wine, Gimblett Gravels has created a designation of their district according to a tightly specified soil type. The gravely soils laid down by the old Ngaruroro River, which were exposed after a huge flood in the 1870's, make the Gimblett Gravels distinctive. In summer and autumn, the district is up to three degrees Celsius warmer during the day compared with most other areas in the Hawke's Bay. The evenings are also warmer because of thermal conductivity in the stony soils.

There are some
signs of maturity at Tin Shed Estate in the Barossa, but the label is still primarily about encouraging the enjoyment of food and wine
The Tin Shed Wines adventure began in 1997 when Peter Clarke’s passion for food and wine overflowed one night in the company of friend and viticulturist Andrew Wardlaw. Peter is head chef and part-owner of the award-winning Vintners Bar & Grill near Angaston.
 Tin Shed

The following year, the pair combined their talents in a small tin shed to create their first wine. This Shiraz was mollycoddled from the outset – handpicked and hand nurtured using wild fermentation and minimal additions. The undivided attention the fruit and resulting wine received paid off, with the Single Wire Shiraz receiving accolades from wine lovers and wine writers alike.

Despite the temptation to accelerate production, Tin Shed Wines chose instead to concentrate on creating wines that were subtle and allowed the real character of the vineyard to dominate. Rather than produce larger volumes of one particular wine, Peter and Andrew pooled their expertise and played with a new blend of Mourvedre, Shiraz and Grenache.

The success of this second wine led to other inspired decisions, such as the Wild Bunch Riesling in 2002, again a result of the same techniques – wild ferment, minimal additions and loads of attention. Following this the Melting Pot Shiraz, then one particular “fruit salad” block, inspired the production of the All Day Rosé.

Tin Shed Wines now boasts five labels. Each of them demands an equal amount of nurturing, so total production is still limited to 5000 cases each year. These wines were designed to be unique and are continually being hailed as such by those who have the privilege of tasting them.

In 2006, Peter and wife Anne, took sole ownership of Tin Shed Wines. Enter viticulturist/winemaker Nathan Norman, who was attracted to the winery because of its attention to detail. The Tin Shed dream has not faltered over the years. The small team is still intent on mollycoddling its wines, to produce real vineyard flavours that complement food without overpowering it.
