Marius Wines is
a small premium wine producer in McLaren Vale
There is now a small, but growing, number of wine consumers who recognise Marius Wines as a best value producer of premium McLaren Vale Shiraz.
 Marius

Marius' winemakers are always striving to improve the quality of the fruit from their exquisite single vineyard and the grapes are now sequentially hand-picked from the various sections, over a period of 3-4 weeks, to ensure that the fruit is as close as possible to perfect at the time of harvest.

Marius Wines are now made at winemaker Mark Day's boutique winery at Blewitt Springs. Small open fermenters, traditional basket pressing and extended barrel fermentation are the tools of his craft. Mark is an integral part of our success.

"Four Star**** Winery!" -James Halliday

The Marius vineyard, which looks out across the McLaren Vale / Willunga basin and out to the Gulf of St. Vincent is blessed with a mild temperate climate and complex ironstone soils. The precious grapegrowing parcel is situated on rising ground to the south-east of McLaren Vale township, ideally positioned to take advantage of both the maritime climatic influence and the cooling gully breezes on summer evenings. The vineyard is small, being only four acres of Shiraz.

The soils range from clay through ironstone and limestone to alluvial gravels. The philosophy at Marius is to grow flavour and produce powerful wines. This is achieved by passionate and fastidious vineyard practices combining to produce low yields of small bunches of flavoursome small berries with a high skin to juice ratio.

All fruit is hand picked and this is done sequentially over approximately three weeks to ensure that all the grapes are as near as possible to perfect when picked. Mid-rows are not cultivated or tilled, the natural grasses and weeds are slashed, no pesticides are used and the industrious worm population is growing rapidly.

Since 1851, The
House of Seppelt has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking, consolidating a reputation for innovation and quality
From its beginnings in the Barossa Valley in 1851, Seppelt has pioneered vineyard plantings in regions of southern and eastern Australia. Constantly innovating, Seppelt is creating new wine styles, new packaging and new ideas that position this outstanding winery as a world leader. Seppelt's Great Western Winery is famous for The Drives (the labyrinthine catacombs of sparkling cellars) and home to the two champion Shiraz wines, St. Peters of Great Western, and the world-renowned Show Sparkling Shiraz.
 Seppelt

Great Western is now home to the Seppelt Victorian Premium Reserve range. These wines are carefully made at Great Western from vineyards in all the best wine growing areas of Victoria: The Yarra Valley, the Strathbogie Ranges, the Victorian Alps, Mornington Peninsula, Drumborg and of course, Great Western. It's also the place where Australia's most awarded sparkling wines are produced. Great Western is part of a wine grape-growing region which includes the Grampians in the West and Avoca in the East. The first grapes were planted in the latter part of last century as the gold mining boom receded and people looked for a more permanent means of livelihood.

Originally there were many small vineyards clustered around Great Western but by the early part of this century overseas and local demand for wine was declining and only the larger organised winemakers were able to compete. The memory of some of the early vineyards is perpetuated in the picturesque names still used on Seppelt labels, such as Salinger, Moyston and Chalambar - a tribute to the early pioneer vignerons.

Seppelt Great Western achieved much early fame from the variety known as Irvine's white (otherwise known as Ondenc) and small plantings still remain today. However the Great Western region has also forged a long and successful association with Shiraz. It is recognised that this part of Victoria holds some of the oldest plantings of pre-phylloxera root stocks of Shiraz. Today, Shiraz still forms the cornerstone variety of the House of Seppelt and has seen this region gain wide recognition as a producer of some of Australia's finest and most distinctive Shiraz. The highly acclaimed Shiraz from the Seppelt St. Peters Vineyard is a perfect example of a classic shiraz from the Great Western region.

The St. Peters Vineyard has been the spiritual home of the Seppelt Great Western vineyards for over a century. The heavy clay soils, cool summers and mature, low yielding vines combine to produce fruit with an intensity of flavour matched by a refined elegance, clear regional character and the structure necessary for extended cellaring. As wine writer Jeremy Oliver puts it "At its best, Shiraz from Great Western is perhaps the most drinkable in Australia. In boxing parlance it's a middleweight: still able to pack a punch of flavour, yet built for endurance."

The Drumborg Vineyard was planted in 1964 for the express purpose of providing Seppelt with a resource of cool climate fruit for premium quality table and sparkling wines. The Drumborg vineyard remains one of the most southern vineyards in mainland Australia. The varieties planted reflect the cool climate nature of the site with Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay the principle varieties along with Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. The Glenlofty vineyard, 53km east of the Great Western Winery, was planted in 1995 to produce premium cool climate Shiraz and Chardonnay. The soil type is predominantly clay loam and the rolling hills, typical of the Great Western region, make this vineyard one of Seppelt's most attractive. Glenlofty is also producing parcels of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Roussanne, Marsanne, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.

A bottle of
good wine can help solve many problems, such were the thoughts of Norm Doole and Drew Dowie as they watched the sun rise after enduring a cold, all-night session harvesting some of their fruit from the difficult 1995 vintage
Seeing their grapes being trucked away to other wineries and frustrated at not being in control of their fruit from that point, the two opened a bottle of red wine over breakfast and decided then to form a partnership, the purpose of which was to take charge of all aspects of growing grapes, making, bottling and selling their own wine.
 Dowie Doole

Enlisting the help of another friend, wine marketer Leigh Gilligan, to write a business plan, cajoling legendary local winemaker Brian Light into making the wine and briefing renowned designer Barrie Tucker to create a label – the fledgling Dowie Doole wine business was formed in late 1995.

As wine writer Huon Hooke so aptly put it – "not even the most coke addled advertising executive could have come up with the name Dowie Doole, but this name now enjoys a growing reputation in Australia and overseas as a consistently excellent producer of Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz".

Committed to growing and making classic regional McLaren Vale wines, Dowie Doole utilise predominantly estate-grown fruit which is crushed, fermented, and matured at Boar’s Rock winery in McLaren Vale under Brian Light’s guidance. Leigh Gilligan, who joined as a partner in 1998, now manages the day-to-day operations, while Norm Doole oversees the Norjan vineyard in the heart of McLaren Vale and Drew Dowie’s wife Lulu Lunn takes care of viticultural operations at Tintookie Vineyard in the hills above McLaren Vale at Blewitt Springs.

The source Tintookie Vineyard, owned by Drew Dowie and Lulu Lunn is situated 12 km north-east of McLaren Vale, close to the southern Mount Lofty Ranges, the property is medium to steeply sloping to both the east and west. At 16.6 hectares the site lies at 180-200 metres above sea level, colder and wetter than the floor of the valley in winter and cooler in summer. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Chenin Blanc vines are grown to sand over reddish semi-porous clay with ironstone pebbles throughout.

The Norjan Vineyard owned and operated by Norm and Jane Doole was acquired in 1993, the property is located 3km west of the township of McLaren Vale on gently undulating land which was the site of one of South Australia’s earliest plantings of wine grapes. An area of 26.3 hectares at a lowly 55-65 metres above sea level grows Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc planted to sandy loam over limestone. The climes here are very mediterranean, coastal sea breezes, dry summers with warm days and cool nights.

Knappstein is one
of the most recognisable and popular Clare Valley wineries
Knappstein are a small producer of premium quality wines, who manage their own vineyards. Redeveloped around the historic Enterprise Brewery building at the heart of Clare township, and deeply connected to the community and cultural life of Clare. The Knappstein name has been involved in the wine business in Clare since 1895. The winery was originally founded by Tim Knappstein as Enterprise Wines, a name utilised for the premium Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard and thus honouring the Knappstein heritage as early winemakers connected with Clare for well over 100 years.
 Knappstein

The Clare Valley lies 130km north of Adelaide and 60km east of the Gulf St. Vincent perched high amid the North Mount Lofty Ranges. As one of Australia's longest established regions, with plantings by the Jesuits dating back to 1851, the Clare Valley is also one of the most defined regions in terms of climate, geology, soils, varieties, viticultural techniques and quality of wine.

The north / south oriented Clare Valley is approximately 40km long and 14km wide with the bottom of the valley lying at about 250 metres above sea level and its eastern escarpment rising to over 580 metres. As a result significant differences exist between vineyards in their altitude, latitude and individual topography. The latter is reflected in many mesmerising contour vineyards which most clearly depict this unique region.

Over the past 20 years the Knappstein winemakers have developed an almost intuitive understanding of the Clare Valley. Central to the understanding of the affinity certain grape varieties have with the region, are the efforts over the past 10 years to ensure a natural environment under which the vines can find their innate balance. Hand pruning of all the vines, and hand picking of the delicate varieties have been obvious choices for the winemakers. A more subtle environmental choice has been the planting of permanent rye grass between rows. This has not only eliminated unnecessary compaction of the ground by plough machinery and prevented the erosion of the unique mosaic of soils, but also caused distinct changes in the meso-climate.

The winery's decision to un-graft some Chardonnay in preference of its 30 year old Shiraz rootstock was an unfashionable choice in the 1990s. By allowing the vines to find their natural balance, Knappstein has best been able to understand the quality and characteristics of the different sites. Of these, three 30 year old vineyards have excelled with unique characteristics and calibre for their respective variety.

In 1971, Knappstein's Ackland Vineyard was planted at the cool altitudes of 420-450 metres overlooking nearby Watervale township. Its east and north-east facing aspect protects the vines from the prevailing winds off the Great Southern Ocean. Thus whilst capturing the full morning sun to develop strong lime and citrus flavours the high natural acids are greatly enhanced by the cold night-time temperatures of this altitude. The slate and shaley rock abundant in the Ackland vineyard soils play a crucial role in the aromatic development of the Riesling, whilst the delicate floral nuances are unique to the handful of vineyards within this Watervale area. Further north on a slightly warmer site, located on the Clare Valley's famous Terra Rosa soils over limestone, is Knappstein's Enterprise Vineyard. The low-yielding Cabernet vines of this vineyard bear fruit with incredibly bold concentration of flavour, distinctive mint-eucalypt flavours with fine natural tannins and striking acidity derived from the iron rich soils and the limestone geology. Planted in 1969, the calibre and typicity of the vineyard has shone through consistently over time, and now is the source of the Knappstein Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This vineyard has produced all the Enterprise Cabernet Sauvignon since 1974.
