Two Hands Brave Faces GMS 2015 FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, Two Hands have been very well received by a healthy stream of accolades. Notable reviewer Robert M. Parker anointed Two Hands as the finest negociant operation south of the equator. Grenache, Mourverdre and Shiraz, Barossa through and through. Buoyant raspberry, red cherry characters with a restrained savoury palate, grainy tannins and delicately integrated oak. A serious food wine that shows what a wonderful marriage these three varietals make judiciously balanced with harmony in mind.
Situated in the
exclusive circle encompassing some of Margaret River’s most outstanding wineries, Xanadu is a true pioneer of the region with a long history of producing wines with distinct character
Xanadu was established by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman, who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. At the time, the potential of Margaret River as one of the world’s finest wine-producing regions was only just being considered. John established one of the region’s earlier vineyards planting his first vines in 1977. A lover of literature and inspired by the similarities between the environment at Xanadu and words of Coleridge; Dr Lagan named the vineyard after the home of Kubla Khan.
 Xanadu

In an idyllic setting in the very South West corner of Australia, the 85 hectares of vines on the original Xanadu Wine Estate flourish in the rich, free draining gravel soils of the Margaret River region. In this near-perfect environment for viticulture, this unique maritime climate enjoys an abundant supply of water and is sheltered by forests of magnificent marri trees. A state-of-the-art winery / restaurant and cellar door has been constructed, with the extensive use of local granite and gneissic rocks, excavated during the planting of the original vineyard. These low yielding, carefully handled vines produce a range of varieties under the labels Secession, Xanadu and Lagan Reserve.

Enjoying a strong family focus since its inception almost 30 years ago, the company was listed on the ASX in April 2001. More recently, Xanadu Wines has returned to family ownership having been purchased by the Rathbone Family in August 2005. The Rathbone family remain focused on producing premium wines that reflect the true characteristics of the Margaret River region.

On the rolling slopes of Xanadu’s vineyard, vines flourish in the rich, free draining gravel soils of the Margaret River region, where they are fed by an abundant supply of pristine water, and sheltered by forests of magnificent marri trees. It's a near perfect environment for viticulture.

The ocean strongly defines the climate in Margaret River, which is classed as 'west coast Mediterranean' featuring warm to hot summers and mild to wet winters. The majority of Margaret River's approximate 1100mm of rain falls between April and October, and with an average rainfall of around 50mm from December to February. This usually means a dry ripening and harvesting season, come vintage time in March and April. The summer daytime temperatures are usually kept below 32 degrees Celsius, while daytime winter temperatures can vary from around 11 degrees to around 18 degrees Celsius. The extreme temperatures, humidity and frosts are kept at bay by the influence of the Leeuwin current of the near by Indian Ocean.

The vineyards of Xanadu are situated on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge formed from an ancient granite landmass 2000 million years old. The soils are mostly formed in situ as a result of long periods of weathering. Granite decomposes to form iron-rich clay, which precipitates to the surface forming laterite gravel loams, the best vine growing soils in the region.

Giovanni Maglieri arrived
in McLaren Vale in 1958 and worked in the vineyards of Pirramimma Wines
Five years later, Giovanni’s 17-year-old son, Steve, arrived in Australia. Then, in 1965, the pair bought 40 hectares of McLaren Vale scrub and set about the task of clearing it and planting vines. In 1972 Steve started his own winery Gully Wines, which he renamed Maglieri Wines in 1977.
 Maglieri

Steve wanted to create distinctive and characterful McLaren Vale wines, and when John Loxton joined Maglieri in 1981, the pair was able to establish their own style. The quality of their wines improved steadily, and by the early 1990s Maglieri was well positioned at the top of the McLaren Vale tree. John Loxton was judged to have made the Best Red Wine in McLaren Vale in 1992, and was made Bushing King. Further show successes came throughout Australia and overseas throughout that decade.

One of Maglieri’s greatest achievements has been its sensational success at the International Wine Challenge in London. Twice the Maglieri Shiraz has beaten all comers and been voted Best Shiraz of the Competition. It can be said truly, that Maglieri wines lead the world

With a wide range of single varietal distinctive wines, Maglieri is well known for being character filled and at the forefront of winemaking in the McLaren Vale region. Maglieri now offers a very fine Lambrusco range that is a tribute to Maglieri’s Italian beginnings. Amabile is Italian for soft and mellow, and the easy drinking Maglieri Amabile offers a hint of spritz, in a soft, fruity, uncomplicated wine that is bright garnet red in the glass with a gentle hint of bubbles, Lambrusco at it’s very best.

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.

The MadFish story
begins in the far southern reaches of Western Australia where 15 kilometres from the quiet coastal town of Denmark is the picturesque MadFish Bay
According to local folklore, the bay’s tranquillity is broken when two tides meet, resulting in schools of small fish going mad…. Jumping about to avoid being gobbled up by hungry, larger fish. MadFish, produced by Howard Park Wines, are wines with an emphasis on enjoyment and drinkability. They are for people who enjoy the pleasures of life: family, friends, food and wine.
 Madfish

Howard Park Wines first released the MadFish label in 1992 with the MadFish Premium White, soon followed by the MadFish Premium Red in 1993. Today they produce a number of styles, namely the much-lauded MadFish Chardonnay and Shiraz. These contemporary styles are made from cool climate fruit and are noted for their pure, fresh and clean characteristics in which the flavour of the fruit is the primary character.

As the story suggests, the MadFish name is derived from the magnificent MadFish Bay near the Howard Park Great Southern winery. The traditional aboriginal water turtle design on the label is a symbol of perseverance and tolerance – no doubt characteristics displayed by the poor fish in MadFish Bay who are constantly under attack by their predators. In the spirit of Western Australia, MadFish wines are without pretension and without fuss.

Premium wine can only come from excellent fruit ..

MadFish's locations, in the heart of the Great Southern and Margaret River, were chosen purposely to produce outstanding fruit. The sourcing of this fruit from specific vineyards, and in many cases specific blocks on the vineyard, is one of the most important factors in the production of MadFish wines.

During vintage, Chief Winemaker Michael Kerrigan drives over 26,000 kilometres testing, selecting and carefully monitoring the fruit planned for the MadFish range of wines. His trusty Holden Commodore wagon is constantly covered with dirt and mud from travelling the South West’s ‘dirt track’ roads. Amongst grape growers Michael has earn’t a reputation as bloody tough, rejecting more fruit than he accepts. The results speak for themselves.

MadFish Wines has been based at Denmark, a small coastal town located within Western Australia’s Great Southern region, since its inception in 1986. Home of MadFish Bay and situated 450 kilometres south of Perth, the coastline at Denmark and along to nearby Albany (50kms east) rates among the most beautiful in the South-West. Surrounded by spectacular Karri and Marri forest MadFish Wines’ Denmark Cellar Door is a place to welcome wine lovers and appreciators of natural beauty. Its 1000 tonne capacity winery is situated on an historical 100 acre property bound with native forest and accompanying kangaroos. MadFish's Margaret River winery and cellar door is located just outside the small town of Cowaramup, the birthplace thirty five years ago of what is now the Margaret River Wine Region. Named after Jeff Burch's (owner of MadFish Wines) late father, Leston Burch, the Leston Vineyard is the vine-producing property and home of MadFish Wines in Margaret River.
