Morambro Creek Shiraz 2012 PLANTED TO ORIGINAL ROOTSTOCK ON THE GENTLY UNDULATING PLAINS OF PADTHAWAY VALLEY, the Morambro Creek vines are grown to rich Terra Rosa soils, enjoying excellent sun exposure, yielding grapes with the most concentrated flavours, deep colour and generous tannins. Heat generated during the day is moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines, achieving an extended vintage. This extended time on the vine allows for grape tannins and seed to fully ripen before harvest, translating into wines that are rich and intense yet supple on the palate.
Moppity Vineyards s
is a flagship producer of the Hilltops region, rocketing to prominence after claiming some of the most coveted prizes in winemaking
Hilltops is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting viticultural regions in Australia. Viticulturally, the region can be summarised as Barossa meets the Grampians, power and concentration with elegance and finesse. The 170 acre Moppity Vineyard sits at the highest elevation in the Hilltops and the fully mature vines are among the oldest in the region. Moppity have embraced the philosophy that great wines are made in the vineyard. Moppity's team attempt to promote the somewhereness of site. There's nothing generic about the wines, they reflect unique geographic origins. Moppity wines are the ultimate expression of soil and micro-climate. They are different from the wines of other regions and different from the wines of other Hilltops producers.
 Moppity

Every effort is made in the vineyard to promote fruit quality. Minimal irrigation, bunch thinning and careful pruning ensures low yields of highly concentrated fruit, providing wines of great flavour intensity and regional and varietal distinction. The original plantings were established in the 1970s and are some of the oldest vines in southern New South Wales. Moppity's Reserve wines are typically sourced from the old, gnarly, low yielding vines. These old boys don't deliver much fruit but it's wonderfully concentrated. As they say, old vines make great wines!

The vineyard is situated on dark red volcanic granitic clays, impregnated with basalt. Moppity have 170 acres under vine spread over 450 acres of undulating terrain. Plantings include shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, nebbiolo, chardonnay, riesling, semillon and viognier.

There are multiple clones of each variety, five different shiraz clones as an example, each features distinct qualities. The result is a tremendous diversity in wine style depending on site, aspect, soil type and vine clone.

The Hilltops climate is cool to moderate. Summer rainfall is low, so the growers can control vigor and optimise flavour development. The vines generally have the benefit of a long, even ripening period - this supports flavour and colour development and underpins the intensity of Moppity's wines. Although early spring frost is an issue in the district, the Moppity Vineyards are sited on undulating terrain, ensuring adequate frost drainage.

Moppity's Reserve range is made in small quantities in only the very best years. The inaugural release in vintage 2006 was a Shiraz, which set the wine world alight winning top gold medal at the prestigious London International Wine Competition. The Estate range is sourced from the very finest fruit on the vineyard (unless a little makes the grade for the Reserve label). The focus is very much on quality and generally only around 5% of the crop will be allocated the the Estate range. No expense is spared in the winery and the wines have won numerous awards and critical acclaim. The Lock & Key range is named in reference to Jason Brown's 2nd fleet convict lineage and pays tribute to humble beginnings. They are single vineyard wines from mature, low yielding vines and represent remarkable value.

Chalk Hill is
a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction
In the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region and overlooking the township of McLaren Vale, the Chalk Hill vineyard has stunning panoramic views across grapevines to the coast. It was established in 1969 with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and more recently plantings of Sangiovese and Barbera have been added.The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia, they now have six vineyards spread across the beautiful McLaren Vale wine region. The first family vineyard was planted in 1897 and these century old vines still bear fruit today. It is the family commitment to make wines that reveal the unique place that is McLaren Vale, and to exhibit their efforts from the vineyard to the bottle. Wine is more than just a drink, it is a reflection of place and life.
 Chalk Hill

The grapes in Chalk Hill wines are primarily sourced from six family-owned vineyards in the McLaren Vale district, 40 kilometres south of Adelaide in South Australia. McLaren Vale's Mediterranean type climate of cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers provides perfect growing conditions for premium grapes. Each Vineyard has a different soil type and topography, providing unique growing environments for the grapes. We take these unique factors and combine them with expert viticultural management to produce grapes of distinct character and appeal that make Chalk Hill wines so sought after.

The home vineyard, Slate Creek lies on the northern edge of the Willunga township and is the most southern of the six vineyards. The vineyard dates back to 1897, when the first Grenache grapes were planted - they still produce fruit today. Willunga sits at the base of the Sellicks Hill Range and during summer, early evening breezes blow cool air through the vineyard, helping stop mildews taking hold.

At the northern gateway to McLaren Vale lies the Gateway vineyard, the first vineyard you see upon entering the district. Shallow red tertiary and stone soil sits on a limestone cap, similar to the famous Terra Rossa soils of the Coonawarra. These shallow soils combine with constant wind to provide a natural constraint on the vigour of the Shiraz vines, producing intensely purple grapes with silky tannins and strong berry flavours.

Wits' End vineyard straddles the plain between the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships and sits next to Penny's Hill winery. It is planted with Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes and has a winter flowing creek that over the millennia has deposited shale giving two distinct soil types.

The Wright's property is the most recent addition to Chalk Hill vineyards and potentially the most outstanding of them all. The vineyard was acquired from the Wright family and is now partly planted with experimental clones of Barbera, heirloom Shiraz clones and the grape variety mistakenly identified as Albariño. Around two-thirds of the vineyard is yet to be planted, further investigations are under way into the suitability of emerging varieties such as Touriga Nacionale, Arinto and Nebbiolo. Chalk Hill have also fenced off some large tracks of land that will form another site for habitat restoration with local native trees and plants. Premium estate selection wines occur when the team identify an exceptional parcel. It may be a single vineyard or only one barrel, but these wines are outstanding examples in great vintages and do not achieve their selection lightly.

The aim is
to make great wine, with the preservation of nature's flavours, complexities and balance by using minimal intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar - to allow the individual vineyard's sense of place to express itself
Jasper Hill are produced entirely on the estate using organic/biodynamic principles. The estate produce their own organic compost and have never used synthetic chemicals on either the vines or the soils, since vineyards were planted in 1975. Viticultural practices are as close to nature as possible: own rooted vines (ie. not grafted on to American rootstocks to confer Phylloxera resistance), no irrigation whatsoever, minimal tillage, natural inter-row mulching leading to broad bio-diversity, in turn giving depth and intensity to our wines. Only hand pruning of the vines and hand harvesting of the fruit can allow the human connection to the living soil.
 Jasper Hill

The soils are derived from Cambrian age basaltic rock (500 million years). Quite rare in the world and particularly in Australia, here they are unusually deep (4metre), red coloured, well drained, gravelly loams on undulating hillsides, but with good moisture retention. They occur in a narrow, non-contiguous strip between two naturally occurring North/South faults, typically only a few hundred metres wide. The faults give rise to a complex mineralogy.

Soil organic matter is high, allowing great bio-diversity in micro flora and fauna and supporting large earthworm populations - all beneficial for natural soil fertility. No synthetic chemicals have ever been applied to the soil or vines; the vineyards are totally organic; no insecticides, no herbicides, no synthetic fungicides and no artificial fertilisers.

The soil surface is either covered in mulch derived from vine prunings, leguminous cover crops and native grasses, or is lightly cultivated, with aeration. Minimal tillage is practiced, within and between vine-rows, using lightweight 4WD tractors to minimise soil compaction. Minimal intervention is used during fermentation and maturation, allowing terroir or earth character of the individual paddock or plot to emerge in the wine. More importantly the grapes at harvest are flavour ripe, regardless of sugar ripeness.

The vines have a sunny, open, balanced canopy that keeps fungal diseases at bay and eliminates the need for summer pruning, leaf plucking and crop reduction. All picking and pruning is carried out by hand by wonderfully skilled people from the district. All vineyards are unirrigated and rely on natural rainfall only. Underscoring the quality of the soils, at vintage the grapes retain high levels of natural acidity. Acid adjustment is rarely ever needed, even when sugar levels reach 14 Baume or higher.

Both Emily's and Georgia's Paddocks are on elevated hillsides at an altitude of 320 metres (1000 feet) and are approximately 1 km apart. Emily’s Paddock has a NE aspect and shallower soil, while Georgia’s Paddock has a NW aspect and the deeper soil. The vineyard at Cornella, is 20km north of Emily’s Paddock, within the Heathcote Region and on the same Cambrian soil, with an altitude of 330 meters and a NE aspect. Emily's Paddock is three hectares of Shiraz including around five percent Cabernet Franc, yielding about two tonnes per hectare (14hL per hectare), planted in 1975/76. Georgia's Paddock is twelve hectares of Shiraz yielding about three tonnes per hectare (20hl per hectare). Three hectares of Riesling giving about three tonnes per hectare (20 hL per hectare). Planted in 1975/76 with further small plantings done after the vineyard was ravaged by bushfire in 1987. One hectare each of Semillon planted in 1992, and Nebbiolo planted in 1993. Cornella Vineyard is four hectares of Grenache planted in 1998.

Forester Estate is
a family owned winery situated on at Yallingup on Wildwood Road in the northernmost reaches of Margaret River
Built in 2002, Forester Estate is a new generation winery that strives to showcase the distinct regional characters of northern Margaret River fruit. The Estate is surrounded by huge Eucalypt trees that once supported a thriving forestry trade established in the 1850s. This forestry industry was the first to open up rugged land along the Leeuwin Naturaliste ridge and provide jobs for many of the new arrivals.The property has a saw pit that was used by the original pioneers to mill timber which was transported by ox and cart to Yallingup Siding, the nearby railway station. This timber, especially the hardwood Mahogany (Jarrah), was shipped out from Geographe Bay to countries around the world. Even today, many streets of London lie on the Jarrah trees milled from the forests of Margaret River. It is from this heritage that the name Forester Estate is derived.
 Forester Estate

Forester Estate have built relationships with a number of key growers to ensure access to older vineyards. Considering that Margaret River is only 40 years old as a commercial wine growing region, vines greater than 20 years of age are considered mature here! Sourcing fruit from up to 14 vineyards in a given vintage allows plenty of options. Forester's Home vineyard was historically referred to as Redland Valley. It was planted on an open lyre trellising system in 1995. The property runs north-south up the eastern flowing Wildwood Valley. The open lyre trellis demands more manual labour and less machinery doing the work. The resulting decreased vigour and increased sunlight penetration provide unique fruit qualities that favour riper fruit spectrums and fully developed tannins.

Each property has unique site characteristics that are reflected in the fruit it grows. In some cases individual blocks of fruit on the one vineyard are picked in stages to further isolate subtle soil boundaries impacting on fruit quality. These unique site characteristics of soil composition, aspect to the sun, drainage patterns and climate all interact in almost magical ways to stamp a vineyard’s fruit with a certain quality.

There is a growing trend for Australian producers to focus more specifically on small, unique vineyard blocks with exceptional terroir to create their premium and ultra-premium wines. Forester Estate is absolutely committed to this approach to fruit sourcing with considerable resources applied to small batch winemaking in an effort to discover the gems that lie among the hills and valleys of Margaret River.

With lower rainfall and higher sunshine hours than the southern end of the region, and being impacted by the large body of warm water in Geographe Bay to the northeast, the Yallingup sub region lends towards riper, fruitier white wines and finely structured elegant reds. Finding good vineyard sites is a big part of the quality pie, but it is not all of it. Viticultural management practices are crucial to the maximizing of fruit potential and to the protection of Forester’s assets in years of adverse weather or strong disease pressure.

The decisions that can be made in establishing a new vineyard are endless, however once well established the approach to each vineyard is more or less the same – minimal inputs for the most natural output attainable. Irrigation is only used if absolutely required to keep vine health at an optimum. Forester's white wines consistently exhibit delightful fresh and lively fruit flavours balanced with crisp acidity and deliver a delicious, lingering, dry finish. White grapes are either hand or machine picked and transported the short distance to the winery for rapid chilling and processing. Tremendous varietal character, excellent balance and complexity, subtle oak and a lovely soft tannin finish typify Forester’s reds. Machine harvesting is not possible on the intensive open lyre trellis design. On selected parcels chilling may be employed before a long cold soak at the start of a ferment, however the typical approach is to crush to a small open fermenter and inoculate with yeast immediately.
