Evans Tate Metricup Road Semillon Sauvignon 2015 THE MARGARET RIVER'S SALUBRIOUS MARITIME CLIMATE OF MILD, wet winters and warm, even summers, produces Sauvignon Blanc that's more tropical in style than the grassy herbaceousness of cooler districts. Margaret River Semillon is generally noted for its thistle/ vegetative qualities and for the weight and structure it carries. Fruit sourced from the cooler Karridale precinct and a very protected site in Wilyabrup coalesce into a unique style of wine which best articulates the exhilarating vitality of the classically dry Margaret River white.
Plant a six-inch
nail in this soil, water it and in a year you will have a crowbar
So said John James McWilliam when he arrived in Hanwood in 1913. The development of the Riverina region as a major wine producing area was primarily due to the foresight of the McWilliam family. The Riverina, and Hanwood in particular, was an area John James McWilliam the son of McWilliam's founder, Samuel McWilliam had identified earlier as having the potential to service the growing domestic and export wine markets.
 Hanwood Estate

In 1913, John James McWilliam planted the first vines at Hanwood, just 8kms south of the thriving agricultural town of Griffith in New South Wales; and in 1917 he established McWilliam's Hanwood winery. Today, this same winery is a large modern facility, one of the largest in the region - with an average crush of 18,000 tonnes and a storage capacity of more than 22 million litres.

Not only was he responsible for the trial of premium varieties previously unknown in the district, he was also responsible for leading the way in developing the winery technology necessary to produce table wines in a hot summer climate. Just as John James led the way in 1913, so it was Glen McWilliam that pioneered the region's move into table wines during the mid-1950s.

The Riverina is today credited with producing more than two-thirds of New South Wales wine and almost one-quarter of Australia's total wine production. The constant, even rainfall, rich and fertile soil and warm temperatures during the ripening season make the Riverina ideally suited to viticulture.

McWilliam's Hanwood Estate - one of Australia's leading premium quality wine ranges, is a blend of high quality fruit from a range of vineyard sites within South Eastern Australia. McWilliam's Hanwood Chardonnay is one of the most consistently awarded white wines at its price point and arguably the fastest growing Chardonnay in the domestic market.

Fruit is predominantly sourced from the Riverina and Hilltops regions in New South Wales, the Yarra Valley in Victoria, and Coonawarra in South Australia. The diverse fruit supply provides the winemaking team with a broader range of blending options and enables them to produce a range of wines that are high in quality and consistent in style from one year to the next.

Established 1971 by
John and Marli Middleton, Mount Mary was one of the first sites planted during the resurgence of interest in Yarra Valley wines
The inspiration behind the planting of vines in the Yarra Valley came from Swiss settlers of the 1850’s. These worldly and hard working immigrants had been greatly influenced by French wines and recognised the climatic parallels the Yarra Valley shared with Bordeaux and Burgundy. After extensive visits to the wine producing areas of the world in the late 1960’s, and in particular those of Bordeaux and Burgundy, John and Marli Middleton became fixated on French premium wine. They resolved to find a suitable site upon which to establish a small commercial vineyard with the intention of making elegant, low alcohol wines from French varieties. John was obsessed at this stage with an idea put in his head by Colin Preece of Great Western, that Australia was yet to produce a refined and elegant Cabernet. John saw it as his duty to work towards this.
 Mount Mary

John Middleton had already led a very active and healthy life during which much was achieved. He came to Lilydale in 1952 after service in the RAAF and medical training at Melbourne University. Although he had the opportunity to specialise, he chose to establish himself as a dedicated family doctor in what was then, a predominantly rural community. His fascination with wine began in his late teens and never faded. Mount Mary was the vehicle by which he fulfilled his dream to produce wines of great quality. And so it was that in 1971, John and Marli stumbled upon the property known as Mount Mary. Surprisingly this ideally located, gentle north facing slope had not been planted to the vine yet they immediately recognised it as being ideal for their purpose.

The first plantings were completed by mid 1972 and today Mount Mary has around 40 acres under vine representing 18 varieties of varying age and distribution. The low yielding unirrigated vineyard is almost 12.5 hectares and is planted on grey soils – sandy clay loams overlying degenerating Silurian shales. The vines face due north and capture optimum sunlight during the growing season.

More than half the land area of Mount Mary is not directly related to wine production. The health of the property is of primary concern and there is a long term objective of being self sufficient in energy and water. The winemaking team are also keen to limit any impact on the environment through revegetation and weed control.

The four wines produced by Mount Mary come from 10 varieties. Two wines are based on Bordeaux blends accounting for 8 varieties and two wines are the common varietals from Burgundy. Over the past few years, a Rhone Valley blend based on 7 varieties has been developed. The 18th variety is Pinot blanc.

Mount Mary is a truly family business. All the Middletons share a great love of nature and an equally great disdain for authority and bureaucracy. John Middleton Sr was ahead of his time, he summed it up best when he argued that the classical Medoc balance has always been traditionally towards firm, cedar, cigar box, green olive, leafy Cabernet. All the great Bordeaux have powerful violets, cherry and mulberry, and the undercurrent of cedar, cigar box and green olive or leaf, not the jammy examples that taste like a sweetened dummy. Who wants a fruity red which with time in the cellar approaches more and more towards a dry port? Despite the many challenges that have been presented to Middletons over the years, progress towards environmental goals continue. Whilst there is still a long way to go in terms of becoming the ideal environmentally aware organisaton, Mount Mary have continued with their planting program and water and energy system designs.

Wicks is a
family owned and operated estate vineyard operation at Woodside in the picturesque Adelaide Hills
The Wicks team are dedicated to producing high quality estate grown wines of exceptional regional character which represent excellent value. Tim and Simon Wicks proudly front the Wicks Estate Label, armed with a firm belief in long term success, aim to steer the company into a position where the Wicks Estate Brand is regarded as one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest. The Wicks Family has a long history of involvement in agriculture with the Woodside Vineyard following on from their orchard and nursery operations at Highbury.
 Wicks

In late 1999, the 54 hectare property at Woodside was chosen and purchased for its scenic location and suitability for premium wine grape production within the Adelaide Hills, Australia’s premier cool climate wine growing region. The vineyard, planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was designed around the gentle undulating slopes studded with a number of ancient red gums and the Inverbrackie Creek that winds its course through the length of the property.

The winery is a state of the art facility situated amongst the estate vineyard utilising worlds best practice grape growing and wine making procedures. This world class processing facility, completed in early 2004, was designed and constructed utilising a team of private and independent engineers, machinery manufacturers, winemakers and builders under the guidance of the Wicks family as project managers.

Long time friend of the Wicks family and heading up the winemaking team is Tim Knappstein, who graduated from Roseworthy College as Dux of the Oenology course in 1966. After a number of years experience in the Clare Valley district Tim made a move to the Adelaide Hills and is identified as a pioneer of the Adelaide Hills cool climate wine region.

A long history of involvement in a number of wine judging panels sees Tim as a highly regarded and sort after Australian wine judge, further providing him with the skills required to craft fine wines of character that exemplify the Adelaide Hills cool climate wine region. Tim’s lifetime of involvement in creating award winning wines is Wick's assurance of quality.

Joining Tim on the winemaking team at is Leigh Ratzmer. A Graduate in oenology from Adelaide University, Leigh has undertaken vintages in Austria, working with some of the regions leading winemakers and premium wine producers, as well as in the Barossa Valley, where he worked with some of the regions most prestigious labels. As a relatively young and enthusiastic new generation winemaker, Leigh brings with him invaluable and exciting ideas to help establish the Wicks Estate brand at the forefront of the cool climate wine industry. Everyone at Wicks works to ensure that the wines show ripe fruit flavours and display all the cool climate characters of the Adelaide Hills due to the unique vineyard site. Chardonnay is arguably the world’s most noble white grape, one that is ideally suited to the terrior of the Adelaide Hills. Wicks make a modern expression of cool climate Chardonnay showing an elegant balance between primary fruit flavours and subtle savoury complexities.

The Galli Estate
vineyard was established in 1997 by Lorenzo and his wife Pamela, it is based at Rockbank in the renowned Sunbury Wine Region of Victoria
The estate vineyard is close to the city of Melbourne, and is planted predominantly to Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller parcels of the more esoteric varietals. With it's rich, red volcanic soil, attention to detail in vine management and low yield targets, the estate is focused on producing premium quality wines. As the vines grew toward maturity over the years, the estate was able to select an increasing amount of good fruit, and to produce approximately 12,000 cases annually.
 Galli Estate

The Rockbank site features rich red volcanic soil over clay loam, interspersed with rocky outcrops. The vineyard is on a north-south axis and the vine trellising uses vertical shoot positioning to increase exposure to sunlight. Planting commenced in 1997 and the vineyard contains smaller blocks of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Merlot. Very special to the winemaking team are the exciting Italian varietals of Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese.

Although only relatively new, Galli Estate wines have already been recognised for quality in Australian wine shows, receiving Gold and Bronze medals for Cabernet Sauvignon, Gold for Pinot Grigio, three Bronze for Shiraz, as well as Bronze for Chardonnay and Sangiovese. Additionally the wines have received favourable reviews from noted Australian wine writers such as James Halliday.

Facilities constructed at Rockbank include the winery, a sales and administration centre and an underground cellar. Fifteen metres wide, six metres high and over 900 square metres in area, the earth covered cellar provides natural temperature and humidity control and houses the many hundreds of French oak barrels used for maturing the wines. The impressive cellar, winery and Cellar Door/ Administration buildings were built on the principles of the ancient arch system, employing steel arches surplus to the construction of the Burnley tunnel in Melbourne's city link project, giving a unique look and feel to the site.

In addition to the development at Rockbank, the Galli family have established a 250 acre vineyard at Heathcote, a Victoria wine region with an enviable reputation for quality, particularly in red wines. Located in Central Victoria about 100 kms north of Melbourne, the Heathcote wine region is classified as warm, and rainfall is limited. The growing season is warm and dry with relatively even temperature ranges during the ripening season. The harvest occurs from mid-March.

Vine planting commenced in 2000 at Galli Estate's Camelback vineyard, situated just north east of the Heathcote township. In keeping with the region's demonstrated specialty, the property is planted predominantly to Shiraz. Excellent results have also been achieved with Cabernet Sauvignon, and with an elegant, delicate Chardonnay. Since the inaugural 2004 vintage, all Heathcote fruit was immediately transported back to the Rockbank site for winemaking. "Galli Estate may be a newcomer to the scene, but it is a substantial one. A large underground cellar has been constructed. A cellar door sales, bistro and administration centre, with former Coldstream Hills winemaker Stephen Phillips in charge. The quality is as high as the prices are low!" -James Halliday
