Dutschke Jackson Cabernet Shiraz 2013 ONCE UPON A TIME, around the end of the nineteenth century, the Semmlers grazed cattle on what are now Dutschke vineyards. They always grew grapes and made their own wine but it wasn't until the 1930s that Oscar Semmler started taking viticulture just a little more seriously. True to the tastes of the time, most of the yield was made into rich ports and fortified styles.

In 1855 Timothy
Stanton abandoned his occupation as a mechanic in West Suffolk and brought his family to Australia in search of gold
In 1864 together with his son John Lewis Stanton, Timothy purchased land at Rutherglen in North East Victoria immediately establishing a farm and vineyard. By 1875 the Stantons were well established as successful Rutherglen vignerons. Timothy's grandson John Richard Stanton continued to improve and expand the business and by the 1920s had established the magnificent Park View vineyard and winery.
 Stanton Killeen

The lineage continued until 1948 when Norman Killeen married Joan Stanton and in 1953 he joined her and his father-in-law in the formation of Stanton and Killeen Wines. Norman's son Chris took over as winemaker in 1981, thus becoming the sixth generation of Stanton and Killeen winemakers in the Rutherglen district.

The Stanton and Killeen property is situated three kilometres due west of Rutherglen on the Murray Valley Highway on gently undulating picturesque farming country. It is the wonderful origins of history that make this winemaking family so important to the pioneering story of Rutherglen and the development of winemaking in Australia.

Some of the original vineyards planted by Jack Stanton in 1921 are still in production and produce some of the finest fruit in the district. The most notable being the old shiraz vines which produce the now famous Jacks Block Shiraz dry red while also providing the blockbuster blending material for the equally famous Stanton and Killeen Vintage Port. Other grape varieties planted at Stanton and Killeen include Chardonnay, Durif, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Muscat, Muscadelle and the port varieties of Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cao, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz.

Over 300 hectares are devoted to mixed farming enterprises while 30 hectares of the best well drained soils are planted to vines with an annual production of approximately 250 tonnes. The soil ranges in quality from gravel ridges to red loam on the slopes under which lies a porous clay. It is on these latter soils that the classic muscat, tokay and full bodied dry reds are produced.

The Stanton & Killeen winemaking facilities utilise not only the modern technology of stainless steel and cool fermentation techniques but also the traditional method of open vat fermentation, thus maintaining over one hundred years and six generations of winemaking experience, skill and mystery into the production of supreme Rutherglen wine. The winery is open for daily wine sales and tastings every day except Good Friday and Christmas Day.

Quality and innovation
have always been the driving forces behind Peter Dawson and Tim James
The two friends met in Adelaide in 1976 when the Australian wine industry was going through tough times. Peter was a 21 year old science student from Geelong, Victoria, who'd just got his first job in the wine sector as a cellar hand at Thomas Hardy & Sons inner city Mile End winery, where Tim was the production winemaker. They struck up a remarkable friendship that has spanned three decades, and seen them work alongside each other for 20 years at Hardys before moving on in more recent times to new jobs and ventures. They have a collective winemaking experience of more than 60 years and their interest in wine runs much deeper than at career level.
 Dawson James

Peter and Tim have now collaborated on a project that is as much about personal passion as it is about professionalism, Dawson and James Wines. The single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the results of a long held ambition. Peter and Tim's release of a wine has been much anticipated by their peers, who have over the decades benefited from the wisdom and guidance of these two old hands. The pair has represented the wine industry in various roles, including as winemakers, judges, educators, lobbyists and directors. They have both mentored another generation of winemakers who share their relentless search for quality, not just in the vineyard, but in oak, winemaking and bottling.

Peter Dawson and Tim James have a shared love of Australian art, farming, camping and gastronomy, and families and friends whose palates have benefited from their winemaking wisdom. Their association with vignerons Gerald and Sue extends over 16 years and their contribution as grape growers is integral to achieving quality endeavours.

Dawson and James fruit is grown on the Meadowbank vineyard, which is located approximately 60 kms north west of Hobart. Its rugged topography is bounded by the fast flowing, pristine waters of the Derwent river. Property owners Gerald and Sue Ellis established the first plantings in 1974 and the vineyard holds a special place in the history of Tasmanian viticulture.

The late Stephen Hickinbotham was early to recognise the potential of cool climate viticulture on the Meadowbank site, making Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling between 1981 and 1984. Plantings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were first made in 1987.

Vineyard patches selected for Dawson & James wines were planted in 1989 and vine age plays an important part in flavour development and the balance of the fruit. The vineyard site has an elevation of 70 metres above the river level and a north easterly aspect which attracts optimal sunlight to ripen the grapes. Soils range from brown loams to sandy loams over structured clays and sandstone rock. The soils are of a devigorating nature, contributing to balanced growth and good vine structure. Yields are managed to less than 6 tonnes per hectare with Pinot Noir managed to one bunch per shoot.

Monichino are all
about honest wines made from good fruit, grown to a greatly loved vineyard, by fair dinkum people with endless passion
The rolling hills of Italy's Piemonte and the flat plains of Victoria's Goulburn Valley are worlds apart. The classic tradition of wine making however, has transferred flawlessly from one hemisphere to the other. When Carlo Monichino migrated from the Asti region of northern Italy, he brought his winemaking skills with him. Carlo and Margaret Monichinon established their first vineyard on the Australian continent at Katunga in central Victoia's Goulburn Valley in 1962. The Monichinon family recognized that the rich soil and excellent climatic conditions make this region ideal for grape growing. Vines were first planted here during the 1880s, one of the oldest and most enduring grape growing regions in Australia.
 Monichino

Originally planted to the more ubiquitous Australian grape varieties, for the production of locally popular styles of wine, Monichino vineyards now yields harvests of Barbera, Sangiovese and Pinot Grigio. Exquisitely balanced, flavourful and refreshing wines in the fashion of Italy's most renowned viticultural precincts, are a specialty of Monichino vineyard wineworks. The high quality of fruit harvested off 26 estate owned and operated hectares of low yielding vines, can only be achieved by close husbanding and hard wok, by heavy pruning and light supplementary watering. This increases the intensity of flavour and emphasizes the natural character of the varietal grape. The result is a range of high quality, hand crafted wines, offering rich aromas and full bodied palates.

Goulburn Valley is heaven sent for agriculture, Monichino's vines are planted to what are essentially, top notch farming terrains, premium Moira loams, soils that are ideal for wine grapes. Monichino Wines remain a true family concern, extended family and neighbours are all involved. Carlo Monichino' eldest chose to study wine science and to do vintage overseas before assuming the role of chief winemaker.

Estate harvests of Pinot Grigio, Barbera and Sangiovese, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, White Frontignac and Orange Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz, are all of exceptional quality every year. Table wines, sparkling and fortifieds, are all on the Monichino wine list. Some vineyard blocks are left on the vine to develop into the luscious dessert styles, parcels of noble rot affected grapes are selectively picked for crafting into luxurious botrytis wines.

Visitors to Monichino are welcome and the cellar door is open to all. Call in for a chat over a large range of award winning wines for tasting, Monichino's friendly staff will help you with your wine selection and can help with information on food and wine matches. Take the time to relax and savour a locally made cheese platter in the well laid out picnic grounds overlooking Monichino vineyard. Above all, sample the complete range of Monichino wines and you're certain to be impressed!

Australia’s most successful
and prestigious sparkling wine venture was established in 1971 as a hobby by Ballarat businessman Ian Home
The Yellowglen vineyard at Smythesdale, 18km south west of Ballarat was originally planted to red grape varieties destined for table wine. The name Yellowglen was given to the winery after a gold mine was discovered in the middle of what are now pinot noir sites. It soon became clear however that this cool climate area would be far better suited to the production of world-class sparkling wine. Ian himself recognised that a gap had developed in the market for sparkling wine in Australia. French champagne was priced at $12.99 and Australian sparkling wine at $3.99
 Yellowglen

Sparkling wine was made for the first time at Yellowglen 1982. Ian Home went into partnership with Dominique Landragin, born and bred in the Champagne region in France. Two years later the classic yellowed labelled Yellowglen Brut NV was released as a premium Australian sparkling wine priced at $6.99. By 1984 Yellowglen had also grown rapidly. Ian and Dominique recognised that capital was required to grow the business to its full potential. Mildara Wines saw the opportunity Yellowglen offered, and took control of the winery that year. Jeffrey Wilkinson from Brown Brothers was employed as head winemaker for Yellowglen in that year.

The first Cuvee Victoria was released from the 1983 vintage. At the same time, Yellowglen released the now justly renowned Brut Cremant, a creamier and softer style than the Brut NV. 1989 The first Yellowglen Vintage wine was released in 1989. It was made from the 1987 vintage and it has gained a reputation as being one of Australia’s finest single vintage sparkling wines.

Following Jeffrey Wilkinson’s departure, the Chief Winemaker for Yellowglen became Adam Eggins, who was Dux of the Oenology Degree at Roseworthy College in 1990. Yellowglen introduced the Y Premium with its unique ceramic printed label, a first in the sparkling wine market, and a blend of wine from Yellowglen’s best vintages. Yellowglen was again at the forefront of innovation when it introduced the Y, its unique and striking ceramic printed label and a more up-front flavoursome Chardonnay driven style ensured it was an immediate success. Yellowglen had cemented itself as Australia’s most successful premium sparkling wine producer.

Yellow Sparkling was successfully launched and became an instant success in 1996. Launched as an entry point into the Yellowglen brand, Yellow was a fun, uncomplicated, casual offering to the consumer. The packaging was simple, the style fresh and flavoursome. The popularity of Yellow grew rapidly and it became a standout success for the brand. In 1999 Charles ‘chilly’ Hargrave was appointed Head Winemaker at Yellowglen.

In 2000 the Yellowglen Red Sparkling was successfully launched. This product expanded the small category that was red sparkling wine at this time, and became the number one best selling sparkling red wine in Australia. In 2000 Yellowglen Pinot Noir Chardonnay Piccolos were launched and were a huge success that Christmas. The year 2000 also saw the launch of the Seriously Bubbly advertising campaign. The Bubble Dress concept was introduced to the Yellowglen advertising, and now has become synonymous with Yellowglen. The concept for the advertising campaign centred on the excitement that accompanies drinking Yellowglen – it was, and continues to be, feminine, fun, celebratory and seriously bubbly!
