Nestled within a
cocoon of mixed vegetation and rolling hills, Dalrymple Estate enjoys a unique and seductive aspect shared by only a few boutique vineyards littering Tasmania’s Pipers River region
Dalrymple Estate is located in the Tamar Valley at Pipers River, about one hour from Launceston. This celebrated vineyard of just 12.3 hectares rises up an easterly facing slope from 100m to 160m above sea level. Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987 after a long search for the perfect site, this small mature family owned vineyard produces some of Australia’s most distinctive cool climate wines.
 Dalrymple

Tea trees, eucalypts and ferns protect the terroir on all sides, whilst sea breezes from nearby Bass Strait moderate day and night temperatures, thereby encouraging the grapes to ripen evenly. On the western border of the property lies the extinct volcanic crater which created the vineyard’s rich basalt soils. These soils are of a moderate depth and so provide excellent drainage to avoid spring water logging, thereby keeping the vines in relatively good balance.

The majority of vines exceed 20 years of age and derive from clones sourced from Yalumba’s Vine Nursery. Featuring typical early ripening characteristics which assist in advancing grape maturity, these clones make an important contribution to the vineyard’s consistent cropping pattern. The trellis is mainly Scot Henry which is used to increase exposure to sunlight.

During summer, Tasmania offers the longest sunlight hours in Australia, with the days remaining cool, rarely exceeding 30 degrees Celsius. These unique conditions mean very few blocks require irrigation but where a vigour supplement is needed we are using natural mulches to assist with vine performance. These features all combine to deliver perfect conditions for growing the most intensely flavoured and aromatic wine grapes.

With a latitude of 41¬į, Dalrymple shares similar conditions to those found in Champagne. The vineyard specializes in Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, but the terroir and microclimate are so idyllic, that most any rootstock would take to the soil and yield winegrapes of exceptional quality. Dalrymple's fruit was planned from the word go to exhibit sensational varietal qualities and to be vinified by the nation's best winemakers.

The luscious Sauvignon Blanc is from Dalrymple's elite little vineyard and other important sites within Tasmania’s Tamar Valley. The fruit is ripened on the vine until flavours of passionfruit and spice developed. Various fermentation techniques, including some barrel fermentation are used to add complexity and layers to this vibrant Tasmanian Sauvignon Blanc. The succulent and fresh Pinot Noir is from the estate superlative Pipers River vines. Select parcels of fruit are chosen for their flavours of red berries and plum. Hand harvested and sorted, a natural ferment is encouraged, the various parcels are managed through a range of techniques to emphasise fresh berry flavours and supple texture. The J29 Block Pinot Noir has a supple and juicy palate with balanced bright fruits and savouryness. The fine tannins, spiciness and intensity are truly representative of the small J29 Block.

Cockatoo Ridge Wines
are among the most recognised labels in Australia
Cockatoo Ridge is headquartered in the Barossa Valley on the principal road between the two main Barossa towns of Tanunda and Nuriootpa. This high profile site was once the old Hardy's Siegersdorf winery, built in 1930. The property, held under long term lease by Cockatoo Ridge, is being renovated and will include administration, triage (bottle fermenting of sparkling wine) and barrel storage.
 Cockatoo Ridge

The brand's international popularity is growing rapidly, with sales to the United States alone expected to increase from the current 2,000 cases to more than 50,000 over the next 12 months. The strength of the brand lies in dedication to quality wine-making, product consistency, intensive marketing and careful cost control.

The fruit for Cockatoo Ridge's wines is sourced from their own carefully tended vineyards and from reputable contract growers throughout the Barossa Valley. The skilled winemakers often identify additional sources of premium fruit in areas outside the Barossa Valley, without compromising the house style.

Cockatoo Ridge Wines operates on a quality fruit philosophy. While the winery aims for self-sufficiency in fruit supplies, the production system is also geared to sourcing premium grapes from growers who are contracted to meet strict quality standards.

Cockatoo Ridge's philosophy is to deliver optimal value to wine lovers, and to remain responsive to changes in the global wine markets. Long established expertise in viticultural practices has led to a vigorous planting program that's been initiated to ensure adequate supplies to satisfy Cockatoo Ridge's growing domestic and export demand.

The Cockatoo Ridge label was originally owned by Yalumba and was launched in 1991 with a NV sparkling wine. Since its release the label has grown into one of Australia's most recognized wine brands, with the product range now including a selection of table wines. In 2002 Cockatoo Ridge Wines was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. Building on strong domestic sales and the introduction of new brands, Cockatoo Ridge have forged strategic relationships with leading distributors in international markets.

Louis Roederer is
one of the largest remaining independent Champagne Houses, owned by the same family since it was founded in 1776
In the period 1832 to 1870, under the direction of Louis Roederer, the house gained top ranking worldwide with sales of 2,500,000 bottles, including 390,000 in the United States and 660,000 in Russia where Louis Roederer champagne was an outstanding success. In 1876, Louis Roederer II who had succeeded his father created the Cristal Cuvée for Tsar Alexander II. Louis Roederer identified Russia as his special priority, and sales there quickly grew to as much as 60 per cent of total shipments.
 Louis Roederer

Louis Roederer champagnes became renowned at the Imperial Court and among the Russian aristocracy, who had been passionate about French culture and the art of living since the 18th century. Tsar Alexander II, was a champagne connoisseur who made it his personal mission to acquire the very best wines for himself. It did not please him to find that the champagne served at his table was indistinguishable from the champagne served at the homes of his courtiers.

On hearing of Tsar Alexander's displeasure, Louis Roederer commissioned a master Flemish glassmaker to design a new and unique crystal glass bottle, so solidly constructed that it could be made with a flat bottom. Thus was born Cristal, the first prestige vintage in the world of Champagne. From that time forward, the wines reserved for the Tsar were delivered in these precious bottles, bearing the imperial coat of arms.

Louis Roederer policy is driven by a commitment to quality and consistent style that always takes precedence over quantity. The volume of wine produced each year depends on expert vineyard management, a rigid set of qualitative criteria and nature's willingness to comply with these requirements. Every year at least two-thirds of the grapes must come from the House's own vineyards, a strictly enforced policy that is modelled on the methods applying to the Bordeaux Grands Crus Classes. The number of bottles that can be produced and sold each year is therefore inevitably limited.

Control of the quality of the grapes remains the key factor for Louis Roederer. Meticulous care is taken to conserve the character of the individual wines whose infinite distinctions will enrich the composition of the Cuvée. Yields from each individual parcel, village or cru are always vinified separately, partly in small tanks partly in wooden vats. Minimal use of malolactic fermentation conserves the fruitiness and freshness of the wines. The period of maturation on lees is twice as long as that traditionally applied in Champagne.

Then there are the finishing touches: the addition of the superb reserve wines that only the House of Louis Roederer ages in oak vats; the meticulous selection of a remarkable range of dosage liqueurs; and the ever-longer ageing of the wines in the cellar after disgorgement. The size, diversity and quality of the Louis Roederer vineyard is a major asset on which House policy depends, because it protects the independence of the House and guarantees control over the style of its wines. The 200 ha area under vine (494 acres) is entirely located in the Grands and Premiers Crus of the three Champagne regions; 65 ha (185 acres) in the Cote des Blancs, where Chardonnay is in its element providing champagnes with their finesse and elegance;. 60 ha (160 acres) in the Montagne de Reims, planted with Pinot Noir that gives champagnes their strength and body; 75 ha (149 acres) in the Vallee de la Marne, where the Pinot Noir adds distinctive fragrance and roundness.

Garden Gully is
built on the original Salinger's Hockheim winery site which originated in the 1870's and operated as such until 1945
The vineyard produces a limited range of premium wines sourced from the property's old vines and as well as younger plantings. The Shiraz is sensational and the Sparkling Shiraz takes all of us back to those halcyon days of the Great Western Region. The Garden Gully's vignerons are still trying to reshape the grand old vines and repair some of the damage caused by several years of neglect. The strategy is to prune the vineyard as late as possible to minimize the frost risk. Despite the frost and the very small crop at Garden Gully, the vines need frequent watering to maintain vine health.
 Garden Gully

The new Garden Gully was the brainchild of Sarah and Tom Guthrie, who over a period of months found another four investors to share their vision. Tom and Sarah Guthrie established their 8 acre Grampians Estate vineyard in 1989 on the slopes of the Grampians. The premium wines now being produced and the recognition they have received in wine shows, have given Sarah and Tom the confidence to expand their business and invest in Garden Gully.

Paul Dalkins lives at Great Western where he has his own young vineyard. Paul has worked on vineyards throughout south eastern Australia and New Zealand, and loves working in viticulture in the Grampians. Bruce and Robyn Dalkin own the 35-year-old Westgate Vineyard only a few kilometres up the valley from Garden Gully. When the Dalkins were invited to join the new Garden Gully team, they saw it as an opportunity to provide a cellar door outlet to sell the Westgate Label and also to invest in a piece of the regions history and advance the Garden Gully label which has had years of recognition.

Helen and Bill Francis, together with family members, Lindsay, James and Katharine Mullins, were inspired by the new vision for Garden Gully, having lived for 28 years in Charles Pierlot’s old home overlooking the Salinger vineyards. They produce olive oil from their own olive grove, Great Western Olives. Kate and Mick Connellan are relative newcomers to the Grampians region arriving in Ararat 12 years ago, originally planning to stay just three or four months! Their interest in good food and wine has been nurtured by the Ararat Wine and Food Society, of which Mick has served terms as foodmaster and president. They see Garden Gully as an opportunity to become actively involved in enhancing the region which they have come to love and enjoy.

The Garden Gully Vineyard is steeped in local wine history and its 50 year old vines bear testament to its place in local wine lore. From its early days as the Hockheim Winery established in the 1870s, through its days as a Seppelt vineyard and finally to its current incarnation as Garden Gully, Grampians Wine and Produce, it has always been recognised as a purveyor of fine wines. As Len Evans put it in his ‚ÄėComplete Book of Australian Wine‚Äô, published in 1990, ‚ÄúGarden Gully is one of the newest wineries in the Great Western region of Victoria, it is, at the same time, part of one of the oldest.‚ÄĚ

Salingers operated the vineyard until 1945, when it was sold to Seppelt. The old winery crumbled, but original underground tanks remain. These old tanks, made of cement and bricks are still used today as water storage. In 1984 Seppelt began a rationalisation of their operations at Great Western, which meant a greater commitment to the sparkling white varieties and Seppelt found themselves with some f ine vineyards bearing such varieties as shiraz and Rhine Riesling which they simply didn’t need any more. A group saw the opportunity to broaden their horizons and set up a company called Garden Gully Great Western Vineyards Pty Ltd to buy the vineyards and to make wine.
