Henschke Johanns Garden Bush Vine GSM A TRIBUTE TO THE EARLY LUTHERAN PIONEERS, many of whom carried Johann as their first name. Two thirds Grenache, with the balance of Mourvedre and Shiraz, all from low yielding, old and gnarled, dry farmed, bush grown and trellised Barossa vineyards. These precious sites yield parcels of parched but intensely flavoured fruit, in smaller berry and bunch size, exuding rare generosity and remarkable warmth. A richly concentrated palate, beautifully soft and textural, supported by fine grained tannins and a long, savoury finish.

Peter Lehmann Art Soul Riesling 2015 THE BAROSSA AND EDEN VALLEYS CAN BE PROUD OF A LONG TRADITION WITH RIESLING, regarded by many to be the noblest white variety of all. Peter Lehmann takes great care in the handling and vinification of his Riesling, declaring it would be his white wine of choice if cast away on the proverbial desert island! Part of the allure is a multitude of personalities, from aged honey characters to steely, piercing profiles bursting with lemon and lime. Peter Lehmann is a fresher style, it's slightly softer palate is consistent with some of the great Rieslings in the world.
Over the past
seventy years a number of memorable wines have been released under the Leo Buring name. In 2002 the winery returned to its roots, making only Riesling
Among the many personalities that have shaped the Australian wine industry over the past 150 years one name stands pre-eminent, Leo Buring. Hermann Paul Leopold Buring was born in South Australia on the 7th October 1876, the son of German immigrants. He was a highly skilled winemaker and is often described as Australia's Ambassador for Wine because he was one of the first to export Australian wine to many countries as far back as the early 1900s.
 Leo Buring

Buring graduated as Dux from the Oenology course at Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1896. He then gained practical experience in Europe before settling back in Australia at Minchinbury in 1902. Four years later, his wines earned 6 gold medals at The Brewers and Wine Exhibition in London. Over the years, Leo Buring established an international reputation as Australia's foremost maker of Riesling.

Buring finally achieved his dream at the age of 68 when he bought the Orange Grove Winery at Tanunda, in the Barossa Valley, which he re-named to Chateau Leonay. It became the label of Buring's flagship wine, combining intense fruit flavours with great elegance, and to this day is arguably Australia's pre-eminent Riesling.

Buring's influence in introducing Australia to table wine has been far reaching. His influence on the industry, ranging from technical advice to government reports, resulted in many improvements to Australian viticulture and viniculture. Acclaimed wine critic and judge, James Halliday, once described Leo Buring as, "the greatest maker of Rhine Riesling in Australia" and Australia's foremost producer of Rieslings over a 30-year period!"

Riesling expresses the nature of it's growing conditions like no other varietal. The combination of climate, soil, aspect and location all add up to create discernibly different characters in Rieslings from each region. For this reason, Leo Buring produces a Riesling from the Clare Valley and the Eden Valley. These wines share similar attributes, a clean fresh flavour and the ability to age, but possess very different characters.

The range of Clare Valley Riesling, Eden Valley Riesling and flagship Leonay, which is made from the best Riesling of the harvest, are all enjoyable while young and fresh but are known to age brilliantly. The wines age gracefully and acquire a great depth of toasty flavour while still retaining great freshness, and avoiding the kerosene -like character that hampers other aged Rieslings. Leo Buring makes Riesling and nothing but Riesling, one of the nation's great oenological treasures.

The Chain of
Ponds winery was established in 1985 on the outskirts of Gumeracha, approximately 4km from the original township
The Chain of Ponds initially described a creek which ran all the way from beyond Kersbrook to its confluence with the River Torrens near Prairie in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. The area was dotted at regular intervals with small ponds, having no visible connection above the ground but never drying up even in the driest, hottest summers. Much of the chain of water holes known as the Chain of Ponds vanished under the waters of the Millbrook Reservoir in 1918. While vineyards have been part of the makeup of the area since colonisation, the Chain of Ponds Winery was the first major planting of any note in the northern area of the Adelaide Hills region.
 Chain Of Ponds

Philptown was the location and original name of the Chain of Ponds site and was named after the founding publican, Oliver Philp of the Morningstar Hotel. It was established around 1850. The township later changed its name to Chain of Ponds in 1864. It was initially a postal village, and played a stopover role in the difficult trek across the ranges. Of significant importance in the early days were its location, and the fact that it was used as a resting place. The roads were very poor indeed and travel through the area was extremely difficult, due to the hilly terrain and thick dense scrub.

The Adelaide to Mannum coach service from the mid 1850’s used the Hamlet as one of four changing stations through the Adelaide hills on their trek to Mannum. In 1866 the Local South Australian Gazetteer described the Chain of Ponds as “having a fine spring flowing through it. The stream being imbedded in water cresses, which grow all year round!” The neighbourhood was said to be celebrated for its vineyards and fruit trees.

Wine grapes were first planted in the Adelaide hills in the early 1840’s. Situated east of Adelaide, the long and narrow Adelaide Hills region runs through the southern Mt. Lofty ranges. The high altitude combines brilliantly with the favourable climate, to allow grapes to mature at a slower pace than other regions, giving the wines intense elegant flavours and characteristics.

One of the earliest wineries and vineyards in the area is mentioned in the Adelaide papers for sale as follows: 1865 — Swithen Farmer— Section 6131 "Chain of Ponds". Winemakers plant complete with several thousand gallons of wine, wine presses, fermenting vats, casks, large boilers. Wine vintages 1863-1865. 16 acres of vineyard.

Four thousand vines were initially planted, covering 9 varieties, consisting of 470 vines of each variety, which was further increased with an additional 150 acres planted in 1989. The first vintage being in 1988. The winery has more recently extended the vineyard boundaries to source fruit from a much broader area of the region, which has added further complexities and subtleties to the wines themselves. Chain of Ponds produces a wide range of products and varieties which are perfectly suited to this cool climate region. The white varietals include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Semillon and Chardonnay. The reds include popular Australian varieties: Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as emerging and exciting varieties for the region: Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Barbera and Nebbiolo.

The confluence of
the might Wairau and Waihopai rivers is the site of the Braided River vineyards in Marlborough
Created over thousands of years, these vineyards showcase perfect soil structures and microclimates that consistently produce grapes with concentrated flavours and excellent varietal expression.
 Braided River

The river rocks, stones and free draining alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils of Braided River's Marlborough vineyards restrict the root and shoot growth of the vines. This allows the viticulturist to manage the vines in a controlled fashion to keep the vine in balance and thus focus the vines energy into the fruit ripening process.

The end result is grapes with concentrated, ripe-flavours and aromas with excellent varietal expression. The depth of character of the fruit handed on to the winemaker is outstanding.

Vidal Estate winery
is situated on the original site in Hastings on Hawkes Bay, established by Anthony Joseph Vidal 1905
Hot summer days, a long growing season and free draining soils have helped Hawke’s Bay become one of the premier wine regions in New Zealand. Anthony Joseph Vidal was one of the first winemakers to appreciate the natural potential of the area. He established Vidal Estate in 1905 and his spirit of adventure coupled with a lifelong commitment to crafting classic, elegant wines remains an inspiration to this day. He was 22 years old when he arrived in New Zealand from Spain in 1888. His first eleven years were spent in Wanganui, working for his uncle, pioneer winemaker Joseph Soler. He then moved to Hawkes Bay where in 1905 he purchased a small property in Hastings.
 Vidal Estate

Once the stables that occupied the site were converted into a cellar, Anthony set about planting some grapevines. It was from there he became one of New Zealand’s early wine innovators and his success led to expansion with further vineyard plantings in Te Awanga and then Te Mata. Today's Vidal Estate is a combination of old and new. Modern state of the art technology is used in conjunction with traditional winemaking techniques in the fermentations and maturations.

Vidal Estate sources grapes from New Zealand's second largest growing region, Hawkes Bay, including the world famous Gimblett Gravels. This area is defined by unique, free draining shingle soils and average temperatures up to three degrees hotter than most other areas in Hawkes Bay, resulting in complex and elegant red wines.

Characterised by high sunshine hours and diversity of landscape and soil types, the Hawkes Bay region has earned a reputation as one of the finest wine producing regions in the world, in particular for classically styled Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and rich Chardonnay with underlying elegance. Fruit is also sourced from vineyards located in Marlborough, New Zealand's largest wine growing region.

Vidal Estate is dedicated to environmentally friendly winemaking and sustainable winegrowing practices. This mindset allows Vidal Estate to contribute to New Zealand's clean, green image and increase quality assurance from vineyard through to the finished wine. Vidal Estate was a founding member of the Living Wine group, a small group of wineries who gained ISO 14001 certification in 1998, having achieved a globally recognised standard in environmental management systems. The winery is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) and BioGro certified, meaning it is accredited to process grapes grown using organic principles. Select Vidal Estate grapes are sourced from the BioGro certified Joseph Soler vineyard in Hawkes Bay.

Rather than relying on herbicides or pesticides, Vidal Estate's vineyard management focuses on enhancing soil fertility and fostering beneficial processes to minimise the need for intervention to control pests and diseases. It is the clean green approach to viticulture and meticulous attention to the art of winemaking, which sets the entire range of Vidal Estate apart, offering a magnificent experience of Hawkes Bay wines for optimal enjoyment to every enthusiast.
