Pepper Tree have applied their principles of dedicated vineyard management and uncompromising standards of vinification, in the pursuit of a compelling yet accessible Cabernet Sauvignon. Wrattonbully adjoins Coonawarra, the prominent viticultural feature is a series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run north to south. These are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown Terra rossa clay loam soils that are so highly prized for growing outstanding Cabernet. Components harvested from good vineyards are treated to a week's vinification on skins at 18C to 20C, followed by an extended term of age in a selection of French oak barrels.
 
Deep, dark scarlet in colour. Complex nose of cassis and blackberry fruits with a heady mix of lifted spice notes integrated well with subtle French oak. Rich and concentrated, displaying a sweet mid palate, long fruit with complex spice flavours. The nicely structured finish is balanced well by subtle ripe tannins.
Pepper Tree Semillon Sauvignon
Hunter Valley & Orange
Available by the dozen
A core of resplendent Hunter Valley Semillon with a slightly smaller portion of Orange grown fruit, assembled into a tightly integrated, stylish white of soft textures and crisp refreshing fruit. Pepper Tree is through and through, a Hunter Valley operation which postulates that grapes grown ouside of their locale should be explored. So what could be better than the elegance and finesse of Hunter Valley Semillon matched with a vibrantly aromatic and exhileratingly flavoured component of Sauvignon Blanc, picked off the splendid climes of the New South Wales highlands.

Hunter Valley is one of the world's great white wine growing districts. Pepper Tree's vineyard is in the Mount View area of Lower Hunter, within the sheltered foothills of Brokenback Range. Alluvial loams along the vineyard's creek flats are ideal for Semillon. Pepper Tree's vineyard sits in a small subvalley protected on three sides and grows the most intense Sauvignon Blanc. The higher elevations at Orange make a major contribution to Australia's most exciting new viticultural precinct, favoured for its sensational long growing season and extended cool ripening. Fruit is all hand picked and gently pressed to preserve delicate fruit aromas, effecting an elegance and finesse on the palate. Alcohol 13.0%
 
Pale, lemon straw hue. Intense aromas of passionfruit and gooseberry followed by a citrus lift. A lively palate combining perfectly the tropical high notes of Sauvignon Blanc with the wonderful length and definition of Semillon, vibrant and superbly balanced before with a long, crisp finish.
Pepper Tree Wrattonbully Merlot
Wrattonbully
Available by the dozen
Wrattonbully makes Merlot of exceptional character and flavour, arguably the finest and most consistent annual yields in Australia. The wines are distinctive for their blueberry, plum and mint character, sound structure and velvet tannins. Pepper Tree's Merlot vines are fortuitously planted to heavier clay soils at the toe of the main Wrattonbully dune, as heavy clays have proved to be the best soils for Merlot in its traditional home of Bordeaux. A soft and rich, profoundly fruit driven Merlot wine with more power and weight of varietal flavour than most.

The prominent viticultural feature of Wrattonbully is a series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run north/ south, made of soft crumbly limestone which weather to produce the red and brown Terra rossa clay loam soils that are so highly prized for growing outstanding quality wine grapes. The higher elevation brings the advantage cold air drainage which reduces the risk of frost throughout the colder months of the growing season. Harvests of Merlot from choice Wrattonbully vineyards are treated to a fortnight on skins in static fermenters, pressed off skins and racked to a selection of fine French oak barrels for eighteen months before assembling into the final wine. Alcohol 13.9%
 
Deep purple red colour. An aromatic Merlot nose of black and red fruits with spicy lift and subtle oak. A fully ripe, classically medium bodied palate, packed with sweet berry fruits and spice, balanced by subtle French oak and fine, long velvet tannins, before a lingering complex finish. Enjoy with polpette e papardelle or coq au vin.
Although Pepper Tree winery is sited in the Hunter Valley and founded as a Hunter Valley winery, the winemakers believe that grapes grown in other regions exhibited characters that should be explored

Over the years Pepper Tree have acquired vineyards in the Orange, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra growing areas to enable the winemaker production of varietal wines that either did not grow as well in the Hunter Valley, or are different expressions of a particular varietal that are of interest to connoisseurs of fine wines. The character and complexity reflected in the Appellation wines are an expression of diverse vineyard resources. A second is the balance and elegance in the Multi-Regional range of varietals. These are blends of a varietal wine made from grapes grown at two or more of vineyards that vary from year to year. All Pepper Tree wines are produced, aged and bottled at the winery.

Pepper Tree

The Hunter Valley is one of Australia's best white wine areas and consistently wins a disproportionate number of awards in National Wine Shows. Pepper Tree's Hunter Valley vineyard is in the Mount View area of the Lower Hunter Valley in the sheltered foothills of the Brokenback Range and covers 38.5 ha of plantings made up of 16.5 ha Chardonnay, 2.5 ha Verdelho, 3.7 ha Semillon, 7.5 ha Shiraz, 1 ha Viognier, 1 ha Sauvignon blanc, 3 ha Merlot, 2.4 ha Cabernet, 0.5 ha Grenache and 0.5 ha Pinot Noir.

The Mount View area produces highly distinctive Chardonnay with flavours of melon, passionfruit and pineapple. Verdelho also performs well in the area with soft tropical fruit characters balanced by good natural acidity. Semillon has the usual lime-citrus characters with flavours being at the higher end for the variety. Shiraz from the area is typically soft, spicy and elegant with a perfumed bouquet.

Shiraz from a good vintage will age favourably for many years

The Orange region of New South Wales is one of Australia's newest premium regions being favoured for its high altitude cool climate. Situated approximately 270 km west of Sydney the topography and soils of the Orange region are dominated by the extinct volcano Mt Canobolas. Pepper Tree's Orange vineyard sits in a small subvalley protected on 3 sides with a sunny northerly aspect. Elevations vary from 740m to 800m and the site is capable of ripening all the main red varieties as well as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Cabernet, Merlot & Shiraz all produce wines with deep red colours and intense palate complexity.

The wines from Pepper Tree's Orange vineyard typically have a lighter more elegant structure than those of warmer areas with light lifted fruit acids lengthening the palate. In addition to the main red varieties, small blocks of Pinot Noir (for sparkling base) & Zinfandel have been planted. Zinfandel produces rich spice and berry characters with crimson red colours. This variety seems well suited to the Orange region and the wines show great promise.

Coonawarra is Australia's top red wine area specialising in Cabernet Sauvignon of great complexity and elegance. Pepper Tree's Coonawarra vineyard comprises 8 ha of Cabernet and 4 ha of Merlot and is located midway between the town of Penola & Coonawarra. Soils consist of thin dark brown to dark grey clays interspersed with broken limestone fragments. The shallow soils restrict vigour and this, coupled with rigorous canopy management, allows the vignerons to control berry size and bunch numbers and thus eventual crop load. This control of crop level and berry size gives the winemakers the best possible starting material with which to create premium red wines.

Wrattonbully adjoins the Coonawarra area in the southern part of the Limestone Coast wine zone

Pepper Tree's Wrattonbully vineyard covers 100ha of plantings, mainly Cabernet (48 ha) Merlot (23 ha) and Shiraz (20 ha). Cabernet is planted on the highest dune areas where Terra Rossa soils overlie shallow limestone. Individual blocks are given separate canopy management, cropping structure and moisture control according to soil depth which can vary from a few centimetres to over 1 metre.

Flavour maps constructed for the vineyard have shown considerable variability for both Cabernet and Shiraz, and have allowed the winemakers to isolate individual sections of the vineyard to produce parcels of outstanding quality. Merlot is planted on heavier clay soils at the toe of the main dune as heavy clays have proved best for Merlot in its traditional homeland.
