Black Chook Pinot Grigio
Adelaide Hills
Available by the dozen
Single vineyard Pinot Grigio from a superlative block of vine at Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills. Crafted to the vivaciously food friendly Veneto styling, albeit with a crisp Adelaide minerality, fruit is harvested on the very day that grapes display peak flavour and optimal intensity. Lifted floral notes, nashi pear, baking apple and rice pudding spice, the palate tantalizes with flavour, toothsome textures and delicious acid crunch. A delicately balanced yet flavourful Grigio to accompany Al fresco and all voguish, cosmopolitan fare.

Black Chook Sauvignon Blanc
Adelaide Hills
Available by the dozen
Black Chook is a collaboration between maestro Ben Riggs and Tony Parkinson, proprietor of the salubrious Penny's Hill. Grapes are sourced from the Tomich property at Woodside in Onkaparinga Valley, a family owned and operated vineyard which yields the quality of fruit which has brought Adelaide Hills such renown. A vital Sauvignon Blanc that's fresh, beautiful to the taste and as invigorating as the cool Hills from whence it came, the idyllic growing conditions at Woodside deliver a gorgeous wine with crisp mineral textures and revitalizing palate.

The Galvanized Wine Group is a mob of Aussies with plenty of passion and good creds. The intrepid Ben Riggs makes the wines but all stakeholders, growers and staff get in on the act. To make a Black Chook, selection of site is central to the finished style of wine. The Tomich vineyard yields fruit with exceptional quality and balance. The unequivocally cool climate, very old, low to moderately fertile podsolic over schitz quartz soils yield outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. Parcels of grapes from Block J and Block L are destemmed straight into the press. A regimen of skin contact is employed to extract maximum flavours before inoculation and controlled, low temperature fermentation.
 
Light, bright straw colour. Freshly cut spring grass and sage on the nose, paired nicely with citrus and a touch of passionfruit sweetness to the mid palate. Call this a wine of many adjectives, fragrant and full of flavour, redolent of fresh herbs and cool climate fruit, stimulating, just perfect with food.
Black Chook Shiraz
McLaren Langhorne
Available by the dozen
There are few winemakers as predisposed as Ben Riggs, to appropriate the best parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, which are vinified alongside a component of superlative Langhorne Creek fruit, to achieve a juicy and textural, mouth filling wine. Riggs long and intimate association with McLaren Vale gives him a comprehensive knowledge of the most splendid sites and dedicated growers. A stylish construct of Shiraz with an alluring bouquet, layered complex palate and malleable tannins, Black Chook has gained fans across Australia and around the world.

A collaboration between Ben Riggs and Tony Parkinson of Penny’s Hill, Black Chook is the bigger sibling from the Woop Woop wineworks. The backbone of Shiraz is sourced from good vineyards in McLaren Vale, sites that are nourished by a Mediterranean climate, winter dominant rainfall, warm, dry summers and low humidity. Further components from choice vineyards along the Limestone Coast infuse the palate with exciting blackcurrant and eucalypt characters. Vinified in a combination of fermenters, a period of maceration on skins intensifies the colour and extracts sleek tannins. Maturation in a selection of fine oak barrels serves to soften and integrate the palate, developing velvety mouthfeel.
 
Bright garnet colour. A plum and chocolate nose filled with hints of ripe berries and gentle spice. The palate is smooth and layered with rich flavours supported by supple vanilla oak and firm tannins, culminating in a long lingering finish of soft varietal plum and cherry characters, but not without the varietal punch of ground pepper and spice. A suitable accompaniement to flavourful braises and grilled meats.
Black Chook Sparkling Cuvee
Available by the dozen
The Black Chook team have been to woop woop and back, way past the black stump and all through the outback. They've sourced grapes from the finest sites, almost losing themselves amongst the vines to find the right fruit. Bundles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from hand chosen vineyards are fashioned into a splendid experience in effervescence by the intrepid and illustrious team at Galvanized Wine Group. An exquisitely balanced, creamily textured sparkler with generosity of flavour, to match with smart nibbles or your favourite recipe roast chook.

McLaren Langhorne

From good vineyards in the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, an assemblage of Shiraz wines that have been vinified and aged separately, isolated on the basis of character and complexity, then woven into a tapestry of remarkable integration. Tiraged and treated to a secondary fermentation in bottle, Black Chook has developed a rich chocolate and cherry ripe palate with light biscuitty oak and gummy, chewy tannins. A luscious Sparkling Shiraz, sagaciously balanced, destined to compliment pork, turkey, and every festive engagement.

The Galvanized Wine Group's collective approach to strategic viticulture, stratification of style and triangulated approach to vinification, includes the highly successful Woop Woop (out there from out there) and its sibling Black Chook label, all are wines of charm and character. The multi vintage Black Chook sparkles to the tune of an effusive, opulent persona, predominantly three to five year old Shiraz wines, aged in a combination of seasoned French oak barrels, where they develop layers of smooth integrated fruit and a rich weighty texture across the palate. These are assembled with a touch of younger Shiraz wines contributing ripe juicy fruit characters. Alcohol 13.0%
 
Bright red/ brick colour with light purple foam and a fine, persistent bead. Aromas of floral and light oak, mulberry and violet, dates and sweet coffee. A big palate of red and black fruits, lively spice, charcouterie and leather.

McLaren Vale has an unrivalled reputation in Australia and indeed the world, for constantly producing first-class wines. It has one of the most consistent, Mediterranean-style climates in which to grow premium wine grapes. The cool climate of the Adelaide Hills on very old podzolic soils of low to moderate fertility makes for ideal growing conditions and an enviable reputation for magnificent white grapes.

Nearby Langhorne Creek is an old established region from which both Shiraz and Viognier have been drawn. Padthaway, first planted in 1964, is an iconic South Eastern Australian region known for rich soils, underground water supply and temperate climate.

As they scratched around for a name for the first Shiraz Viognier, an obviously interested black chook stopped in its unplanned tracks, lingering, as only chooks do, just long enough for the penny to drop. For its trouble, they immortalised that single Black Chook, rationalising that it had come from a small white egg, just as their dark, inky, black Shiraz had been transformed by a tiny amount of fragrant white Viognier. Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook brand struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Since first vintage in 2003, The Black Chook Shiraz has scored an uninterrupted run of 90+ points, internationally recognised reviews and enjoys great success everywhere.

Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression hatches wines with approachability, generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.
