Clouds Riesling 2018
Made from the grapes that ripen last in the Forest Range's Scary Gully vineyard - high and often cloud-covered (hence the wine's name) - with 13-year-old vines on shale and quartz. Antithesis of the classic Australian Riesling. Pressed whole-cluster after 12 hours on the skins, it ferments in tank and then sits on its fine lees in two 500-litre old French oak casks. Opulent and rich, it combines a nutty oxidative richness with sparkling freshness and scents of orange blossom, lemons and ripe red apple. Malolactic fermentation carried out. A super wine. Only 1,115 bottles produced.
Schist Sauvignon 2018
The latest wine produced from a small plot behind the Scary Gully vineyard as the vineyard was removed to make room for some very friendly cows. Shale soils are shallow on sandstone, the site is stunning and tends to be cold, harvesting at full maturity and low yields result in a rich, ripe Sauvignon. Four days of maceration. Almost more Loire than Adelaide Hills.
SummerTown Blanc 2019, Sauvignon Blanc
From a new 2019 vineyard that makes up for the loss of Sauvignon from Scary Gully: a block belonging to the Cottell family from 1.1 ha of relatively old vines in the beautiful Summertown /Ashton valley, a region that is home to many great vineyards. The northern aspect allows the fruit to fully ripen and leave behind many of the less desirable Sauvignon characters. It's a generous, full-bodied wine with great depth and character that still has plenty of acidity due to the cool microclimate. To drink in the park and on the beach during the summer.
