Xavier Bizot can make wine anywhere he pleases, he is a Bollinger and grew up amongst the Vignobles Superieurs of Champagne. Bizot has chosen to make wine alongside Brian Croser's family, from grapes harvested off three magnificent sites, on two paradoxically varied terrains. Planted to the salubrious Terra rosa soils atop an invaluable archeological dig at Wrattonbully, rich with the undisturbed fossils of ancient Cenozoic sea animals, Crayeres Vineyard was established right across the road from Tapanappa's illustrious Whalebone. The weather here is astonishingly similar to Bordeaux and makes an awesome Cabernet Franc. Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser are also.. The twin tales of terre a terre»
The story of Langmeil begins with early Barossa settlement, planted to Shiraz by Christian Auricht in the 1840s, the estate vineyards were restored by the Lindner and Bitter families during the 1990s. Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore.

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»
Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot.. It's irrewarra by farr»

Evans Tate Redbrook Reserve Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia
Shiraz is selected from vines grown to the central and northern part of Margaret River, parcels which have shown remarkable balance year after year, consistently yielding loose, intensely flavoured bunches with small berry size, critical to the Evans & Tate style. The superlative ripening conditions allow flavour and tannin development to catch up with sugar ripeness, producing an intensely coloured wine with ripe, concentrated flavours and fine, soft tannins. Evans & Tate have spared no expense and have pulled all the stops to deliver a world class Shiraz.

All grapes are hand picked throughout the cool of early morning, a choice parcel is included as whole bunches. The musts are transferred to a small fermenter and cold soaked at 5C for several days, followed by ten days of ferment at 22C to 24C. Juices are rack and returned over the cap for the gentle extraction of colour and tannin. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed and pressings returned to the free runs, adding structure and style to the finished wine. Components are matured a year or more in a combination of seasoned and new French oak puncheons, hogsheads and barriques. Every batch represents an individual vineyard block and is kept separate until final assemblage.
Dense purple black. Bright mulberry and plum fruit aromas, lifted notes of spice and black pepper with a delicate layer of cedar and toast from barrel maturation. Mulberry, blood plum and pepper flavours seamlessly integrate with refined oak characters of cedar, toast and spice. Rich on the tongue with impressive overall integration and fruit intensity. The Margaret River of choice, to mate with seared rib and red wine jus.

Evans Tate
Evans & Tate were at the forefront of the Margaret River's rise to international recognition as one of the world's great winegrowing appellations

Like many tales, Evans & Tate's does not begin in Australia. Lionel Teitelbaum was born in 1899 in a village called Nicopol in the Ukraine. Still a young boy when he emigrated to Australia in 1909, Lionel was bounding with confidence and enthusiasm. Such energy translated into a successful family and business life, creating a solid foundation for the future Tate generations. Lionel ensured that his son John enjoyed the benefits of an education as well as an appreciation of cultural pursuits including art, music and wine.

Evans Tate

As his business career matured, John Tate was able to turn one of his lifelong dreams into reality when he purchased a small vineyard with friend and business partner John Evans. The following year the Tate involvement in the industry became absolute with the purchase of a small winery called Gnangara Wines, located in the historic Swan Valley, just north of Perth.

The primary aim at Evans & Tate is to make wines that are truly expressive of the best terroirs within the Margaret River region. A state of the art 7500 tonne crush winery, built with this philosophy in mind, is sited at the Lionel Vineyard in Jindong. The winery reflects the professionalism and commitment shown in all areas of the company.

Evans & Tate have invested heavily in cutting edge winemaking equipment, impressive stocks of French and American oak, and the best laboratory facilities. The winery is close to all major vineyard sites from which grapes can be sourced, which gives the winemakers enough freedom to make each parcel of fruit in accordance with it's specific flavour profile and attributes.

Evans Tate

The wines of Evans & Tate have consistently merited high critical acclaim and accolades from peers and public alike. Evans & Tate has created an enviable show record over the years receiving numerous trophies and gold medals at both domestic and international competitions. With each individual style of wine, the team looks to achieve intensity of flavour, complexity and regional character.

"From its Swan Valley base 30 years ago, Evans & Tate became the largest Margaret River winery and producer. Having increased its estate vineyard holdings with the establishment of a large planting in the Jindong area, it raised substantial capital by listing on the Stock Exchange. It then turned its attention eastwards, with the acquisition of Oakridge Estate in the Yarra Valley, followed by Cranswick Wines (since sold). It became a casualty of the downturn in the market in 2005, its future direction uncertain, a merger with a US company aborted in March '07. Throughout all this turmoil, the high quality of its Margaret River wines has been maintained." -James Halliday

No single achievement has meant more to the winemaking team than the Trophy for Best Red Wine of the Competition at the 2000 International Wine Challenge in London for Evans & Tate 1999 Margaret River Shiraz. This award was especially significant as it validated the Evans & Tate viticultural and vinicultural philosophy, whilst crystallizing the Margaret River region as a truly world class winegrowing appellation.
