for this region?

Clare Valley is a wine region within the Lofty Ranges of the South Australia zone. Its history dates back to the 1840s when vines were first imported to the country for planting. Now this picturesque area is a prime tourist destination, with many wineries along the “Riesling Trail” wine train route open to the public.

Many of the vineyards are situated on higher levels of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Warm summer days and cool nights are ideal for maximum grape ripening. The Rieslings grown are therefore very complex, with good acidity and often cellar-worthy. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are also very well respected from the area.

    Acidic little beast...With that many awards on the side of the bottle, I was hoping it would be better blended. Disappointing. With a little time breathing, it became more tolerable, preventing it from being poured down the drain, Read More

  • Jim Barry the Lodge Hill Dry Riesling 2010


    Tight and earthy on the nose, with early notes of lilacs followed by minty top notes over guava and melon aromas. This is powerful yet at the same time remains subtle. Flows across the palate; elegant and pure with lovely racy citrus flavors that hint of tropical fruits. The acidity is very strong yet superbly integrated within the rich fruit an... Read More

  • Kilikanoon Cabernet Sauvignon Killerman's Run 2007


    Musty earthy aroma, oak driven with subtle hints of strawberry fruit, and something medicinal. Big mouth, with cherry and menthol notes on the finish. Read More

  • Wakefield Pinot Noir 2010


    Very floral and astringent on the nose with crazy aromas of sneaker rubber, yellow wild flowers, eucalyptus, bricky earth and oatmeal, all over exotic, pomegranate seed-inflected red berry fruit. This enters the mouth with some tension from the considerable tannin structure. The cherry fruit shows a slightly burnished quality with herbal backgro... Read More
