Koltz Shiraz KOLTZ, winner of the Small Vignerons Award, is a small fifty tonne winery located within the elite Blewitt Springs appellation of McLaren Vale.

Shiraz was the estate's first effort, produced in small volumes, from fruit grown to a small but very special block of vine. Characterized by blueberry and earth characters, elegant with velvety tannins and superb length. Extended maceration contributes to the complexity, the aim being to construct a Shiraz which reflects the excellence of site.
The Jesuits Society
of Jesus migrated to Australia from Austria in 1848 seeking a life free from religious and political persecution
They settled at a site called Open Ranges in the beautiful Clare Valley and established Sevenhill, the oldest existing winery in the Clare Valley. Initially the main purpose of the cellars was to provide sacramental wine for religious use and this has been ongoing. Sevenhill Cellars now produce white, red and fortified wines as well as sacramental wine.
 Sevenhill

The Jesuits renamed Open Ranges Sevenhill because of their hope that the immediate area would become a centre of Catholicism for the North - another little Rome with seven hills. They even named the stream that flowed through the property The Tiber. Sevenhill Cellars are today nestled among the vineyards close to St Aloysius Church and feature a well tended grassed picnic area with tables, seats and shade trees. Sevenhill winery produces all its own fruit on 72 hectares of vineyard.

Twenty varieties of grapes are grown yielding an average annual crush of 450 tonnes. The wine is completely processed on the property including the bottling of the finished wine (35,000 cases per year). This is a far cry from the pioneering days of the first Jesuit winemaker Br Schreiner. He and Br Schneider built a wine press in 1863 capable of pressing a formidable load of 4 buckets of grapes at a time!

The production of altar wine today accounts for 30% of the winery's production. Made in the style of a sherry and in conformity with the requirements of Canon Law is sold to all Christian denominations in Australia for use in religious services. It is exported to India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Guam, Borneo and Pacific Isles.

In the history of Sevenhill Cellars, there have been 7 Jesuit Brother Winemakers. In September 1851 Br Schreiner bought some vine cuttings from Bungaree Station and planted them on the left hand side of the present road to the winery. This planting marks the beginning of Sevenhill Cellars and makes it the oldest winery in the Clare Valley. These vines were planted initially to meet the need for altar wine.

Brother John May SJ, Jesuit Winemaker Emeritus has been with Sevenhill Cellars since 1972. He was instrumental in building the winery up to the technologically advanced state of today. Winemaker Liz Heidenreich joined Sevenhill in 2005. Adelaide born and educated, 34-year old Liz has a wealth of knowledge and experience gained in Australia and overseas. "One of the historical treasures of Australia; the oft-photographed stone wine cellars are the oldest in the Clare Valley, and winemaking is still carried out under the direction of the Jesuitical Manresa Society, and in particular Brother John May. Quality is very good, particularly of the powerful Shiraz; all the wines reflect the estate-grown grapes from old vines!" -Wine Companion.com.au

Great friends and
fellow wine loving barristers, Greg Melick and Francis Douglas, had been interested in acquiring a vineyard for many years
In 2002 Greg finally found the ideal site which consisted of approximately 14 hectares of grazing land on well-drained north east facing slopes, with cracking clay over a calciferous base. The site was also frost free. Robert Drew was contracted to establish the original vineyard for planting - which has now been planted with 2.9 hectares of Riesling and 3.8 hectares of Pinot Noir. In 2006 the demands of the expanding vineyard, and Robert Drew’s own very successful vineyard, necessitated the appointment of full-time viticulturist Paul Smart.
 Pressing Matters

Paul is also a talented winemaker and the Pinot Noir is made on-site with the assistance of a Vaslin Bucher basket press and the wise counsel and assistance of neighbour and Morningside winemaker Peter Bosworth. All Pressing Matters’ Rieslings are made under the supervision of Julian Alcorso at Winemaking Tasmania.

In 2008, the tyranny of distance finally took its toll on Francis who sold his interest, but not before Greg and he decided to name the vineyard, Pressing Matters, which was inspired by a print by Tasmanian artist, Tom Samek. It was only fitting that Tom also design the label.

Production remains low but is slowly increasing and to date there has been outstanding success when exhibiting at the Royal Hobart International Wine Show (Trophy for the Most Successful Tasmanian Exhibitor 2009) and Tasmanian Wine Show (Trophy for the Most Successful Exhibitor - 2010, Best Wine of Vintage for 2008 and 2009).

While Pinot volumes remained too low to exhibit until the 2008 vintage which won a Silver medal, all but one of Pressing Matters Riesling have won at least a Silver medal including 6 Trophies and 10 Gold medals. As a result of many favourable reviews extensive enquiries have been received from retailers and restaurants but it is Pressing Matters policy, where possible, to hold wines back from release until they have had a chance to start fulfilling their true potential.

Clover Hill is
one of Australia’s principal Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier Cuvées
Founded by the Goelet family on the site of a former dairy farm in northeast Tasmania, Clover Hill was established in 1986 after an exhaustive search for an ideal site for the sole purpose of producing world class sparkling wine to rival that of the Champagne region. The site, with its rich soil, natural sloping amphitheatre and maritime climate, was deemed to be the perfect location to produce superb Méthode Traditionnelle sparkling wine, rivaling the great Champagne Houses of France. The 66 hectare Pipers River property near Lebrina overlooks Bass Straight and capitalises on its natural assets. The rich land, which was a mosaic of undulating hills and golden clover, is now also lined with picturesque vines dotted with a smattering of golden clover.
 Clover Hill

The initial varietal planting was Chardonnay, and this fruit was used to produce the inaugural 1991 Clover Hill Blanc de Blancs. Following its success, the rest of the vineyard was planted out with the traditional varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Today, with the vineyard continually producing exceptional fruit, the vast site search has certainly yielded returns. Since its debut vintage in 1991, Clover Hill has gained a reputation for its uncompromising quality, its elegance and finesse, and its distinguished Tasmanian style. The wines are crafted from the vineyard with care and attention in order to produce some of the most awarded and well-regarded sparkling wines.

Clover Hill’s commitment to excellence has been recognised with numerous accolades received from its inaugural vintage in 1991 to today. Accolades include being inducted into the Australian Sparkling Hall of Honour, winning Winestate’s Australasian Sparkling Wine of the Year being awarded Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year, twice.

Known as Méthode Traditionnelle or Méthode Champenoise, the process of crafting elegant sparkling wines in the traditional manner is a highly specialised field, placing Clover Hill in an elite group as one of the few sparkling houses in Australia to exclusively utilise this method.

Holding true to its vision to compete with the wines of Champagne, Clover Hill’s inaugural 1991 Blanc de Blancs was produced using this method, and continues to do so with every wine produced today. Widely regarded as the most premium method for producing sparkling wine, Clover Hill takes the finest elements of the Méthode Traditionnelle tradition and melds them with the unique flavours and textures produced in the vineyard by using the creativity and insight of a highly skilled winemaking team. Clover Hill was humbled when its Clover Hill Vintage Brut was proudly served during Princess Mary and Prince Frederick’s wedding celebration. Clover Hill was then further honoured with another royal appointment when it was selected as one of the four iconic Australian wines served to Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh during their 2011 Australian visit.

Clover Hill is acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest sparkling producers. With the cool climate and growing conditions of Tasmania being remarkably similar to that of the famous Champagne region of France, Clover Hill has been able to produce sparkling wines of uncompromising quality, elegance and finesse.

David Traeger is
known throughout Australia for making one of the nation's most popular Verdelho wines
Following an award winning history at Michelton, Traeger struck out on his own, and was met with immediate success. David Traeger established his operation at the Nagambie Lakes of central Victoria in 1978, focussing on Shiraz and Verdelho. Nagambie Lakes is a sub-region of the Goulburn Valley, located in the south along the Goulburn River. The soils formed on the banks of the Goulburn River are red brown, clay loams of moderate fertility with ridges of red sandy loams thrown up by the river system and more ironstone deposits located to the west.
 David Traeger

Here some classic European varieties have found their own niche such as Syrah (Shiraz) originally sourced from France's Rhone Valley and Verdelho from Portugal. The David Traeger Cellar Door is located in an historic 1870 wine cellar next to the picturesque Nagambie Lake.

David Traeger’s vineyards are located at Hughes Creek south of Nagambie, and at Graytown where a historic vineyard (planted in 1892) of Shiraz and Grenache has been brought back into production. The range of wines has deliberately been kept limited, it includes a Cabernet blend (including Merlot and Cabernet Franc), a Shiraz and the highly trumpeted Verdelho (a white variety showing strong consumer interest).

David maintains full control of the David Traeger Wines range and also holds a seat on the Dromana Estate board of directors, bringing twenty-five years of successful winemaking experience to the wine group. David Traeger wines are sold throughout the Australian eastern states markets and a growing export presence is being established in the UK, US, Singapore, Germany and Japan. David's aim at winemaking has always been, to produce elegant and distinctive wines through traditional methods, with the benefit of the latest technology.

The product range has deliberately been kept limited. The David Traeger Verdelho is an attractive and tantalizing dry white, showing all the hallmark characters of the Verdelho variety. The wine displays lemon, lime and tropical aromas with a touch of white peach, melon-like mouth-filling flavours, an excellent fine acid structure and a lingering, stylish finish.

"A very handy location sets you directly adjacent to the local Visitor's Information Centre which makes David Traeger a great place to make a start. The Verdelho here has been making waves for a few years and the Shiraz is a lovely soft mouthful of rich and ripe fruit!" -Sydney Morning Herald, "David Traeger learned much during his years as assistant winemaker at Mitchelton and knows Central Victoria well. The red wines are solidly crafted, the Verdelho interesting and surprisingly long-lived. In 2002 the business was acquired by the Dromana Estate group, but David Traeger has stayed on as winemaker!" -Wine Companion.com.au
