Cellar Talk by Ray Jordan
Wine of the Week
Vineyard 28 the Alternative Arneis 2014 ($22)
If you are travelling around this summer, then the five wines I have listed this week are worth checking out at the various wineries. Vineyard 28 is a little between Mandurah and Harvey doing some good thing with this Piedmont variety. I like the crunchy, lively mouth feel here. Stacks of pear and spice with citrusy edge to it. The palate is deep and lightly textured with plenty of sustained flavour. The acid creates a clean, crisp finish. Nice current drinking wine. Go to vineyard28.com .au. 92/100

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon -Limited Stocks Remaining

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is almost gone.

 “Selling Fast – Limited Stocks Remaining”

Fermented in open stainless steel to dryness. Malolactic fermentation commences prior to the pressing and is completed in oak barrels for 2 months. The wine is then aged in a new French Oak and 2 – 4 year Old French Oak barrels for a another 6 months. 

Cabernet Sauvignon (Cab Sav)  is one of the most recognised grape varieties in the world and is grown in almost every major grape growing country today. Cab Sav is originally from the Bordeaux region of  France where is often blended with Merlot or Cabernet Franc. Despite the prominence, the grape is a said to be a relatively new variety, which was a  chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon blanc in the 17th century in south western region of France.

Limited stocks remaining, be quick before you miss out on the last of Vineyard 28’s 2011 Cab Sav.

The Geographe Wine Region – Taste of the Region

Taste of the Region

On Friday the 7th November, the Geographe celebrated recent success from the 2014 ANZ Geographe Wine Show, with a Taste of the Region, held at the Sky Bar at the newly renovated Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre. It was an opportunity for Trophy and Award winning wines from the show to be placed centre stage, and matched with local gourmet produce.

Vineyard 28’s “The Alternative” 2014 Arneis

Vineyard 28’s “The Alternative”2014 Arneis was featured as part of this event, served alongside Donnybrook Marron- (Poached Marron, Pemberton Avocado & Lime Mousse, Passionfruit Dressing) and Avocado Watermelon- (Watermelon Cube, Pemberton Avocado & Lime Mousse, Pistachio Crumbed Harvey Persian Goats Cheese).

Our 2014 Arneis received the Doral Mineral Sands Award for Best WA Alternative White Variety at the 2014 ANZ Geographe Wine Show. Mark our winemaker was very pleased to have it selected for the Taste of the Region.

The Geographe Wine Region

The Geographe Wine Region is located just 2 hours south of Perth, and is fast earning a reputation as one of Western Australia’s most exciting new wine regions. Spanning from Harvey in the North to Busselton in the South and out to Donnybrook in the East, the region hugs the Geographe Bay with the cooling afternoon sea breezes being a hallmark of a long stable growing season. Whilst Geographe is one of Australia’s most geographically diverse regions, a common theme resonates across the region of smaller vineyards and wineries owned and operated by the families you meet at the cellar doors, Wine Shows and Exhibitions. The people behind the wine labels of Geographe are passionate and proud of their Region and what it produces and also where Geographe wines are placed in the Australian and world wine scene.

Vineyard 28 is one of Geographe’s small family owned and operated vineyards. When you visit us at the cellar door, most of the time you will meet us the owners, Mark & Pippa, the people behind the wine. We grow the varieties of wine grapes we are passionate about and enjoy making wine from for you. A love of all things Italian has blossomed into a particular interest in alternative wine varieties for Mark our winemaker and alongside our more traditional range.

Vineyard 28 has something for everyone, the cellar door is brimming with colour and vibrancy, warmth and passion, creativity and wine, quilts and art all combine here.
