Vineyard 28 – Yvonne Chapman a Finalist

Vineyard 28 is pleased to announce that its talented resident artist, Yvonne Chapman,  has been selected as a finalist in the 2014 Australasian Quilt Challenge (AQC).

The annual AQC Challenge is a themed competition open to all. Quilts must be 125cm square and show interpretation of the theme – in 2014 the theme is ‘TEN’. This year the entries were received from every state in Australia as well as New Zealand and Canada.

The finalists work will be on display at the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne in April this year.

Yvonne has entered a piece titled “Hang Ten – the perfect wave”. “Hang Ten” is a popular surfing term, and Yvonne took her inspiration from this and decided to do a quilt that represents the surfing culture in Australia. More information is available about the Challenge, and you can see the other entrants on the AQC Website.

2013 Arneis now available

Award wining 2013 Arneis is now available for purchase.
The 2013 Arneis was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2013 Geographe Wine Show.

Picked February 2013, The Arneis is pressed within 2 hours of harvest. The juice settles then it is racked after 36 hours. The wine is then fermented for 21 days and was then left on lees for 2 weeks before wine was racked again. The wine was then further fined, cold stabilised and bottled in July. Pale yellow straw colour, with an aromatic bouquet. Intense and rich palate with nutty overtones makes a wonderful full bodied wine.

Here is what Scoop Magazine had to say about the newly released 2013 Arneis

Vineyard 28 ‘The Alternative’ Arneis, Harvey 2013
Quality is on the rise in Geographe, particularly with alternative varietals.
Arneis is a textured, often white-spiced, nutty white grape variety from Piedmont, Italy.
Here in WA it delivers all that, with more peaches and mandarins, and plenty of freshness.
Drink by pool or sea.
