Winter 2016

BARONS OF BAROSSA
WINE SOCIETY 70TH ANNIVERSARY
SHIRAZ 2014

One of our most loyal winemaking partners, Barons of Barossa, has crafted a wine specifically to commemorate our 70th anniversary as Australia’s original wine club. Made from select parcels, the Barons of Barossa Wine Society 70th Anniversary Shiraz 2014 is a beautiful wine and one that we are proud to showcase as our Best in Society Winter Red for 2016.

"Brilliant purple and opaque cherry hues. Great brightness of fruit with lifted spicy blackberry florals and intense layers of dark plum, earth and coffee. The palate is complex with spice, juicy cassis and dark plum, while the tannins are complex with refreshing acidity. This wine will age extremely well over the long term!" Barossa Baron and Winemaker Colin Glaetzer

LECONFIELD WINEMAKER’S RESERVE
COONAWARRA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

Hailing from the world famous Coonawarra comes this sophisticated, elegant and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon from Leconfield – a leading family winery with a genuine passion for producing the best Cabernet Sauvignon from exceptional Coonawarra fruit.

"The beauty in this wine lies in its power, yet elegance; its persistence and length; its aroma of fully ripened, cool climate Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Fine grained French oak plays a diminutive yet important role to contribute cedar and nutmeg nuances." Winemaker Paul Gordon.

CHARDONNAY 2015

From the outstanding vintage of 2015 comes this Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, a wine of blockbuster quality with a magical combination of fruit, texture and complexity.

"Freshly picked quinces and apples lift from the glass with hints of citrus blossom and shortcrust pastry. Barrel fermentation accentuates the fruit, lending great texture to the spiced poached pear, pithy lemon and white peach on the palate. Complexing notes of flint, cashew and oatmeal bring further interest to the crunchy natural acidity on the finish,” Shane Harris, Winemaker.

Our Best in Society wine plan is at the heart of our member programme; it exemplifies our partnership with our loyal winemakers, who generously devote their time and effort into crafting wines of exceptional quality at reasonable prices, exclusive our members.

CLOUDBREAK
WINEMAKERS RESERVE
SAUVIGNON BLANC 2015

The perfect vineyard to find superior quality fruit worthy of a Best in Society wine can be found in the heart of cool-climate Adelaide Hills, Australia’s premier Sauvignon Blanc region. Using fruit from this vineyard, grown by viticulturist Randal Tomich, winemaker Simon Greenleaf created our stunning Best in Society Spring White 2015. The finest grapes were carefully selected and picked over a period of three weeks in order first to capture herbaceous and citrus flavours, then riper tropical fruits. The result is a well-balanced wine with exceptional purity of fruit flavour, a great structure and fantastic mouthfeel: Cloudbreak Winemakers Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2015.

"The wine has a delicate bouquet of lemon/lime citrus, grassy notes and subtle tropical fruit. The nose is fresh and fragrant and the palate is well balanced, crisp and long with enduring citrus and grassy characters." Simon Greenleaf, Winemaker.
