Description

Enjoying a climate reminiscent of Portugal’s famous Duoro Valley, Beltana Springs’ vines are grown in ideal conditions of cold winter dormancy and hot, dry summers. First planted in 2000 on the property’s best Red Gum soils, the vines of Beltana Springs are hand-picked from low yielding vines to ensure premium ripe grape extraction. Beltana Springs wines are exported to the UK, US and other major markets, but also available for purchase on their website.

The Wines

The Shiraz is Beltana Springs’ flagship wine and was awarded the Bronze medal at the West Australian Wheatbelt Wine Awards. A deep purple-hue with a hint of Australian forest, the wine is aged for twenty four months in new European oak barrels, giving added complexity and a smooth and long finish. Beltana’s Grenache, conversely, presents a rich and clear colour, offering red berries and the menthol of the Red Gums growing within the vineyard. Also matured in new European oak, the Grenache’s palate is full-bodied and intensely flavoured, with strong, ripe tannins and a long finish. The vineyard also offers a Grenache Rose and a Cabernet Sauvignon.

Coorinja produces a large selection of table and fortified wines including Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet-Shiraz, Port, Sherry, Muscat, Liqueur Muscat, Ginger Wine and Marsala. The wines are handpicked by the Wood family and their friends and pressed in an old wooden basket press, following the same family tradition used for over five generations.

Description

Established in 1998 on the outskirts of York, York Wines’ vineyard is owned and operated by Mick and Jeni Delich. Mick was born in the Swan Valley and was raised on his parents’ 16-acre Grenache vineyard. Learning the art of wine making from his father and other local growers, Mick still practices the traditional art of wine making in the ‘old fashioned’ way.

The York Wines’ vineyard consists of 6.5 acres of planted vines that are dry grown, relying solely on natural precipitation. Due to the low annual rainfall of York, the vines are very low yielding, but produce high quality fruit with intense colours and flavours.

The Wines

The vineyard produces three varieties of red wine; Grenache, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Shiraz, all of which are preservative and additive-free.
