New exquisite Marlborough wine range, Petal & Stem!

New exquisite Marlborough wine range, Petal & Stem!

The Wine Company are proud to announce an exciting new range from Yealands, Petal & Stem. Sourced from New Zealand’s premier growing region, Marlborough, Petal & Stem wines embody the fresh natural acidity and succulent ripe fruit flavours that are typical of this globally renowned region, with its young, fertile soils and abundance of natural minerals. ‘Journey into the wildflowers, a secret world between the vines where insects dance from petal to stem, a flourishing  ecosystem. It’s all part of the bigger picture to protect our vines and keep pests away naturally. Every year we plant wildflowers between the vines to create a thriving little ecosystem amongst the rows. The wildflowers provide a home for the kind of insects, who in turn help us keep the unwanted pests away from our vines. So as you’re busy enjoying this wine, remember our little friends between the flowers who help us to do things both differently, and beautifully.’ Exquisite wines from New Zealand’s premier growing region Marlborough; Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Rosè & Pinot Noir.

Following presentation of the award, Alister said, “When my great-grandfather Reginald Purbrick purchased the Tahbilk property in 1925, he would not in his wildest dreams have imagined receiving such an accolade. This means so much to our family and to be able to continue his original vision for Tahbilk, and accept such an esteemed award from our own living wine legend, James Halliday, is a great honour. I feel incredibly proud of all that the Purbrick family has achieved at Tahbilk over the generations and this award recognises our unswerving commitment to traditional winemaking whilst using innovative and sustainable viticultural practices.

Wow Factor Wine

Wow Factor Wine

The 2013 McHenry Hohnen Rocky Road Vineyard Chardonnay  has been featured in James Halliday’s 2015 Wow Factor Whites supplement awarded a huge 95 Points! Whole bunch-pressed, natural yeast, matured in French barriques (20% new) for 10 months. While well and truly elegant, is a little  more open, white peach first up, grapefruit in hot pursuit; shakes itself off on the aftertaste in best canine fashion. 13.5% alc. The McHenry Hohnen Chardonnay has that wow factor because  of the interaction of a cooler southern site, heavy ironstone gravels, sloping terrain and a northerly aspect combine to produce a powerful yet refined example of Margaret River Chardonnay.  Sustainably farmed and dry-grown, fruit is hand-harvested, whole bunch-pressed, barrel fermented with no additions and bottled with minimal sulphur.
