Churinga Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Posted by Kerri on March 27 2014 in: Churinga Vineyard: Viticulture

Hiya folks,

oh the relief when you see clouds like this coming over the horizon and knowing that your fruit is safe and sound, harvested and in fermenter with a roof over its head.. very happy!.. I mean who knows if it will rain at all but when you see it looking like this, it makes me feel better thinking we're one step ahead..

This is the view looking west over the back of Watervale.. and hopefully for everyone who still has fruit out there we won't be on the receiving end of those rain clouds. 

Harvest is certainly slowing down now with Riesling ferments happily ticking away and the last of my Churinga Cabernet Sauvignon and Mataro now in fermenter.. 

For any of you coming up to the Clare Valley for the Easter longweekend and would like to make a tasting appointment you are most welcome to email me

Look forward to seeing you up here in 5452.. Cheers, KT x

Harvest 2014 and New Release 2012…

Hiya Folks.. I only have Mataro, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache left to harvest.. there is light at the end of the tunnel.. despite some extreme weather conditions this season I am so pleased with what I have fermenting away, pressed off in barrel and still sitting on the vine.. still so much to learn in this winegrowing caper.. I'm looking forward to showing them off later in the year.

In the meantime.. for those of you who have been asking about my 2012 reds you'll be pleased to know they are now released and available.. these will be great wines for the cellar and with all of their bold tannin structure will be very long lived. Delicious sweet fruit concentration matched with the beautiful structural backbone that we see from the Clare Valley..

You'll already find Churinga Shiraz at Press* in Adelaide and my Churinga Cabernet Sauvignon at Rockpool Bar and Grill in Sydney.. get amongst it folks..

Stay well.. Cheers, KT x

Summer of Riesling last days and Vintage 2014…

Posted by Kerri on February 17 2014 in: Churinga Vineyard: Peglidis Vineyard: Riesling: Viticulture

Hiya Folks.. thanks to everyone who made it down to the Edinburgh Cellars tasting on Saturday.. and those who attended the masterclass with me also.. great day and great turn out.. wonderful to see some familiar faces.. I appreciate your support.
A reminder to those of you who are keen to celebrate the last day of Summer and of course the last day of Summer of Riesling to book a spot for the last Friday of the month luncheon at The Pot on King William Rd Hyde Park SA with me and special guest Bert Salomon from Salomon Wines in Austria. It will be a fantastic day with great food, some interesting wines and good fun people so get on down there!..

So the weather this season has certainly kept us on our toes but I'm so relieved to report that both Peglidis Vineyard and Churinga Vineyard have come out the other side of the rainfall in a very strong position. The vines and berries are both in good condition and is a testament to the great management on those sites.. I'm hoping to pick it all this week and so fingers crossed for fine weather for the rest of the week.

Watch this space for vintage news folks.. it's all about to start happening!.. Very excited.

Stay well.. Cheers, KT smile
