Seven New Releases! And The Wine Club!
We are very excited to have released seven new wines last week for your drinking pleasure! Five 2015 whites and four 2014 reds, the last of the reds to be released from last year's vintage. Some classics and some new and intriguing styles to try.
The 2015 is the second release for the Riesling, the Gewurztraminer and the Vermentino. All have been favourites in the range and the new releases from this vintage are at least as delicious. The Gewurztraminer was the first wine to sell out last year as we only receive a small parcel of fruit and we've only made 33 dozen! We suspect it will sell out quickly so get in to cellar door or online and try some before it disappears.
New to the range of white wines are the 2015 Arneis and Pinot Blanc. Again fruit sourced from our growers in the Alpine Valleys and both varieties grown is small quantities in Australia so they're not wines that everyone has tried .... we think you'll enjoy these examples and we'd love to see you at cellar door to pour them and discuss them with you.
In the reds we have released the 2014 Tempanillo and Shiraz. Both needed more time in barrel to mature and develop than our previous two releases, and the wait has been worth it. Showing that cool climate combination of intense varietal fruit character and elegant structure.
All the new releases are currently available for tasting and purchase at Cellar Door and by the glass, bottle or to take away when you visit Birbante Pizzeria, who take over from Cellar Door att 5.30 of an evening.
They are also available online - check out the online store for details.
Or perhaps the easiest way to try them is to join the newly minted Billy Button Wine Club! Click on the Wine Club tab at the top of the page and find out full details.
