A multi-regional blend from various vineyards in South Eastern Australia. This was harvested relatively early in the season after warm weather in spring contributed to an early budburst.

A blend from two vineyards in the heartland of Australian wine-grape-growing. The grapes were harvested relatively early after a typical warm growing season which suits Shiraz. Fruit ripened well with good flavour development and showed good varietal character. The wine was fermented quite slowly at moderate temperatures in tanks with simultaneous exposure to oak. These techniques helped retain the pronounced fruit flavours and complexity. Excellent partner to spicy food.

2005 GEELEE-CORPORATE CABERNET MERLOT

GEELEE - CORPORATE RANGES

The Cabernet Merlot combines 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot from fruit grown on vineyards and those of respected growers in the region. An excellent growing season in 2006 allowed maximum development of varietal characters and concentration of flavours in the vineyard, and both varieties were picked at optimum ripeness. After crushing and de-stemming, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks on skins for seven days, to bring out the maximum colour and flavour. After initial fermentation, the wine was transferred to a combination of French and American hogsheads for 14 months, to build complexity, structure and balance before bottling. The deep crimson colour indicates a youthful wine which is followed by aromas of sweet ripe berry fruits and hints of herbal mint and subtle tobacco and spices. On the palate black cherry, bramble and liquorice flavours are present with elegant oak and soft approachable tannins. The wine has a fresh yet complex finish with well integrated oak balanced with fruit flavours. This easy-drinking wine is ready to enjoy now, but will benefit from short term cellaring for added structure. It is an excellent match with beef ragout, barbequed meats and hearty tomato dishes.

CHINESE VERSION

1998 PARTIALLY OAKED CHARDONNAY

Tasting Notes
The wine is crystal-clear with an enticing mid-straw colour and lime hues. The bouquet is an intense mixture of tropical fruits including mango skin, ripe peach and syrupy pineapples with a dusty oak, almond and bread like complexity. The wine is full bodied and intensely flavoured with an inconspicuous spicy oak background, excellent fruit weight and balanced acidity.
Cellar life: 0-5 years.

Winemaking
Special techniques were utilised in a deliberate attempt to provide complexity yet approachability for those who prefer fruit freshness to predominate in their Chardonnay wines. Around ninety percent of the wine was fermented without the influence of Oak. A combination of oxidative handling, lees stirring, warm ferments, partial Malo Lactic Fermentation, and fermentation in French Oak barriques were used to introduce subtle complexities into the blend.

1998 RESERVE SAUVIGNON BLANC

Tasting Notes
While young this wine will remain almost transparent with bright green tints, but with time will transform into a deep autumn yellow. Whilst somewhat restrained in it’s youth, the aromas of this wine are a complex blend of sliced capsicum, green apples, peaches, fresh cream rose buds and a hint of fresh bread. The striking feature of this wine is the palate viscosity and mouth filling varietal intensity, which combines with a mineral complexity unique to it’s terroir. The natural composition of the grape was exceptional in 1998, providing the wine with a long, lively and warming finish.
Cellar Life: 0-10 years.

Winemaking
The wine was made from the best parcels of Estate fruit employing very cold tank fermentation, ageing on lees and reductive winemaking. This wine was then blended with a small proportion of wine fermented and aged in French Oak Barriques.
Release October 1998

Winemaking
Fruit from the Estate was harvested at night and kept very cool to retain varietal intensity.

Release October 1998

1997 BOTRYTISED SEMILLON

Tasting Notes
The wine colour is a lustrous intense gold colour with orange and honey tints. The bouquet is that of raisins, dried apricots and orange marmalade with floral notes of jasmine and hints of smoky flint-like complexity. The palate is a honeyed, luscious mouthful with uncommon intensity and an acidity which harmoniously balances the botrytised sweetness.
Cellar life: 0-10 years.

Winemaking
The extremely old style of wine is most commonly associated with the right bank Sauternes region near the famous city of Bordeaux in the south west of France. In this region Semillon is one of the endemic varieties. Over many years vignerons found that under certain climatic conditions this fruit would become infected with a specialised fungus known as Botrytis Cinerea. The thin skin of this variety made an attractive target for the organism. This fungus would gradually suck the moisture from the exposed fruit concentrating all constituents and leaving raisin like berries on the bunches. When this fruit was pressed and fermented, the result would be a lusciously sweet yet refreshing wine which was extremely viscous and intense in flavour. Baldivis Estate has produced an Australian version of this style.
