Hobbs

 

Situated in the Ranges of the Barossa Valley in South Australia, Hobbs Wines takes grapes from its family-held vineyard to produce wines that make a statement about excellence. Production here is small; our largest production of any one wine is 300 dozen. Grapes with a hundred-year pedigree are carefully nurtured and crafted to make wines with exceptional character. Hobbs wines are now gaining recognition as being amongst the worlds best. The vineyard has only 15 acres of vines and grows some of the Barossa's oldest Shiraz vines planted at the turn of the last century. The vineyard is situated in the Barossa Ranges where the cooler climate and distinct soil structure provide idyllic conditions to produce fruit of a unique and exceptional quality.

They have two winemakers. Chris Ringland their neighbour and friend was their original winemaker. Chris has been the winemaker at Rockford's and has his own label "Three Rivers" now "Chris Ringland Shiraz".

Chris is an outstanding winemaker. Hobbs relationship with Chris is one that was simply meant to happen. Chris has been their friend, next-door neighbour and consultant winemaker since day one. He lives by the ideal of growing superb quality fruit to make great wine. They have enjoyed many a long and animated discussion with Chris in the vineyard, as well as over good meals and a glass or two of what they make. It’s been enjoyable time, well spent on blending thoughts and ideas that have helped form the individual styles of our wines. To this day Chris remains our consultant.

Their other wine maker is Pete Schell from Spinifex Wines. He was the head winemaker at Turkey Flat before starting out on his own. They believe Pete is one of the very best winemakers around. He has a sensational palate and nose and superb winemaking skills. He believes in the quality and power of fruit. Pete has great integrity and honesty and this comes through in his approach to winemaking.

The combination of Chris's and Pete's skill, their belief in our fruit, and their desire to make only wines of exceptional quality, are fast making Hobbs one of Australia’s true premium labels.
