The B&V vineyard was planted in 1992, on micaceous schist soils on the western escarpment of Mt. Barker on the eastern edge of the Adelaide Hills. The hot days, influenced by the Murray River plains to the east and the cold night air drainage from the central Adelaide Hills to the west, create a large diurnal temperature differential through the growing season which exactly suits Shiraz for optimal quality.
The 2015 B&V Shiraz is the first organically certified grown and vinified wine made by Petaluma.
It is a bright fruit, vibrant dense but supple dry red. Ripe red fruits mix with fragrant black pepper and licorice and complement cedar, fresh tobacco and a hint of savoury bacon fat. Spice and pepper accentuate the generous expressive long finish. The tannins are soft, sandy and abundant.
A complex, elegant and creamy vintage Croser with a nose redolent of honey and cashew and an alluring citrus lift. The palate shows wild strawberry Pinot characters alongside a more buttery nectarine Chardonnay before a soft yeasty finish buoyed by green apple acidity.
Hand-picked fruit from the Piccadilly Valley, chilled overnight then whole bunch pressed, then fermented, blended, filtered, tiraged and stored on lees for a minimum of 3 years. Disgorged at our new state of the art winery.
This blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is picked by hand and whole bunch pressed prior to fermentation in both tank and barrique. The wine is bottle aged on the lees for about a year. The grapes are grown in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia, the geology of the Hills' is particularly diverse, with different fault lines exposing a large range of soils from different geological periods. The vineyards employed are planted at quite high altitudes, up to 600 metres above sea level, and have cooler, often southerly, aspects. Dry and elegant, with a fine mousse and strawberry aromas supplied by the Pinot Noir, alongside nectarine, cashew and biscuit from the Chardonnay.
The 2019 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling is typical of the Petaluma style, late picked with citrus and orange blossom aromas. This is a concentrated dry wine with intense lime, hints of chalkiness accompanied with beautifully focused acidity.
A wonderful wine to enjoy now in its youth, but as with all Petaluma Rieslings, it will be worth the wait to watch it develop in bottle for many years, even decades to come.
