Koltz - McLaren Vale, SA
Winemaker: Mark Day
Koltz began as a small wine label in 1995 when winemaker Mark Day and Anna Koltunow made their first wine using grapes from the Bottin Vineyard in McLaren Vale. Since that time Koltz has evolved and now specialises in shiraz and shiraz blends from the McLaren Vale region, renowned for its shiraz wines worldwide. Mark Day has worked as a wine maker for Maxwell Wines and Wirra Wirra in McLaren Vale and as a consultant in Italy and France over the last 6 European vintages.
Koltz is a very small producer and all their wines are hand crafted using traditional methods in that they are fermented in open vats and when dry, basket pressed and put to oak. We try to make wines that are individual and reflect our philosophy that wines should be complex but a pleasure to drink at any stage of their evolution.

Kanta, Balhannah - Adelaide Hills, SA
Winemaker: Egon Müller
"The internationalisation of Australian riesling continues apace! This collaboration between renowned German winemaker Egon Müller, Steve Pannell and Michael Andrewartha from Adelaide’s East End Cellars is a stunningly textured and remarkably complex riesling made from fruit taken from the Shaw and Smith vineyard at Balhannah in the Adelaide Hills. A floral perfume of lime zest, musky spices, chalk and mineral precedes a supple but grippy palate with a slightly meaty texture of creamy phenolics. With six months on lees after a natural yeast fermentation it’s little wonder there’s plenty of yeast-derived flavour and mouthfeel. Its lingering core of pear, apple and rose oil flavour culminates in a savoury finish wrapped in soft acids.” (Adelaide Hills, $28 retail, approx., 18.5/20 = 94/100, drink 2010-2013)"
Jeremy Oliver, Feb 14, 2006 - 2005 Kanta
"Made at the Shaw & Smith winery for Germany's Mosel Riesling king, Egon Muller, this is a big improvement on the '05 and subtly different from most Australian rieslings - probably thanks to Muller's input. It's bright and fresh and vital, yet has a curiously spicy, almost gewurz-like intensity and a youthful restraint that suggests it will age well. It has a real delicacy on the palate and is dry but not tart or austere - instead, it's smooth and inviting. The palate is racy, refined and long and it's less developed than most '06 South Australian rieslings. A very impressive alternative style. Drink now to five-plus years. 94/100."
Wine of the Week - Kanta Adelaide Hills Riesling, 2006 'Tastings' by Huon Hooke - Good Living, Sydney Morning Herald. 22.05.07
“A German take on Riesling… This joint venture between German winemaker Egon Muller and Adelaide wine merchant Michael Andrewartha had produced a modern classic: exquisite crunchy green apples, and a whisper of grapey sweetness. Yum”

Some Young Punks - Clare Valley, SA
Winemakers/the Punks: Jen Gardner, Colin McBryde, Nic Bourke
“The ethos is simple, self centred, and just a little arrogant - We make charismatic wines that are true to what we think ‘wine’ should be about. If someone doesn’t like the way we do it then they had better put the bottle down because there’s already not enough to go around. Each wine, each vintage, and each label is a moment that will never come again - a winemaker should only ever promise to be consistently good, never just consistent. Each time we make a wine it may be the last wine we make - and if it isn’t worthy of being the last then it will never wear the Some Young Punks name. We believe that awesome wine is a powerful aid to creativity; there is always the danger that while drinking a bottle of Punks you may also be pushed to acts of random winemaking, it definitely keeps us ticking over.”
