Ngeringa Wines
This weeks Feature Winery is Ngeringa from Mt Barker in the Adelaide Hills. A leading light in Bio-dynamics, Erinn and Janet Klein are quietly producing some of the best wines in the Adelaide Hills. We have loved watching the Ngeringa label grow over the years, with their work in the vineyard through sustainable farming the wines are getting better each year showing pure class. We are extremely excited to have their wines on offer by the glass and in tasting flights in the Tasting Room all week long, plus Erinn will be in Friday night from 5-7pm and Saturday afternoon 2-5pm to show a range of their current releases.

New Releases from Ashton Hills & Kalleske

Thursday, 5 March 2015 10:29:47 AM Australia/Sydney

Ashton Hills
Stephen George and his Ashton Hills label have been store favourites from day one at East End Cellars. An iconic Australian producer and a pioneer of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir. The popularity of Pinot from the Hills has grown exponentially over the past few years with so many great new producers and growers. But Ashton Hills has remained the benchmark. The winery is basic, an earth floor and next to no equipment whatsoever. The Pinot fruit is destemmed with a small, customised, gentle destemmer that keeps as many whole berries as possible. The fruit is then basket pressed and the wine is made without any sulphur additions until bottling. Some whole bunches are included, the percentage varying according to vintage. The Pinots are mostly raised in aged, neutral French hogshead barrels. The Reserve Pinot may see some new oak, but again, the percentage depends entirely on the vintage. These are not wines made to a recipe.


Kalleske
This weeks feature winery is the bidynamic Barossa estate; Kalleske. The Kalleske family consider themselves caretakers of the land and not only want to maintain the environment but improve it for future generations. Quite a noble statement. What we love about the wines from Kalleske is their truthful approach. Wines that speak of the Barossa, rich and robust reds that we know the area is renowned for with thoughtful winemaking. They also don't mind an experiment, like their "Plenarius" Viognier that spends 7 days on skins and 10 months in oak, bottled unfined & unfiltered with a cloudy, orangey-amber colour and no added sulphites. The result is textural, exotic, slightly tannic, different and delicious.

Pushing the Boundaries: New Wave Wine

Thursday, 26 February 2015 4:45:42 PM Australia/Sydney

Pushing the Boundaries: New Wave Wine

The term 'natural wine' is often used to describe wines of this nature with minimal intervention, a term we hesitate to use, even though it's essentially the common thread here. Reason being; there's still just too much debate as to what the term actually means. There are no laws to govern what is written on labels in this regard.

Riesling

From the new release 2014 Grosset wines, the first release of Riesling legend John Vickery's eponymous wine to a cheeky half bottle of Tom Shobbrooks textural Eden Valley, there is enough here to keep anyone cool...

New Release Rockford and SC Pannell amongst other great Shiraz. Plus more tastings...

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 5:53:56 PM Australia/Sydney

Stylish Shiraz
In this week’s e-mail we are featuring four fantastic forms of the most popular variety Shiraz (Syrah)... Four wines from across Australia, all very different but outstanding wines in their own way. Rockford Basket Press Shiraz has for years been one of our top selling Barossa Shiraz (if only we could get more!) the 2011 is a slight style change, due to the cooler vintage but it still has that Rockford class. An EEC staff favourite the SC Pannell Syrah is back, and the 2013 is another triumph for Steve, so slick, so fresh, so very drinkable... James Erskine is back with his Spring Releases, his Alessa Shiraz is beautifully made wholesome wine, that exudes James's' dynamic nature and energy. Don't just stop at his Shiraz, try his 2014 Jauma Biggles Grenache too, a bunchy, bright red with luscious fruit that oozes texture. Lastly but by no means less the 2012 Friends of Punch Shiraz. It's no secret 2012 was a stellar vintage for the Yarra Valley and this elegant Shiraz from Punch shows great depth of fruit without ever feeling heavy...
