For cricketing fans the name Ian Botham should be very familiar as one of the most famous all-rounders in English test cricket history. Not as many know that Sir Ian has long been a passionate wine lover, having taken advantage of both the proximity of European regions from England, and a touring schedule that took him to many new world wine producing countries. I was invited late 2018 to a tasting of his recently released range of wines from a number of premium Australian regions, and I was honoured to have the opportunity to sit down with him to find out more about his love of wine and enthusiasm for crafting his own.
Peter Weinberg has been at the helm of Brand’s Laira in the Coonawarra region for almost twenty years, having relocated from the Hunter Valley with experience at Mount Pleasant. Originally from Newcastle his reason for getting into the wine industry was a love of the outdoors and good hard manual labour. On this episode of The Vincast Peter speaks about his journey to becoming the custodian of one of Coonawarra’s most historic vineyards and cellars, and how he has guided the brand since he joined the team.
I truly love visiting my wholesale customers in Geelong and try to do so as often as I can. They are some of the most welcoming and open-minded wine people I meet, and they have been incredible supporters of my own Vino Intrepido brand. One of my favourites is Union Street Wine in the middle of town, a fantastic wine store and bar that always has new and exciting things to try. I love that Lewis and Andy make some of their own wine as well, and was thrilled to have a chance to taste another wine from their By Bodega range, I’m keen to hear what your thoughts are in the comments below!
By Bodega Geelong Shiraz 2017 – RRP $35.00
Nine months after opening the 2017 vintage of the Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ white and rosé wines, I’m looking at the 2018 vintages. For me this is some of the best value on the market as far as Australian wine goes, and as always it is a privilege to be able to share my impressions. Similar to the 2017 wines there are some that stand out over the others, let me know what you think in the comments below!
Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Riesling 2018 – RRP $15.00
Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Sauvignon Blanc 2018 – RRP $15.00
Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Pinot Grigio 2018 – RRP $15.00
Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Viognier 2018 – RRP $15.00
Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Chardonnay 2018 – RRP $15.00
Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Sangiovese Rosé 2018 – RRP $15.00
Back in my wine retail days I used to sell a fair amount of Peter Lehmann Wines, being both a reliable and very affordable brand. Since that time they have become part of the Casella Family Brands company joining other important and historic brands, and the winery has gone from strength to strength. On this edition I taste ‘The Barossan’ Shiraz 2016 and I’m interested to hear what you think in the comments below!
Peter Lehmann started his own winery in 1979 after experience at iconic and historic Barossa estates, Yalumba and Saltram Estate . He started the business off the back of growers having their contracts to supply fruit cancelled, and a legend was born. Since 2013 the business has been owned by Riverina-based Casella Family Brands who submitted these and other wines for me to taste.
Peter Lehmann ‘Wigan’ Riesling 2011 – RRP $34.95
Peter Lehmann ‘Margaret’ Semillon 2011 – RRP $34.95
The name of this wine (plus the recommended retail price) clearly indicates that this is the top wine for Heartland, a blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz from the Langhorne Creek in South Australia. I was honoured to be able to taste this wine, let me know what you think in the comments below!
The next wine in a series looking at Heartland Wines from Langhorne Creek in South Australia, this time it is an estate wine, and arguably the most important variety that Ben Glaetzer works with. Let me know what you think in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you!
