August 2018

Don’t miss out on our legendary Tellurian Viognier 2017! This exceptional wine has just been awarded Best White Wine at the 2018 Saint Martin Heathcote Wine Show by a leading panel of Australian judges led by Sue Bell. From hundreds of entries our Viognier took out a Top Gold for the best white at the show.

Our winemaker Tobias (possibly one of the most devoted viognier fans outside of the Rhone) is understandably delighted at this success. Snap up some for your cellars as it is a limited release and will go quickly.

BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE FOR TELLURIAN

March 2018

We started our 2018 harvest start in the cool of the morning of 8th February after a relatively warm and dry season. The season started with moderate to low rain fall in spring and summer followed by warm to hot summer days balanced by cool nights where temperatures often dropped down to 14 degrees. This allowed the grapes to recover, retain freshness and slowly ripen with beautiful flavour development, structure and tannins.

A couple of extreme heat days in January and February meant smaller berries but terrific concentration of colour and flavour. Fiano, viognier, riesling marsanne and shiraz were all harvested by the end of February, grenache in early March, and later ripening crops mouvèrdre and nero d’avola picked in mid-March
