Sunday 6th September
Dear friends and wine enthusiasts
The days are getting visibly longer and the buds on the vines are swelling ready to burst out with their young green and pink foliage. So it’s imperative to finish the pruning this week and we should, all going well.
To coincide with the release of our 2013 Single Vineyard Pinot, Gourmet Traveller Wine was kind enough to publish their August/September edition with an article about “single vineyard sites with pinot”. Our 2013 Single Vineyard Pinot was well reviewed,
“shows excellent concentration with rich, red cherry fruit and cedary oak combining well on the nose. Forest floor flavours are developing, but there’s still sweet fruit. Bold raspberry and boysenberry with a hint of warm earth, oak frames the finish.”
To celebrate the launch of our latest estate Pinot on Fathers Day, Sunday 6th September we are offering the special price of $420.00 a dozen, a great saving as RRP is $44.00 per bottle or $528 a dozen. (Six packs available at $210.00 for this event.) If you can’t make it to the winery on the day, you can order by calling or emailing the winery direct.
So Sunday the 6th of September Only, come and try this gorgeous Pinot and to complement the wine we will be serving our classic Cheese platters
Looks like October will be a very busy time at Wedgetail with the Nillumbik shire Open Farm Day, and vineyard tours here on Sunday 4th of October (the day after Grand Final) and the famous Open Cellars on the Saturday & Sunday 17th & 18thof October.
PS. We still have a few bottles of vintage Cabernet and Shiraz at the cellar door (I can’t drink it all so please give us a hand).

Our Latest News Ben Thomas Reviews the Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011 The Weekly Review 4 ½ / 5 Edgy, cool-climate Shiraz may not be to everyone’s taste, but here’s a good example. Only 150 cases of this wine, which was matured in 50 per cent new oak, were made. Perfumedand funky, cherry, redcurrant, stalky, sappy, meaty aromas are a delight. A silky smooth texture – it’s satin-like – bright acid and fine tannins support sweet and sour flavours of cherry, beetroot, cranberry, loam and spice. For the record, this is a style I love. Food match Chateaubriand
Decanter “The most Influential UK Wine Magazine” has just reviewed the 2009 Wedgetail estate Pinot Noir Highly Recommended
Magic occurs in bottles like it does around people. In this case naturally forming bubbles gather in a bottle of chardonnay forming a bunch of grapes, the molecular expression was stronger than the physical composition.
