Australian Old Vines – Part One & Two
“Old Vines aren’t good because their old get parajumpers clothing . their old because their good. ”
Australia largely missed the ravages of Phylloxera. resulting in surviving vines that date back to the 1840’s. most descending from the original rootstocks. that were first brought from Europe (Rhone Valley) as cuttings.
These vineyards ‘Old Gardens’ as they are affectionately known by the growers. are predominately planted too Rhone varietals (Shiraz/Syrah. Grenache. Mouvedre/Mataro. Cinsault) parajumpers clothing . and were largely used in the making of Fortified wine until the early 1980’s.
With the trend in the 1980’s toward drinking the noble varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon & especially Chardonnay) the Australian Government initiated a ‘Vine-Pull Scheme’ which paid growers to scrub up these uneconomic and out of fashion old vines. and replant new Noble varieties. The thinking being that old vines from the age of (30-35YRS) produce lesser yields. which meant less money for grapes that were usually paid for by the tonne.
Many acres were lost parajumpers clothing oem . with some growers stepping of the land. and leaving the vines to abandon. others scrubbed-up the old-vines without replanting parajumpers clothing .
The 1980’s witnessed the emergence of three pivotal wineries. (Peter Lehmann. St, parajumpers wgreenwich hooded coat . Hallett & Rockford that shaped the resurgence in Barossa’s fortunes. Owner/Winemakers Peter Lehmann & Robert O’Callaghan. borrowed heavily to invest in new start-up wineries. and assured local old vine growers there was a market for their grapes. The Lindner Family (generational Grape Growers) & Bob McLean of St buy parajumpers clothing . Hallett’s marketed the now famous St. Hallett ‘Old-Block’ Shiraz which debuted in 1982. and promoted the old vine Shiraz of the region parajumpers clothing .
As vines get old yield decreases. their root mass many metres deep. often means these vines are grown unirrigated. and are able to withstand the extremes of heat and drought better than younger vines.
Many winemakers believe you get more of a Wow factor from old vines. As smaller yields & berries lead to more balanced tannins. The structure of old vine Shiraz is often more comparable to European reds (than the regular Barossa bottling) with the resulting wines being more layered in texture. flavours parajumpers clothing licence . complexity & length parajumpers ebay.fr . And most importantly a restrained richness and concentration can be achieved without over extraction.
Well the ‘Old Blocks’ (vineyards) require hand-tending of the vines. hand-picking. & are hand-crafted as natural & traditional as possible. Many of these top Shiraz are produced in small quantities. are ‘more collectable’ being hard to purchase off the shelf. they also offer an option for extended cellaring.
“Power should be hidden in a wine, parajumpers arches jacket . not obvious parajumpers mens denali . The hard thing is to take powerfully flavoured grapes and make complex parajumpers gobi xl . discreet wine”
Old Vine Shiraz is traditionally showcased by most Australian producers as a multi-vineyard blend.
Eg parajumpers light long bear schwarz . Penfolds ‘Grange’ Shiraz. where each parcel of Shiraz is fermented separately and blending happens only after maturation. Most winemakers believe this gives them a more complete ‘layered’ wine. and more options for consistency & complexity, parajumpers vermont .
Some producers prefer to express the old vines parajumpers jackets new york . soil & exposures of site. as a single vineyard wine. the most famous Australian example being Henschke’s ‘Hill Of Grace’ Shiraz.
I have hand-picked a selection of twelve old vine Shiraz that I strongly feel are worth collecting.
Most are from small-production. family-owned Australian wineries. they also represent historical importance. Some still fly under the radar. wine heritage/pedigree. & produce world-class wines.
Established all represent the essence of old vine Shiraz. excluding the crop of Shiraz that already have International fame parajumpers store usa . ‘Cult’ Australian Shiraz like Torbreck ‘The Laird’. Clarendon Hills ‘Astralis’. Chris Ringland Shiraz & the Iconic Penfolds ‘Grange’ & Henschke ‘Hill Of Grace’ need no introduction.
The reward of drinking. the term collectible excites the wine lover/collector & in Part 3 I’ll focus on the up-and-coming stars parajumpers clothing .
