Rhone Valley Chateauneuf du Pape vineyardsThe Rhone valley can be split into the northern region, home to the famous wines of Hermitage and Cote Rotie grand crus and the south which is famous for Chateauneuf du Pape.

The often dramatic hillside location for the northern Rhone means that the grapes are harvested by hand as machines are unable to access the steep terrains. Syrah is the only grape allowed to make the red wine although the producers are allowed to add up to 20% of white grapes.

The distinctive feature of the vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape are the large pebble-like stones which dominate surface. The red wines are predominantly made from Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Grenache. The syrah grape ages particularly well and we recommend ten years of cellaring from the better vintages in order to allow more complexity to develop in these wines.

Wine road signThe north european location of these vineyards usually means a battle to harvest at a time where optimum fruit is in harmony with the generally higher acidity of these wines. In the better vintages enjoying Indian summers, these wines can be great value and are also ageworthy.

Sancerre and Pouilly Fume are the leading white wines and Anjou, Bourgeuil St Nicolas and Chinon well known for the Cabernet Franc and Gamay dominated red wines. The region is unjustly underrated for the sweet wines, notably the Quart de Chaumes and the Coteaux du Layon which can be ripe, fresh and a delicious aperitif.

New world wines: Rusden barrel storeWe are fairly limited in terms of new world wines, as we tend to favour the traditional wine growing areas of France and Italy. However we will continue to offer wines that simply, stand out from the crowd, in terms of quality and style.

The Rusden estate in South Australia is such a wine. There was a time when many Australian wine were called `fruit bombs’ because of the often high levels of alcohol. However, this is most definitely NOT the style of the Rusden family who make red wines with balance, purity and freshness.
