gestalt/gę’SHtält/- an organized whole that is considered to be greater than the sum of its parts.

Gestalt Wines was born in 2012 from a single wine made from a stunning Grenache vineyard in Williamstown, South Australia. Now based in the Adelaide Hills, the label has grown organically each year in the search for similar quality vines from the surrounding Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley and Barossa Valley wine regions. Our philosophy is based on how to most gently press premium grapes from vineyards using organic practices. When the fruits of this labour get to the winery in pristine condition, most of the work is already done. To retain the freshness and intensity which rewards this approach, we use natural ferments with minimal intervention all the way to bottling.

Jackson Farrow

Rubaiyat (pronounced Roo-by-at)

Jackson Farrow created Rubaiyat Wines as an ode to the 12th century Persian poet Omar Khayyam, who is renowned for his work Rubaiyat. It was first translated into English in the late 19th Century by Edward Fitzgerald and has been part of the literary canon ever since, going through numerous translations by many other linguists (but none quite reaching the heights of the original). The poem muses on many topics – love, life and its transience, free will, the stars and the heavens - but one thread that pops up throughout is the love of wine and the pleasure it brings. This expression of love and balance is conveyed in Jackson’s wine.

Eden Valley

Phil Lehmann

Eden Hall wines is a family owned boutique winery established in 1997 by David and Mardi Hall in the high country of the beautiful Eden Valley. A total of 33 hectares is planted to red varieties consisting of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The white varieties include Riesling, Viognier and more recently Grüner Veltliner. The wines are made from 100% estate grown fruit by 2017 Winemaker of the Year finalist, Phil Lehmann (Son of the late great “Peter”), and the vineyard is tendered to by fourth generation grape grower and 2018 Barossa Viticulturist of the Year, Dan Falkenberg. The wineries focus and philosophy is to produce high quality wines using ecofriendly, sustainable land management practices that ensure both long term landscape and viticultural viability. The vineyard is rated in the top 3 vineyards in the Barossa under the SAW program. (Sustainable Australia Winegrowing).

Eden Valley

Domenic Torzi

Torzi Matthews, a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews have passion and the firm conviction of appreciating the value of heritage tradition in the crafting of their wines and olive produce. In 1996 we stumbled across a small, frost-pocketed hollow in the beautiful Mt McKenzie, Eden Valley and fell in love with the area for its remoteness and its diverse thin soils. The rationale was quite simple: this land would produce low yields of fruit which in turn would translate into flavoursome European style wines – the style of wines needed to match our Mediterranean food. The vines went in, the frosts came, the yields were low and the wines were created.

John Vickery is the acknowledged old master of Riesling in Australia, with an illustrious career spanning nearly sixty years, culminating in the extraordinary awards tally of more than fifty Trophies and over four hundred Gold Medals. The Vickery label is more then just a legacy for John’s stellar career and countless awards; it is the preservation of his winemaking methods, that will be passed on for generations to come for the benefit of all lovers of classic Australian Riesling.

Clare Valley

Kevin Mitchell

Kevin Mitchell and Kathleen Bourne purchased the picturesque Woodvale property in
Penwortham’s Skilly Valley in 2004 with a view to plant a vineyard and produce their own
wine. Woodvale Vintners is the product of Kevin’s continual striving for perfection.
Never resting on his laurels, Kevin’s close attention to the smallest detail from the vineyard through to the finished packaged product is borne out by the 2018 Halliday Wine Companion accolade as one of Australia’s Top Ten New Wineries after achieving 5 stars on it’s debut review. After planting 5 acres of Pinot Gris and 5 acres of Riesling, in 2006, they nurtured the vines with the aid of Kevin’s father Mort Mitchell, sourcing fruit from friends vineyards and using their own grapes.

Coonawarra

Andrew Hardy & Keeda Zilm & James Lienert

John and Faye Parker established Parker Coonawarra Estate in 1985 after a career-long interest in the region. The winery’s first release of the 1988 vintage of First Growth was met with outstanding success, winning the Penfold Hyland Trophy in Perth.

It was also judged the 6th highest rated Bordeaux-Style in the 1991 International Wine Challenge in London. This was the first step in establishing Parker Coonawarra Estate’s reputation for producing wines of outstanding quality and longevity. Five Star Halliday Rated Winery, Langton’s Classified 2015 Terra Rossa Cab: “There is more finesse to the Parker wines of late. This beauty right up there with its atypical, pleasing aromas of blackberry and boysenberries, the sprinkle of spice, freshly rolled tobacco, dried mint and earth. The palate is very neatly contained, textured tannins, balanced and long finish” 95 points Halliday Wine Companion 2016 95 Block ‘...A classy, full-bodied Bordeaux blend, petit verdot filling in any holes in the profile of the cabernet, resulting in a wine that won’t take a backward step in the lifetime of most who buy it.’ 96 points – James Halliday

Mclaren Vale

Kym Teusner, Warwick Murray, Todd Riethmuller

Round Two was a dream of a couple of mates. Well known in their own fields this was an
venture of personal satisfaction and as such they called themselves The Mute Vintners – a quiet endeavour aiming at making good quality, single vineyard Barossa wines that reach the consumers at the right price. In 1990 a site was selected in the foothills of Angaston, just below Eden Valley, it suited what the guys were looking for perfectly and the vineyard was planted. A gentle western aspect with east west row orientation to take full advantage of the long sunny Barossa afternoons. Good quality, good value – Grown, made and bottled by Warwick Murray, Todd Riethmuller and Kym Teusner.

South Australia Multi-regional

Andrew Hardy & Keeda Zilm & James Lienert

During a fleeting half century in the global wine community, the Hesketh family has always followed the path less travelled by. It is appropriate therefore, that their winemaking combines the traditional elements of vineyard selection and hands on winemaking, with a contemporary approach to the wines they make, and where they make them.

Ebenezer Shiraz - James Halliday, 95 points
This is a seriously good Barossa shiraz that brings out the best modern day style that is generous and conscious of the generations that have gone before it. The colour is great, plum and blackberry fruit in the epicentre of the fruit spectrum, oak tannins precisely positioned.

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Kym Teusner

It began in 2001 when Kym was a party to a conversation between fifth generation grape growing brothers Steve and Leon Riebke, their 90 year old Grenache vineyard was facing destruction due to low grape prices on offer by the big guns. From there Kym Teusner and Michael Page hatched a plan, scratched together some money, saved the vineyard and the Teusner winery was born with the first release of Joshua in 2002.
