  • A Wine With Serious Star Power

    Omagh born Hollywood actor, Sam Neill, has not only dipped his toe into the wine business but has dived head first into a very successful sideline.

    Sam Neill, DCNZM, OBE, is a New Zealand actor, writer, director and producer whose acting credits include The Hunt for Red October, The Piano, Event Horizon, The Dish, two Jurassic Park films, Perfect Strangers, The Tudors, Alcatraz and Harry over a 40-year career.

    He recently finished Australian supernatural thriller Backtrack with Adrien Brody and one of his projects this year is filming the second series of the BBC's historic crime drama Peaky Blinders, in which he plays a psychotic police inspector. Neill established Two Paddocks in Gibbston in 1993 and the first vintage was in 1997. The 3ha Alex Paddocks, above the Clutha River near Alexandra, was acquired in 1998. The 53ha farm Redbank in the Earnscleugh Valley was acquired in 2000 and became the main vineyard and business headquarters.

  • Celebrate Malbec World Day

    celebrating-malbec-world-day

    Did you know that today is Malbec World Day? Probably not. It dates back only to 2011, and was inspired rather a long way off, in Argentina. It is a homage to the grape variety now earning the South American nation its own place on the world wine stage.

    It's a hard-won distinction. The Malbec vine was introduced from its native France into Argentina in 1853. Domingo Sarmiento, governor of the Mendoza province, then as now the principal vineyard region, is said to have authorised the first plantings on April 17 of that year.

    Sarmiento was a liberal intellectual at a time of mindless macho politics in Argentina, and 15 years later became the country's president. This gives some pretext for calling the Malbec a legacy grape, and the nation's enterprising winemakers have sensibly seized upon it.

  • WOW signed Woodstock The Stocks Shiraz just in!

    The 2006 release of Woodstock's single vineyard Stocks Shiraz sports a new, redesigned white label.

    woodstock-the-stocks-shiraz

    The Shiraz fruit comes from 31 rows of low-yielding north facing century old vines planted on sandy soils at Woodstock Estate. Each ancient vine only yields about three bottles of "The Stocks" per year.

    After 18 months in French oak it's rather oaky but very pleasant and classy, opening to a pronounced fragrance of lovely nutty/cedar/vanilla and walnut oak, supported by regional fruit undertones of red plum and blackberries. Smooth  and vibrant, its medium-bodied palate is beautifully long, announcing a more savoury finish with a pliant extract of grainy tannins and handsome oak overlapping its vivid red/dark fruit flavours. Despite its substantial alcohol there are no  signs of over ripeness, and it's a lot classier than many from the Vale. Drink to 2018.
