The international face of wine! - 27 Feb 14

Domain Road Vineyard - The international face of wine! - <p></p>

Viticulture takes on an international flavour!   Fiona has been assisted over the summer months in the vineyard by an interesting group of young people - with representatives from Chile, France, England, Germany, China, Korea and Malaysia there has never been a shortage of fascinating tales and life experiences.  Here the group appears to be praying for a good harvest after all their hard work but are in fact marking the Chinese New Year (the wearing of red was compulsory that day!).

Domain Road Vineyard - A taste of Paradise! - <p></p>

A taste of Paradise! People visiting us this summer have been able to experience Paradise ahead of time......a drop of this exquisite wine transports you to a better place!!  Not for the fainthearted, lovers of older pinots relish the richness of the aroma and depth of flavour of this special wine, soon to be celebrating its 5th birthday.  If you are in Bannockburn in the next couple of months call by and try a taste of Paradise.

Cuisine Riesling results - 13 Feb 14

Domain Road Vineyard - Cuisine Riesling results - <p></p>

Five stars from Cuisine!!!  Our 2013 Water Race Riesling received 5 stars and a top 10 rating in the latest issue of Cuisine magazine.  We are delighted with this result - the latest in a string of recognition that our Rieslings have received over the years.  

John Saker wrote: " A brilliant line up raised the riesling quality bar still further" and judge Dan Dineen remarked " As soon as we started judging the rieslings, our world went from 50 shades of gris to full high-defintion colour -it was blindingly obvious why this much undervalued variety is so noble.  The 2013 and 2012 rieslings from this country are exquisite!"  Cameron Douglas added - "Riesling can be fragrant and alluring, seductive and charming.  The best of what we tasted showed all these qualities".

Even though we have not yet released the Riesling it can be purchased from us on-line at the special introductory price of $23 - don't forget that if you are not a member of our cellar club you can register for this (see the bottom of our Home page) and take advantage of the special prices that we offer.

We had the pleasure of showing Raymond Chan around our vineyards recently. Although Raymond is very familiar with our wines it was his first visit with us. He has added an article 'Domain Road - Bannockburn Class and Style' to his blog page and you can read it by following this link.
