Time Kirk - Winemaker Of The Year 2013

Small batch limited release

We are pleased to present to you our new collection of small batch limited release wines.

2012 Chardonnay
We took fruit from Steve Morrison’s high altitude ‘Revee Estate’ vineyard in Tumbarumba and tiny parcels of fruit (one barrel each) from Clonakilla and one other Murrumbateman vineyard. Whole bunch pressing, warm fermentation, lees stirring and 11 months aging in French oak were used to produce this vintage. “…intense, grapefruit-like varietal flavour and taut, acidic backbone…beautiful wine” – (Chris Shanahan – Canberra Times – 4 1/2 stars)

2012 Viognier
The Viognier is at its expressive best this year, low yields having worked to concentrate the flavours. Nectarine, apricot and ginger notes along with some complex barrel ferment characters on the nose. A balanced palate which achieves richness without heaviness.
