McLaren Vale

Wine Maker: Walter Clappis

Walter has been making wine for over 30 years and is widely considered one of Australia’s most outstanding winemakers. He is the only winemaker to have won the coveted Dan Murphy Trophy three times.

During the 20 years that Walter owned Ingoldby Winery, he amassed a total of 37 trophies and 130 gold medals. Another of Walter’s accolades was to be crowned King of the McLaren Vale Wine Bushing Festival for producing the most outstanding wine in McLaren Vale.

In 2011 Walter was the recipient of the George Mackey Memorial Trophy for producing the best wine exported from Australia. The 2009 Hedonist Shiraz beat all comers from a total of 14,000 wines exported in 2010.

For our 2010 Exemplar McLaren Vale Shiraz, Walter selected the fruit from his own vineyard. This vineyard follows biodynamic principles, eliminating the use of pesticides and herbicides. The vineyard yielded approximately one and a half tons to the acre. The wine spent two years in American Oak barrels before being bottled, labelled and packaged. This produced 650 dozen bottles

 

Heathcote

Wine Maker: John Ellis

Wine writers refer to John as the 'Godfather of Heathcote Shiraz.' John owns Hanging Rock Winery near Mount Macedon in Victoria.

John graduated Dux of his year in Oenology at Roseworthy College in 1971 and began his winemaking career with Krondorf and Yalumba wineries. In 1974 John became the foundation winemaker at the newly established Rosemount Estate, where the following year Rosemount won 2 trophies and 17 gold medals.

John is a board member of the Winemakers Federation of Australia. He is Chairman of the Royal Hobart Wine Show and Show Judge at both the Rutherglen and Perth Wine Shows.

John selected the fruit for our 2010 Exemplar Shiraz from the smallest vineyard in Heathcote. The vineyard yielded a little over one ton to the acre. The wine spent two years in American Oak barrels before being bottled, labelled and packaged which produced 650 dozen bottles.

Restaurants

Fine dining restaurants employ sommeliers, who decide which wines go onto their wine lists. These people are highly trained and experienced. There are numerous sommeliers on judging panels at wine shows around the country.

Getting your wine into a fine dining restaurant is a daunting task. It can be uncomfortable to sit in front of a sommelier, who is tasting your wine and is about to give you an opinion as to whether or not your wine will go on their wine list.

Today’s sommeliers are making up a significant proportion of wine show judges. Many have completed the Len Evans Tutorial and more and more are becoming qualified as internationally recognised Masters of Wine. 

We are fortunate to have our wine in a number of fine dining restaurants. Sommeliers have the choice of stocking the best of the best. It is a great feeling when they choose to stock Exemplar Shiraz.

If all are as good as the first wine released, there is much to look forward to.
— James Halliday

Rated five stars by James Halliday in Wine Companion 2013 edition. 

This virtual winery was established by Peter Mornement. His philosophy (and business plan) was simple: to develop a portfolio of high quality, high value shiraz from six premium shiraz-producing regions. Each wine would be made by a winemaker in that region with an established reputation, and a simple instruction from Peter: buy the best fruit you can, and use the new oak of your choice. The quantity of each wine made will be 650 dozen bottles. He has joined forces with John Ellis (of Hanging Rock) for Heathcote; Walter Clappis and Kym Teusner (of their eponymous wineries) for McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley respectively. The wines are sold in a six-bottle case, the initial releases from Heathcote and McLaren Vale, only to subscribers. If all are as good as the first wine released, there is much to look forward to. 

Exemplar McLaren Vale Shiraz 2010

Deep, dense purple-crimson; the blackberry, black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate quadrella is as deep and intense as you might imagine; the palate is either velvety or thick, depending on one’s viewpoint. The product of a great vintage that will live for decades. Screwcap.
14% alc. Rating 95 To 2035 $100

Exemplar Heathcote Shiraz 2010

Full, deep purple-crimson; combines power and intensity with elegance and balance; the fragrant bouquet is the opening chorus for the symphony of spice, licorice, black cherry and blackberry of the palate, where quality oak and ripe but firm tannins the final act. Screwcap.
14% alc. Rating 96 To 2035 $100
