The Key to the Colors

Various colors have been used to distinguish wine qualities at Schloss Johannisberg since the days of Fürst von Metternich. Then (1820), with “Siegellack” (wax seals); today, with colored capsules:

Gelblack (yellow seal): QbA
Rotlack (red seal): Kabinett
Grünlack (green seal): Spätlese
Silberlack (silver seal): 1.Gewächs (first growth)
Rosalack (pink seal): Auslese
Rosa-Goldlack (pink-gold seal): Beerenauslese
Goldlack (gold seal): Trockenbeerenauslese
Blaulack (blue seal): Eiswein


Lagenbeschreibung:
Die Lage Schloß Johannisberger ist im Monopolbesitz der Weinbau-Domäne Schloß Johannisberg. Der 50. Breitengrad verläuft direkt durch den vorgelagerten Taunusquarzitfelsen, oberhalb des Rheinlaufs zwischen Oestrich-Winkel und Geisenheim gelegen. Von Norden her wird der Weinberg durch die bewaldeten Taunushöhen gegen kalte Winde geschützt, im Süden liegt der Rhein seenartig am Fuße des Berges. In absoluter Südausrichtung, mit einer Hangneigung von bis zu 45 %, ist die Einzellage auf 114 m bis 182 m ansteigend über NN gelegen. Im östlichen Berg strahlt die Morgensonne ein, während im zentralen und südwestlichen Bereich unserer Rebfläche die intensivste Sonneneinstrahlung messbar ist. Mit rund 1.700 Sonnenstunden im Jahresmittel, weist der Schloss Johannisberger die höchste Energiezufuhr im Rheingau auf. Bereits im Jahre 1143 wurde der Weinberg als „monte sancti Johannis“ in alten Aufzeichnungen erwähnt, nachdem die benediktinische Abtei auf der Anhöhe zu Ehren Johannes dem Täufer geweiht wurde.
Seit 1720 wird hier ausschließlich Riesling angebaut und somit gilt der Johannisberger als weltweit erster geschlossener Weinberg, der mit dieser edlen Rebsorte bestockt ist. Schon im Jahre 1870 wurden die Weine in England bereits mit dem Aufdruck „first growth“ verkauft.

Boden:
Die Bodenformation aus reinem Taunusquarzit mit Auflagen von mittel- bis tiefgründigen Löss-Lehmen speichert Wärme und Wasser in besonders hohem Maße.

Art Russe Saint-Emilion Grand Cru produced at Château La Grâce Dieu des Prieurs - the estate of 8.5 ha on a terrific terroir. Winemaker: Louis Mitjavile. Architect: Jean Nouvel.
Each vintage there are 12 different labels with paintings by Russian artists of XIX-XX centuries due to the agreement with ART RUSSE Foundation (based in the UK) which granted the Chateau the right to use all the images from its collection. The shape of the bottle is reminiscent to amphora-like ancient Bordeaux bottles. Award-winning gift packaging. Tremendous visibility and storytelling.

In the year 1806, a convict woman named Charlotte Badger was transported to Van Diemen’s Land aboard the Venus. During this voyage Charlotte staged a mutiny, seizing the ship and sailing off to New Zealand.

In this quiet mutiny, she was a pirate, an adventurer, a woman treading her own path. Charlotte Badger's bold actions inspired our own embarquement of Quiet Mutiny in this fabled land.

Domaine du Pré Semelé lies in a tiny valley a few miles northwest of the hilltop town of Sancerre. The estate is managed by the third generation of the family Raimbault, brothers Julien and Clément, vigneron and winemaker, respectively. They are guided by their father Rémy, who has worked their vineyards for decades with his brother Claude. This is another wonderful example of the younger generation taking over the reigns of a family estate and elevating it to a new higher level.

Revision 4; edited by LindsayM on 6/12/2018



Gould Campbell was founded in 1797 by Garret Gould who sailed to the shores of Portugal in order to avoid the political issues facing Ireland. The firm survived the Peninsula War which followed a few years later and soon became very successful bringing into partnership the prestigious Merchants and Bankers James Campbell & Co.

In 1970 the firm was acquired by the Symington family, already established Port producers since 1882. Gould Campbell is the least-known of the six brands in the Symington's portfolio, the innovative, family-owned shippers that have done so much for Port over the years. It is one of the very few Port shippers which remain a private family business, therefore retaining its individuality and distinctiveness.

Gould Campbell has come to establish a reputation for excellent quality of their Ports and their Vintage Ports in particular. Once described as the "Saab of Vintage Ports", a comparison to the good-value and totally reliable, with a touch of slightly quirky flair, Swedish motor-cars.

The vineyards used for Gould Campbell are based in the Alto Douro area where yields tend to be very low but the grapes produce Ports of immense complexity and depth. The winery is situated in Pinhão where modern temperature controlled fermentation tanks are used. However a significant proportion of Gould Campbell Ports are still made using the traditional methods of treading the grapes by foot in stone tanks called lagares in small quintas around the hills in Pinhão. Gould Campbells Ports are rich in style and very full-bodied. For their ageing potential they really are well worth consideration.

Apsley Gorge Vineyard and Bicheno Winery are located at Tasmania's gorgeous East Coast township of Bicheno. Drive through the town and head for "The Gulch", and when you are overlooking the sea, look out for a drive to the left.

Apsley Gorge Vineyard's cellar door is a humble shed - no pretenses. Sit at one of a few simple tables, experience glorious views of the iconic Freycinet granite mountains, taste winemaker Brian Franklin's stunning wines and sample an an array of perfectly cooked seafood - second to none.

Apsley Gorge Vineyard offers the discerning gourmet traveller - one prepared to leave the beaten track - the finest of chardonnays, and a deeply satisfying pinot noir in the Burgundian style with a focus on seafood. Wine tasting should be accompanied by the fresh plump local oysters, and some of the best, freshest cooked crayfish you will ever sample.


Established in 1988 this tiny vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir (5.5ha) and Chardonnay (1ha) and is located several kilometres inland from the coast near the entrance to the Apsley Gorge national Park north-west of Bicheno. The vineyards unique situation near the entry to the gorge brings breezes in the afternoon which have a distinct cooling effect which means this vineyard is typically one of the last to harvest in Tasmania with harvest usually being around the first week of May. This micro-climate is unique for the east coast.

Since 1999 winemaking has been undertaken by owner Brian Franklin who also does vintage each year in Burgundy with Philippe Charlopin (himself mentored by his friend Henri Jayer) in Gevrey Chambertin, and is helped here in Tasmania by young French winemakers including Philippe Charlopin’s son Yann. Including vintages undertaken in France Brian now has almost 40 vintages of winemaking experience in both France and Australia.

Always aiming for full phenolic ripeness the style of wines produced are rich and intense wines characterised by fully ripe fruit made using Burgundian know-how with texture and finesse and excellent natural acidity, without excessive extraction or heaviness. Produced very naturally with only a small percentage of new oak each year these are very individual wines of great class and structure that drink very well when young yet also age and evolve over a decade or more for the Pinot Noir.

Producer: Jamiesons Run

The wheel has turned full circle for Jamiesons Run. It started out as a single-label, mid-market, high-volume brand developed by Ray King during his time as CEO of Mildara. It grew and grew until Mildara, having many years since been merged with Wolf Blass, decided to rename the Mildara Coonawarra winery Jamiesons Run, with the Mildara label just one of a number falling under the Jamiesons Run umbrella. Now the Jamiesons Run winery is no more - Foster's (now Treasure Wine Estates) sold it, but retained the brand.

OVERVIEW
Mildara was originally a producer best known for its fortified wines, and managing director Ron Haselgrove decided to purchase some land in Coonawarra in 1963 for the production of table wines. Mildara went on to great success, producing one of Australia's most iconic and influential wines ever, the 1963 vintage Mildara cabernet nick-named 'Peppermint Patty', as well as Jimmy Watson trophies for the 1981 and 1988 vintages. Subsequent corporate merges and takeovers saw the Mildara Coonawarra winery, known as 'Jamieson's Run', become the label for the entire production of the winery, and the Mildara brand was for some time known as Jamieson's Run Mildara. One thing has remained constant - the vines are capable of producing exceptional fruit.

In the early '70s Michel and Louis Bronzo (the latter on the board of the INAO) acquired the property of the Bastide Blanche, with an eye to producing from appellation Bandol wines the equal of more famous appellations like Chateauneuf. Their painstaking efforts were rewarded in 1993 when vintage conditions created the benchmark year to put Bandol in general and Bastide-Blanche, in particular, on the map of top producers in France. They have various cuvees, depending on the vintage, but always about 75% Mourvedre as a minimum, up to 100% Mourvedre for the Cuvee Fontanieu from a parcel of that name near the Mediterranean. Also, common each year to their success are their very low yields, never more than 34 or 35 hl/ha, and simply impeccable cellar conditions and attention. This shows in the pure, well-delineated fruit, that has become a hallmark of Bastide-Blanche. They also make a delightful Rose, from predominantly Mourvedre, with Grenache and Cinsault.
