Winemaker’s Craft Collection
Winemaker’s Craft collection was created with the sole purpose to be innovative and creative. Fuelled by an unwavering curiosity, to pioneer new ways of creating the extraordinary.
The philosophy behind the Winemaker’s Craft, is as a team, to be creative, have fun and apply our many years of experience, skills and knowledge in new ways to our winemaking approach, to produce top quality wines that spark interest and conversation.
One Variety, One Vintage, One Barrel
Our Winemaker’s Craft Shiraz ‘Collectors Trio Edition’ was crafted with minimal intervention, allowing the distinct terroir of three regional Shiraz parcels to be expressed.
Each wine was crafted from the 2018 vintage and matured in a single French Oak Puncheon. The final result showcases the natural and unique characteristics of each parcel of premium fruit from each unique vineyard and its individual barrel. Very limited production of just 595 bottles was made of each wine.
In pursuit of emerging varietals
Our Winemaker’s Craft ‘Single Suitcase’ Montepulciano is a new release and varietal to Saddler’s Creek Wines, nicknamed Monte in Australia, is commonly grown in Abruzzo, Italy, where the Laureti family immigrated from. As one of Australia top emerging varietals, it is loved for its drinkability and a must to enjoy with family and friends.
A particular pest sensitivity
The little early one might ripen sooner than its fellow varietals, but it’s not particularly amenable or hardy when it comes to vineyard bothers. The prolific tempranillo, in all its black-graped glory, has a low tolerance for any sort of inclement weather or pests that might bedevil the fruit while it’s growing.
That being said, if the weather and the pests play ball, tempranillo flourishes in both cooler high-altitude areas and warmer climates.
A real-leaf beauty
If you didn’t major in oenology, chances are you wouldn’t even be able to take an educated swing at identifying a particular varietal on the vine. But Tempranillo’s so distinctive that even a complete neophyte could give the game a good crack.
What should you look for? Seriously serrated leaves (it’s kind of the vino version of a maple leaf) — and, in autumn, a distinctive crimson hue that’s unique in the wine world. Glorious!
