Vinteloper is David Bowley’s genre-defying project to bring together the very best Adelaide Hills micro-sites. While always playful in presentation, the wines are some of the most serious, classically-styled and beautifully structured to come out of South Australia. This mixed dozen showcases Touriga, a gorgeous Portuguese grape, and the more classic and multi-award-winning Shiraz.
Touriga Nacional 2017:
18.0+/20 – Raymond Chan
Tasting Note: Single vineyard wine. So smooth you immediately understand why Touriga is Portugal’s top-dog red grape. Like sucking on a soft salted caramel as you soak up the warm summer sunshine. It’s the low and slow cooked brisket of red wine. It leads with ripe plum over the signature lavender, violet, clove and five spice aromatics of Touriga Nacional. On the palate it’s blue and red fruits wrapped in the uniquely rounded tannin profile coming to the fore. The depth and flavour of a much bigger wine, it slides down the throat with alarming ease. 11 months in French oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered.
95/100 – Winestate Magazine
92/100 – Toni Paterson, MW, The Real Review
Gold Medal – Adelaide Hills Wine Show
Tasting Note: Our 8th vintage of Shiraz, and one of our best. It’s got the whole package, like fine wine should. Playful enough to work on Wednesday yet serious enough to work on Saturday. It bounces out of the glass in a fragrant multi-layered bouquet of juicy fruit, pepper and chocolate with a hint of dried apricot. The acid keeps the palate in check, with a fine balance of concentration & cool climate intensity. It’s pure and poised, integrating medium bodied feel yet full bodied drive and length.
