Riesling grapes in production

Larkeys Corner, Mintaro Creek Flagship range includes Award winning Riesling and Shiraz with our inaugural Cabernet Sauvignon release scheduled for mid 2012.

All these wines are from Single vineyard plantings at Mintaro in the picturesque Clare Valley … all vines were dry grown encouraging deep root growth and vine strength, designed to enhance the true natural flavours of the varietals influenced by well drained the red loam / clay soils , abundance of hot summer days and coolish evenings. Riesling now has the luxury of access to water if needed but is carefully monitored to restrict over use.

Much love and attention is focussed on the vineyard with pruning , and soil conditioning with hands on management … a great wine truly has its beginnings in the vineyard.  Pruning to restrict yield builds intensity and complexity of our wines for quality assurance  . Cover cropping , deep ripping and weed control ensures the soil quality is at its best for vine health and bunch growth.

The Larkeys Corner Shiraz spends 15 -16 months developing in French Oak barrels for added complexity. Whilst Larkeys corner and Mintaro Creek flagship wines uses a percentage of the premium “free run” juice for its production, the balance with pressings make up our AJ’s ranges .

 

Our Vineyard spreads over 4.4 Ha with over 6000 vines!

  • 2.02 Ha - Riesling 
  • 2.02 Ha - Shiraz 
  • 0.4 Ha - Cabernet

The balances of what we do not require for our premium wines are combined with our pressings and fermented in Stainless steel tanks with addition of Oak staves in our Shiraz to allow subtle oak influence.

Other varietals and hand selected parcels of quality fruit are purchase direct from small private growers and processed by us for market specific requirements.

Again, a key focus is on how the vineyard is managed and work … remembering all great wines are made in the vineyard with quality control and careful vineyard management .
