Winemaker Daniel Wilson uses small batch techniques to produce a limited quantity of Polish Hill River and Watervale rieslings as well as powerfully structured red varietals.
Polish Hill River
From our oldest riesling vineyard comes this special wine.
Handpicked from very low yielding vines in heavy clay soils the flavours are powerful, clean and inviting.
Made in limited quantity to exacting standards, the Polish Hill River riesling has an exceptional track record and sits comfortably within the top tier of Australian riesling.
Planted in 1997 on a small block opposite cellar door, the DJW block slopes to the South providing shade from the harsh summer sun.
The soil contains more sand and less clay than our other Polish Hill River vineyards which translates into more vigorous vines, larger berries and more fruit shading.
The characteristics of this block are typically more generous, sometimes slightly tropical, but always fresh with green fruit and flavours with tremendous length.
Sourced from a single vineyard just south of Watervale.
Powerful and alluring, the lifted grassy aromatics are typical of the best wines from this well known sub-region.
The palate is crisp and refreshing with layers of lime and kiwi fruit.
History has proven that Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in the Clare Valley. Around 8 acres of The Wilson Vineyard is planted to this magnificent variety.
Wilson Cabernet Sauvignon has a power of tannin to go with the varietal flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant.
Matured in a high proportion (>50%) of quality new French Oak, Wilson Cabernet Sauvignon is built unashamadly for aging and demonstrates the enthusiasm our winemaker has for Bordeaux.
A blend of Shiraz vineyards from Polish Hill River.
The Pepperstone is a medium-full bodied wine that displays the earthy, plums and distinct ribena flavours of our terroir.
Aged in a mix of American and French oak the Pepperstone has a complexity not typically found in this price range.
The Handplunge is our pursuit of excellence in red winemaking.
Made from estate fruit grown at Polish Hill River, and only in outstanding vintages, the Handplunge must be rich, full bodied and powerful by design.
Following fermentation the Handplunge parcels are blended and matured in 100% new immersion bent American oak barriques.
When produced, quantities are typically around 100 dozen.
Planted on the heavy clay of Polish Hill River we have a tiny 1 acre patch of Tempranillo, fast becoming the must have alternative variety in Australia.
Concentrated colour and concentration give immediate appeal with succulent flavours of plums and cloves over a cola base.
Made only in the best years, Wilson Merlot is a cut above the rest.
Powerful and concentrated the merlot shows ripe berry flavours and aromas.
Being only a very small part of our vineyard Wilson Merlot is very limited in production and is only available through cellar door and website.
