2016 Gartelmann Phillip Alexander
Mudgee Region

2016 Gartelmann Phillip Alexander

NAME: This wine has been named after Jorg Gartelmann’s son Phillip.

VINEYARDS:The cool climate vineyard in Rylstone on pebbly alkaline clay-loam over limestone produces a very good Merlot, helped by an alkaline pH of 7.5, similar to the Rhone Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from Mudgee. At 480m altitude, it has the benefits of the warm ripening weather but escapes the intensive heat which can be destructive to fruit. The vineyard block is slightly acidic in the top soil 0-20 cm, then gradually increasing in pH to 7.5 to 8.0 at 1.0 m depth. The soils are high in calcium, alkali in nature.

TASTING NOTES: Matured for 14months in a mix of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads and puncheons. This is a complex wine of rich, bold black fruits layered with dense inviting oak, with great length of palate and beautiful balance. Deep purple in colour with a nose of liquorice and dried spice with a tomato bush layer. The palate has strong dusty tannins with a rich full flavour of blackcurrants and ripe plums.

FOOD MATCHING: Slow braised beef ribs, venison, kangaroo and mature cheeses.

CELLARING: Drink from 2019, better from 2021, or cellar until 2026+.

The 'new normal' for tasting wine in the Hunter Valley

I have a confession to make. Every time I drive past a cellar or restaurant in the Hunter nowadays, I do a little fist pump. As a local, it’s just so good to see people coming back to the Valley and businesses getting back on their feet. And, while you can still expect a great wine tasting or dining experience, there are a few changes to the way we used to do things here that you should be aware of. To get the run down, I caught up with Christina Tulloch, President of the Hunter Valley Wine & Tourism Association (HVWTA), to discuss the ‘new normal’ for the Hunter Valley and in particular, cellar door etiquette.  Continue »
