The Art of Cabernet
The magic of our wonderful Churchview Cabernet Sauvignon is a constant process. Over the last 2 weeks, our vineyard team have been hand removing individual leaves from the more vigorous vines. This increases the sunlight into the canopy and encourages the flavour and physiological ripeness of the berry. This picture almost captures how many leaves they remove - you can see through the canopy!
If you can see in nice and close - the bunches appear much smaller this year than the great 2012 vintage - this generally means intense flavours.
Bring on the middle of March I say - I love picking Cabernet.
The lead up to vintage is an amazing time. The viticulturalist is preparing the vines, and the winery takes some time to fine tune the layout. Recently we had this huge crane in Winery 3 - moving those huge tanks around. This picture shows how tight the fit was - he had only 10cm on either side, and did not hit a thing.
Winery 3 is the long term storage / maturaton area for our reds - Silverleaf and some components of the Estate Range.
Salmon Fishing Broome
Our General Manager Ray has spent some well deserved R & R in Broome with his family. In his true hunter and collecter style - he provided this beauty for the family.
Would have gone really well with our Gold medal winning 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon.
Lesmurdie Cricket Club Thankyou
Dear Churchview Estate,
Thanks for your efforts in relation to our fundraising for Lesmurdie Mazenod Cricket Club.
We have raised about $1,500 which will help the club with our facilities and the cost of equipment.
Many of us at the club enjoy a good drop and the positive feedback about the quality of the wine from Churchview
has made this fundraising effort a great success.
