DATELINE THURSDAY 4TH NOVEMBER, 2010.
Today at the China region’s largest fine wine trade fair, the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Expo, premium Australian winery Calais Estate Wines released its long-awaited 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, amongst other excellent examples of the winery’s products.
Calais Estate Wines, situated in the noted Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, Australia, won the bronze medal for the new 2005 Cabernet-Sauvignon at 2010’s respected Maitland Small Winemakers’ Show, a competition reserved for boutique wineries with a crush of less than 500 tonnes per vintage. Due to the exceptionally good conditions of the Hunter Valley’s 2005 vintage, the wine is expected to quickly achieve collector status, and has already attracted unprecedented interest from mainland China buyers.
Also winning the bronze medal at the Maitland show was the Reserve 2006 Chambourcin, a fantastic wine made for cellaring or enjoying now.
At the Hong Kong Expo, Calais Estate Wines is also proudly showing four of its most popular sparkling wines, all of which have achieved excellent sales volumes in the winery’s home market of Australia. Of particular interest to buyers in the China-region is the Crackling Rose NV, the first batch of which sold out in record time, and is being shown in its brand-new 2nd batch bottling, as well as the Sparkling Shiraz, which is a wonderful wine for celebrations. Filling out the range is the Sparkling Chambourcin, which is a dryer wine with beautiful rich red colour, and the 9 year old Methode Champenoise which is a deep and full-bodied Chardonnay-based wine.
Calais Estate Wines also announced to the trade that the winery has now started producing its Methode Champenoise entirely on site. Bottling of a beautiful new chardonnay was completed only last week. The wine is now maturing in cellars to create a signature sparkling Calais Estate wine for future enjoyment.
