WINMARK OWNER INTERVIEW

Chardonnay is known as the winemaker's grape due to its ability to flourish in any climate and be made in a variety of styles. In Australia, chardonnay once had a reputation for wines that were big, buttery, and oaky, but modern examples are much more restrained. Yering Station's Brendan Hawker, Winmark Wines' Karin Adcock and John Belsham, Flowstone's Stuart Pym and Cullen Wines' Vanya Cullen tell us how they make this great grape their own.

PAXTON’S CELEBRITY APPROVAL

Celebrity-endorsed wine (or any wine, for that matter) is only as good as the land on which it was grown, the fruit with which it was crafted, and the team that guides it through the winemaking process. The Killers' drummer, avid wine lover and former Sonoma vineyard owner Ronnie Vannucci jnr is well aware of this. That's why the American Rockstar’s shiraz chose to collaborate with the team at Paxton Wines in South Australia. The decision to make a McLaren Vale shiraz happened over a glass of wine (or several) among mates.

WINMARK 5 STAR REVIEW

Karin Adcock is a Danish-born and educated entrepreneur with the gift of making the difficult seem easy. Scandinavian design of things large or small, utilitarian or simply decorative gave her a head start in Australia. In '16 she purchased what was then Poole's Rock, assembling teams of experts to rejuvenate the 11ha vineyard and embark on a long-term program for the whole property. The property has expanded since and is complemented by artworks, antiques and artefacts, notably sculptures, collected by Adcock from around the world.
