North    Barossa    Vintners     is    a    collaboration    of    Adrian    Hoffmann    and    Chris    Ringland.    Our    grapes    are sourced   from   old   vines,   situated   at   Ebenezer,   in   the   Northern   Barossa   Valley.   Adrian,   5th   generation Hoffmann   family   vigneron,   selects   individual   parcels   from   his   Shiraz   vineyards   over   the   growing   season. The   grapes   are   gently   destemmed,   then   vinified   in   small   individual   batches.   The   wine   is   then   aged   in   new French   oak   for   a   number   of   years.   The   very   best   barrels   are   finally   selected   for   the   Chris   Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard and Dimchurch labels. 2008 Chris Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard Barossa Shiraz Comments on the 2008 vintage: The   drier   winter   of   2007   was   helped   by   above   average   autumn   rainfall.   Spring   rains   continued   up   until January,   when   the   season   became   quite   dry   and   hot.   The   heat   events   in   January,   February   and   early March   brought   forward   picking   times,   leading   to   a   vintage   of   very   concentrated   wines.   Adrian   harvested the   various   parcels   for   Hoffmann   Vineyard   Shiraz   between   the   7th   and   19th   of   March.   The   wines   were matured   in   new   French   Oak   for   an   astonishing   62   Months,   prior   to   bottling   in   June,   2013.   180   cases   were produced. Tasting Notes: Appearance:  Opaque red-black. Crimson rim Aroma:    Carbon   and   oak   sawdust   give   way   to   spicy   notes   of   aniseed,   liquorice   and   molasses.   Only   then   do the black Shiraz fruit aromas emerge. Palate:   Sweet,   nutty   black   chocolate.   Creamy   vanilla.   A   massive,   intense,   rich   fruit   panorama   carries through the palate. The theme is concluded with powerful, soft tannins and subtle acid. Cellaring: The   concentration   of   the   2008   vintage   delivered   a   wine   with   extraordinary   power   and   concentration, contrasted   with   an   unexpected   perfume   and   delicacy. This   wine   will   easily   attain   maturity   over   the   next   15 to   20   years   aging   gracefully   into   the   future.   In   the   mean   time,   at   least   a   few   hours   in   the   decanter   can   be considered mandatory to maximise the full potential.

North    Barossa    Vintners    is    a    collaboration    of    Adrian    Hoffmann    and    Chris    Ringland.    Our    grapes    are sourced   from   old   vines,   situated   at   Ebenezer,   in   the   Northern   Barossa   Valley.   Adrian,   5th   generation Hoffmann   family   vigneron,   selects   individual   parcels   from   his   Shiraz   vineyards   over   the   growing   season. The   grapes   are   gently   destemmed,   then   vinified   in   small   individual   batches.   The   wine   is   then   aged   in   new French   oak   for   a   number   of   years.   The   very   best   barrels   are   finally   selected   for   the   Chris   Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard and Dimchurch labels. 2010 Chris Ringland Dimchurch Barossa Shiraz Comments on the 2010 vintage: The   Winter   of2009   and   the   build   up   to   the   2010   vintage   was   drier   than   normal.   Late   Spring   rains   rescued the   situation   somewhat,   enabling   good   canopy   development   with   Shiraz,   but   cool   conditions   extended   the flowering   period.   Yields   were   slightly   below   average.   The   Summer   and   Autumn   of   2010   was   even   and mild.   Ebenezer   Shiraz   attained   full   ripeness   relatively   early,   with   solid,   ripe   tannins   and   excellent   acid retention   at   modest   sugar   levels.   Adrian   began   harvesting   the   fruit   on   March   9th   with   the   last   parcel   being delivered   April   10th.   Barrel   selections   of   Hoffmann   vineyard   Shiraz   for   the   Chris   Ringland   Dimchurch   label comprised   100%   new   French   oak.   The   wines   were   matured   for   56   Months   before   blending   and   bottling   in December 2014. 250 dozen were produced. Tasting notes: Appearance:   Deep red - black. Scarlet rim Aroma:   Initial impressions of roasting coffee, blackberry jam, a hint of woodsmoke and hot asphalt. Palate:    Mineral-graphite   and   carbon   dust   flavours   evolve   into   black   fruits,   underpinned   by   cedar-vanillin base   notes.   This   formidable   structure   is   full   bodied,   yet   kept   in   balance   with   gentle   acidity   and   rounded tannins on the long finish. Cellaring: Ripe,   rich   2010   Barossa   Shiraz   is   wine   for   the   long   haul.   Big,   soft   tannins   and   firm,   natural   acidity   will   see to   that.   It   may   take   25   years   to   30   years   for   the   wines   to   reach   full   maturity.   In   the   short   term,   Dimchurch 2010 Barossa Shiraz will greatly benefit from a few hours in the decanter after opening.

{Shiraz 2010}

Comments on the 2009 vintage Overall,   Shiraz   yields   for   the   Barossa   were   lower   in   2009,   compared   with   the   year   before.   Dry   conditions   in the   Spring   of   2008   resulted   in   smaller   berries   and   loose   clusters.   Fortunately,   a   period   of   extreme   Summer heat   in   January   2009   was   early   enough   to   have   a   minimal   impact   on   fruit   development,   especially   in   the high   elevation   vineyards   of   the   Barossa   Ranges.   Subsequent   vintage   conditions   were   very   favourable.   The wines   have   excellent   tannin   structure,   together   with   gentle   natural   acidity.   Perhaps   a   little   more   traditional than   the   lavish,   opulent   2008's.   The   Stone   Chimney   Creek   Shiraz   vineyard   was   harvested   on   Thursday, April   23,   and   the   ferment   was   pressed   off   skins   and   drained   to   one   new   French   oak   Demimuid,   and   4 hogsheads   on   May   1.   The   malolactic   fermentation   was   very   slow,   so   the   wines   did   not   receive   their second   racking   until   October   10   the   following   year. The   wine   was   ready   for   bottling   on   Friday,   February   22, 2013 after a rest in barrel of 46 Months. 2009 Chris Ringland Barossa Ranges Shiraz Tasting note Appearance:  Opaque red-black with a crimson-brick red rim. Aroma:   The   first   impression   from   a   freshly   decanted   bottle   is   of   sweet   Dutch   liquorice,   together   with   a   top note   of   citrus   vanillin   from   the   French   oak.   The   aroma   then   opens   up   to   reveal   dark   chocolate   and   an amalgam of fresh red berries. Palate:    The   overall   impact   is   fat   and   very   rich   in   structure.   Oak   vanillin   still   lurks   beneath   the   hallmark vineyard signature ofliquorice, aniseed and a hint of black pepper. Cellaring: The   palate   is   characteristically   long   and   very   complex,   as   you   would   expect   from   such   ripe   grapes, matured   in   wood   for   4   years   and   in   bottle,   upon   release,   for   3   years.   This   vintage   is   still   very   young.   Don't even   think   about   drinking   this   for   another   10   years.   Lf   you   simply   have   to,   then   at   least   2   days   in   decanter will   be   mandatory.   Matured   in   new   french   oak   for   46   months.   1780   bottles,   140   magnums,   18   double magnums and three imperials were filled. The alcohol level measured at bottling was 16.0%.
