February 2012 Newsletter

Hello friends and members,

This is the first newsletter from Tim Smith Wines.

 

We’ve got plenty of exciting news to share and, of course, the 2012 harvest is just around the corner…

NEW WINERY – BLING BLING

Yes, it is true…we are finally making our wines at our own winery in Nuriootpa. Fondly named ‘Home of the Brave’, our new winery is shared with the dynamic First Drop team. The 2012 vintage will be our first at this fab new facility and it feels a big shift from the old shed where, together, we have created our last 7 vintages !

TWO AWESOME REVIEWS

Our first Eden Valley Riesling has been received incredibly well with both trade and private customers. James Halliday gave it a respectable 96 points; a great kick start for a first release.

The 2009 Barossa Shiraz was also awarded 96 points by the great man…sadly it’s sold out. Get in quick to get a few of the 2010 vintage tucked away in your cellar.

LIMITED OFFER

We have extremely limited quantity of the ‘Home of the Brave’ Non-Vintage Sparkling Trincadeira.

We leapt at the opportunity to create this dry-style sparkling red from a very rare Portuguese grape variety planted in the Barossa about 50 years ago. $270 per six-pack, orders to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

2012 VINTAGE UPDATE

Currently it’s shaping up to be a blinder, but we’re a little cautious of making grandiose claims as there’s still a lot Mother Nature can throw at us! To date, we’ve had excellent pre-Christmas rain, decent warm temperatures

throughout January and (fingers crossed) this continues leading up to harvest. Watch this space…
