An Evening with Chateau Maris

An Evening with Chateau Maris

Scott first met Robert and tried the Chateau Maris wines on his recent sojourn to France. Eden’s knowledge, adventurous nature, and the intense passion with which he produces his wines left a profound impression on him. We are thrilled that we can now share that experience with you.

Robert Eden, vintner and co-owner of Chateau Maris has lived in France since 1994 after travelling in Australia, Italy, Burgundy, Spain and California where he worked with renowned winemakers.

Since 1997, he has pursued organic and biodynamic viticulture at Chateau Maris. He is an industry vanguard and a biodynamic legend. Chateau Maris have even built the worlds very first carbon neutral winery made entirely of hemp!

Christmas Quaffers & Perfect Gifts

Christmas Quaffers & Perfect Gifts

Hunting for some Christmas quaffers, easy gifts, or a centrepiece magnum for the festive table? Look no further.

Winemaker Ben Portet stopped in recently with his gorgeous range of Dominique Portet wines from the Yarra Valley. A week later and we are still thinking about them!

Ben is a tenth generation winemaker. His father Dominique moved to Australia after a childhood spent in some of the world’s most respected wineries, including Chateau Lafite where his father was the vineyard and winery manager.

Vintages in the Medoc, Rhone Valley, Provence with Moet et Chandon and Clos da Val in the Napa Valley honed his skills before settling in Australia and establishing the Dominique Portet winery with his winemaker son Ben.

Despite his prestigious family lineage and success, Ben is a humble winemaker with a generous spirit.. preferring to let the wines and quality of fruit speak for themselves.

To order any of the below wines, simply email or call us on 07 3852 1891

 

2017 Dominique Portet Fontaine Rose MAGNUM – $60

The glass stopper and gift packaging make this an easy choice for Christmas gifts, or the perfect way to dress up the Christmas table or a long lunch over the summer. The blend is 60% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot.

Salmon coloured, pretty red fruits on the nose and a hint of pepper, with a creamy mouth feel and fine natural acidity.

 

2016 Dominique Portet Origine Chardonnay – $42

We were hesitant to taste it after the whirlwind success of the previous vintage (2016 winner of the VIC100), but it certainly did not disappoint. Ben commented that he thinks the 2016 is even better!

It’s complex and stylistically everything you could ask for, with layers of ginger spice woven through well-handled oak and driving minerality.

 

2017 Dominique Portet Fontaine Cabernet Sauvignon – $22

Gold Medal at 2017 Sydney Royal Wine Show.

Another big hit with our clients in last year’s release. This is a juicy, fresh, medium bodied cabernet with a very friendly price tag. The blend is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Malbec and a dash of Petit Verdot.

It’s a fantastic summer red, we might even go so far as to say it’s a Pinot lover’s Cab Sauv..
