Trophy Bling…September 20, 2017
Currently in it’s 29th year the Hunter Valley Boutique Winemakers Show is firmly established as one of Australia’s benchmark, regional wine shows for small producers. With both Hunter Valley wines and this show having such significant reputations we are always excited to enter our wines and have them judged by our peers. It’s great to have unbiased feedback on our wines.
The results of this show were announced last week and we are thrilled to tell you, after an intensive week of judging, lead by Chief Judge, Keith Tulloch, Stomp received the following trophy and medals:
Trophy & Gold Medal
stomp! 2017 Verdelho
Pssst ‘n’ Broke 2016 Verdelho
stomp! 2016 Fiano
Having a favourite wine is a little like having a favourite child… but, I must admit stomp! Verdelho has always been one of my favourites. It’s always a winner in my books!
Ready, set… grab your Moscato!September 14, 2017
With great excitement we finally announce the release of our Moscato.
Joining our stomp! range it retails at $25/bottle or $21 to members.
Made from Muscat grapes this playful Moscato will easily make friends in all circles. With its gentle cascade of bubbles, it’s fun, festive and full of sweet flavour – Turkish delight, musk sticks and fairy floss.
This gorgeous pink bubbly is versatility itself – standing capably as an aperitif at your next dinner party, cheekily starting your party, making your brunch unforgettable or complimenting your favorite sneaky confections.
Intended to be consumed young, fresh and vibrant our Moscato needs to be served well chilled. It’s so easy going it doesn’t need food. Just grab your partner by the hand, shake off your shoes, walk through the fresh, soft grass whilst the sun gently caresses your skin, sit and sip. Springtime perfection right there! But it’s also downright delicious when paired with apple desserts, fresh berries, meringues and cakes. Or try it with spicy Asian fare, cheese, antipasto or charcuterie.
Spring in a bottle!September 6, 2017
Nothing says spring better than a fresh, zesty, ice-cold (go on break the rules), white wine. So how excited are we to introduce two new release wines – stomp! Limited release 2017 Sauvignon Blanc and stomp! 2017 Verdelho. Both here just in time for our glorious Spring weather.
Our Sauvignon Blanc is a limited release with only 200 cases made. This fine example of cool climate, high altitude fruit from Orange has produced a wine with enticing aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, guava and hints of grapefruit. The palate is tasty, lively, long and dry. It compliments soft cheeses, seafood, Greek or Mexican cuisine. Best consumed now or with short term cellaring.
Our 2017 Verdelho has aromas of honeydew melon and passionfruit, with a refreshing, zesty palate displaying ripe tropical fruits and citrus characters. It is very enjoyable on its own, but shines when paired with Asian inspired flavours.
So who’s ready for Spring? Have we got your mouth watering, sunglasses on and a day basking in the sunshine planned?
NB: Our Sauvignon Blanc is still to go onto the website. In the meantime email me for orders. It’s that easy!
