OUR JOURNEY THROUGH

GREAT SOUTHERN WINE REGION

November 7, 2017

4 award-winning estates from the Great Southern wine region came together in Singapore from 29 October to 31 October to host 3 days of events. 

A light evening breeze was beginning to blow when we started our set of events aboard Stewords Riverboat. The wine stations were set up on the top deck of the boat and a sense of excitement was building. Galafrey, Rockcliffe, Poacher's Ridge and La Violetta are seasoned practitioners at wine-tasting events. But on a boat?

The returning speed boats, fetching Kusu Island pilgrims back to Singapore, stirred the waters, gently rocking the otherwise steady riverboat.

Linda Tyrer (Galafrey) was grinning widely,

"I was the only one still standing and drinking at the bar when we crossed the English channel ... we'll be alright".

We planted our feet firmly on the ground on day two, in a wine bistro at the heart of Duxton Hill, a quintessential watering hole in a historic neighbourhood. Twenty trade and media representatives attended...

An exclusive, intimate dining experience in the lofty night skies of downtown Singapore -  Dr Steve Hall, owner of Rockcliffe flew especially to Singapore to host a group of Wine Edens guests for a wonderful dinner at Salt Grill & Sky Bar. 

Rockcliffe is a 5 red star winery located in the Great Southern wine region. They produce exceptional cool climate, late-harvest wines and is one of the largest and most esteemed in the region.

On behalf of Steve, I would like to thank our wonderful guests! They are friendly, humble and highly inquisitive with regards to the Great Southern wine region. As you can imagine, group dynamics can often be volatile, regardless of the quality of the food and beverage. In this case, it is a phenomenal joy to host the group that has gathered for the Rockcliffe wine dinner.

In retrospect, wine dinners are an exceptional opportunity for us to meet wine lovers and enjoy an evening of laughs and conversations. I get to learn their tastes, their likes and d...

It has been an intensive 2017 with the start of Wine Edens. We've been busy setting up the foundations of the company and establishing relationships in the industry given that we're a newcomer. And half the year has gone by already!

Progress thus far has been encouraging and I have great news to share, but in another post. For now, I am pleased to announce an exciting wine dinner on Tuesday, 18th July 2017.  

In collaboration with Rockcliffe Winery and Salt Grill & Sky Bar, we will be presenting Rockcliffe's exceptional wines in a special 5 course dinner. Details of the dinner menu are in the flyer below.

This is something you really don't want to miss and here's 3 reasons why:

1. Dr Steve Hall will be personally presenting his wines to you and also share his experiences at the vineyard, including the outlook for the latest vintage. How often do you have a dinner experience where the winery owner himself share about the wines you are drinking?!

2. Rockcliffe is a 5 red star winery - the hig...

Wine Australia published a glowing review of the Great Southern in a recent article in April 2017. 

Whilst I am eager to share a few snippets here, you can read up the full article via this link: https://www.wineaustralia.com/whats-happening/stories-of-australian-wine/places/discovering-wa%E2%80%99s-great-great-southern

A number of points made caught my attention as they speak closely to what I felt when I decided to start Wine Edens.

"Its wines are applauded and adored by the wine experts – the very first wines from the region are still one of the most awarded Western Australian wines today"

"The people of the Great Southern Region are a tenacious bunch and they know they’re not onto something just great. They’re onto something spectacular."

"And as more people take the time to visit and discover wines that not only have immense flavour, but an immense sense of place as well, the wines of Great Southern will reach their proper places as ‘Great’ wines. Until then, savvy wine lovers can enjo...

The Taste Great Southern festival is a major event on the calendar in Western Australia. Tens of thousands across the state and, on top of that, international travelers, descend into Albany, Mount Barker, Denmark and other towns to enjoy the delightful local produce, immerse in the musical festivities and rub shoulders with renowned celebrity chefs and winemakers. 

This annual event takes deep pride of what the region offers. The expansive coastline and fertile farmlands provide for fresh seafood, phenomenal farm produce and high-quality meat. Needless to say, the high density of exceptional wineries spread across this region promises visitors a taste of cool climate wines of distinction and the exciting opportunity to meet the winemakers behind them! 

The timing of the festival cannot be better for me as late March into early April represents the harvest period for the late-ripening, cool climate grapes. The invitation from Rockcliffe to visit the Great S...

Let's be honest. How many native Chinese winemakers do you see globally? 

Judges, critics, certified educators, stewards, connoisseurs and bloggers. Yes, there are many locally and internationally.

But a Chinese winemaker in a town of 6,500, located in the deep Southwestern part of Australia? A Chinese winemaker of a 5-red star winery? A Chinese winemaker who has a decade of experience over multiple vintages, different regions and varied grape varieties?

Michael Ng is, in my humble opinion, a head-turner in the industry. And if you leave aside the crass, superficial differentiation, I continue to find a set of captivating qualities.

During my time at Rockcliffe, I spent a couple of hours with Michael. His steadfast commitment to the daily labors of the winery meant our interaction was limited. But the time we shared left me with a deep, meaningful impression. 

Whilst the romantic allure of winemaking has diminished compared to the time he first started, Michael stil...
