Region Coonawarra

Coonawarra

The first vines were planted in Coonawarra by John Riddoch in 1890, however it was not until the renewed interest in table wine production in the 1950's that Coonawarra was brought into the limelight. Located almost 380 km southeast of Adelaide, Coonawarra is today one of the most famous red wine regions in Australia. Its weathered limestone terra rossa soils, avaibility of water and relatively cool maritime climate make it a unique viticultural region. Extremely flat and unprotected, Coonawarra is exposed both to the swinging influences of the cool Great Southern Ocean and hot, dry northerly winds. Spring frosts also pose a major threat with the potential to wipe out entire crops. Mechanical harvesting is widely employed in the region although smaller producers prefer to tend their vines by hand. Coonawarra is best known for classically-styled Cabernet Sauvignon, although in good years, Shiraz from the region is also very compelling.

Winery JAMIESONS RUN

Langton’s Selections Jamieson’s Run Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon Under its original name Mildara, Jamieson’s Run was a pioneering force in Coonawarra. Jamieson’s Run was a corporate brand owned by the Foster’s Wine Estates until 2007 when the winery was sold off to reduce Foster’s capital assets in Coonawarra. The wine is now made at the neighbouring Wynns Coonawarra Estate. In 1955 Ron Haselgrove, Mildara’s managing director, purchased 12.5 hectares of prime Coonawarra land and in 1963 built one of the first modern wineries in the district. Mildara was principally a fortified wine producer and needed to move into dry table wine. In 1963, after searching around for suitable land, he settled on Coonawarra after tasting the medium-bodied and gorgeously seductive wines of Bill Redman. Initially he purchases a parcel of 12,735 litres but quickly and presciently predicted that Coonawarra would be the next big thing. The Redmans helped plant the vineyard and played no small part

Initially he purchases a parcel of 12,735 litres but quickly and presciently predicted that Coonawarra would be the next big thing. The Redmans helped plant the vineyard and played no small part in the opening up of the region. Further vineyard acquisitions during the 1960s lead to Mildara becoming a major vineyard holder, most on the best pieces of Terra Rossa soils. Mildara enjoyed some early successes with experimental table wines such as the 1958 Shiraz Cabernet, a Hunter/Coonawarra blend. Its most famous wine – and one of the great Australian wines of its era – was the hugely successful 1963 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, affectionately known as Peppermint Patty. Its interplanting of Malbec was considered innovative during the 1960s although the variety is largely out of favour these days. The wines enjoyed plenty of show success. Indeed the 1981 Mildara Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz won the Jimmy Watson Trophy at the Melbourne Wine Show. The 1988 Mildara ‘Jamieson’s Run’ Dry Red won the same trophy in 1989. The winery has since changed hands and morphed into the pleasingly named Jamieson’s Run Winery, named after a sheep station in Victoria where the original Mildara winery was established. Jamieson’s Run is often listed on the secondary wine market as well as vintages under the Mildara label. The latter wines are hugely prized by collectors in the know, especially the Cabernet Shirazes of the 1960s and 1970s. During the early 1990s Mildara Alexanders became hot property for a short period. However the Jamieson’s Run label is a somewhat confounding. There are a number of single vineyard wines including Alexander Block Cabernet Sauvignon, O’Dea’s Block Cabernet Sauvignon, McShane’s Block Shiraz and Rothwell Cabernet Sauvignon. The marketers promise these wines are classics. While the wines may be enduring cellaring wines, they have a really poor profile on the secondary wine market. On the other hand the standard Jamieson’s Run wines are often really well made inexpensive wines. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
