We are very honoured and excited to be recognized by Australia's pre-eminent wine critic James Halliday AM as a five star winery again this year. The five star category acknowledges ‘outstanding wineries producing wines of very high quality.’ ~ Thank you to the entire Karrawatta team for all your hard work in the vineyard, winery and cellar door. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thanks for visiting @sawinehunter ~ Repost from @sawinehunter using @RepostRegramApp - Rainy sundays spent drinking red wine in the Adelaide Hills. We settled in with a glass of the @karrawatta Joseph Shiraz and Christos Paddock Cab Sav. Perfect way to spend the afternoon.
So proud of our first release Langhorne Creek ‘The Meddler’ Malbec, 96 points from Mr James Halliday AM. ~ “From the estate's Christo's Paddock Vineyard, this is an impressive first release of a straight Malbec, boasting a more silken, almost chiffon-like tannin profile to the heftier reds in the stable. This is mid-ruby at best and medium-bodied, with no heavy bones. A chassis of purple florals, blueberry and a potpourri of dried herbs define the palate. The acidic cylinders are bright and crunchy, 'meddling' effortlessly with a carburettor of slick oak, while driving the flavours long and broad.” ~ Halliday Wine Companion 2019

Repost from @throughthecellardoor using @RepostRegramApp - I came across @karrawatta winery on a rainy day tasting across the Southern Adelaide Hills. It turned out to be one of my favourite vineyards from across the whole wine region. Stylish, warm cellar door with welcoming staff, delicious wines from each of their vineyards, delivering value and quality especially with Shiraz and Chardonnay. The home site growing at 540m above sea level is a well maintained example of cool climate viticulture. In fact, Karrawatta are experts in the vineyard, with founder Mark Gilbert owning a vineyard management company assisting over 45 producers before founding his own vineyard in addition to the management business they still run today! Mark is the 6th generation of the Gilbert family in the wine industry starting with Joseph Gilbert who, in 1847, famously lost the Karrawatta name with a coin flip at the local pub due to a naming dispute with a neighbour and renamed that property "Pewsey Vale" instead. This family has an eye for vineyard sites as during the late 20th century @pewseyvalevineyard would be re-established and become the shining example of quality winemaking that it is today! Next time you are in the Adelaide Hills, seek out Karrawatta! #adelaidehills#adelaide#shiraz#southaustralia#karrawatta#karrawattacellardoor#karrawattawines
It is the perfect time of year to explore the Adelaide Hills. During Winter our wine flights at cellar door include our new release of 2016 Spartacus Cabernet Malbec Shiraz. Come in and try our flagship wine and warm up by our fire.
