Vinden Wines x Catalina Somerset Semillon | 10.5% Alc./ vol. | Limited release.

Due to the lockdown, the restaurant has been closed for several months, therefore we have a limited number of cases of this exceptional wine to sell.

This wine was a bespoke project- a collaboration between Catalina Restaurant and Vinden Wines. The wine was hand crafted in the Hunter and refined by the exceptional palates of the team at Catalina to produce something truly unique. 

Sourced from Somerset Vineyard, which was planted in 1969 over fine clay loam soil, the fruit was picked in early February 2020. The juice was fermented on fine solids and extended lees contact was allowed before being bottled. 

This wine shows the character of the old gnarled vines; citrus fruit refreshing natural acidity, and delicate minerality. 

Single bottle price $35

Purchase a case of six for $120 ($20 per bottle)

Purchase a case of twelve for $210 ($17.50 per bottle)

2021 Vinden Headcase Rose

Nothing screams summer, quite like a smashable rosé.

Multiple ferments in stainless, barrels and concrete egg’s were blended together to create a delicious, dry, textural rosé. This guy is made from Cabernet, Mourvèdre, Shiraz, Chardonnay & Semillon. This is my favourite rosé I've ever made, with a huge influence from Bandol - for those of you who know me, I drink that stuff by the gallon. Sourced from Inglewood, Somerset, Vinden & Tawarri Vineyards across the Hunter Valley.

12.5% Alc./vol.

2021 Vinden Wines Chardonnay

This Chardonnay was sourced from our Somerset Vineyard. The blocks were planted by the Howard family in 1973, 1980 & 1987 over red volcanic clay and fine sandy clay loam soil. The fruit was handpicked and basket pressed with the juice transferred directly to large format, tight grain, French & Austrian oak, where the wine underwent fermentation. During the seven-month élevage, bâtonnage was conducted to build complexity. A modern Hunter ‘Chardy’, balancing fruit and minerality, with texture and beautiful lees weight.

2021 Vinden Headcase Charmless Man

Named after the Blur Song, ‘Charmless Man’, this wine was an experimental batch for the 2021 vintage. This funky little blend of Shiraz, Cabernet & Alicante Bouschet is light, fun and delicious.  Enjoy it now or on a hot summers day serve it chilled with a straw. Cheers!
