coates wines mclaren vale

Duane Coates is one of the quiet achievers of the Australian Wine Scene ( Masters in Oenology and an MBA from Adelaide University & soon to become a Master of Wine). His winemaking philosophy is simple: the highest quality fruit from sustainable vineyards ( some organic), harvest when properly ripe and a natural winemaking approach (minimal intervention – wild yeasts, unfined, no additions of tannin, enzyme and acid).

Huon Hooke: “ Every wine I’ve tasted of McLaren Vale’s Duane Coates has been excellent…..”

Highly impressive wines – a style that bridges the gap between fruit driven Australian style and savoury complex wines of old world Europe.

The Vine Press will be hosting a fun stand up tasting of Coates Wines as well as Curly Flat, 2 of Australia’s leading producers, Thurs 15 April…. . $25 per pers. 6.30-8pm.
