James Ewart grew up making wine at the side of his father, one of Australia’s great Chardonnay winemakers. James is one of a very few winemakers who have also completed a graduate diploma in grape growing (viticulture), from the University of Adelaide in 1999. This followed his undergraduate degree specializing in geology, soils, and chemistry – valuable knowledge when matching Noble Vines’ time-honored vines to specific locations with one of North America’s leading viticulturists, vineyard manager Charlie Hossom.
James’ experience includes Mountadam Winery, under the tutelage of David Wynn, known for his pioneering work with Cabernet and Syrah in Coonawarra, Australia, Cloudy Bay in Marlborough, and his family’s estate in the Adelaide Hills. A brief stint at Noble Vines’ San Bernabe Vineyard in 2000 turned into a career there when Monterey County legend Bill Petrovic recognized James’ skill in making wine with a vineyard-based philosophy. James is proud to carry on Mr. Petrovic’s legacy at the Noble Vines Collection.
On the nose, aromas of black cherry, ripe currant, fresh herbs, and lightly roasted coffee. On the palate, supple tannins and balanced acidity bold flavours of blackberry, black cherry and toasty oak, with hints of spicy, black pepper. Pair with steak, braised short ribs, or BBQ’d burgers.
Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes are sourced from vineyards throughout the Lodi region. Fermented at a slightly warmer temperature than usual, the wine rests in French and American oak for a minimum of 3 months before bottling and release.
Good stuff for the price. Our go to favourite for general dinner and sharing wine.
