First planted in 1967, the Contour Vineyard was one of the first plantings of Shiraz at Quelltaler Estate and is its finest Shiraz vineyard. The `Contour` system from which this vineyard derives its name was once state-of-the-art viticultural practice for maximising water retention in dry land vineyards.

Winery Tasting Notes


Clare Valley This Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from two quite distinctive pockets of the Clare Valley. The first parcel comes from the Annie's Lane vineyard in Polish Hill which is the coolest part of the valley. On average fruit from the Polish Hill area ripens three weeks later than Watervale. The remainder is from the Quelltaler Estate vineyard at Watervale, a warmer Clare microclimate which matures earlier than its Polish Hill neighbour.

Winemaking Notes

This wine was made from unclarified juice which was left to settle, and then racked off gross lees. A portion was barrel fermented in new French oak, the remainder was fermented cool in stainless steel before being matured in predominantly French oak.

Food Matching

Steamed crab or a grilled chicken salad.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The renowned Clare Valley is the home of Annie's Lane.

Annie's Lane wines were launched in 1996, named after a real place and a real person.

Anne's Lane was so-named at the turn of the 20th century when Annie Wayman's horse and cart got bogged along the boundary of a Clare Valley vineyard, as she delivered lunch and warm drinks to pruners in the vineyard. So, it seemed only reasonable that Annie, a stalwart of Clare Valley folklore, should be remembered for her inimitable services to the vineyard workers of the region.

The home of Annie's Lane is the heritage listed Quelltaler winery at the heart of Watervale, in the Clare Valley's south. Quelltaler is the regions oldest and most important wineries, dating back to 1863.

Annie's Lane is now one of the finest wineries in Australia's renowned Clare Valley and is known for crafting a range of reputable wines from some of the oldest vines in the region.

The Annie's Lane wines rely on regional and varietal expression; encompassing a diversity of wines from elegant fresh white to rich, fruit-flavoured reds. Annie's Lane features a core Clare Valley range of wines as well as a limited release range of ultra-premium wines released under the Copper Trail label.

The most successful of all the wines has been the super-premium Copper Trail Shiraz - awarded Visy's Great Australian Shiraz Challenge and overall category winner for best Shiraz in Winestate Magazine's World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge for the Copper Trail Shiraz 2005.
