Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Light straw in colour with lime hues.

Aroma

The nose offers citrus and floral aromas of lemon pith and jasmine.

Palate

The palate is tight and elegant, with lime flavours dominating throughout. Impressive length and natural acidity will allow for graceful aging.

Food Matching

The perfect choice with salt and pepper squid or Vietnamese rice paper rolls.

Cellaring Potential

Drinking wonderfully now and will develop toasty aged characters with careful long term cellaring.

Winemaking Notes

The grapes were crushed and drained with only the delicate free-run juice retained. This juice was then fermented cool after a settling period to retain varietal character and freshness.

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.
