Winemaking Note

A balanced blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc allows each variety to show its strengths. Gentle winemaking techniques were used to showcase the unique varietal and regional fruit characters. The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night, crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks for settling overnight before a cool ferment was initiated. After fermentation was complete, the wines were carefully assessed before blending and bottling.

Winemaker

Winemaker Sam Glaetzer leads the Cartwheel winemaking team, bringing with him a wealth of award winning experience and the talent that has become synonymous with the Glaetzer name in Australian winemaking circles.

Sam Glaetzer is a winemaker with an unmistakable pedigree. Born in South Australia's Mt Gambier in 1974, Sam grew up amongst winemakers of an extremely high-calibre. His father, Colin, is currently working as a winemaker and Sam's uncle is well-known Wolf Blass legend John Glaetzer.

During his youth Sam lived in such renowned wine growing areas as Rutherglen, the Barossa Valley and Great Western.

Due to this constant exposure to the highs and lows of life as a winemaker and despite completing qualifications as an engineer, Sam decided to continue the Glaetzer family traditition and completed the world-famous Roseworthy winemaking course at Adelaide University.

While at university, Sam worked as a cellarhand at Barossa Valley Estates and went on to various roles within Beringer Blass, using his engineering background to become Environmental Engineer and working through to his current position as one of the Senior Winemakers.

Sam has a desire to make wines that consumers the world-over can enjoy, and is well on the way to achieving this goal with the release of the new Cartwheel range.

Married to another Beringer Blass winemaker, Kirsten Glaetzer, and with brother Ben also in the field, Sam has little chance of getting away from winemaking. However, when he does take a break, he enjoys his time mountain bike riding, cooking and travelling.
