Et monster af en vin. Er man til Mollydooker eller Greenock Creek, så vin man klappe i sine hænder her. Masser af power og juice pakket ind i en silkeblød og cremet vin. En vin der vækker opsigt.

Senest bedømt i januar 2020.

Sellicks Hill Wines ligger en stor ære i at frembringe sine vine på en så organisk og bæredygtig måde som muligt. Det betyder at der ikke anvendes herbicider, pesticider eller anden form for syntetiske kemikalier hverken på markerne eller i vineriet.

Noter fra vinmageren

Named after the much cherished mother of Modestino Piombo, founder of the Piombo vineyard. This wine is about the celebration of life, love, family and friends…. All the good things! Hand-crafted tiny parcels of prime McLaren Vale fruit grown and cared for on the beautiful base of Sellicks Hill. Valletta represents the harmonious blending of our family of grape varieties and is as deep, warm and comforting as a mother’s embrace.

Shiraz 85%, Grenache 10%, Mourvedre 5%
Region: McLaren Vale (sub region: Sellicks Hill) 100%

Paul’s notes:

2016, supplied depth of fruit and spice.
Steady ripening conditions in the Vale and particularly at Sellicks Hill, allowing the development of spectacular fruit.

Valletta is part of our art series, premium range of wines. The shiraz is 100% Piombo vineyard (Sellicks Hill’s own) and is second only in the barrel selections to the flagships, “Piombo” and “Diavolo”.

A spicy little beast, Valletta is eager to please at the very first sniff. Full mouth of firy shiraz with a following act of warm Grenache fruits and the lovely elegant tannins to finish from the Mourvedre.

Built for immediate drinking pleasure with the ability to develop further in bottle.

“Spicy, cheeky, showy and fulfilling. Valletta is a giant killer and crowd pleaser.”

Om Sellicks Hill Wines

The Wine Tree er stolte af at kunne sige velkommen tilbage til Sellicks Hill Wines i Danmark. Vinpassionister vil vide at Daniel Vine tidligere importerede de exceptionelt gode og karakterfulde vine fra Sellicks Hill Wines. Men efter at Daniel Vine besluttede sig for udelukkende at satse på deres egne vine, Poppelvej Wines, var det kun et spørgsmål om tid før at andre fik øjnene op for Sellicks Hills kvaliteter. Vi er stolte af at det blev os. Sellicks Hill Wines har nemlig en stil som vi synes er en fantastisk tilføjelse til vores udvalg. Stilen er en “larger than life” power og dybde, der forstår at forene en nærmest vinagtig fond med nuancer og personlighed.

Sellicks Hill Wines er startet af Paul Petagna, der stadig driver stedet og udøver sin magi. Paul ligger en stor ære i at frembringe sine vine på en så organisk og bæredygtig måde som overhovedet muligt, hvilket betyder at der ikke anvendes herbicider, pesticider eller anden form for syntetiske kemikalier hverken på markerne eller i vineriet.

History

Some have wineries, but here at Sellicks Hill, we have “The Shed”. The Shed is where it all began and where it all still happens.

When Paul first met his wife to be, Angela, it wasn’t long before he realised how important a role wine was in the life of his Italian born father-in-law to be, Modestino Piombo’s life.

Before too long Paul found himself riding shot-gun in Modestino (Steve’s) HZ Kingswood ute, on their way to Mclaren Vale to pick grenache that was to be brought back to surburban Adelaide to be turned into wine.

These antics took place in Steves work Shed and it is from there the winemaking duo were to spark a great relationship both with each other but also with Grapes, Wine and Sheds.

Jump forward to today.
After purchasing the property at Sellicks Hill in Mclaren vale, that the Piombo family turned into a vineyard, it didn’t take the two wine nuts long to turn one of the Sheds into a micro Winery.

“The Shed” was born. Once the produce in the shed was found to be of excellent quality it wasn’t long before every mate, wine nut and general drunkard were to come calling. Tasting from barrel to barrel whilst pontificating over the merits of its contents became a regular event with visitors quite regularly finding themselves in a time-warp that would eat away hours with only the dreaded phone call from the missus bringing the ritual to an end.

Rødvin. Australien.
