Adelaide Hills Crush

Crush 09 will continue to build on the success of this key Adelaide Hills Festival. In addition to providing a wonderful showcase for the very best the Region has to offer on the Australia Day weekend, Crush 09 is taking an innovative direction in offering complimentary tutored tastings through the day on three of our key varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Shiraz.

These ‘Discover more…’ sessions will give both new and more experienced wine lover the opportunity to learn some of the secrets of these wonderful wines from our gifted young winemakers and take those secrets home with them. Darryl Catlin of Shaw & Smith will be comparing Adelaide Hills and New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, Peter Dredge of Petaluma will be inviting people to rediscover the elegance of Chardonnay and Erinn Klein and Phillippe Morin will be comparing cool and warm climate and French Shiraz.

There will also be lots of fun with 17 different venues offering everything from an Amy Winehouse tribute at Hahndorf Hill Winery to an opportunity experience the thrill of black cockatoos flying in at dusk at Sinclairs Gully.

Crush 09 will also be the start of a journey leading through three further, seasonal events during the year which will celebrate Chardonnay and Sparkling Wines in Autumn, Adelaide Hills Reds in Winter and the season’s new Sauvignon Blancs in Spring.

Through encouraging a deeper knowledge of these wonderful varieties producers continue their commitment to encourage both greater appreciation and safe drinking of Adelaide Hills Wine, which can be tasted in the vineyard only 20 minutes from Adelaide city. For more information see
