Overview

Overview

The origins of Quelltaler date back to 1865 when 50 acres of the then named ‘Springvale’ vineyard were first planted by Francis Treloar, an early pioneer. The name Quelltaler originates from “Quellthaler” which is a German translation for ‘Spring Vale’. The home of Annie’s Lane is the heritage-listed Quelltaler cellar door and surrounding vineyards in the heart of Watervale.

The Annie's Lane Quelltaler Shiraz Cabernet finely balances the richness of Shiraz with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon. Plums, raspberries, red and blackcurrants, mulberries, and spices along with chalky fine tannins

Steven Creber

"Aromas of chocolate, green leaf and/or mint (depending on how you see it), earth and spice, the latter perhaps an oak character. Only medium-bodied, the fruit is bright and buoyant, fresh and youthful in nature, with both varieties contributing to the spread of flavours. The tannin feels a touch gummy, but a little more bottle age should see it all come together."
