South Burnett Wine Region with Luke Fitzpatrick of Clovely Estate
This show was published 07 May 2010
Luke Fitzpatrick is the chief winemaker at Clovely Estate in South Burnett, Queensland Australia. Luke talks to us about the region, the vineyard and making wine.
Clovely Estate was first planted in 1997 and is owned by the Heading family who have been cattle and dairy farmers in South Burnett for over 100 years. They now have 174 hectares of vineyard and in 2004 established a winery to process all grapes in-house. The main white varieties are Chardonnay, Semillon and Verdelho. The reds are Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot but they are experimenting with many other white and red varieties.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
