A Flask of Wine and Thou – Is Paradise Enow

Bali-based Artisan Estates Launches Artisan Sauvignon Blanc and Artisan Shiraz.


Bali-based wine makers Artisan Estates have raised the ante in the increasingly competitive and growing circle of craftsmen producing quality wines on the island.

The introduction of Artisan Estate’s latest varietals – the 2011 Artisan Sauvignon Blanc and the 2011 Artisan Shiraz represent yet another rebuttal to those who dismiss the possibility of a that a quality table wine can be produced in Bali.

As with all Artisan Estate wine’s, the two new varieties have been produced from 100% fresh wine grape juice imported from Western Australia. The winemakers at Artisan Estates take pains to point out, “No frozen product, local grapes or grape juice concentrates are used to make our wines.”

The production of the first red wine by Artisan Estates in Bali comes at the end of 7 years of painstaking research by an award-winning Australian winemaker, Craig Newton.

Using established red winemaking techniques; Craig has devised a remarkable wine incorporating 100% fresh Western Australian Shiraz juice, specially processed in Australia to preserve its great color, body and structure before being lovingly shipped to Bali under strict temperature control where it undergoes fermentation into wine.

The results, sampled at a recent tasting, is an eminently drinkable red wine that possesses striking deep a crimson-purple color and a taste that is rich and smooth with full fruit flavors containing a hint of French Oak used in the maturation process.

Artisan Estate Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the cool climate region of Pemberton, Western Australia. This wine displays wonderful varietal characteristics of gooseberries, asparagus and green peas with a clean crisp finish.

The latest additions to the Aritisan Estate range join the well-established and popular 2010 Artisan Chardonnay and 2010 Artisan Classic.
