Coulter Wines

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

James' Review

Chris Coulter had a 22-year previous life as a chef, but fell in love with wine in the early 1990s, and managed to fit in a vintage at Coldstream Hills as a cellar rat. In 2007 he undertook a winemaking degree, and secured work with Australian Vintage Limited, gaining large volume winemaking experience first in Mildura and then at the then Chateau Yaldara in the Barossa Valley, remaining there through 2014 under Australian Vintage Limited, and thereafter as part of the 1847 winemaking team after its acquisition of the Yaldara site. Coulter Wines was born in the 2015 vintage as a side project, making wines from another universe – adding nothing other than SO2, movements are by gravity, and the wine is unfiltered where practicable. He purchases and hand-picks grapes from premium vineyards in the Adelaide Hills (chardonnay, sangiovese and barbera). A Mataro is planned for 2017. Exports to Singapore.
