I hope you enjoy our first edition. We show you the Watervale Hotel’s secret garden, another side of Slate’s head chef and feature the rugged beauty of an outback station near urra. And we loved finding out what makes the Mad astard tick, really appreciating his candour and his enthusiasm for our photo shoot. We welcome aboard Nick yan for his expert wine reviews and he catches up with another prominent winemaking personality, Marnie oberts. alley Maga ine is inserted in our main publication, The Plains Producer, which covers the Adelaide Plains, the Lower and Mid North. Plenty of copies also will be distributed at popular public places like tourism centres, cafes, wineries and various retail outlets.

experienced at all times of the year. If you’re like me, the routine of life is always hounding you. There are always more jobs to be done or reasons to stay at home. ut if you are reading this sitting on the couch at home, why not plan to take a relaxed Sunday afternoon drive and discover for yourself why the alley is such a magical place. I still remember as a child cooking some snags over a small campfire on the side of the road after getting lost down a Clare alley backroad. Grab your family or friends and make a day of it or stay for a bit longer - you won’t regret it. I hope to see you on the backroads somewhere soon. Andrew Manuel Publisher

eaving the bitumen, the dirt rises up behind the car and as I set a foot on the ground to get out and open the gate, red dust pu fs around my shoe. It feels like it could be a million miles away from home and, driving through the gates of edcli fe Station, via urra, there is an unmistakable feeling that you can just leave your troubles right there at the beginning of the driveway. Station owners, pastoralists odi and ohn Lehmann, have a catchphrase at their new tourist venture, “ slowdown edcli fe”, and it is an easy mantra to adopt when you arrive o f the beaten track. There is something about the place that makes it almost inevitable that you will take a big, deep breath and, just as the sign in the driveway says, ‘slow down’ in more ways than one. edcli fe Station is just two-and-a-half hours from Adelaide and an easy 0-minute drive, on a mostly bitumen road, from the Clare alley. It’s a working ,300-hectare sheep station which has lung open its gates to tourists, inviting them to stay in what was, until recently, a fully functioning shearers uarters. The renovated, 00-year-old building can accommodate up to guests and despite a fresh lick of paint, repairs to original timber, updated furnishings and some other modern touches, the building retains its historical charm. A nod to its heritage remains on the walls of the living room, where a framed gallery of photographs hangs proudly, honouring some of the shearing teams which, over the years, have generated the property’s main income, wool. When ohn and odi purchased edcli fe in 0 , they knew right away the shearer’s uarters would be an ideal tourist venture. “Since moving here, we’ve hosted big family events Christmas gatherings and birthdays and we wanted to simulate that,” odi said. “It’s just a really good space to get a group of family and friends together. ou can sit around the kitchen bench making pizza, or around a campfire, the kids can just roam and ride bikes, build cubbies and just be kids. “ ut we are close enough to visit urra or Clare or pop across to the river, just 35 kilometres away.”

years we’ve been here, we’ve been in drought.”

Today, spear grass grows – a signal of welcome rain a few months back - blue bush, saltbush and black oak push out from the red dirt and, even in the harsh dryness of the countryside, edcli fe emanates a rugged Australian beauty. edcli fe Station has a changing landscape and, as its name suggests, red cli fs dominate. They give way to a huge, natural amphitheatre. It’s a sight to behold. “We love to take our guests or give them directions down there for a barbecue,” John said. “They could have a catered dinner party if they please, and make a day of it, maybe even with a round of golf on our rustic, bush course in the natural amphitheatre. “ ut the real beauty of the red cli fs comes around sunset when the cli fs change colour – incredible colours, a bit

like the Painted Desert, layers of colours that change even if you turn your back for a minute.” There are walking trails and bike tracks, and space to just breathe. And edcli fe is a starga er’s delight, situated on the edge of an o ficial ‘dark one’. Studies investigating the property’s own ‘dark one’ status are underway. Having once been home to renowned South Australian artist, Allyson Parsons, it’s also a proven haven for artists and photographers.

this year and plans to fully restock their 6000-head of sheep, the couple remains keen to welcome guests to edcli fe. A resurgence in ‘holidaying at home’ throughout the pandemic has helped them realise their dream. “For five out of the six years we’ve been here we’ve been in drought,” John said. “Last year was our best year but it will take a while to recover. It certainly wasn’t the ideal start in 2014, the drought was worse than the worst-case scenario we’d thought of and neighbours have told us it’s the worst it’s been in their lifetime. “But with intrastate tourism booming, our timing – opening in June 2020, having delayed our planned May opening due to COVID-19 – has actually worked out well and we’re finding our visitors are enjoying the chance to just slow down and take a breath.” www.redcli festation.com.au

s you follow the good-humoured signs along the well-worn dirt road toward the Clare Valley’s most notorious cellar door, a dense canopy of trees tightening its grip the further you travel, you can’t help but sense the descent into madness. “Watch out for wabbits and woos,” reads the first sign. “Watch out for wurtles and wocks” you’re advised, as you cross the narrow river. “Today’s special: Free Insults’’, is scrawled crudely on a blackboard. “Enter if you dare”, on another. More signs. “100 metres, 50 metres.” “Keep driving. You’re almost there. 10 metres ....” It’s a tense countdown. The Mad astard himself greets you. He’s wearing a company shirt with the name “Randy” embroidered on the breast. You’re told to wait because he’d like to

spend some private time in the kitchen with his wife, Annette (his language is a little more explicit), before he returns to share his penchant for wearing women’s bathing costumes to shock his friends on houseboats. “I like to shock,” Mark arry says with a wicked grin. “And I’ve done some terrible things”. arry is commander-in-chief of Mad astard wines, a small-batch, multiaward winning concern that’s carved a unique niche in the Clare Valley’s famous terroir. He learned his craft from his legendary father at im arry wines but, after “burning out” and taking a break from winemaking, he decided in 2009 to “get back on the horse” and start his own winery. arry shared his plans with close friend and renowned Margaret River winemaker Richard Rowe, who replied:

“Well then you’re a mad bastard”. And a new legend was born. arry is a gifted winemaker but these days he’s known as much for his twisted humour as his clean, precise wines. “And that’s why I called it Mad astard,” he said. “I wanted to get away with stu f. I wanted to have fun. “Some people don’t get the humour when they see the signs in the driveway and they just keep driving. They’re just snobs. I don’t want them. “ ut generally people love it. They come in here to be insulted. And don’t you worry, I’ll (expletive deleted) insult you. ut honestly, I’m always polite about it. “One bloke was tasting my wines and complaining that nothing was grabbing him. I said ‘I’ll grab your bloody balls if you want?’ His wife said ‘No, no, I do that. “And, if you ask for directions to the

toilet, I’ll show you but I’ll also remind you to smile for the camera”. The laugh that follows is at once disarming and just a little unsettling. arry enthusiastically tells of the occasion his sister Julie, who was working in his cellar door at the time, brought four Japanese girls out the back to see Mark and observe some of the winemaking process. Within minutes he’d convinced the young tourists they had to remove their clothes to help him foot stomp some grapes in the fermenter. “I said ‘this is what we always do, so we don’t stain our clothes’, Mark said. “They actually went to take their clothes o f. ulie started yelling ‘Mark, Mark! ‘Girls stop it, he’s just bullshitting’. ut behind the vulgar eccentricity there’s a gentle, more serious side to arry. Those who know him know his heart is in the right place. He feels

to Mark Barry genuinely blessed to have lived his life in the Clare Valley and to have worked in the wine industry. And, as he talks to the Valley Magazine in the middle of yet another vintage, he says he still gets a kick out of it. “I do. Because every year I do something di ferent,” he says. “This year I’m going to make a couple of thousand litres of mataro rose. A couple of years ago I was getting bored so I started making vintage port, which has won trophies at the Clare alley wine show. “In 0 , I’m bringing out a cabernet shiraz blend, a cabernet mataro blend. I’m really getting into blends because most people are doing straight varietals. I feel the need to do something di ferent. “I’m so fortunate to have been here all my life. I’m fifth generation in Clare. ou can still see the scar on my neck where they removed the other head. My mother

used to say, ‘I think they removed the wrong head’!” Barry is excited about the new generation of Clare Valley winemakers.

While admiring the work of his nephews Tom and Sam in continuing rich traditions at Jim Barry Wines, he seems particularly excited about those embracing alternate varieties and experimental techni ues. “I’m so impressed with Marnie oberts of Matriarch and ogue ,’’ arry said. “She’s a fantastic winemaker, really creative. “And Michael Corbett of Vanguardist wines is doing some really interesting things. The oerner brothers Damon and ono have their own uni ue style. “And that’s what these kids are doing. They’re taking a chance. I want them to succeed, I want them to prosper, so that we have that individuality in Clare. It’s just that I personally can’t get into all that stu f now. I’m too old”. Alongside Barry for the entire Mad Bastard ride has been his treasured wife of 10 years, Annette.

“I’m a rat bag and she calms me down,” arry said. “She’s front of house in cellar door and sometimes she’ll just kick me out because I’m being too rude. “People ask her how she puts up with me and she’ll simply say: ‘Alcohol’. “ ut let’s face it, women want to be entertained. They don’t want to come home to some boring husband who’s whingeing and complaining. So ... I entertain.” And there’s that wicked grin again. At 64, Barry might be too old to keep pace with the enterprise and invention of the new school of Clare alley winemakers but he’s not going anywhere. He plans to plough on from one vintage to the next, living the dream and enjoying the freedom that comes from doing it all himself. His way. “ etirement ,” he asks. “This is retirement. And I plan to keep doing it until the day I die.”

Words: Paul Dowling Pictures: than Allen As the warm autumn sun rises over the Clare Valley’s eastern ranges, the Penobscot Farm awakens and bursts into life. irds sing, lowers bloom, chickens roam. Gardeners stride purposefully through natural corridors of vegetables and vines and Frankie Blue, the celebrity Sta fordshire Terrier with his own Instagram page, gallops from one end of the property to the next, barking defiantly and collecting sticks that are far too big for him. This is the home that Warrick Duthy and Nicola Palmer made – and it’s a magical place. “To be able to get up in the morning and be among this garden and taste the lavours it’s unimaginable,” says Palmer. “It’s such a wonderful source of creativity for everyone involved”. Duthy and Palmer are the husband and wife team behind the stunning transformation of the nearby Watervale Hotel – they decided to buy the pub when they were having dinner there one night. Many have come to know the pair at the hotel – Palmer, the general manager, “Creative Licensee” and vastlyexperienced executive chef who made her name at her parents’ Skillogalee estaurant Duthy, the hands-on “Poetic Licensee”, just as much at home turning on the charm waiting tables as he is overseeing the business from day to day. But it’s at the other end of this paddock-to-plate operation where the magic really happens and you find Palmer and Duthy in their absolute element. Continued over page

“We’re growing for the plate, not the grocery store”

Down on the farm – the heartbeat of the Watervale Hotel To service the Watervale Hotel’s ambitious restaurant, they created the Penobscot Farm in their own nine-acre backyard. Home to around 200 fruit, nut and berry trees and countless seasonal vegetables, it’s organic, sustainable farming at its most pure. “What we need to show, and I think people are seeing it, is the more you invest in the organics and the energy and the production here, the more you see that di ference on the plate,” Duthy says. “If you grow genuinely fresh, organic, biodynamic produce you will taste the di ference, you’ll love it. And people are prepared to pay a bit of a premium for it. “We’re growing for the plate, not the grocery store.” The Penobscot farm itself is the

creation of elusive local, Jared Murray, of “Green Living Permaculture”. Don’t ask him to talk to the media or have his picture taken but he’s a permaculture mastermind, who built this farm from the ground up. “He’s our angel,” says Palmer. “We’re just learning, he’s the one with the knowledge. “He came in here, walked around, tasted the soil, looked at where the sun fell and said ‘this would be my dream job’. “So, we gave him a blank canvass. We said ‘you’re the one with the expertise, you tell us where to plant things and you set it all up to run under your principles’.” Those principles relate to organics the avoidance of synthetic sprays and fertilisers as well as biodynamics,

which harness the power of nature and link farming activity to lunar cycles; and permaculture, the farming practice which integrates any human activity with its natural surroundings to produce e ficient, sustainable ecosystems. “It’s all about energy,” says Duthy. “Because the more energy we can derive from the sun, the soil and everything around, the more lavour you have and the more nutrition you have. It’s a simple concept but quite complex in its execution. “And it’s high density. So, you can actually get enormous productivity from a relatively small space, just by throwing everything at it in the right way.” And that prompts Palmer to reveal there are about 46 kilograms of eggplants

to be picked over the next 24 hours. Last year they harvested 360kg of Jerusalem artichokes. Looking down on the farm is Duthy’s and Palmer’s imposing home a circa 1860s bungalow. Duthy is a keen student of its intriguing history and tells a story that is too long for these pages but one which weaves its way through several wealthy families, connecting original owner James Richman and his brother-in-law Sir Walter Hughes of the Clare Valley’s Hughes Park, with Sir Henry Ayres, the five-term South Australian Premier and legendary Frenchman Carl Sobels the first specialist winemaker of uelltaler. A grand pavilion overlooks a wellgrassed expanse that was clearly once a

Wines that express spirit of place and enjoyment. I’ve been living and making wine in the Clare Valley district since 1998. It’s safe to say that I love the region! After eight years of managing the historic Leasingham Wines in the Clare Valley, I took what I had learned and loved about winemaking and established my very own label, Wines by KT. Specialising in my first-love, Riesling, and inspired by this uniquely beautiful part of the world, I’m working to create wines that express spirit of place and enjoyment.We love sharing our passion with fellow wine lovers. The Wines by KT cellar door is open for tasting every Friday - Sunday, long weekends and public holidays. Drop by sometime and say ’g’day’ to KT!

tennis court and it’s not hard to imagine the rich gentry of the late 19th century gathering here for exclusive parties. It was Sobels’ daughter Selma who brought the name Penobscot to the Clare Valley by marrying Ernest Castine, whose family was connected to the town of Castine on the Penobscot River in Maine, SA. They named this property Penobscot – also the name of a native American tribe - when they bought it at the beginning of the 20th century. Palmer and Duthy’s commitment to sustainability extends to how they source their meat, with Mintaro’s Martindale Farm supplying ethically grown lambs and free range chicken coming from Greenslades in Riverton. A kitchen garden has been created directly across

the road from the Watervale Hotel. They’re inviting the public into their patch of paradise via their “Six Senses Tour”, where visitors are encouraged to hear, see, smell, feel and taste their way through the farm. “And the sixth sense is the magic of energy,” says Duthy. He has a point. Spend some time in this impressive place and you leave with the overwhelming impression that Penobscot Farm, for all its independent, individual parts, is really just one living, breathing organism.

The Watervale Hotel has been created as a tourism destination - designed to attract more visitors to our region. To serve the tourists, particularly those cycling or wine tasting around the Valley, the kitchen is open for all-day dining - from 11am to 9pm with a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces offered. The multi-million dollar re-development of the Watervale Hotel is tastefully spectacular and has completely rejuvenated this village in the centre of the Clare Valley wine region. Executive Chef Nicola Palmer has directed all the interior and exterior design to create an amazing series of spaces that collectively suit every occasion – from the veranda bar on Horrocks Highway overlooking Watervale, to private dining rooms, cocktail bars fitted with chesterfield and chaise lounges and the amazing new outdoor beer garden. Nicola has respected the past while creating a legacy for the future and the décor includes historical photographs and artwork by local artists. A key part of the history is ‘The Hell Hole’, a jail built at the hotel in 1868 to house the drunk and disorderly until the police arrived to dispense the law. The jail has been repurposed into a private dining space ideal for meetings, wine dinners, hen’s or buck’s nights, Christmas and other events. The beer garden is surrounded by food theatre. There’s a huge Argentinian-style BBQ known as the ‘Fires of Hell’ that can roast whole lambs and regularly smokes trout, chicken and vegetables plus a wood oven and a spectacular view into the kitchen through floor to ceiling glass.

Soon we hope to open the Chef’s Table – degustation dining inside the kitchen. Dining in this space is not allowed under COVID-safe protocols but we look forward to using it for cooking demonstrations and schools in the future. The Watervale Hotel is a fresh farm-to-plate restaurant in a casual country pub. In fact, the Watervale Hotel was bestowed “Best Restaurant in an SA regional hotel” at the recent AHA awards for the way it serves its epicurean delights. The menu is not pub grub. There are no hamburgers or schnitzels here - although the little Duck Sliders on Vietnamese brioche buns, and the crumbed and pan-fried Lamb Milanese more than satisfy pub fare fans. Most dishes are designed to be shared so that patrons can taste a range of local produce. Other signature dishes include Lamb Cigars, slow cooked, spiced and minced lamb rolled in filo pastry, deep fried and served with herb yoghurt dipping sauce; and Greenslades free range chicken that is honey-brined, smoked and roasted. A feature of the menu is the house made ice-creams and sorbets, many made with farm fresh fruit and herbs. The house-smoked and churned butter served with ciabatta from Clare Rise Bakery is also a treat. The real hero of the Watervale Hotel is the organic, biodynamic Penobscot Farm, operated by local Jared Murray, of Green Living Permaculture, for Nicola and her husband Warrick Duthy. Nicola and her team of chefs see their role as enhancing and enriching the natural flavours of the farm fresh produce. The food is genuine, tasty, and generously served. The Watervale Hotel promises ‘Ethical Epicurean Experiences’. The ethics relate to a ‘no waste’ objective and environmental sustainability and permeate everything the Watervale Hotel does.

This starts with our supply partners, using rye drinking straws, buying whole lambs from Martindale Farm processed at Menzels Meats, sourcing Greenslades Free Range Chicken delivered fresh, growing its own vegetables, fruit, nuts, berries and leaves and taking all compostable waste back to Penobscot Farm. This effort was recognized at the recent Australian Hotels Association Awards for Excellence, with the Watervale awarded Best Environmental Sustainability Practices in a South Australian hotel. The Watervale Hotel also won the award for Best Regional Promotion at the AHA awards, not for an individual initiative but rather for the way in which the Watervale Hotel goes about its everyday business. The wine list represents almost every producer and includes every wine grape variety grown in the Clare Valley. The Watervale Hotel website is a great place to visit when planning your Clare Valley holiday as it helps to promote the other hotels and restaurants in the region, details accommodation options and advises on attractions, cycling, walking and driving tours. The Watervale Hotel has its own guest house right next door, with six bedrooms, two kings, one with en-suite, and four queen bed rooms. There are large dining and lounge rooms and an outdoor dining space secure for dogs and children. Experiences are being developed to tantalize the senses and provide enduring memories. The hero experience is the Six Senses Penobscot Farm Tour followed by a six-course degustation dinner, with or without wine matching. A simpler ‘wine flight’ experience is also offered in the pre-dinner slot of 5-7pm. This wine experience is a tutored tasting that provides insight into Clare Valley climate, geography and geology and how this influences wine styles.

‘A grown-up’s playground’ N

othing could be more idyllic – vineyard covered landscapes, rolling golden hills, historic towns with thriving communities - we are more than just a holiday destination, we are somewhere people can live and thrive. With plenty of options, from land to established homes, the Clare & Gilbert Valleys are a great choice for those wanting to make the move to a fulfilling regional lifestyle. We are not ashamed to say we have some of the best vineyards and wines in the world nestled into our friendly and boutique villages, where meeting the winemaker is part of our every day. Watervale B&B owner, Lynn Wallace, and her husband Ian, made the move from Port Pirie because the Clare Valley was the perfect location for them to bridge the distance between their friends and adult children without compromising their country lifestyle. A clincher for the couple was when they visited a local winery and were told: “Clare is a grown-up’s playground – so many things to do”. “This really resonated with us,” said Lynn.

or the best part of a century, Lake Bumbunga at Lochiel has either been mined or maligned but a shift in perception has uncovered the beauty in the beast. A steady stream of visitors now lows to its shores, hoping to catch a glimpse of the grand pink expanse. And now a new serpentine star of the show has been unveiled - an imposing Loch-eel sculpture - promising to attract even more curious travellers. “We’re getting so many visitors we thought we’d better bring in another subspecies of the Loch Ness monster,” says John Nicholls, local councillor and member of the Lochiel Progress Association (LPA). “It’s certainly going to bring some extra prominence to the place.” The three-and-a-half metre tall Locheel is the creation of Port Broughton mechanic and sculptor, Wayne Dennis, and is the whimsical jewel in the crown of a $450,000 tourism revamp for the area. More than 3500 cars pass through Lochiel each day with about 10 percent of these travellers stopping either at the lake, the local café or toilet facilities. This public interest led to the establishment of the Pink Lake Tiny House, an eco-conscious accommodation option in the town, with plans to add more tiny house o ferings under way. Fashion labels have also recognised the lake’s potential. Fashion shoots for the Adelaide Fashion Festival, Mimco, Couture Love Madness and ullrush have generated additional awareness of Lake Bumbunga. This bu encouraged Wakefield egional Council to partner with the LPA and successfully apply for a grant from the Federal Government’s Building etter egions Fund to develop the Lake umbunga Tourism Infrastructure Project. Town entry signs and a new toilet block were the first major elements of the project, while a free Wi-Fi service - the first in the Wakefield region - has been installed at the Lochiel hall to support the vast volumes of photos and videos taken at the lake and uploaded daily to social media. A viewing platform has been built on the small peninsula, giving visitors an accessible vantage point and protecting

sculpture in just one day. Visitors should be aware the lake showcases other hues including blue, white, purple, grey and brown and, on many occasions, perfect re lections. It’s not always pink but, as the multitude of images captured on social media show, it’s constantly striking. When it does turn pink, we can thank the chemical known as carotene, which is produced by a combination

of halobacteria and salt-loving algae dunaliella salina. Typically, the pink colouration in the water increases as the lake begins to evaporate during the warmer months between July and January. Water is needed for the lake to look pink and, according to anthropologist Norman Tindale, the name Bumbunga derives from the local indigenous term for “rain water lake”. Nicholls’ passion for the Lake and the monster dubbed ‘Lochy’ is, at times, poetic. He proudly quotes from a ‘reliable’ source: “It is said to be a siren, luring only the most foolish of automobile and bullock drivers to their muddy, boggy demise”. Nicholls is thrilled to see the new monster arise and entice others to enjoy the surreal beauty, history and serenity of the pink lake.

hen vintage rolls round each year, Marnie Roberts works furiously on a ‘to-do’ list in preparation. Clean the winery. Organise picking bins. Empty tanks and barrels. Service the car. That last one is more important than you might think. Marnie sources fruit from a wide range of areas for her winemaking projects, everywhere from the Riverland to Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale to the Adelaide Hills, and a typical week during harvest will shift the odometer on her car by four digits. But while she may roam far and wide, there’s no denying the Clare Valley is at the heart of what she does and who she is. Marnie was making wine in her hometown of Mildura and a month into a new relationship with a bloke called Matt, when she was o fered a job with Kirrihill in Clare. “I thought he might’ve been a bit mi fed I’d been looking for jobs interstate as soon as we started dating, so when I

Words: Nick Ryan Pictures: John Krüger told him, a month in, that I was moving to Clare and he could come too, if he wanted, I was a little surprised when he said , ‘Sure, why not?’” Her first Clare vintage was the famously two-paced 2008 season, a year that had been almost perfect until a hellish heat wave descended at the beginning of March. “I thought I’d escaped a warm region for a cooler one, but here I was baking in 44 degrees in Clare,” she recalls. “Talk about a baptism by fire.” But Marnie Roberts is not easily daunted, and with subsequent seasons she and Matt were, bit by bit, establishing Clare Valley roots. In 2014 they bought a place in Blyth, established her own label, Matriarch & Rogue, and found enough wisely used time to bring about the birth of son, Oscar, the following year.

All smiles as Valley reaps rewards of a promising vintage A kind summer with perfect ripening conditions has Clare Valley winemakers brimming with confidence about the 0 vintage. It is tipped to be an exceptional one with high natural acidity and full lavour development. We’ll have to wait a few months to see what the critics say but the winemakers certainly have smiles on their faces. arly indications are the vintage has tremendous promise. Tractors, harvesters and trucks carting wine grapes have been a common sight in the Clare alley over the past two months as the annual crop of grapes was taken o f the vine. While the season started with good spring rains, very dry subsoils have resulted in yields that are still slightly down on average. The Clare alley Wine Grape Association reports yields are up on the past two years but would probably fall short of the 0-year average. Some growers are a little disappointed with the riesling yields which were lower than expected but this has been

compensated by red yields which were more solid than the previous couple of years. We are certainly dealing with a changing climate and continually adapting to get the best out of each season. Growers are learning all the time, trialling new tools and viticultural techni ues and technologies to improve their vineyard management. Some are also investigating what new varieties might be suited to the Clare alley in the future. We are starting to see a clutch of Mediterranean varieties emerging with great potential. It’s also been a uni ue vintage for many wineries and vineyards with no international cellar hands, winemakers or backpackers to pick grapes. usinesses have certainly had to be creative to find solutions. There is a growing interest in the Clare Valley wine region at the moment, from both tourists and consumers. So, we can’t wait for the release of the first 0 wines. If the lavours on the vine are anything to go by, we are certainly in for a treat. a a i r lar all i ra ia i

Limefinger ‘The Learnings’ Watervale Riesling 2020 $ 37.50

Wines by KT ‘ Peglidis Vineyard’ Watervale Riesling 2020 $38

They say old winemakers don’t retire, they just take longer lunches. That may well be true of local legend Neil Pike but those who have always admired his delicate touch with riesling are pleased he’s still keeping his hand in here. Abundant Watervale orals on the nose, a beautifully pure and crystalline palate crackling with bath salts and lime zest. A new classic.

This is a wine that celebrates the power of collaboration. Bunny and Yvonne Peglidis have worked one of Watervale’s best sites for more than 40 years and winemaker Kerri Thompson is the perfect person to tell the story of the site and their labours. This friendship, built on mutual admiration and respect, delivers a wine of piercing fruit purity, beguiling oral perfume and energetic acidity.

Mitchell Semillon 2016 $25

Koonowla Rosé 2020 $28

Semillon in Clare is like nude cycling. You don’t see much of it about but, once you try it, you just might be a convert for life. The Mitchells have always been believers - in semillon, that is - and this shows you why. It’s all beeswax and buttered crumpets, hints of clove, studded orange and lemon pith too. And it finishes long, talcy and fine.

Nick George is well aware that taking on a property like Koonowla requires the ability to look backwards and forwards at once. To give a historical property a bright future takes energy and effort and, in this ebullient rosé, you can already see this project has both in abundance. There are watermelon and rosehip aromatics, finely detailed te ture and a squeaky clean finish.

O’Leary Walker Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 $30 In cool vintages like 2017, Clare cabernet celebrates its finely etched detail and filigreed structure and few bring it to fruition with the skill and understanding of Nick Walker and David O’Leary. Sourced from two vineyards, one in Polish Hill River, the other in Armagh, this cassis-drenched, violet-strewn cabernet is perfectly balanced and immensely satisfying.

Ruddenklau ‘The Lone Kiwi’ 2018 $35

Grosset ‘Nereus’ Shiraz 2018 $51

Georges Mataro 2019 $32

When Tim Ruddenklau planted his Blockers Road vineyard, the market was telling him to plant shiraz but a wise old adviser with vineyards in the blood told him he was on cabernet country. So Tim listened to the dirt, not the dollars, and tasting this classy cabernet, with its deep set, dark berry fruit and a wave of fine, dusty tannin, will make you glad that he did.

This is a carefully considered, finely tuned and utterly intriguing expression of Clare shiraz. Who would expect anything less from effrey Grosset It’s a supple, sinewy wine, built on brambly fruit and subtle spice, with a judicious splash of nero d’avola running a thread of juicy energy right through it.

I’ve always said I’d like to see more mataro in Clare and this broody, brambly example from the Bass Hill vineyard just emphasises why. It’s a wine that offers up the variety’s typical dark fruit seduction with a side of savoury mystery. It’s a deep dive into deliciousness.

Barrys tartan it up Just what does a Barry wear under his kilt? We managed to find out during the famous wine family’s Easter promotional shoot which featured a brand new piece of essential Jim Barry Wines merchandise - the Barry Brothers boxer shorts. The “Don’t Get Caught Short” of im Barry wines campaign featured winery boss Peter arry and sons Tom and Sam at their irreverent best, clowning around in kilts in their shiraz vineyards.

“I’m really not sure what we were bloody doing out there,” Tom laughed. “ ut anyone who’s tried a bottle of the Barry Brothers shiraz cabernet will know where we got the inspiration for the shorts design.” The campaign draws on the winery’s Scottish connection, established way back in when Scottish sheep farmer Duncan Mc ae Wood sold his gra ing land to im arry. The 70-acre property has since become home to the famous Armagh Shira and Mc ae Wood shira .

Cheffing in the fast lane Words: Paul Dowling Pictures: Ethan Allen When Slate Restaurant’s new head chef Tristran Steele slides behind the wheel of his dream car, the pressures of a long day in a high-intensity kitchen slip quietly away. “I love my job,” says Steele. “But sometimes you need a break from food. And this fantastic car allows me to switch o f and focus on something else for a while. It’s a great release”. Steele’s dream car is a gleaming black, 2017 Holden VF, Series II, SSV Utility. With Holden production having ceased in Australia, it’s the last of its kind. And when its purring V8 engine glides into the Pikes Wines car park each morning, everyone knows the head chef has arrived. “I love owning that piece of history,” Steele said. “And ever since I got my licence when I was 16, I just wanted a big, black, V8 Ute. “I guess my absolute dream car would be a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. But in the realms of reality, I already have it.” Much more of a sports car than a workhorse, the car is the result of a lifelong passion for Supercars, inherited

Tristran shares a laugh with chef de partie, Yeonjin Kim. from his mechanic father, Stuart. “Dad loved Supercars. But the funny thing is he was always a Ford man and I grew up to be Holden. So, something went wrong,” Steele laughs. “There were some great bonding experiences for us watching the cars together. Nowadays our rivalry’s a bit

calmer than what it used to be. We had some big rows – normally when Bathurst was on.” Steele joined the multi-awardwinning Slate Restaurant in 2019 as Sous Chef. His impact has been profound, making his promotion to the Head Chef role an easy move to make for Pikes

managing director, Andrew Pike. “We have seen Trist’s leadership skills shine over the last 12 months,” Pike said. “His positive attitude and drive have been a significant part of the evolution and success of Slate. His transition to the head chef role has been seamless.”

Steele has almost as many car care products as cooking ingredients but it’s in the kitchen where he truly shines. “He’s just so organised,” says Pike. ‘He’s producing amazing food. And he’s always looking to innovate.” Earlier this year Slate earned a second successive coveted Chef’s Hat Award from the Australian Good Food Guide and Steele is excited by the challenge of further enhancing Slate’s reputation. “To be able to put my stamp on it is definitely a thrill,” he said. “We’re putting out really good food and the people who work with me have the same commitment to quality and standard as I do. We all enjoy coming to work.

“I like my food to be simple, not over complicated” “I like my food to be simple, not overcomplicated, but classy. And I like to use as much local produce as possible.” Steele’s love for cooking began as a child in his home kitchen, where he would spend the weekends with his mother and grandma baking cakes and cookies for school lunches for the week ahead. He learned his craft across a range of Adelaide restaurants and hotels before heading overseas in 2008 to expand his cooking knowledge. He worked at AA Rosette Restaurants in Northern Ireland and England and as head chef for a

couple of ski season tour operators in France, Switzerland and New Zealand. Back home, he found his way to Slate via The arossa Institution, istro and Grill in Tanunda and as Sous Chef at Seed Winehouse and Kitchen in Clare. “My style comes from my many years of travel,” he said. “With in luences from British, French, Modern European and

Modern Australian cooking.” Steele loves a good pasta and says he’s signature dish at Slate is the spinach pappardelle, with zucchini, rocket, tomato, olive crumb, pangritata and mascarpone. He’s enthusiasm for those ingredients is matched only by his love for the countless polishes and waxes he uses to

keep his car looking so immaculate. ‘Just like the kitchen, it all comes down to organisation,” he said. “Every week there’s a pre-wash, a wash and a dry, followed by a no-streak finish. “It’s quite an undertaking to keep it looking its best because it’s big and it’s black! A black car is always dirty. It’s a lot easier to keep a white car!”

isk-taking chef Guy Parkinson urges the Valley to believe in itself as he sows funky new Seed in the heart of Clare

S

eed supremo Guy Parkinson has thrown out a challenge to the Clare Valley community – cease all comparisons with the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale and embrace our extraordinary and rare region for what it is. Parkinson believes the Clare Valley has a wonderful opportunity to grow and prosper but he’s concerned constant comparisons with the other wine regions threaten to hold it back. “What’s frustrating for me …,” says Parkinson, “and I guess not being from Clare or South Australia means I can be a little more outspoken because I don’t have family or political ties here, is the

Words: Paul Dowling Pictures: John Krüger amount of times people have said to me ‘we’ll never be the Barossa’ or ‘we’ll never be McLaren Vale’. “That mindset just has to stop. “Clare is so unique and so wonderful in its own right.” Parkinson has made quite an impact on the township of Clare since arriving here from the Hunter Valley in 2014 and creating Seed Winehouse and Kitchen with then partner Candice Leighton. Seed, along with Terroir Auburn which

opened its doors in 2012, sparked change in the dining dynamic of the Valley and, having outgrown its original digs at the old 0s Cha f Mill, has relaunched in stunning fashion in the redeveloped Commonwealth Bank building in Clare’s main street. Thanks to the vision of local builder Sam MacDonald and the work of street artist EJ Zyla, what once was arguably the ugliest building in the street is perhaps now the most brilliant. Parkinson has, quite simply, fallen in love with Clare and is determined to help it realise its full potential. “We shouldn’t want to be the Barossa or McLaren Vale,” he said. “They’re great but they’re uni ue

to their own regions. Clare is unique because it’s the gateway to the Flinders Ranges. It’s the closest wine region to a desert in the world. That’s pretty cool. “When you come to Clare you have to stay an extra day or two because it’s that little bit further from Adelaide. And, when people stay longer, they’re dining in more venues, going to more wineries, they’re generally spending more money in the region. There might be less of them but I think they’re getting a better connection to what we’re doing here. “We don’t get many day trippers here and coming from the Hunter Valley I can say that day trippers aren’t always a great thing.

“Clare has to be confident. Why compare it with anywhere else ust be happy with what it is. It’s stunning. It’s gorgeous here.” Parkinson’s relationship with Candice hasn’t lasted the journey but they remain great mates and business partners. Their other partners in the Seed project are builder MacDonald and Pangkarra Foods’ Sam Maitland, with whom Candice is now engaged and has just given birth to their first son, Freddy Alexander Maitland. That Parkinson, Leighton and Maitland have maintained their friendships and strengthened their business ties through the period of personal upheaval, is uite admirable. “It’s an awesome thing and it’s probably spun this little town out uite a lot,” Parkinson says. “Candice and I moved here as business partners and life partners and we’re now still great mates and business partners. “My other business partner, Sam, is one of my best mates and happens to be engaged to Candice. They’ve just had a baby and I couldn’t be happier for them. It’s a very mature thing which freaks some people out. ut I think it’s actually made us stronger as a business unit and also stronger as mates. “It’s pretty un lappable. And I’m very

proud of it.” Maitland talks in reverential tones when describing how Parkinson has handled the situation. “He’s an incredible human, this fella,” Maitland said. “And he’s a pretty likeable chap. “I guess we all get along because we all have similar interests and aspirations, we all want to see good things happen here and those key drivers keep us close.” Parkinson chimes in: “They’re going to get married at Seed. And we’re going to give them a five per cent discount!” The long-term vision for Seed is to create a diverse venue for “everyone, every day” with a vibrant rooftop bar, ground loor bistro showcasing the cooking of Parkinson and head chef Louis itchie and a delicatessen Maitland hopes will end the need for alley residents to visit the central market when they’re in Adelaide. ut, for now, the focus is on May’s Gourmet Week when Seed will spill out on to the adjacent urton Street for its o ficial laneway launch party that will run from noon to midnight. There are also nights starring erri Thompson of Wines by T, renowned local wine scribe Nick yan and “For The Love of Italy”, an event where local winemakers producing Italian varietals will be invited to showcase their wines

alongside Italian in luenced foods. “I grew up in Clare,” says Maitland. “ ut having spent many years interstate and overseas I’ve had the opportunity to see a lot of people do some very cool things. “What Guy and Candice have done with Seed Winehouse and itchen is absolutely ama ing and being able to contribute to the growth and continuity of that is very cool and exciting. “Who wouldn’t want to be involved ”

No regrets for Rebecca as she forges…

A fabulous

GRANNY SKILLS: Rebecca with her nan, Pauline Tee.

In an age when things are moving forward at a rapid rate, Clare Valley couple Rebecca Sullivan and Damien Coulthard are making it their business not to forget the past. ebecca, tagged by The Australian as a “modern-day Mrs eeton”, after the English author of the 1861 culinary bible “Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management”, is founder and creator of the Granny Skills movement – a ‘back to basics’ sharing of skills and ideas around the home ‘just as Granny might have done’. Together with partner Damien, a high school teacher, they have also founded Warndu, an indigenous native food company embracing Damien’s rich Adnyamathanha culture from South Australia’s Flinders anges region. Between them, they have published seven recipe books, with the eighth already under way. Rebecca describes how their businesses were born almost out of “regret” and they’re determined to prevent their own 11-month-old son, Mallee, ever feeling the same way. “When my great-grandmother died at 100, I was living overseas at the time and had been working in food,” Rebecca said. “I was part of the slow food movement and in sustainability. “Mum had kept a box of my greatgrandmother’s and inside were these

certificates and it turned out that she was an award-winning baker in the 1930s but I’d never seen her cook. “By then, my nan had taken over the cooking-for-everyone role, and it really filled me with regret that I was working in food but had never seen my greatgrandmother cook this famous Victoria sponge. And I had never asked her any questions about her cooking. “It made me think that I couldn’t be the only person that had an immense regret around not spending time with my elders and that’s where the idea of the Granny Skills movement came from. “When I think about the most sustainable generation, for me it was my great-grandmother’s generation because they were frugal and it wasn’t because it was hipster or cool to be so, they had no choice but to eat local food, eat food in season and not waste food the way we do.” Rebecca began holding workshops, sharing some of her ideas about embracing everyday practices for a more sustainable future. Simple things, like free ing in-season fruits or left-overs and making stock from vegetables rather than throwing them out. “There are small things we can all do,”

food future she said. “I would rather see millions of people doing things imperfectly and making one or two changes that become a habit, than get 20 people to do things perfectly.” The idea for Warndu a retail food brand - came about from a similar awareness of the couple’s own mistakes. “After years of working in the local food movement, I realised I was a bit of a hypocrite and I didn’t really know the

“It’s reconciliation on a plate” meaning of local food when I met Damien eight years ago,” Rebecca said. “There were all these local native foods in my own backyard that I’d never tried, apart from the token piece of kangaroo when my French friends gave it to me. “We started Warndu when Damien’s Pop got dementia and we realised that a lot of his culture would be lost. Then, when his Pop passed away in 2014, we really actioned the idea, got a partner onboard and got our first products on the shelf.” Native thyme olive oil, wattle seed balsamic and six native teas formed the

initial range, with the brand now growing to include home and body products. Warndu meaning “good” in Adnyamathanha has partnered with Haigh’s Chocolates, adding to its native lavoured chocolate range a milk chocolate with finger lime and dark chocolate with Davidson plum. Having just completed a mammoth catering project at the recent Adelaide Festival, showcasing Warndu’s indigenous lavours, ebecca said the comfort of food was a great way to break down barriers. “Anything we can do to get these foods in front of people is great,” she said. “Food is a safe place for people. It’s a place where people aren’t afraid to ask questions and it breaks down some barriers. “It’s reconciliation on a plate. A place where people can learn about Aboriginal culture and environment, where they don’t feel silly asking questions.” Having lived and worked in the United Kingdom for 10 years, Rebecca has returned to the Mid North where she and Damien have a bold vision to make the Clare Valley a “native food bowl”. The ural Woman of the ear Awardfinalist hopes to encourage local farmers to integrate native foods into their traditional farming systems, introduce them to local schools and childcare centres and establish the family’s Armagh

Rebecca and partner Damien have founded an indigenous food company. property to champion indigenous foods and culture. “Clare is the gateway to the Flinders Ranges so we also see this as a huge tourism opportunity as well,” she said. Above all, Rebecca and Damien are focussed on creating a better future for their young son. “Even though juggling motherhood and work is hard, I’m creating this legacy for Mallee,” she said.

“He’s out with us, doing stu f and he will grow up seeing us create something special that I hope he’ll want to continue. “And if he doesn’t and he gets drafted to Port or wants to play classical piano, that’s also fine but really we’re doing it now for him and to protect his culture and make sure that it’s still around when he’s my age.” Warndu.com www.rebeccasullivan.com.au

Labour of love and enterprise

I

n a workshop in the side streets of Clare, a band of workers is busy manufacturing a high-end product that looks right at home in some of the world’s leading bottle shops. Its sta f are some of the happiest you will see, arriving each morning with a smile on their faces and ready to help showcase some of the Valley’s bestknown and premium wines. They are meticulous in their work but it’s the love for what they are doing that really shines through. Handcrafting wine display boxes is just one facet of Clare Valley Enterprises, a name that has become synonymous with quality workmanship since it began more than 0 years ago, as an o fshoot of the already-established Barossa Valley Enterprises. And there is far more to this busy enterprise than the products and services they o fer everything from making those display boxes to labelling, and manufacturing pallets as it provides a valuable service to its loyal workers. CVE branding and business relationship manager Kerry Hampel said Barossa and Clare Enterprises was established to provide employment opportunities for local people with disabilities. The benefits have been widereaching. “We have grown to become the largest employer of people with disability in

Bue Maher: “I love what I do.” “It has changed my life for the better, because I get to do fun things during my day and I get to meet new people,” he said. “I love what I do.” While Clare Valley Enterprises is expanding to cater for a broader range

Words: Gabrielle Hall If her first starring role in a feature film is anything to go by, little Lena Nankivell has a big future ahead. The Clare school girl, 7, last year won the hearts of viewers when she played the adorable Daisy in “A Sunburnt Christmas”. Lena had no formal acting training but, after producers fell in love with her natural talent and vivid expressions, they handed her the life-changing role alongside established Australian actors Daniel Henshall, Ling Tang Cooper and Sullivan Stapleton. In lounge rooms across Australia, Lena launched on to the small screen and there were no greater fans than her Clare Primary School friends.

Lights, camera, Lena! “My friends said that ‘A Sunburnt Christmas’ was really good,” Lena says. “They said that I was the funniest in the movie and the cutest. Some of my friends have seen the movie 30 times!” Since arriving at “A Sunburnt Christmas” auditions at the South Australian Film Corporation - dressed in pink and carrying a plush toy from the Clare op shop for luck - Lena’s been on a thrilling journey. Winning one of the child roles in the film ahead of more than 500 other young hopefuls was followed by four weeks of filming in the Adelaide Hills and

attending the ‘blue carpet’ première of the movie in Sydney. “I’ve now signed with an agent and auditioned for a few projects,” Lena says. “I’ve just learned I’ve won a role in a short film. I can’t say much about it just yet, but it’s really exciting.” Lena Nankivell of Clare, acting alongside co-star Daniel Henshall in A Sunburnt Christmas.

There’s plenty to do around Sevenhill. The Richardson Park Playspace (picture 1 adjacent page) is awesome for families or you can head up to Spring Gully and go for a hike through the beautiful national park. There are some great views and plenty of wildlife. Or you could spend the day riding or walking along the Riesling Trail.

The Rocks Reserve is a tranquil billabong about 15km to the east of Balaklava (picture 2). It’s a perfect picnic location in the winter and, if you’re lucky, there’s enough water to swim there in the summer. The Balaklava Golf Club, and Balaklava Racing Club both offer green outlooks in the summer, and cool beverages to quench your thirst. The Lions walking trail is a great place to watch the sun rise or set, while getting in your steps for the day.

There’s always something to do in Clare. Simply driving around the Valley you’ll see some fantastic sights, driving through Polish Hill River as the sun sets is just stunning. ou can’t beat a coffee in the main street and heading out to Gleeson Wetlands (picture 3) is great for a walk. Stop in and go for a ride on one of the Clare Valley Model Engineers trains.

Blyth is full of things to do. You can watch a movie at the Blyth Cinema (picture 4) or visit BDH Bites for something to eat and try one of their new escape rooms. Browse art and native plants at the Medika gallery or walk just down the road to Padnaindi reserve to see the 16 laser cut artworks.

Wedding flair It’s still love second time around Chelsea McPharlin married Ben McQueen twice – let us explain. They married first on Chelsea’s family’s Balaklava farm in a mad rush on March 25, 2020 when COVID border restrictions thwarted the couple’s grand wedding plans. An intimate affair with family was organised the same day, and due to the rush a handful of guests created a cavalcade drive-by because of number restrictions. It was nearly 12 months later that they sealed the deal for the second time celebrating with friends

and family at Auburn on February 27, 2021. Ben is the son of Iain and Christina McQueen from Minlaton. Chelsea is the daughter of Peter and Kirsti McPharlin of Balaklava. Chelsea and Ben are pictured above, and with her bridesmaids from left: Waverly Palmer, Rebecca Preston, Georgina Lampard, Chelsea McQueen, Katrina Price, Alice McPharlin, and Lacee McPharlin.

Faith Lutheran College is a representation of what a community can do when it puts its heart and soul into an idea. Wanting to provide another secondary school option for the region, local families, leaders and educators championed this idea. So, when the doors opened to students in 1985, after years of planning, fundraising and gaining support from local congregations, 29 students started in Year 8. Today the College is over 700 students from ELC through to Year 12 who travel from far and wide to receive a Faith education… and we are still inspired by ideas. Across the College, the curriculum is delivered in a way that makes our students inquire, challenge, think and reflect. Supported by caring and compassionate teaching staff, students learn by doing.
