One Chain Vineyards is one of the most successful ranges produced by Alliance Wine Australia. With a refreshed, stylish new look and crafted in a thoroughly modern fashion, One Chain Vineyards impresses us on quality and delivers on value, raising the bar on the Australian classics. The Imperial Measurement of One Chain, or 22 yards – the length of a cricket pitch – is a nod to sportsmanship of the past. You don’t need to be a connoisseur of the great game, however, to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of the Chardonnay and the bright red fruit and subtle oak of the Shiraz Cabernet.
Peter Leske, Giles Cooke and Fergal Tynan of Alliance Wine Australia are the masterminds behind the One Chain success. Peter has huge experience in many aspects of the Australian industry and was head winemaker for Nepenthe for 10 years. Giles and Fergal both have extensive backgrounds and immense passion for Australia, having tasted and travelled there for over 15 years apiece – bringing with them a tireless energy for twisting classic styles and importing ideas from their travels elsewhere. Drawing on this background, the trio works alongside growers and wineries to craft a range of seriously individual wines that are a true reflection of the people that made them and the land on which they were grown. They’re not looking for the mass-produced or the banal – they seek out fruit, land, people and ideas that inspire them and, in turn, inspire you.
