Ministry of Clouds

McLaren Vale 

Ministry of Clouds

Bernice Ong and Julian Forwood burst onto the scene just over 10 years ago with the launch of their label Ministry of Clouds. After a long history working for some of the Australian winemaking industry’s titans in sales and marketing, the pair set out to create modern takes on the classic varieties drawn from old vines in the fascinating region of McLaren Vale.

Over a decade on, McLaren Vale is still their heartland, where their reds are made with grapes from their own 11ha plot and other carefully selected, often ancient vines. A combined 30 years of experience in the Aussie wine industry, with much of that time spent in McLaren Vale, left Bernice and Julian with a wealth of knowledge of the intricacies of the geologically vast and diverse landscape that makes this region so unique. Their reds focus on the traditional varieties and ancient soils of McLaren Vale such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, and their desire to add whites to the collection takes them to the Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and Tasmania.

If super fresh whites are on the menu for the coming warmer months, look no further than the outstanding  Riesling and Picpoul. The riesling is classically styled - floral, crystalline and chalky, and the welcome addition of a lip smacking Picpoul, which has found a happy home in the Vale, adds a seaside infused white to the lineup, perfect for drinking with or pouring on oysters. This year’s pure and tightly wound chardonnay release is drawn from two different sites in the Adelaide Hills.

There’s a welcome lightness of touch to the reds. With an emphasis on early picking by hand, whole-berrry and whole-bunch ferments, relatively lengthy time on skins, and an oak regime that favours old and large vessels, the reds are an exercise in restraint and delicacy, yet they still offer depth of flavour and intensity in a pitch perfect mid weighted package.

Each wine they make is considered and thoughtful, full of charm and personality. The hallmarks of their wines are texture, balance and elegance, all of which are delivered in wines of tremendously good value.
