New wine label Silver Lining Wines is launching on July 1 with a commitment to donate proceeds to Parkinson’s Disease research.
Adelaide Hill’s vigneron Marty Edwards created the label after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2012.
After reflecting on his own skills and past experiences Mr Edwards drove the idea and creation of Silver Lining Wines.
“Each pursuit shares the same core philosophy: a commitment to being proactive and maintaining a focus on your goal,” he said.
“Creating a brand from fruit sourced from the Adelaide Hills and donating proceeds to Parkinson’s Research is not only achieving a personal goal, it’s helping others who are on this journey.”
The new-to-market brand will consist of three varietals all from the 2020 vintage.
A Sauvignon Blanc sourced from Hahndorf, Chardonnay from Macclesfield and a Shiraz from both Echunga and Macclesfield.
The 2020 Silver Lining Sauvignon Blanc is a classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc with bright grapefruit and lantana aromas.
On the palate, zesty lemon and lime combine with hints of tropical notes; a mouth-watering and refreshing wine to be enjoying as an aperitif or alongside fresh seafood.
The 2020 Silver Lining Chardonnay shows lifted aromatics of florals, citrus and white peach which extend onto the palate.
“The diversity of the Adelaide Hills and varieties defined by altitude, latitude and ancient soils are what I have grown up with and learnt to understand,” Mr Edwards said.
“These wines reflect the unique set of environmental influences experienced each season – a sense of place.”
Silver Lining Sauvignon Blanc and the Silver Lining Chardonnay are both available from July 1 2020.
