ATTACKING MOVES: City Marians’s Lisa Richardson was in strong form on the weekend

West Devonport played City Marians in the first match.

Play ebbed and flowed from end to end for much of the contest.

City, with their experienced defence didn’t allow West to hold the ball in attack.With Jacqui McKeown controlling the centre West struggle to get their team work flowing.

Sarah Hill and Stacy Lyons worked hard in defence for West.

Lyons stopping a number of sharp shots at goal for her side.This was until midway through the first half when City’s Fenella Pinner found the net.

City held the lead until late in the half when Jacqui Johnson picked up a deflection and bypassed the City defence.

Similar play continued throughout the second half.

City’s Lisa Richardson had some good runs into attack with good support from Zayna Jackson and Zoe Groves.

Megan Clark was the focalpoint for West, distributing the ball through to her young attack.

But solid defence by both sides denied any further score.

Devonport and Burnie Baptist played a similar match with play concentrated through the middle.

One of the highlights was the contest betweenBaptist’s Cathryn Parke and Devonport’s Mandy Smith.

The teams were evenly matched.

Kym Corcoran and Belinda Oakley keptthe pressure on Baptist’s defence of Holly Johnson and Charlotte Vandenberg.

Meanwhile,Kennedy Parke and Sophie Johnstone created some fast moves into attack.

But they were coming up against the wall of Devonport defence in Narelle Nillsen and Rachael Martin.

While numerous opportunities were created in attack,neither side were able to capitalise.

Shots went wide and penalty corners were notgoing to plan.

Top drop is walking out winery cellar door

A new style of wine introduced to the region as part of the 25th vintage celebrations at Coolangatta Estate two years ago is proving so popular the South Coast winery can’t make enough.

In The Loop episode 7 featuring a story on Coolangatta EstateCellar door manager Ben Wallis said the first two vintages ofFrizzante sold out and early signs show the third vintage is already heading the same way.

Wine region taking off: Ben Bishop in the cellar door at Coolangatta Estate. Picture: Greg Ellis.

The Bishop family at the Shoalhaven Heads vineyard had spokenabout making a Frizzantefrom Savagnin grapes for years.They did that with the25th anniversary vintage in 2014 but then changed to use Rosethe nextyear.It proved equallypopular when bottled by thewinemakers at Tyrrells 12 months ago. So vigneron GregBishop decided to make it again during the 2016 harvest in February.This time with Tannat and Chambourcin grape varieties.The grapes were trucked to the Hunter the day they were pickedin early March and returned in the bottle two weeks later.

“It was bottled on April 1 and returned to the cellar door here at Shoalhaven Heads on April 8 and we sold four cases on Saturday April9. Thatis how popular it is.The quantity is only slightly more than we had from the 2015 harvest which sold out. We are bound by that restriction being Estate Grown still,” Mr Wallis said.

Estate Grown means Coolangatta only makes wine from grapes from the vineyard.

Frizzante is a lower-alcohol style sweet wine with bubbles but not as many as a sparkling wine.

Coolangatta Estate and Cambewarra Estate both madeFrizzante wines in 2014 to introduce somethingdifferent to wine enthusiasts in the region.Cambewarra made it usingChambourcin grapes.

Mr Wallis said people hadassociated theCoolangattaname with the dry white styles before but the Frizzanteand the Tannat red wine variety itself, when it wasintroduced in recent years, have both beenbig hits.

Frizzante is anItalian wine style meaning slightly effervescent.Mr Wallis described it as having “a little residual sweetness with a spritz that takes a little of the edge off”.

“I think the translation [offrizzante] is along the lines of little bubble.With a carbonated wine you see those bubbles in the glass where with this one you feel it more on the palate. But without that spritz it would be a lot sweeter again. It comes in at 5 per cent alcohol and that is pretty much to do with the winemaking method. The sweetness has come as a result of having the wine not fermented right out. So you have higher sugar and that means the alcohol content is lower as well,” he said.

Mr Wallis believesthe first two Frizzantes sold outbecause people want to try news things.He said it showed you can try something different and have it work. The reason the Frizzante style can come back so quicklyafter harvest is that it does not have to go through all the same process.“The style of wine is made to enjoy before the next vintage. It is a celebration of theharvest. It is made to be drunk straight away”.

FROM one who marched on Anzac Day, could I express my sincere thanks to the young children who lined the way, clapping and waving.

You gave so much joy to this old Digger.

R.M PAPPS, Port LincolnDisgusted with Anzac wreath disposalI AMwriting to you from theUK, I have seen messages on Facebook about your Anzac Day parade regarding the florals tributes.

I cannot believe that people have so little respect destroying wreaths that were laid by different organisations to say thank you to those who gave theirlives for their country.

To put them in a rubbish bin when the parade was hardly finished is absolutely disgusting. My son was one of those who laid a wreath and has fished it out of the rubbish bin with half of the flowers missing.

The people of Port Lincoln should be made aware of what has happened so as hopefully next Anzac Day it is not repeated.

Just felt I had to say something.We have had fivevisits to your country and have always had a great time.


Why were wreaths in a bin and not at memorial?I WOULD like to bring attention on my visit to the war memorial on the corner of Flinders Highway, Monday at 2pm.

After looking around, I was shocked, along with four ladies and a young child…we all asked the same question: ‘Why were five large fresh flower wreaths in the top of a large rubbish bin and not at the memorial until at least Tuesday?


Grey does well in fundingINreference to an article in this paper on April 19, Nick Xenophon and his candidate assert for Grey has been short changed on road funding. They should check the record.

While the Supplementary Road Funding package is an expired program, the increased money in the Roads to Recoveryand Blackspotprograms means Grey is getting more funding for local roads than it ever has.

I have worked hard to ensure Grey gets its fair share and comparisons with similar electorates show we have received up to double that of some marginal (including Coalition) and independently held seats.

Additionally, major capital works programs in Grey have been allocated almost $100 million since the Coalition came to office.

Port Lincoln has done extremely well with Commonwealth support including; the majority of funding for the Port Lincoln Hospital, millions of dollars for Port Lincoln Airport, the London Street Bridge renewal and St Joseph’s boarding house which will encourage Eyre Peninsula parents to send their children to Port Lincoln instead of Adelaide, Tunarama $94.5K, upgrade to Civic Hall $207K and the list goes on.

Grey is an enormous electorate and people should be wary of Senator Xenophon who pops in occasionally with his bevy of Adelaide journalists, says he will solve the problem and moves on as quickly as his camera pack, leaving communities wondering when he will spring into action.

With the record of Independents helping Labor form government, I would be surprised if people will risk opening the flood gates on boat arrivals, returning to a government of appalling economic mismanagement and the malignant programs like the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal that was intent on driving truck owner operators out of business.

Whitford makes his mark

FLYING: North Launceston captain Taylor Whitford during last year’s TSL grand final win. The 24-year-old has started season 2016 superbly. TAYLOR Whitford does not takeNorth Launceston ruckman Daniel Roozendaal for granted.

It is the Northern Bombers big man that skipper Whitford credits for his solid start to 2016.

Whitford, 24, was instrumental in leadinghis sideto a 35-point victory over highly-fancied contenders Burnie at the hostile West Park on Saturday.

His efforts earned himthree votes in the2016 TSL player of the year award –moving him into second place.

“DanielRoozendaal makes my game enjoyable and he has been fantastic in the past couple of weeks, he is the best big man in the competitionand when he is playing well it helps the midfield,”thePort Dalrymple teacher said.

“We’velost four or five leaders with Allan (O’Sign),Geoff (Mohr), Andrew (Cox-Goodyer),Ethan (Petterwood) leavingand it has been refreshinghaving young players like Tarryn Thomas, Ryan Choveaux and the likes come in –it’s been good.”

He said the win over the Dockerswas a fantastic result.

“It helps when you have 22 blokes playing their role and against Lauderdale last week you couldcount our best players on one hand,” Whitford said.

“There was a complete difference from last week to this week, which shows when you have the right mindset anything is possible.”

Whitford’s hard nut mateBrad Cox-Goodyer also received two votes.

Jack Gleeson got maximum votes in Clarence’s maiden win for 2016 over Devonport, while Aiden Grace (two votes) and former Adelaide forward Ian Callinan (one vote) were rewarded for effort.

At Windsor Park Lauderdale dominated Launceston withRyan Wiggins (five goals) claiming three votes,Rhys Sutton picked up two and Blues captain Sonny Whiting secured one for his four-goal performance.

Glenorchy starJaye Bowden extended his lead with top votes against Tigers to go with his eight-goal haul, which has rocketed him to sit alongside Devonport coach Mitch Thorp as the competition’shighest goalkicker.

SouthernMagpies Mitch Rainbird andBrayden Webb also jumped on the board.

Devonport’s Dylan Riley is tied with Burnie duo Zane Murphy and John Holland for third spot after five rounds.
