Winery/Brand: Temple Bruer


“Hay stack” Chardonnay Semillon is reminiscent of fresh cut-hay struck by the spring sun, drying in the field, the smell of hay lifts as the stack is bundled, a reminder of family, prosperity and connection to the past. Aromas of toasted cashews and preserved lemons show with hints of brie. The palate shows apricot nectar like qualities, pineapple acidity and a slight grip of texture. A complex wine with bottle aged toast and medium length of flavour.



The Story

Wines bursting with flavour that are good for you and our environment, this is the essence of Temple Bruer. Certified since the early1990’s we grow fruit and craft our wines without using synthetic herbicides, fertilisers or pesticides. With a strong desire to look after the environment our company has also become carbon neutral, sequestering all the carbon dioxide released during the growth, winemaking and transport of these wines.

Temple Bruer was founded back in the 1970’s on the banks of the Angas River (Langhorne Creek, South Australia). From these early beginnings, the company now cares for three vineyards throughout South Australia including the iconic Eden Valley adding to a rich diversity of organic wines, styles and flavours we bring to you.

The Templar Knights

The founder of Temple Bruer wines (David Bruer) has an ancestral link back to the Knights Templar.

Some history of the Knights Templar:

The Templar Knights developed a reputation as fierce warriors during battles of the Crusades, driven by religious reasons and forbidden from retreating unless vastly outnumbered. They adopted their distinctive uniform – white tunics with an eight-pointed blood-red cross. Some of the first knights were Hugues de Payens, Godfrey de Saint-Omer, André de Montbard, and Hugh Count of Champagne.
