    2018 was a fairly textbook vintage in the Vale. A hot growing season, provided the perfect growing conditions for Grenache. The vineyard this wine came from on McMurtrie Rd, held on beautifully and was picked at 14 Baume, with lovely flavours and ripe tannins already present. It was crushed and fermented using wild yeast, in large open fermenters, and hand plunged 2-3 times a day. This led to the wine becoming nicely balanced between big and rich, and pretty/elegant in style. It was then matured in 20% 2 yr old French oak, and 80% seasoned oak until being bottled 15 months later. 4% McLaren Vale shiraz was added pre-bottling for a bit more structure and oomph.


    Deep purple in colour. Rich depth of tone.

    Purple fruits such as plum and dark cherry, mix with dark chocolate and toasty spice. A perfume of guava and jasmine lie in wait, followed by some secondary flavours of cherry cola.

    A richer, riper style than in previous vintages, but beautifully balanced. There’s some background cedary toastiness, confectionary characters such as toffee apple chews. As well as thyme/tarragon, melding with the ripe fruit flavours. The tannins are soft and grainy, with a slight tightness which indicates good cellaring potential. The wine lingers, as the finish keeps on keeping on.


Do your wines contain sulphur?

In short, yes. We use a tinsy bit so that we can ensure quality and enable your wine to age well, rather than spoil within a short timeframe like some 'natural' wines.

Are your wines organic?

We source our grapes from a number of different growers and some of them are certified organic, and some aren't.

How much does shipping cost?

Depends how much you're ordering and where you're shipping to. Generally speaking, the closer you are to Melbourne or Adelaide, the cheaper it will be. All shipping prices are calculated at the checkout, but order 12 or more bottles and receive free shipping.

Which restaurants / stores stock your wines?

It changes regularly but you're welcome to contact our distributors
