Is this a Pinot ‘gris’ style or Pinot ‘grigio’ style? The latter, dear reader, the latter. We deliberately pick the fruit at the lower end of its acceptable range to retain the quintessential crisp, light, fine qualities of both the variety & the region.
Knock, Knock. Who's there? Chardonnay. Chardonnay who? You know me. I'm THE classic white grape variety and I'm back with renewed interest and, believe it or not, popularity. Now you can fall in love with me... all over again.
We like our rosé fresh and lively - which is why it’s based on Sangiovese... famed for its crisp acidity and bright aromas and flavours. Floozie will no doubt make for a happier human race – or at least for a few select members who partake of this wine!
Sangiovese is a grape that has a lot going for it. However, if you really want to make this wine ‘sing’ it needs a little touching up with something else and in this vintage, that is a splash of Shiraz and Pinot Grigio. (91 Points)
Lazing around on the vine it's always the last to harvest; no variety mooches more than our Mataro. Luckily this loafer is no slouch in flavour and so always worth the wait.
Renowned as one of the world’s great red grapes, Cabernet arguably finds its greatest expression in the maritime climate of Bordeaux. McLaren Vale is warmer and drier, but shares those maritime conditions. (92 Points)
“Shiraz and McLaren Vale”. A famous pairing. But why the connection? Shiraz in McLaren Vale grows well, always ripens, and with correct vineyard management, produces wines of great depth, flavour and structure.
Every winery needs an attention seeking, exaggerated, overly emotional, dramatic, diva. Sometimes it’s the winemaker, sometimes the boss, or sometimes a family member! Fortunately not here, so we had to create one.
The Muscat grape has a unique flavour that once tried is never forgotten. It is probably the only grape that produces wine with the same aroma as the grape itself. Sweet Muscats have the flavours of raisins and oranges.
The Dark Arts is a range of wines from varieties that are not meant to go together, but work! They refuse to be part of the status quo; they are wine as art. Made off the grid in an unconventional style that is all about varietals in quirky combos.
