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 Grenache and Sauvignon Blanc.
Our 2014 vintage of 'The Ratbag' Merlot has escaped! The new vintage 'Ratbag' displays plum characters supported by threads of rosemary and thyme. Add the perfume of the 2014 vintage and the famed ripe cherry notes and you have an alluring wine.
James Halliday - "Potent blackcurrant and bay leaf aromas lead into a full-bodied palate, tannins a positive feature adding a note to 'take me seriously'."
“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.
Goldilocks is as ever, not too heavy and not too light! Low in alcohol, with palate-friendly sweetness, balanced fresh acidity, and a little fizz. Pale pink with orange hints – and tiny bubbles, evidence of the spritz retained at bottling.
