In our Shiraz vineyard lives the Golden Orb spider. During the summer they catch vineyard pests, which is one reason why we haven’t used pesticides in the vineyard for over ten years.
What Australia does best! Aged in French oak barrel’s for 2 years, this is a elegant cool climate Shiraz, that will age well until 2025. Our aim is to make a complex sparkling Shiraz. Cool climate Shiraz works great as a sparkling, as the mint notes make it refreshing on hot days when you still want a steak. The oak age has given some nice Christmas cake complexity, but still with fresh blackcurrants and licorice.
Food match: Christmas turkey or braised chile-spiced short ribs with black beans
100% Coonawarra, South Australia

Part barrel ferment has given this cool climate wine layers of complexity, with guava, crisp pink lady apples and gooseberry notes.Mount Gambier is even cooler than Marlborough in New Zealand, so the long growing period allows the grapes to develop an abundance of flavours without losing the crisp freshness of a true cool-climate grape. This vineyard, and all our vineyards, only average four sprays per year for disease, using only organically certified products so as not to harm our delicate ecosystem. Download tasting notes PDF
No pesticides, and only 3 purely organic sprays for mildew prevention for the whole season. 100% new French oak barrels for 2 years, 0% residual sugar, and below organic levels of sulphur (89 parts per million only).“Yielded only 2.5 tonnes per ha; matured for 24 months in French hogsheads. A complex medium to full-bodied wine with interlocking streams of fruit, oak and tannins.” 93 Points - James Halliday Download tasting notes PDF
