We love the people who make the journey to come and visit our cellar door in Coonawarra; they have Wanderlust. They are the daring explorer, the lover of life with tales of adventures and experiences from their many trips. This wine’s for you, intrepid travellers…
Decanting this wine for an hour will allow you to see the true depth of flavour, but also show you that this wine is almost unique at this price – in that it will get better over 10 years.
No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, and organically grown. The dense fruit and the soft tannins with allow this wine to age well until 2030.
“Slightly porty notes to the intense sweet cassis fruit nose and lovely blackcurrant juiciness on the warming palate with its fine tannins and as one judge described – “salivating acidity”.” – Winestate Magazine 2018

“Some pretty nifty winemaking decisions have been taken including the time to pick a wild ferment, half in new French Oak (other half in tank), both components undergoing mlf, this is an elegant wine with grapefruit to the fore, but leaving space for a white peach contribution.” James Halliday, 94 pointsDownload the The Marquise Chardonnay 2012 tasting notes .pdf
Ezra is the angel that encourages writers, and helps people open doors to their abilities and self expression.
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.”

The name ‘Angels Peak’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the lack of ‘peaks’ in the very flat Coonawarra. No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, and organically grown.
“This is a very good cabernet at the price; there is a welter of cassis-accented fruit, fine, persistent, tannins and well integrated oak. A serious bargain with excellent length.”

“Friends are angels that lift you up when your wings have forgotten how to fly. Many people walk through your life, but true friends leave footprints in your heart.” So raise your glass - here’s to friends.
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.
