"Love the simplicity of the winemaking here, and the results. 15% whole bunches added to the ferments, 8 days on skins then pressed to 2500l foudres for 11 months. Still bright, with a purple rim. Fresh black fruits, brown spices, a hint of twiggyness and fine chalky tannins. Great balance and interest here. Many could take a lesson."

"Just across the road from the Watervale cemetery, with headstones listing a district who’s who, is a block of 20 year old shiraz. These vines are really hitting their straps to produce elegant perfumed fruit from the valley’s cool micro climate.


 

An attractive crimson robe with purple tints leads you into fragrance of sage, oregano, hyssop, chocolate and cranberry."
