Giaconda

Australian Winemaker of the Year 2003 - Gourmet Traveller Magazine
Top 10 World's Best White Wine Makers 2006 - Decanter Magazine
"Exceptional" (Chardonnay); "Excellent" (Warner Vineyard Shiraz) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV
5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

"These wines have a super-cult status and, given the tiny production, are extremely difficult to find; they are sold chiefly through restaurants and by mail order. All have a cosmopolitan edge befitting Rick Kinzbrunner's international winemaking experience. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are made in contrasting styles: the Chardonnay tight and reserved, the Pinot Noir more variable, but usually opulent and ripe." - James Halliday
