7th & 8th December 2013 Christmas Special - All your gifts taken care of – Guy always puts something special on the list for Christmas and I’m sure this year will be no different. Relax from the madness of Christmas shopping with a glass of wine and a complimentary cheese platter when you purchase a bottle of wine to enjoy on site.
Our Latest News Ben Thomas Reviews the Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011 The Weekly Review 4 ½ / 5 Edgy, cool-climate Shiraz may not be to everyone’s taste, but here’s a good example. Only 150 cases of this wine, which was matured in 50 per cent new oak, were made. Perfumed and funky, cherry, redcurrant, stalky, sappy, meaty aromas are a delight. A silky smooth texture – it’s satin-like – bright acid and fine tannins support sweet and sour flavours of cherry, beetroot, cranberry, loam and spice. For the record, this is a style I love. Food match Chateaubriand
Our next open weekend – 5th & 6th October Will celebrate Shiraz at Wedgetail
The Young or The Old? - Cool Climate Shiraz taste off!
Some years back, James Halliday wrote of our 2006 Single vineyard Shiraz, “Fragrant, spicy light – bodied cool – grown shiraz – might well surprise with its longevity” Now that the wine is 7 years old, we thought it fitting to contrast this wine with our more recent 2010 release.
This weekend only, Guy will open both the 2006 and 2010, offering the rare opportunity to sample and compare a museum wine with its contemporary. Then savour these wines with a Prosciutto and Grilled Chevre platter, served with a rocket and pear salade.

Magic occurs in bottles like it does around people. In this case naturally forming bubbles gather in a bottle of chardonnay forming a bunch of grapes, the molecular expression was stronger than the physical composition.
