I am a minimalist winemaker. My goal is to get the grapes into the bottle with as little manipulation as possible. I do not fine or filter my reds. I’ve found that the generally educated drinker is not afraid of a few tartrates in their wine. Time, patience persistence and good fruit will never be replaced with manipulative flavour adding techniques whilst I run my ship. A gentle long and ‘softly softly’ approach is essential when dealing with Barossa Shiraz. There is so much flavour that must be teased from the skins and a hard fast ferment is never going to capture all the subtleties only time can extract.


Bright yet deep red with a rich inviting purple core


Brilliant bright red raspberry up front over crunchy Sasuma plum interwoven around spice box complexity underpinned with savoury yeasty dark notes


Liltingly pure Shiraz in its natural environment bursts seductively over the palate playing ring-a-rosie with a fruit basket of red summer berries. Smooth and curvy like running your tongue along the duco of a super-car is the only way to describe the ridiculously smooth long lingering palate length with velvety soft tanning holding the whole show up.
