Red wine – we like it, you like it. Sometimes it’s really red, sometimes it’s less red. Sometimes it’s Barossa Valley Shiraz, sometimes Coonawarra Cabernet or McLaren Vale Grenache. New world, old world, weird and wonderful, traditional and cutting edge – if it’s red and it passed the Tasting Panel’s approval, it’s here.
A cracking new release from the new owners of this vineyard. A very deep colour, plenty of mulberry, blackberry and cedar. A gorgeous line of cinnamon too. Tannins are firm and fine. In a word, delicious.... Learn More

The first one scored 2 gold medals, this vintage has 3 golds already and we are confident its brag sheet will exceed the older brothers by the time it is done.

Still screams out to be paired equally well with chargrilled meat or wood oven... Learn More
This is black and packed with fine tannins, cedar, cassis, liquorice, blackberries and currants, chocolate, cigar box and spice all softened by a core of clotted cream. There’s enough assertively angular Cabernet acidity to leave each swallow a mouthwatering entreaty for a forkful of protein pleasure… braised suckling lamb, rare T-Bone or gourmet... Learn More
