Barossa Valley : Free your mind from stereotypes of the past, be willing to give things another go and imagine the beauty and subtlety that can be borne of an otherwise hostile environment. Not afraid to do the same ourselves, it's taken a second incarnation before we were convinced that we had captured the real beauty of the Barossa.
Drawing on fruit from Ebenezer, Kalimna and Koonunga regions of north west Barossa, we pick low yielding fruit on the way up rather than the way down. Wild, partial whole bunch ferments, gentle extraction and sensitive use of oak have resulted in a wine that is both complex and concentrated yet pleasingly light on its feet.
