What Australia does best! Aged in French oak barrels for 2 years, this is a elegant cool climate Shiraz, that will age well until 2025. Our aim is to make a complex sparkling Shiraz. Cool climate Shiraz works great as a sparkling, as the mint notes make it refreshing on hot days when you feel like a steak. The oak ages has given some nice Christmas cake complexity, but still with fresh blackcurrants and licorice.
Mount Gambier is the coolest region on the mainland of Australia, allowing flavours in the grapes to develop longer while still keeping their crispneess. This produces rich lemon and lime Chardonnay. A complexity of minerality, flavours and a long finish. "Strong aromas of ripe Fuji apples with a hint of citrus peel, great mousse, a good dose of sweetness on the front palate with liverly ripe apple flavours with just a trace of musk on the finish. Complex, unusual and yummy" Dan Traucki, Wine Writer 2019
"Friends are angels that lift you up when your wings have forgotten how to fly. Mnay people walk through your life, but true friends leave footprints in your heart." So raise your glass - here's to friends. You will taste crisp apple and gooseberry notes. Mount Gambier is even cooler than Marlborough in New Zealand, so the long growing period allows the grapes to develop an abundance of flavours.
