This one-acre vineyard can be found two kilometres from the McLaren Vale township. A property used for weddings, films, television commercials and even a visit by the Queen.
The vineyard is not organically certified but organic principles are being applied. This saw oak for 20 months. Caramel, a touch musty, scents of leather and church pew all rise up early. This settles on day two of tasting. Dark fruits muse throughout with Christmas cake spices to close. The acid is still quite pinchy though. A wine that just seems a bit all over the place. Perhaps a steak is needed by its side?
