We’re constantly scheming about rejuvenating our beautiful Murray wetlands too – for which the authorities have already chased us down an award! Enjoy with your last meal or in isolation.

Tasting Notes

This 2021 vintage saw cooler than average temperatures with gradual fruit ripening that enabled an elevation of fruit flavour and aromas with beautifully balanced fruit bursting with varietal flavour.

Our Morgan vineyard has an ideal climate to grow and ripen Grenache and Shiraz for this Australian classic blend. The balanced warm days and cool nights gives fruit ultimate ripening conditions. The red sandy loam overlying ancient sheet limestone enables water to be drawn away from vines, so the grape bunches and berries are of perfect size and flavour.

Expert Reviews

Charming and sweetly fruited, the inviting bouquet shows dark cherry, olive, mushroom and roasted nut characters, followed by a silky palate that's juicy and beautifully rounded. Fruit forward and flavoursome with a lengthy smooth finish. At its best: now to 2030.

– Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

It's sweet up front and it carries plenty of attractive perfume but, from about midway along the palate, it turns earthen and dry, in a good way. It's a
best-of-both-worlds wine: it attacks with ripe, almost port-like fruit flavour, but from there it turns on the manners, and the dryness, showing its more
savoury side.”
