A combination of two ferments, one 100% whole cluster and 100% destemmed, eight months in French oak barriques. Soft, sensuous aromatics - hibiscus, rose, lilly.

The cool, calm quiet of their winery shed that overlooks one of the steepest driveways in the Adelaide Hills, is nothing short of wondrous.
