Wines released under the 'Terra Rossa' classification, are made from fruit that is grown exclusively on the rich red soils found in our vineyards at the southern end of Coonawarra. The micro-climate in this location provides an extended ripening period for the grapes, which imparts unique qualities in this range of wines. The combination of these elements, produces 'Terra Rossa' wines with wonderful fruit expression, elegance in structure, complexity and excellent cellaring potential.

Incredibly fine and smooth. It’s as if everything has been turned to high gloss. Peppermint, chocolate and ripe plum flavours flood the palate before extending comfortably out through the finish. Ripe, bright and substantial, it also has just enough underlying complexity to keep it from ever seeming simple.

A mouthful of shiraz out of Coonawarra.
Significant choc-mint aromas and flavours with a wealth of roasted plum and blackberry swooshing in to support. It makes a simple pitch – lots of dark fruit flavour with a good smear of oak – but has enough variety to its flavour to make it seem complex enough. It feels smooth, it tastes rich and it finishes the job on the finish.

A white pepper nose and bite on entry, it’s a wine that says g’day I’m here and gives pleasure all along its journey it also has the edge or bite along the route keeps it alive I really enjoyed drinking this.

In the zone. Mild-mannered. Fresh and fruit-driven with exactly the right amount of flavour. Plums, sweet oak, ground coffee, woodsmoke. Feels fleshy and fluid but tannin applies an appropriate tether. Highly drinkable. Juicy flavour extends delicious though the finish.
