A small creek runs through our Estate, dividing the Old Hill and Old Paddock vineyards. An easterly facing slope provides a perfect home for our Tempranillo and Touriga vines, planted in 2014.

Red fruited and spicy, this elegant wine is built to drink in its youth. Perfect for a relaxed tapas dinner with friends.

"Low in alcohol, but it tastes remarkably ripe and juicy. Red and black berried flavours with saltbush, earth, woodsy spice and herbs. It carries a good lick of tannin but fruit never lets go of the steering wheel."
