“Our style is about fruit concentration and purity, muscle with refinement, and drive”
- Our Wines2016 Estate CabernetsDark red with a maroon coloured hue, dense and shiny. Blackberry, red currants and blueberry fruits lift from the glass. Notes of cassis, dried summer leaves, with hints of coffee and smoked meats. Aromatics move through onto the palate. The berry fruit is fresh and generous. Sitting comfortably and pedestalling the fruit through the length of the palate are complementary fine tannins and oak phenolics. A dark richness is enveloping, yet remains elegant and refined. Medium bodied, and well structured, this wine can be cellared for 8+ years.
- Our Wines2017 Estate Sauvignon BlancThis wine is bright and lively, both visually and aromatically. A very pale straw colour provides evidence of fermentation in barrel. A fermentation temperature of 18-21°C has provided a savoury undertone while the intensity and sweetness of the fruit shines. Zesty citrus lemon and lime fruits cut the cooler guava and white melon tropical fruits that fill the palate. Textured oak elements provide further layers of complexity. This wine while drinking well in its youth will provide further enjoyment in 3 to 5 years.
- Our Wines2016 Estate ShirazA deep and densely presenting wine. Dark red to maroon, with purple and magenta coloured hue. Rich black currant and blueberry fruits are defined in the aromatics. Lifted characters of dried oregano and tarragon intermingle, while undertones of dark plum and oak spices are brooding. Flowing onto the palate, the aromatics are all present in flavour and are tightly packed. The fruit sweetness is balanced, and reigned in somewhat, by a refined tannin structure producing an elegance and great persistence. Dark chocolate and toasted oak notes find their way through in the finish. A Shiraz of this standing will benefit cellaring for 10+ years, while still being enjoyable and rewarding in its youth.
- Our Wines2016 Estate SangioveseDusty reds and flecks of purple are evident in this savoury wine. Lifted aromatics of red cherry, cola and raspberry sit above a fresh acid structure. The mouthfeel is appealing as the sweetness of the fruits work in with the dill and olive. The firmness of the dusty tannins grip and carry the fruits before butterscotch and fruit sweetness re-emerge through the finish.
- Our Wines2018 Estate Pinot NoirVibrant ruby red with a purple hue. Perfumed dark and red cherries, integrated charry oak helps to lift the fruit, with hints of pomegranate and orange zest, interwoven with a faint layer of dried herbs and spices. The palate has layers of dark fruit, Japanese plum, red and black cherries, with a crunchy fresh minerality throughout. Oak plays a background, supportive role without ever being in the fore. The finish of the wine is soft silky, with ultra-fine chalky tannins.
- Our Wines2017 Estate ChardonnayBrilliant straw yellow with vibrant green highlights. Aromatics of pretty spring florals, are followed by peach, nectarine and flinty oak. As the wine opens up, hints of oyster shell, citrus and hazelnut follow. On the palate the wine has a delicate ‘lightness’ to it, but at the same time soft, creamy and generous mouthfeel. Pear, apple and peach are supported by balanced well integrated oak.The wine finishes long with fresh grapefruit, lemon and a spritz of minerality.
- Our Wines2011 Estate Methode Traditionnelle SparklingEach vineyard block component of this fine sparkling was harvested at its optimum fruit and acid balance suited to the style. A palette of Crunchy Apple, Citrus, Oyster shell, finished with a creamy elegance and a fine Mousse.

- Our Wines2010 Greenstone ‘Copper Block’ ShirazAn outstanding wine that effortlessly achieves power and intensity and reflects the greatest expression of the variety from our Heathcote site. This wine presents a very textural palate of ripe dark currants and plums, charcuterie and dark chocolate that flows seamlessly across the tongue, and has an exquisitely perfumed bouquet of savoury dark fruits and multi-spices. Layers of totally integrated, fine grained tannins give great length and a persistence. A balanced wine that will reward with a long life. James Halliday Wine Companion 2015 - 96 points
