The winery is located at the northern end of the Yarra and they are very much focused on the ecological impact of their wines. No fertilizers and pesticides; rather they use things like compost teas and seaweed extract. When wineries get this approach right, it not only helps their vineyards and the environment, but also the wines.

This is a deep, dark red, a broader style of Shiraz – one should say Syrah as that is how they dub it, and hence, one can expect a closer link to the wines of the Rhône, rather than typical New World styles. Exactly what we get. There are indeed characters of leather and animal skins here, dry herbs and spices, with some red fruits. The palate has a flick of chocolate emerging too so nice drinking from now to five years.
