Today we're excited to release two brand new wines into our 'Small Batch' series - a thought provoking Vermentino (Italy's most planted white grape), and a serious yet pretty, dry style Grenache Rosé. 

Our followers have loved our alternative varieties, think Vermentino, Sangiovese, Sagrantino to name a few. We've worked each year towards making a much drier style of Rosé, the style we want to drink. We are lucky that our home in McLaren Vale boasts a Mediterranean climate that provides us with the perfect growing conditions for these varieties, and enables us to produce fresh, vibrant and lively whites and Rose's with great acidity. Light in colour, they entice the eyes first.

A near perfect 2016 vintage in McLaren Vale gave us just another reason to introduce these two new wines, both packaged in high end Saver Glass bottles with a vino-seal, creating a sophisticated look and feel and the ability to reuse the bottles. These are serious wines that pair perfectly with subtle flavours, and the best use of the finest, fresh local produce.

As a valued mailing list member you are the first to have access to these two new wines, and we have put together a mixed six with complimentary shipping. We didn't make many, so I suggest you stock up for the festive season.
