2019 Chardonnay  -  Price $25.00

I made this Chardonnay my way - picked early to preserve natural freshness. Gently pressed and fermented and aged six months in used French to give texture and just a subtle hint of oak.

Only fours barrels were made. The result is a refreshing Chardonnay with flavours of butterscotch, stone fruit and a hint of citrus.

2019 SAUVIGNON BLANC - Price $20.00

I drink it all the time because it's light, refreshing and flavoursome. This is Australian Sauvignon Blanc riper than it's NZ counterpart: with hints of peach and green apple. 


2019 PINOT GRIS - Price $22.50 (SOLD OUT)


2019 RIESLING - Price $22.50 (SOLD OUT)


2019 PET NAT RIESLING - Price 22.50 (SOLD OUT)


Rosé 

2019 ROSÉ  - MOUNT ALEXANDER & Ballarat  -  Price $25.00 

Handpicked fruit and barrel fermented with indigenous yeast. Only three barrels were made. A dry style, fruit-driven rosé - like the ones from the south of France. This wine is fresh and textured with flavours of cranberries and cherries.

2015 GRENACHE  -  HEATHCOTE  -  Price $27.50 

Grenache is such an interesting variety. Initially the wine could be confused with a Beaujolais: strawberries and banana lollies all over. However over time this wine has become a serious and complex wine. Sour Cherries and a hint of earthy “sous bois” notes. I love the lightness of Grenache and the freshness of flavours. A wine that will impress.

2017 CARMÉNÈRE  -  HEATHCOTE  -  Price 30.00

I fell in love with Carménère when working in Chile. The flavour and depth of the variety are phenomenal. When picked early you get a freshness and savoury note of capsicum. When picked ripe Carménère can be more powerful than Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage I got it right, the grapes were ripe without losing their savoury note. A wine full of black berries and elderberries also a hint of green peppercorn.


2018 GRANITE SHIRAZ -  MOUNT ALEXANDER  -  Price $27.50                                                                                         (BE QUICK ONLY 5 DOZEN LEFT)

Grown at 600 metre altitude on granitic soils: a great place for a slow and long maturation. Fermented with indigenous yeast, aged in French oak for 12 months. This wine is a great example of an Australian Shiraz from a cool region. Flavours of blueberries and brambles and a hint of allspice.

2018 BALLARAT SYRAH - BALLARAT - Price $30.00

Single vineyard Syrah from a vineyard near Clunes. The grapes where hand picked at the end of March, then fully de-stemmed and fermented using indigenous yeast. The wine was pressed in a wooden basket press and aged 12 months in French Barriques.

I love cool climate Syrah, flavours of cherries and savoury hint of sage and a little hint of oak.

2018 BDX II - MOUNT ALEXANDER & BALLARAT - Price $30.00 

Made with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Carmenere. Reflecting the traditional blend of the right bank. The Merlot is from a vineyard in Bendigo and is soft and generous. The Cabernet comes from Ballarat and adds spice and freshness, the Carmenere adds complexity and richness. It like magic mathematics 1+1+1 = 4.
