Summary: If you have ever been in the middle of the joyous riot that erupts when Barca has beaten Real Madrid or sat and laughed at a bunch of yobbos elbowing each other out of the way running down a fenced street without a bull in sight you will understand what this wine is all about.
We both grew up on vineyards and after following various paths eventually it was to vineyards we returned. We met at Uni studying Viticulture, our eyes met over a petri dish swarming with saccharomyces, the rest is history. We planted our first vineyard ofRiesling,Shiraz and cabernet at Eden Valley in 1996, then in 2007 purchased the historical Shliebs Block at Vinevale. The Shliebs block is home to over 16 varieties with significant plantings of old vineShiraz,Grenache, Mataro, Semillon and Pedro Ximenes. There were also a few rows of Cinsault, red Semillon and Trousseau which we have since propagated to increase production of these treasures. Both vineyards are certified organic biodynamic since 2014.
