Expert Reviews

Bright colour; a little dried leaf, herbal edge to the bouquet, with plummy fruit in support; quite focused and big boned, with a juicy fruited, yet savoury, finish.

Rating: 89, Drink By: 2013 - James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion (10 March 2009)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

“What constituted a lane, I suppose, was a large encampment of German emigrants who had pitched their tents in a parallel line on the opposite side of the row. They were recent arrivals from Germany by the ships ZEBRA and PRINCE GEORGE, and were the pioneers and founders of the little rural hamlet of Hahndorf.”

Extract from the ‘Adelaide Observer’ September 1, 1888. Vision and conviction nurture innovation. Greatness and character rise from adversity. The Adelaide Hills were settled by pioneers with great foresight and faith. The cool climate and high altitude of the region produce intensely flavoured and finely structured fruit.
