Grays Tasting Panel Review

Yuko Frost

Attractive red fruits like cherry aroma and spicy character on the nose. Grippy and textural tannin, cherry and raspberry on the palate again, savoury on the finish. 87 Points Yuko (MAY/2015)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

“Milner of Hahndorf” is a new range of wines produced by Chris and Jill Milner who own Kakaba Wines, a boutique wine company located in the historic town of Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills.

The Adelaide Hills has a brilliant climate for producing white varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Chardonnay, it also produces some excellent red varieties, elegant Shiraz, stunning Pinot Noir and in the right year beautiful rich Cabernet and Merlot. The Adelaide Hills is also gaining a reputation for alternative varietals like Sangiovese and Tempranillo which are coming soon to the “Milner of Hahndorf” range.

The “Milner of Hahndorf” wines are only made in small batches from grapes sourced exclusively from the cool climate Adelaide Hills. Over the last decade we have developed close relationships with a small number of growers, not only around Hahndorf, but across the Adelaide Hills. We work closely with them right through the season to ensure we get the best possible grapes. This allows us to produce wines which are distinctive, elegant and varietally typical.

“The Sculptor” label was inspired by the International Sculpture Symposium which is held bi-annually in Hahndorf. The symposium brings internationally acclaimed sculptors to Hahndorf and then lets them loose with the tools of their trade, to produce the most amazing sculptures, now prominently displayed in the towns and villages of the Adelaide Hills. I was struck by the many parallels between the art of the sculptor and the art of the winemaker. Just as the sculptor chips away at a block of stone, the winemaker carefully tends to his grapes in the vineyard and devotes all his skills in the winery to sculpting the best wine he can.

Our objective is to produce wines which have a sense of fun, varietal style and which offer great value for money and to that end we uses only the best grapes selected from carefully nurtured vineyards and our winemaker employs all his artistry to sculpt elegant, fruit driven wines, which we hope you enjoy.
