Overview

The name 'Strandlines' comes from the ancient shorelines or dunes that mark the retreating ocean from what is now the Naracoorte Range in Wrattonbully. These ancient dunes harbour the famed 'Terra Rossa' topsoil over Gambier limestone. The secret of these soils lies in the near perfect drainage they provide, leading to small crops of wonderfully concentrated fruit.

Expert Reviews

The bouquet offers an array of black fruits with undertones of spice and cedar; on the palate the wine has a degree of austerity, needing to loosen its grip somewhat, although this is not a tannin issue. Rating 93 - Drink by 2023 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2009)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

An intensely concentrated nose of dark berry fruits, chocolate and spicy oak complexity.

Palate

A serious full bodied blend of Cabernet and Shiraz, displaying ripe Cabernet flavours of cassis and blackberry integrated well with exotic spice and sweet mid palate fruit of Shiraz. This wine shows great depth, structure and texture providing an intense long finish and guaranteed longevity.
