Our 2015 Touriga Nacional is now available. This wine was recently featured in the Adelaide Advertiser's Top 100 Wines, and has been selected by Wine Australia to showcase the best of Australian wines in Shanghai for the traders dinner. It was successfully exhibited at the Gems of the Riverland tasting at the London Wine Fair earlier this year.

Touriga Nacional is a lovely complex wine of medium weight and moderate alcohol. It has intense aromas of cherry, spice, cinnamon and smokey small goods with a lingering sweet/sour and savoury finish. The wine benefits from being opened 15-20 minutes before service and may throw a crust from two years of age. We love Touriga Nacional with char-grilled quail, Asian style duck or sticky pork ribs.

Our 919 2013 Reserve Durif is now available. The 2013 vintage sits between the concentrated dense 2010 Durif and the juicy and luscious 2012 style, being inky, bold and rich. We estimate this wine could cellar to 2030 ~ if you can wait that long! The fresh berry and plum characteristics will gradually change towards deeper chocolate and coffee flavours from about 8 years of age. 

Take a look!
