Dusty the winery dog (kennel name Midnight Cowboy aka Dustin Hoffman) loves meeting people and he will escort you from your car to the cellar door. He loves to be admired and rabbits are his passion.
The 2015 Quatrain (our flagship wine) is now available. This magnificent wine is made from four of the Bordeaux grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Each grape variety builds on the other, resulting in mouth filling flavours that go on and on. $60 per bottle
The 2016 Pinot Noir was bottled just before Christmas 2016. It has cherry, strawberry and nutmeg flavours and is ideal with pork or duck or as a stand-alone drink. $30 per bottle
The 2016 Chardonnay is a fruit driven wine with citrus and peach flavours. This wine was 10% barrel ferment and the grapes are 50% non-irrigated fruit using Penfolds 58 clone. Try this with flathead (if you can afford the fish!), barramundi or scallops. $30 per bottle
*Current special $270 per dozen (25% off) no other discount applies
The 2016 Pinot Gris was aged in older French oak barrels on lees giving the wine delicate creamy texture. It has beautiful pear, lychee and citrus flavours and is great with shellfish and chicken dishes. $20 per bottle.
*All wines are 10% off by the dozen including mixed cases.
The 2005 Petit Verdot I kept half a pallet back to see how this wine would develop. 12 years later and it has matured magnificently. Only 12 dozen left so be quick. $80 per bottle. Bring this newsletter to taste this wine as well as the Quatrain for no tasting fee and to purchase the 05 Petit Verdot for $50 a bottle. No further discounts*
