Our notes


The Wine Front

This one from Little Creek.

Earthy and savoury, a bit dusty and quite autumnal, truffle and dark cherry with a bit of rugged tannin chiming in. It feels a bit grubby, albeit that sounds bad, but it isn’t, it’s just got this kind of washy, wild, brambly and undergrowth thing going on and the finish is tasting earth. Gritty in a way, muddy in a way. Savoury, let’s say. Has some mojo but of an ilk.

Producers notes

A love of wine, food and growing things eventually led us away from a vastly different background involving scuba gear. Our winery is situated in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills where we try to intervene as little as possible in the growing and making of our wines. We farm a number of small parcels in Basket Range, Forest Range, Norton Summit, Summertown and Ashton. We don’t like to define our styles or wine making techniques, we just make wine in the way we feel is right for the grapes and season and most importantly, with maximum drinkability and enjoyment in mind. We hope you enjoy.
