This vineyard was brought to light, in some respects, by Anton van Klopper of Lucy M fame, but here we have an interpretation from Gareth Belton.
Leaps out of the glass. Rosy and red cherry fruited, strawberry, poached rhubarb sweetness, watermelon granita and general freshness. Frisky and really bright, vibrant, satiny and cool. It slips along on silky tannins and a little puckering grip says something too. And deliciousness is high. Texture is amazing, almost that gossamer, ethereal thing going on. Length is phenomenal. Geez, this is outstanding, really.
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.
