Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​Proudly from some of the most ancient soils on this earth - The Riverland, a complete underdog region that epitomizes what it is to craft fine wine on the edge. Rich red earth, sandy soils covering limestone. Challenging, avant-garde - and one of the most exciting wines we've crafted to date. This variety hails from the wild land of Sicily - or as some would know it, south of the border - effectively - another Italy.

We're intensely passionate about this variety and it's clear potential in the warm, sun-drenched spots of Australia. Farmed by Ashley Ratcliff - a truly visionary viticulturalist who knows the Riverland like the back of his hand. The insane water-efficiency of this variety (no water since flowering and across several heat waves), coupled with no additions in the vineyard or winery (save for a small component of SO2 at bottling) displays the potential for this variety to craft succulent, juicy, aromatic and supremely refreshing wine. One of our most gluggable/smashable wines."
