Orange produces medium weight shiraz, and proudly so. Our 2014 ‘Jack’s Lot’ is deep crimson, with red edges. Red fruits; liquorice; woodspice; plums and violets lead the aromatic charge. Sure-footed and agile – this is not built as a blockbuster – rather, a wine that seeks to tell a story rather than finish it. The palate reinforces the message – brightness, and red-fruit acidity allow the just ripe fruit to speak of the cool-climate. Absolute respect for fruit from the winemaker.
Lovely rich straw colour from centre to rim – it’s erudite and refined. It has a tease of citrus, and a hint of dried-herbs with fine ribs flowing from an acid spine.
Sourced from our two vineyards in Orange, this Sauvignon Blanc benefits from the ripeness and tropical notes from our home block at Griffin Rd (740m), and the thirst-slaking acidity generated of our newer vineyard at Wallace Lane (1000m).
Truly one of the world's most sought-after and collectible Australian wines. Full of chocolate, licorice, all spice and blackberry fruit with aromatics that go through to the back of your mouth.
Very deep opaque crimson in colour. A complex nose showing sweet, lifted aromas of red currants, plums, tobacco and violets with cedar, cigar box and anise notes. A great vintage, drink now to 2016.
With the rise of the “natural wine” movement, we were pleased to discover we’d been making this wine “that way” for years…with wild yeast , no additions and no clarification, this is a wine of energy and life.
Cranberries and BRIGHT red cherries – overtly aromatic, and compelling before it’s sipped.There’s no identity crisis here – unmistakable FRANC – the fruit sits proudly above all else.
