The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists.

After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital.

Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir.

Cabernet and Merlot are sourced from the Schrapel family vineyards at Bethany and neighbouring sites along the Barossa foothills. The Bethany property is replete with vines, decades old, which are very low yielding and produce fruit of great intensity and flavour. The special microclimate of the foothills is reflected in the bright, dark cherry colour, enticingly fragrant aroma and full flavoured, harmonious palate. The powerful structure of Cabernet is complemented by the suppleness of Merlot, a style which can be enjoyed fully whilst young.

Traditional viticultural practices are applied, vines are hand pruned and often hand picked. Grapes from each vineyard are kept separate throughout the wine making process until assemblage. Vinified on skins in open fermenters at controlled temperatures between 22C and 28C for several days. After traditional pressing, the wine is transferred to American and French oak hogsheads. A malolactic culture is added early to induce secondary fermentation whilst in barrel. The wine is racked after settling and minimal sulphur is added, a critical factor for natural flavour development. Matured eighteen months prior to racking and the final assemblage.
Deep, black cherry colour. A complex bouquet displaying young vibrant fruit, lifted red berries with some overtones of oak and a slightly spiced nature. A palate of soft fine tannins and fresh red berry characters. The mouthfeel shows excellent textures, approachable and satisfying in its youth. Deeply flavoursome, gentle with overtones of light milky oak, a well balanced finish.
