David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness. The legacy of Eden Valley vineyards planted by Wynn in the 1960s & 1970s, incorporating significant old rootstock and extinct European clones, remains a bespoke choice for adherents of the abstruse, old guard in Australian..

Palliser's vineyards in Martinborough are trained to achieve low canopy densities whilst exposing the fruit to maximum amounts of sun. Combined with judicious leaf plucking, this produces the distinctive fruit flavours in the wine. Reliable dry autumns increase the intense flavours, and low cropping levels are the result of cool windy spring weather. When the grapes are judged to be at their optimum maturity, they are harvested and vinified to retain the inherent fruity qualities of the finest Sauvignon Blanc. A backbone of estate grown fruit is vinified, partially to native yeasts, in chilled fermenters alongside parcels from good local growers, followed by four months on sedimentery lees to build complexity.
Brilliant pale straw with light green hues. The bouquet is full, open and voluminous with fresh and powerful passionfruit aromas along with gooseberries, lime fruit and flinty minerals that blossom. Dry to taste, the palate has layers of rich, pungent passionfruit and grapefruit flavours with ripe capsicums and fresh herbs that fill the mouth. A fine textural thread provides line and length, leading to a soft, richly nuanced finish.
