Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine.

Geoff Johnston is a winemaker with a world perspective. He is a graduate of the Charles Sturt University and studied in France where his strong interest in the classic Bordeaux varieties flourished. The comerstone philosophy is to produce wines from grapes grown to family vineyards, thus ensuring that the highest possible quality standards are met, and that the wines showcase the unique regional characteristics of McLaren Vale. A combination of high cordon trellis, hand pruning and idyllic growing conditions have produced grapes with bountiful flavours, ripe tannins and good acid balance. An extended maturation of twenty four months in American oaks has softened the wine and enhanced complexity.

The palate delivers briars and blackcurrants, red cherries complemented by toasty oak, all integrated with hints of pepper and blueberry, balanced by subtle toasted oak.
