Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from complete annihilation. One of the smallest yielding blocks in the land, Moorooroo endures as one of the world's most illustrious vineyards... The fruit of vines established 1836»

Devilish thinking is not only encouraged, but celebrated at Devil's Lair. The Hidden Cave range is all about the established style of wines that Margaret River does best, cannily crafted with a slightly devilish twist. The viticultural team are charged each year, with the mission of assembling the finest Margaret River harvests to fashion articulate regional wines. Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are treated to a crush and term of cold soak, inoculated in controlled fermenters and vinified at closely managed temperatures. Upon completion of ferments and a course of malolactic, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
Rich purple with garnet hues. A nose that's instantly recognisable as Margaret River, cassis and cigar box notes, black and blue berries. A currant and brambleberry flavoured palate, fine elegant tannins are woven around a core of sweet black cherries and cassis. A wine that evolves in the glass as layers of fruit awaken. A lingering spice on the intensely aromatic, berry filled finish.
