Our Wines

With fruit derived from our Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek vineyards, our wines reflect their sense of place. We grow varieties best suited to each region and sensitive farming and viticultural practices ensure the quality of every bottle.

2017 JOSEPH SHIRAZ MAGNUM

Small berries, low yields and open bunches characterise the Shiraz grown on Christo’s Paddock. These old vines produce grapes with great flavour intensity and richness, which are hand selected before being gently pressed. Once the fermentation was complete the wine was pressed into a combination of new (40%) and old French oak barrels, where it matured for 18 months. Expect red and black berries, licorice and dark chocolate with a toasty, savoury edge and soft round tannins providing great structure and length.

$124 per bottle
