One of the varieties grown in our 13 Acre Block, it was planted as Merlot, but as it grew it looked and behaved differently, and after investigation it was found to be Cabernet Franc. Made only a few times since its planting in the 1980's, (when we have some spare),  this wine has the ability to age well (the 1998 is looking superb).

Our "House Block" is as it says, is planted beside the Best's homestead and produces some exceptional parcels of fruit. In the best years we take these parcels and make something a little special out of them. Picked earlier, these wines have great flavours and are made off dry to balance the wine, making a great all round style.

Pinot Meunier is among the oldest vines planted at our Concongella vineyard, dating back to 1868. Planted as Miller Burgundy, it was used to blend with other varieties until 1967, when Viv Thomson convinced his father to make a single varietal wine. That first single varietal vintage was so good, it's been made that way ever since and now has a cult following for the limited parcels that we release. Along with the historical Shiraz planted beside it, these wines show great balance, length and fruit breadth, with an ability to age exceeding well.

This wine is a representation of another facet of Riesling’s charms. Displaying complex aromatic honeyed richness with texture and acidity to balance, it is the ideal accompaniment to stinky creamy cheese.
