Macedon Pinot Noir (Straws Lane)
The Straws Lane vineyard was planted in 1987 and is situated on Mt Macedon at an altitude of 800m, one of the highest in the region. This wine is a delicate wine, typical of a Macedon cool climate Pinot Noir.
Glenrowan Shiraz (Old Vine Shiraz)
The grapes for this wine were sourced from a low yielding vineyard that was planted in 1919. Lots of black current and lots of French oak. We are so lucky to have access to some of the oldest vines in Australia.
The wine is full bodied, with a nose of plum pudding and earthy overtones. This wine is unfiltered with french oak playing a noticeable role in the background.
Sourced from a vineyard situated on the eastern side of Mt Camel on the red Cambrian soils of Colbinabbin. The resultant wine is medium bodied with lifted red fruit, pepper and spice.
