We’re absolutely thrilled with results from the Barossa Wine Show 2018. Ron has outdone himself picking up a Trophy for Museum Fortified for the second year in a row. Rare Tawny was crowned Best Museum Red Fortified. Last year saw Rare Semillon get a similar honour in the Best Museum White Fortified Class.
All entries from around the Barossa region were such high calibre, we’re proud to be among the same company. Congratulations to all other medal and trophy winners.

- Rare Frontignac = SILVER (yet to be released)
- 2018 Vintage Fortified Petit Verdot (baby VP – yet to be released) = BRONZE

See all results from the competition here.
Our?first ever Viognier wine was released soon after the 2012 harvest.?Ron made the conscious decision to keep it completely unwooded to capture the essence of the variety.
Viognier is?rather vigourous in the vineyard and seems to have taken well to our heavy/clay soils.
The ideal growing season showed in the vibrant fruit flavours.? Intensely fruity with peach, pineapple and quince ? a real fruit punch! Some viscosity on the palate helped to balance the crisp and steely finish.
It was so?immensely drinkable we decided to make a follow up from the 2013 vintage which will be released in November.
