Petaluma Chardonnay

A fully flavoured, richly textured wine. White peach, nectarine and lemon-curd characteristics dominate, and crunchy ripe apple and grapefruit flavours complement the creamy, barrel-ferment complexity with its lightly smoky, toasty notes.

Bird in Hand Rosé

2018 Bird in Hand Rosé

Lifted strawberry, cherry blossom and musk aromas, this vibrant, salmon-pink rosé, sprung from the elegance of Adelaide Hills pinot noir, is here to remind you of the pleasures of life and its celebrations with loved ones. Smooth on the mid-palate, with a refreshing, dry and textural finish.

Ashton Hills Pinot Noir

2016 Ashton Hills Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir

A blend of four estate-grown clones, matured in new and used French oak. The colour shows distinct development, the palate likewise. But it’s a true manifestation of pinot noir a la Ashton Hills, with a mix of spicy/savoury fruit and fine-spun tannins.
