Our Review

A little over 20ha of vines have been established on the undulating, gum tree–studded countryside of Charlie and Julie Downer’s 60yo Erika property, 4km east of Oakbank. In descending order of importance, the varieties planted are sauvignon blanc, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. Son Michael, with a bachelor of oenology degree from the University of Adelaide, is winemaker. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, the UAE, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Singapore. -JAMES HALLIDAY
