The definitive guide to Australian Wines
After 20 years living and working in Coonawarra,Tim (and Lucille) Bailey decided to take a busman's holiday by establishing their own small wine business. Tim's day job is winemaker at Leconfield, but he has also worked in the Sonoma Valley of California, and travelled through the Napa Valley as well as France. Tim and Lucille say they have a simple philosophy: ?Find great growers in the regions we love and let the vineyard shine through in the bottle.' Thus they sourced Clare Valley riesling and Grampians shiraz in 2016, and Adelaide Hills chardonnay and Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon for '17.
