James' Review

The two mates are MarkVenable and David Minear, who say,?Over a big drink in a small bar in Italy a few years back, we talked about making ?our perfect Australian Shiraz?. When we got back, we decided to have a go.' The wine ('05) was duly made, and won a silver medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London, in some exalted company.
