The two mates are Mark Venable 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. And they haven't looked back, sensibly keeping the volume at a level that guarantees a 'sold out' sign every year.
