He sold the business in late 2009 to Rob Dundon and Tom Adams, who together have amassed in excess of 50 years' experience in winemaking, viticulture and international sales. The wines, including shiraz and grenache, are sourced from dry-grown vines between 70 and 125 years old. Chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and gruner veltliner are sourced from the Adelaide Hills. Exports to the US, Canada, Switzerland, NZ, China and other markets across Asia.
