Black & Ginger

Victoria | Great Western

Our Review

This is the venture of 2 friends who met in 2002 after attending the same high school. Hadyn Black is cellar hand and winemaker, working in the Great Western region. Darcy Naunton (ginger) is an entrepreneur in Melbourne. Their common interest in wine saw them take a great leap in 2015 and buy 1t of shiraz from the renowned Malakoff Vineyard in the Pyrenees, with further vintages following. Hadyn and partner Lucy Joyce purchased a rundown vineyard in Great Western in late ’16, naming the wine Lily’s Block after Hadyn’s mother, who did much of the pruning and picking but unfortunately passed away before tasting the wine.
