Description

Adrian Santolin grew up in Griffith and has been in the wine industry since he was 15. Stints at various highly regarded wineries gave him the confidence to buy his own grapes and launch a label. Sourcing quality fruit allows Adrian to let the grapes do their own thing with only gentle guidance, the quality is outstanding.

Bright, rich, blood orange, sweet spices, floral. With a big mouthfeel and some firm tannins this is definitely marked by the region but it works well. Partner with goat or something similarly bold. Short term cellaring would not hurt this wine.

Heathcote

The glamour region of Victoria for lovers of big reds. And the core production is Shiraz and Cabernet with ‘guts’. But it is a region that offers a lot of diversity when you scratch the surface. The cooler southern parts border Macedon and make lovely aromatic wines. There is a lot of experimentation and adoption of more drought resistant Italian varieties to great effect too.

Nero d’Avola

Sicily’s boldest red grape. It is capable of getting very ripe, is very charming but can lack acidity. It is often blended with other varieties to balance out its exuberance.
