Wonderful full bodied wines, it's hard to pick a favourite. Really enjoyed the new Tempranillo and the recently released 2016 Shiraz today. If you don't walk out with a few bottles it must mean you forgot your wallet!

Go and see Tracy at the cellar door - she knows everything about the wines and loves a chat too. The best wine they produce is the best Shiraz we have ever tasted. It's amazing and the price is tempting! We will be back!

SENSATIONAL Wines, SENSATIONAL Service, and a SENSATIONAL Afternoon. Only tried about 4 wines as I was driving. The Sparkling Shiraz in my opinion was the standout and probably the best in Australia - SENSATIONAL.
