2023 Paperwasp Chardonnay

‘The Dance of the Paper Wasp’ is familiar to many a backpacker during harvest in this vineyard. These wasps love to nest in the canopy of our vines at the exact time of hand harvesting. 


2023 Usher Tinkler Shiraz Pinot

A blend of 70% Shady Pines Shiraz and 30% Hill Pinot Noir fruit. The wine underwent whole berry fermentation with gentle handling before maturing in old French oak for 3 months. The gentle winemaking helped give soft tannins and enhance the flavours of cherry, plum, and mulberry. 


2022 Reserve Chardonnay

Produced from the ‘Fence Block’ planted in 1981 by the Tinkler family. This chardonnay was fermented in barrel with a mix of wild and cultured yeast, before being left to mature for 6 months in a mix of new and used French Oak. The wine shows characters of ripe melon and lemon, with a hint of French oak and complexity.

Drinking now and cellaring for 6+ years. 


2022 Reserve Shiraz

Barrel selection from the Shady Pines, Forbidden, & 1948 Lindeman’s vineyards, this Shiraz was fermented as whole berries before being pressed into 500L French oak barrels. The wine was then left to mature in a mix of new and used oak for 10 months. The result is a full-bodied Shiraz with lifted aromas of white pepper, black mulberries and vanillan oak.

Cellaring for 10-15+ years
