2021 Rocky Ox GSM


A brand new bottling of one of our most popular wines has just hit the warehouse.

Grenache 69%, Shiraz 21%, Mataro 10%

A fruity, fleshy and well structured GSM that will be around for quite some time. Stronger flavours will work well with this wine due to its excellent tannin structure and flavour intensity.

“Beautifully ripe and complex, the bouquet shows dark plum, raspberry, olive and mixed spice
aromas, followed by a silky-smooth palate that’s juicy and rounded. The wine offers excellent fruit
purity with spicy nuances, finishing lingering and soothing. At its best: now to 2031.”

2022 Conejo Joven Tempranillo


GOLD MEDAL 2023 Alternative Variety Wine Show 2023!
Judges comments;

“Briary Fruit, red and crunchy, morish savoury tannin, long core fruit, acid”, “Pretty and lifted, spiced cherry, game meat and crushed herb. Lithe and bright palate with nice structure and fruit/savoury appeal. Good lift and glide here”


This is delightfully expressed on the nose, showing dark plum, olive, smoked game and toasted nut aromas. The palate delivers excellent weight and supple mouthfeel, wonderfully structured by loads of polished tannins finishing persistent and robust. This will be an excellent partner to rich savoury dishes. At its best: now to 2030. 93 Points.

2019 Rusty Mutt Original Shiraz


Our classic McLaren Vale Shiraz is back!

A monster of a wine! Strong flavours and tannins that have set up this wine for the long term. Aerate before serving, drink with some nice rich red meat and keep some in the winerack for a while!

“This is instantly appealing on the nose with dark fruit richness, smoked game, toasted spice and hazelnut aromas, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate offering succulent fruit flavours with plump mouthfeel and silky texture. Splendidly composed and expressed with a long delicious finish. At its best: now to 2032”

2014 Vermilion Bird Shiraz


Very different vintage conditions in 2014 have produced wonderfully intense, bright and concentrated fruit aromas and flavours in this wine. The fruit comes forward before even the brand new French oak which contained it for two and a half years. Once you see past the fruit, there’s a great tannin structure and ample acidity to bring it all together into a very intense, complex and long-lived Shiraz indeed.

An Elegant cool climate style with youthful purple hues, fresh dark fruit aromas and a tightly structured palate loaded with dark cherry and mulberry flavours. Needs more time! 5 Stars, Winestate Magazine.
