A love of wine, food and growing things eventually led Gareth and Rainbo away from a vastly different background involving scuba gear and seaweed. Their winery is situated in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills where they try to intervene as little as possible in the growing and making of the wines. They farm a number of small parcels in Basket Range, Forest Range and Ashton. They don’t like to define their styles or wine making techniques, just make wine in the way they feel is right for the grapes and season and most importantly, with maximum drinkability and enjoyment in mind.
This is sunshine-in-a-glass Sauvignon from a new site in the bucolic setting of Summertown. Bursting with tropical notes it's the perfect wine to enjoy in the park.
