About

The hits just keep on coming from Rhenn Dodd. In 2016, Rhenn was given access to a small parcel of Negroamaro fruit from the Chalmers block in Heathcote. He grabbed it with both hands. This is what happens when you combine the warm, ripe fruit of Heathcote with the gentle touch of a new wave producer. Balance. Finesse. A little 'X-Factor'. It's a compelling wine, with twists and turns galore for the drinker. A great look at this rarely seen variety flying solo from an Australian producer, and a great thing to drink. Only 80 dozen made.

What it Tastes Like

Wow. Nose explodes with flowers, purple jelly babies, meat, roast beetroot and a riot of spice. It sits on the plump side of medium bodied, but feels fresh and full of energy. Gorgeous silky palate trimmed with finely tucked in tannins. Sweet fruit keeps the beat for flavour, exotic Moroccan spices provide the accents. Gee this is great to drink.
