This wine also reflects my relationship with one of the great vineyards of Australia.
About The Wine
This is a wine very close to Ben Haines' heart.
Three days after the birth of his first child, Ben picked the grapes that would eventually become this wine.
The fruit was grown on the famous Yeringberg vineyard, some of the Yarra Valley's most hallowed turf. Some whole bunches were used. A long sleep in bottle before release.
It's a particularly good release from Ben. One well and truly worthy of the 95 points it received from James Halliday.
