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.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Sourced from the Yeringberg Vineyard, the vines planted ‘99, two ferments (both wild yeast), one whole berries, the other whole bunches, matured for 20 months in French barriques. Good colour; this is a wine of intensity that treads lightly, the acidity and freshness underpinning the fruit important to sophisticated winemaking." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
