About The Wine

Don Lewis and Narella King have made wine together for many years, both locally in Victoria and abroad in Spain.

They fell in love with Spanish and Italian varieties, and returned back home a decade ago determine to explore their potential on Victorian soil. In his review of the current vintage, Campbell Mattinson was pretty clear on his thoughts, "Yes. Buy. Drink. Don’t hesitate." in his 93 point review.

Sourced from their home region of Heathcote, this is a Sangio that packs a punch. Full flavoured and spicy to boot, after trying this wine it is easy to see why these guys are considered as one of the best value producers of Mediterranean varieties in the country.


Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Yes. Buy. Drink. Don’t hesitate. It’s fantastic drinking. Can’t recommend this highly enough. Beautiful fragrance, lively palate, some grip, some stretch. Cherry-plum, peanuts, leather and earth. Fresh. Ready to go now but will be good for a handful of years at least. One of those wines that just bursts from the glass." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Deliciously savoury, fruity and smoky, this is top shelf Australian Sangiovese. It’s bone dry with aromas of black liquorice and fennel introducing a palate that’s full of sweet cherries, pomegranate and bold tannins. It’s a red wine made for food and would partner especially well with barbecued lamb or pork fillet.
