About The Wine

It was supposed to be Gamay that Jasper Button was grafting onto some established vines on a neighbouring vineyard in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills. Supposed to be...

But on closer inspection around vintage time, Anton Van Klopper thought the leaves suspiciously like those of a Bordeaux variety.

"Jasper, you sure that's Gamay you grafted over few a months back?" said Anton. "Coz that looks and tastes a lot like Cab Franc to me, mate."

"Whoops!" came the sheepish reply from Jasper. But it's turned out to be a happy mishap. The Cabernet Franc is just lovely - all pretty and perfumed and juicy as can be.

About Lucy M.

His colourful and idiosyncratic range attracts plenty of attention for its unique vibe and feel. These wines are made with no additions of any kind - they are raw, rugged and righteous.

Check out this perception altering range.

They will open up a new world for you, no doubt about it.
