As a surfer goes in search of the perfect wave as the sun rises over the ocean, in our Adelaide Hills vineyard our Dawn Patrol heads out to select whole bunches of the perfect Pinot Noir. This wine provides the epic ride we were waiting for!


We believe the crack of dawn is the perfect timing to capture the flavours we desire in this expressive variety. Sarsaparilla Root, Cinnamon and Red Cherries. Seasoned in French oak barriques and bottled without fining so that the true texture of the vineyard shines through.

Herbal aromas and flavours of alpine menthol mint, spicy blueberry chutney, and sarsaparilla with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, complex, medium- long finish imparting notes of honey roasted beets and nuts and chai. A complex and herbal pinot noir with enticing strokes of flavour nuances in a balanced approachable frame.”
