Sarsaparilla Root | Cinnamon | Red Cherries
“After getting up at dawn o’clock I’m looking forward to wine o’clock tonight” – Anon
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.

”Pale light garnet color. Aromas and flavors of dried mulberry, eucalyptus, matcha, jasmine tea, ivory, and Italian hand
soap with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an interesting, medium-to-long molasses switchel and blackberry leaf finish. An unmistakably Australian pinot noir that rustles the hedge grove.”
