THE STORY

Behind the name

Summer ’73 and a rusty bulldozer rumbled into life, signalling the end of “The colony” and a distinct lowering of the Coonawarra skyline.

For almost 90 years, families had flocked to Coonawarra to collect the bountiful fruits which grew on the famed red Terra Rossa soil. But as the favour of wine grew, the last fruit trees were felled and on a summer’s day in ’73, the last orchard was demolished.

The end of an era, the last of the blockers and the last Sunday drive.

THE STORY

Winemaking

Sourced from a selection of vineyards in the Coonawarra, South Australia.

Machine picked, the fruit was fermented on skins and pumped over twice daily to ensure maximum extraction of colour and flavour. Once dry the wine was pressed and pumped to new and used oak barrels to complete malo-lactic fermentation.

On completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked off lees and then transferred back to oak for 12 months of final barrel maturation.
