I’M GOING TO BE HONEST, WINEMAKING WAS NOT MY FIRST CHOICE OF CAREER - I’M A FRUSTRATED 5”7’ WANNABE POINT GUARD THAT HAD DREAMS OF MAKING IT AS A BASKETBALLER IN THE NBA. IF ONLY I WAS ANOTHER FOOT TALLER I KEPT TELLING MYSELF.

WHAT’S THIS GOT TO DO WITH WINE YOU ASK? I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO SPEND TIME IN THE USA AMONGST THE BASKETBALL CULTURE, SEE SOME GAMES, BUY SOME PIMPED OUT SHOES - BUT LIFE IN GENERAL SOMETIMES DELAYS THESE GOALS. IN 2015 I FINALLY GOT TO SPEND AN EXTENDED AMOUNT OF TIME ON AN AMAZING PROPERTY IN CALIFORNIA, RIGHT AMONGST THE SIERRA NEVADA RANGE. I HAVE TRAVELLED BACK EVERY YEAR SINCE AND HAVE COME TO KNOW THIS VINEYARD LIKE A SECOND HOME.

THIS SITE IS WELL AWAY FROM THE RAZZLE DAZZLE OF THE NAPA. EXPOSED LIMESTONE, 2,000 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL - A BIT FOREIGN TO MY BAROSSA HOME. SO I WAS ABLE TO GRAB A TONNE OF PINOT NOIR AND HAVE A BASH AT SOMETHING DIFFERENT. SO I KEPT IT SIMPLE - 100% WHOLE BUNCHES, FOOT STOMPED, LARGE OAK AGEING AND INTO BOTTLE.

SO I’VE BROUGHT BACK WITH ME A BIT OF A REMINDER OF MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME.
