James Halliday 2021 Grenache Challenge
Handpicked fruit from our vineyard nestled above the Clarendon township, at one of the highest sites in the McLaren Vale wine region. We have been farming this site without any herbicide, insecticide or systemic chemicals and use Indian Runner Ducks to forage undervine, and sheep and alpacas grazing over winter. Gentle handling and winemaking has been utilized every step of the way.

2021 James Halliday Wine Companion
Gökotta (“yok-oota”) is the act of rising early to hear the birds sing. This wine is a nod to a blend typically seen from the southern Rhone Valley, utilising Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault grapes. Our version is hand-picked early in the season, early in the morning, and best enjoyed in it’s youth (hence the name).
Nero d’Avola is without a doubt one of the jewels in the Sicilian winemaking crown, with it’s dark berried characters and medium bodied nature. Our Nero is grown at a single vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley and hand picked at optimal flavour ripeness, with voluptuous tannins. A glass of this often spills over into a long lunch with mates on a sun-drenched afternoon.
