Tasting Notes:

En primeur or "wine futures", is a method of purchasing wines early while the wine (a vintage) is still in the cellar. This offers the customer the opportunity to secure their stocks before the wine is disgorged . Payment is made at an early stage, prior to the official release of a vintage.   Delivery last week of November 2017

Weaving along the garden path, the hunt is always on.  Lost in the flora you may find her, in-between the offbeat pots.  Tending to everything from topiary to mowing the front lawn; the search can be a long one, under the beating Fleurieu sun.  But you can rest assured, she will always leave small clues; scribbled on cut-up envelope, even hidden in your food.  When you finally find her, there will be a sweet reward; for Marjorie is a flower - a crown our family proudly adorns.

Vintage Notes:

Marjorie Oliver (nee Hunt) is our grandmother and family matriarch. This wine was inspired by her amazing ability to make us all feel so loved. She kept us fed, looked after us when sick, never forgets the hot water bottle, irons our undies, mends and knits us socks, collects flowers and feathers, and is forever writing us little notes cut out of the back of old envelopes with pinking shears. Every time we pop a bottle, we celebrate everything she is.
