Classic, smooth, yet intense Barossa shiraz. Very bright black and red fruits along with dark chocolate and plums on what is a lush and inviting nose. There’s richness on the palate, depth of flavour and spice too.
Another remarkable bargain made by former maker of Grange and 2 time Jimmy Watson Winner Mike Farmilo.

The consistency of the Clare climate usually produces a good Cabernet Sauvignon. 2016 with a wet winter and mild summer takes the variety to a new level. Aged for 20 months in French Oak. Will cellar for at least 10-15 years.
Another fantastic wine from Monterra and former winemaker of Grange Mike Farmilo. Lots going on here with cherries, red apples, redcurrant, red liquorice, white pepper and herbs all in tow. It is unashamedly medium bodied and offers great intensity of fruit, savoury notes and excellent structure.
