A unique blend of 4 varieties: 2019 Heathcote Tempranillo, 2019 Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir, 2020 Sunbury Shiraz & 2020 Goulburn Valley Rosé.
2019 Heathcote Tempranillo
A neat little parcel of fruit from Willoughby Bridge, Heathcote. Hand-picked in March, crushed and de-stemmed, and fermented in small open vessels for 10-days with twice-daily punch downs. Lightly pressed to ensure minimal astringent tannin, then aged in seasoned French oak. Flavoursome. Earthy plum.
2019 Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir
Handpicked and 100% whole bunch fermentation for 3 days, then de-stemmed to ensure not too much leafy green stem character. This crunchy, fresh Pinot Noir adds a delicate sweetness to the mid-palate.
2020 Sunbury Shiraz
Whole Shiraz bunches from a small family run site in Sunbury. The fruit is greatly influenced by the cooling winds that blow over the rolling hills during the growing season. Cold soaked, then carbonic maceration for 14 days. Lightly pressed and aged in seasoned oak. Chilled raspberries and soft tannins.
2020 Goulburn Valley Rosé
This handpicked fruit was pressed immediately to tank to enhance softness. Racked and inoculated, with the ferment lasting 10-days. Post ferment, the wine was transferred to barriques to enhance texture and body. Light, fresh, and delicate.

Crafted by Emily and Rob in the winery one day, we blended a few different varieties, wanting to create the ideal “Home Blend”. After multiple combinations, we settled on this one – a fun and easy drinking blend which integrates beautifully.
