  • TASTING NOTE: "For us this is a benchmark for Australian GSM. It has a savoury complexity that underlies it's bright, juicy, red berry fruit expression and long, supple tannin profile. There is so much good drinking here and it's not even $40!!" David Gillman, HWS
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Grenache sourced from 60+ year old bush vines planted in Blewitt Springs and Seaview sub-regions, McLaren Vale. Shiraz and Mourvèdre  is sourced from White’s Valley and Blewitt Springs. Vine age 20+ years. Cold soaked for 3-5 days. About 15% whole bunch (Grenache and Mourvèdre), some wild carbonic maceration, some foot treading, 9 to 40 days on skins in headed down open fermenters. Pressed to seasoned Burgundy coopered Hogsheads and Barriques. Matured for 9 months prior to blending and bottling. 55% Grenache, 25% Shiraz, 20% Mourvèdre.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Varney Wines began with just a "tonne for fun" for Alan Varney to play around with over a decade ago. He took his years of experience working at top South Australian wineries, including time spent at Orlando Wines, Longview Vineyard and over a decade as senior winemaker at d’Arenberg, and poured his skills into crafting a style of wine that he and his friends and family could enjoy. The side gig became a full-time obsession, leading to Alan purchasing a dilapidated property at the Gateway of McLaren Vale to house a tasting room alongside his wife Kathrin’s restaurant, Victor’s Place. A sustainable modern winery was built and their first commercial release was unveiled. The wines have been taking off ever since culminating with Varney being named James Halliday's Best New Winery in 2021.
