In the 1840s, a local Farmers & Stockholders Club was formed to bring together the farmers and merchants of the burgeoning colony. On their agenda were many interesting items ranging from high wage costs and improved cropping practices.Vines were a part of the make-up of the agricultural and horticultural pursuits of the district and to conclude Club meetings, wine was drunk to toast ‘prosperity to the region’.

On the Nose: A gorgeous shiraz, the instantly appealing bouquet shows blackberry, blueberry compote, mocha and cedar characters.
On the Palate: This wine is rich and generously loaded with red fruits, black cherry and spice on the palate.
