 This ‘vino rancio’ starts in 2009 with a rose from Heathcote syrah and mourvedre, matured in barrels . After a couple of years, a 56L french oak barrel is filled and sealed . It is toped up once a year with fresher wines . In 2016 we took out a portion of the wine(33L), which is called “saca” in Andalusia , bottled in 500mL unfiltered, no sulphites , and replaced by various mature wines , from viognier on skins to field blend white or mature rose . The solera system will continue with an annual “saca” at the summer solstice . 

The resulting wine is a variation between amontillado and vinsanto, with an amber colour, oxidative aromas of spice (vanilla), dry fruit(walnut), earthy , and a dry wine with a rich mouthfeel and long aromatics . 


This inaugural “saca” is 66 bottles of 500mL numbered, and is available for $66.00 each . Limit of 3 bottles per person .
