Stephen Says

“Italian giggle juice! This is definitely a happy wine, and a variety Stephen has great hope for in our warm climate.”

Profile

On opening the tasting room filled with aromas of mulberry and ice-cream, what a treat! Cranberry soon gave a loud shout, then dirt roads, blue metal, and charcuterie. This is not a shy wine, like a brightly coloured, friendly, street hawker with a clove cigarette on an Indonesian island. No wonder it makes us laugh when we open it.
