The husband and wife team of Brendan and Laura Carter are the minds behind this relatively new wine label that is based in the Adelaide Hills but draws its fruit from as far away as the Riverland and Clare Valley. Fiano and Nero d'Avola come from the Riverland, where the Carters say they can achieve economically viable crops from those varieties without much (if any) irrigation. The Piemontese varieties come from the Polish Hill River section of Clare Valley, the Nebbiolo from a vineyard originally planted by Penfolds in 1990. These are fun, engaging wines meant to be consumed in their youth, with the focus largely on fruit quality.

Greco is a grape that’s growing on us and we’re thrilled there is a little bit more to play around with of late. As always, the best thing about this Greco is the phenolic grip, so we’ve dialled up the skin contact a bit more this year. Bright orange peel, yellow peach and a subtly integrated oxidative character in the background that has shades of Oloroso to it. It’s awesome to have a wine like this in the sheds. Lovely furry, green apple tannins and an awesome blood orange tang with a spritzy acidity. Maybe the best amber wine we’ve made yet - sorry Esoterico heads - but this feels like some of the great Italian benchmarks. Stoked!
