2015 Shiraz

The 2015 Ben Haines Syrah from McLaren Vale was bottled early December 2016. Bio-dynamically farmed, I crafted this Mediterranean-climate wine as though it was a cool climate, Victorian Syrah (no doubt much to the disgust of local McLaren Vale producers). This is “Gateway” in the glass…. And it kicks ass.

The 2015 Ben Haines Nebbiolo from the Pyrenees will be bottled in February 2017. This naturally fermented parcel spent 383 days on skins, before being basket pressed to large old barrels with zero preservative. This one is on the way too.

I’ve always been drawn to the vineyard. I used to walk amongst the vines on my way to school growing up in country Victoria, kicking the dirt and smuggling huge bunches of flame seedless.
