Our Sparta vineyard was planted around 25 years ago on a north facing hillside on the western boundary of our property. The style is bright, rich and full bodied.
The vineyard is surrounded on all sides by Kalamata and Koroneiki olive trees that we process into table olives on the estate. There is a further Greek connection as the property was originally owned by a Greek family who originated from the countryside surrounding Sparta in Greece.

"Terra rossa soils the source. And they show, as a ferrous ingress of iodine and sweet earth, mingling with blue and darker fruit aspersions and the smoked meatiness of reductive handling and its floral lift. A rich wine with a modicum of restraint, tension and solid drinkability. 91 points"
