This pack is the autumn '24 shipment of our curated wine club.*

If you love discovery and diversity in wine, this is the one for you, our winemaker's selection pack. Five delicious wines from us, plus one bottle that has inspired us along the way, that we aspire to be like or is so good it's downright unmissable - we bought some for our cellar and we just had to share some with you.

No doubt the best option is to buy this as an ongoing subscription, however, if it's just the one pack you are after - go ahead, pop it in your cart and get it on the way!

Autumn wines, 2024

2020 Alegro Abundantia Prosecco
Handpicked, fermented and aged on lees in tank this is not your typical churn-and-burn Prosecco - it is dry, with yellow grapefruit, green pear and a hint of savoury complexity. This is my fourth (and final!?!) label, which exists purely to give back to society, a way of contributing each year by outing people and the environment before profits.

2023 Alto! Alto!! Bianco, Trebbiano
Alto! Alto!! Bianco is the smallest volume wine I make, the hardest to get right and probably my favourite to drink. Early-picked Trebbiano forms the core, with a sprinkling of other central Italian varieties like Greco and Vermentino, and a splash of Riesling to close it out. Pithy lemon, pretty florals and plenty of texture.

2018 Vino Athlético Chardonnay
Here you get to see our lighter interpretation of Chardonnay, it's mostly from a higher vineyard on a sandy soil profile - and it shows. Aged completely in older oak, it has a generous palate and some creaminess to go along with yellow peach, grilled nuts and white grapefruit on the finish. It's a Chardonnay for those that don't love Chardonnay - be warned, you will be converted.

2022 Viñero Lancefield Pinot Noir
Another step forward in the evolution of this wine - I think this is not only the best I have made from this block, but the most delicious as well. Vintage can be uber stressful, maybe this wine reflects the ease of the beautiful autumn day when it was picked? Imbued with the spirit of barely skin-warming sun, bunches of pristine fruit practically leaping into the buckets and country bakery pies for lunch.

2013 Vino Athlético Shiraz
I hadn’t tasted this one for a few years and was blown away when I checked in on it for this pack. It has always been right on medium bodied, Shiraz for Pinot Noir lovers if you will, but it has fleshed out somewhat and now has more depth and mid-palate punch than it did as a young wine. Would be amazing with dry-aged duck!

2022 Flynn & Cooper Cabernet Sauvignon
My dad used to buy the original Flynn & Williams wines from this vineyard, so when I heard that young gun Josh Cooper and Tim Flynn (son of the original winemaker) had made a wine from it I got pretty excited – especially as it is probably a one-off. Fine boned, incredibly precise and showing some of the same vintage charm that makes my Lancefield Pinot such a joy to drink - maybe that is the calling card of 2022 in the Macedon Ranges? Drink now or keep for 15-20 years.
