Hero Notes:

Unfortunately not something that you will likely find in any retail store outside of Australia, but this is definitely a wine you must have!  Nestled in a tiny hamlet of the Clare Valley, and first planted in 1892, Wendouree is presided over by a 100-year old stone winery whose contents and method has changed little since it was first built. Perhaps best described as ‘reluctant’ winemakers, Tony and Lita Brady have such profound respect and intuitive understanding for Wendouree, that rather than ‘make’ wine, they view their role as to guide the fruit from vineyard to bottle, with as little intervention as possible. We think that this is one of the most distinctive and important terroirs in Australia.
