The Label
From an original painting by Glenda Smith: an impression of the meandering Yarra river and its billabongs as they lay immediately to the North, between the vineyard and Christmas Hills. The work was inspired by an aerial survey photo of the area.
The back labels
We prefer to keep the back label blurb to a minimum. The only thing that really matters is whether or not you like the wine, not what flavours we imagine we can find in it. So apart from the statutory information - address, alcohol, volume and number of standard drinks - we tell you just a little about the vineyard and leave the rest to your own senses of smell and taste.
