thousand candles 2011
First bottling. A wine that split the judges. It started as a nervous whisper; a wine with no obvious peer that some found difficult to reference. We liked it from the start, and we like it even more now. It would be a cliche to call it a swan, but it is delicious with goose.
“There is no new Australian wine as daring as this Thousand Candles blend, reinventing the way wine is made for the sake of capturing the expression of a unique place, even in the vintage from hell. The result is impossibly silky, captivatingly exotic and hauntingly ethereal.” Tyson Stelzer – QANTAS – April 2013
