THE WINES

Whistle Post  is our family’s wine label made from grapes sourced  from our two vineyards sites in Central and Southern Coonawarra. Coming from a grape growing background our wines  show true varietal character and  influence from our vineyards. Minimal intervention winemaking allows our vineyards to do the talking. This approach produces highly expressive fruit driven wines with a true sense of place.

THE RESERVE RANGE

2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Part of our limited release range, this Cabernet Sauvignon is made from the best available rows in our Coonawarra  vineyard.

Rich notes of dark fruit and subtle spice. Medium bodied palate of ripe plum and blackcurrant fruit cradled by traditional regional Coonawarra tannins.

  • 95 Points James Halliday rating

THE ESTATE RANGE

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

 

The Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety makes up over 50% of our vineyard. Being from Coonawarra we couldn’t have a winery without this in our range. This 2013 Cabernet has an attractive nose of blackcurrant and red fruits. It's soft full palate expresses sweet dark berry fruit with light oak flavours.

 

2017 Chardonnay

Making up over 25% of our vineyard area our 2017 Chardonnay is unoaked and has notes of white peach and lime. Flavours of yellow fruits, crème edges, citrus combine to give a long lingering finish

 

2015 Merlot

​This Merlot is a delicate full flavoured wine with a rich red currant colour supported by soft favours of small berry fruits and a hint of oak providing good length and balance.

 

2017 Rosé

This dry style Rosé is made using grapes in our McCrae vineyard. Cold soaked on grape skins for 72 hours gives this wine depth in flavour and an
underlying complexity. Aromas of strawberries and rose petals precede a palate rich in strawberries and cream characters with a crisp and refreshing finish.



 

 SMALL BATCH

2017 Cabernet Franc

Medium bodied Cabernet Franc with elegant texture and roundness. Flavours of ripe currants and sweet pepper combine with a subtle tannin structure and a smooth finish.
