James Halliday of the Australian Wine Companion describes the extraordinary Wendouree range as an "an iron fist in a velvet glove."
Here's a few interesting facts about Wendouree:
Wendouree itself has never made any comment about its wines!
Proprietors Tony and Lita Brady see themselves as custodians of a priceless treasure.
The wines are made from extremely low yielding and very old, unirrigated vines of Shiraz, Malbec, Mataro (Mourvèdre), and Cabernet Sauvignon, many of them growing on untrellised bush-vines.
The 1914 stone winery is very little changed since the day it was built, still housing its original equipment.
In recent years the wines have become more medium bodied but they still possess an extraordinary depth of flavour.
