Richard Freebairn of Serafino fame assists in making the wines these days, while David Paxton, owner and pioneer in organic and biodynamic vineyard practice, is always close by:
Biodynamics is the most advanced form of organic farming. It uses natural preparations and composts to bring the soil and the vine into balance, resulting in exceptionally pure and expressive fruit. Healthy vines makes better wines.
If you're not convinced that great wine is grown, here's the proof.
A 65/35% blend, matured in French barriques. A shiraz grenache that only McLaren Vale can provide: complex, rich and layered, black and red fruits providing a mosaic of flavours on the medium+-bodied palate. The tannin and oak management can't be faulted - it's a lovely wine at a bargain basement price. 96 points, Wine Companion.
It’s a throaty expression of Shiraz Grenache... delivers 100% flavour. Blackberry and raspberry, some licorice and chocolate, leather and gamey aromas. It’s full bodied, saturated with flavour and fine grained tannins, feels aglow with alcohol, but holds it together and finishes long and savoury. Hearty wine. Best drunk young-ish, I’d say. 89 points, Gary Walsh, WineFront.
