Winemaker's Note: From the Hutton and Dalberti Blocks of Hyde Park’s vineyard in Great Western. Black olive, wild blueberry and tart plum fruits fill the palate. Aromas of smoked meat, white pepper, violets and dry dusty earth on the nose. This wine glides along the palate with ease and balance and bright energy. Modern framed Grampians shiraz with the regional hallmarks of spice and graphite. Long, layered and complex.
Always an inquisitive and enthusiastic drinker, Sierra Reed’s journey in wine began in New Zealand whilst filming with the Family of Twelve. Interviewing those leading families of New Zealand wine inspired her to change her life and begin the journey from drinker to maker.
A complete immersion in winemaking followed with a rapid succession of vintages as a global nomad in Paso Robles (Hearst Ranch Winery), the Yarra Valley (Domain Chandon), the Napa Valley (Piña), the Barossa Valley (Head Wines), Mornington Peninsula (Kooyong), Central Otago (Rippon), Beaujolais, France (Domain du Vissoux), the Grampians (Mount Langi Ghiran), the Napa Valley (Hunnicutt Winery), Barolo, Italy (E. Pira & Figli – Chiara Boschis) Geelong (Lethbridge Wines), Rheingau, Germany (Robert Weil) and Pfalz, Germany (Kohler Rupreckt).
The journey has left a series of lasting lessons, provided many inspirations and also created lifelong friendships. It led to Sierra making her first wines in February, 2015. Sierra hopes that you seek out her wines and that they bring you as much joy in the drinking as they have in the making.
