Our Review

Dave and Jen Wright (co-owners with Fred and Sarah Howard) had a combined background of dentistry, art and a CSU viticultural degree when they moved from Adelaide to McLaren Flat to become vignerons. They inherited shiraz and grenache vines planted in the early '40s as a source for Château Reynella fortified wines, and their vineyards now include some of the oldest vines in the immediate district. Quality at one end, value-packed at the other. Exports to Canada, Singapore and Japan. -JAMES HALLIDAY
