If we were to make a shortlist of the most sought out Australian producers in our cellars, cult legend Wendouree would undoubtedly take the crown. This celebrated range of wines come from the estate’s original 1893 plantings located on an easterly ridge of the Clare Valley. Unusual for modern Australian reds, these drops are not overripe or sappy. They’re for the long haul and sacrifice some early drinkability and seductive deliciousness for incredible future development – a wise investment.
