The Islander Estate Vineyards – Secure Order Form

★★★★★
Winery Region: Kangaroo Island, South Australia
The Islander Estate Vineyards was established by Bordeaux-based winemaker Jacques Lurton in 2000. After making wine in 25 wine regions across 10 countries around the world, Jacques selected a farm near Parndana, Kangaroo Island and planted a diverse vineyard in the schist and clay soils. Kangaroo Island is often described as "Australia's Galapagos" and is an island of immense natural beauty. Its rugged isolation provides an ecological haven for wildlife while the island's ample sunshine, offset by constant cooling maritime breezes, helps create an ideal environment for grape-growing. In the hands of a winemaker with Jacques Lurton's unique experience, the Parndana terroir has produced a range of wines consistently acclaimed for their restrained power and elegance.  More infoMore Information

Old Rowley - Shiraz/Grenache (RRP $35.00)
A blend of Shiraz & bush vine Grenache, Old Rowley displays elegance and is similar to a Cotes du Rhone style wine - medium to full-bodied with a good grip of natural acidity on the finish providing structure.

Wally White - Semillon (RRP $35.00)
Gleaming yellow-green, barrel fermented in French oak demi, but has in no way, shape or form lost finesse or freshness. The fruit & oak are seamlessly fused together, lemongrass & spice awaiting the arrival of a touch of honey down the track; it is the quality and balance of the soft acidity that holds the wine in the palm of its hand.
