The famed Evans Vineyard was planted in 1968 and lies in the heart of Coonawarra's famous Terra Rossa red clay over limestone soils. With free draining soils and the moderating influence of the cold Southern Ocean on the climate, the vineyard produces elegant and long-lived wines distinctive of the region.

”This spends 19 months aging in 100% French oak and it shows, revealing intense cedar, wood veneer and vanillan notes. That is part of the style, but it doesn't always work. Good fruit manages to seep through offering dark berries, currants and some briary notes. The fuller-bodied palate has savoury tannins with a decent grip yet drying on the finish. This will garner complexity in time.”
