Our Review

In ’10, with the wine industry on its knees and a drought in full swing in Heathcote, Hugh and Michelle (Missy) Jones saw a dusty paddock running down to a dry Lake Cooper with a ‘for sale’ sign. The decision was obvious: buy. The ace in the hole was the irrigation water available to the property. New plantings of Rhône varietals such as grenache, grenache blanc, picpoul and marsanne were chosen for their heat and drought resistance. -JAMES HALLIDAY
