Glenn Becker’s dry grown bush block in Ebenezer is one of the true treasures of the Northern Barossa. A lost block of less than 2 acres planted generations ago. Traditionally farmed with no access to supplementary water, highly exposed and subject to frost more years than most. The vineyard is a true reflection of Glenn and his personality. It is unique and the wine that results in years where we get a crop is of such quality that when the conditions allow, we bottle a small volume as a Vineyard Series. 2018 was one such year, brilliant weather, high quality, and for the block, and amazing volume of fruit.

 Hand picked late in the season at low baume, the fruit was destemmed before being transferred to a ceramic egg for fermentation prior to spending a few months in an older French puncheon.
