The dynamic Roman Bratasiuk runs one of the most quality-conscious Estates in South Australia. His love of the defined and complex wines of France’s best winemakers is mirrored in the balance and sophistication of the wines he produces. Everything is hand picked and yields are low, resulting in some remarkably concentrated wines that combine power and complexity. From Old Vines Grenache to Single Vineyard Chardonnay, the wines are as diverse as they are exciting.
Clare Valley is famed for its hilly topography and cooler temperatures. The best sites are of high elevation and protected from the full strength of the sun's rays. In fact, it is the combination of exposure and altitude that helps to retain freshness in the region's wines, alongside a wide diurnal range. Australia's best examples of Riesling often hail from the Clare Valley.
