Fresh, juicy, classical grigio, straight outta the Adelaide Hills. Sunny South Australia imbues this with lots of lovely fruity flavour, while the vineyard’s elevated perch guarantees cool nights and bright, clean acidity. Crisp apples and pears here, with a spritz of citrus and some comforting almond undertones.

Vinaceous is the gloriously graphic brain-child of Nick Stacey and Michael 'Kegs' Kerrigan. They're true winemaking negociants, sourcing grapes from some of their favourite regions, including McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Margaret River. This gives them the freedom to match the excitement of their wines to their vintage and mythology-inspired labels.
Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
