Tatiara District, SA
In the mid 1980’s Robert Hesketh and Mark Swann planted the first vines on the terra rossa over limestone soils in the Tatiara agricultural district in South Australia. Despite its remote location half (mezzo) way between Adelaide and Melbourne, the soil profile, availability of artesian water and warm dry climate made it the ideal place for the production of premium quality fruit.
Australia’s highest profile wine company liked the fruit so much that it bought the vineyard, and continue to use the wines anonymously in their expensive blends for mid palate weight and structure. We believe that this hidden gem of the Australian wine industry deserves better, and are proud to bring you these exciting wines to savour and enjoy, wearing their location, history and provenance proudly on their sleeve.
