Ernest Allan was a market gardener and the grandfather of Melissa and Andrew Buttery.

This wine is literally Ernest - honest and true.

Winemaker's notes

Ernest Allan Rivers was a natural farmer and grandfather of Melissa Brown our Biodynamic Viticulturist. He understood the relationship between the earth and his plants so we have tried to encapsulate his philosophy in this wine. We selected several iconic Shiraz sites that were harvested by hand. These special parcels were all picked at full flavour maturity.
