  • A new project from brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd, Dune wines sees them step out from the shadow of Coriole wines. Sourcing fruit from a single vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of Mclaren Vale. Organic in conversion, this sandy vineyard has been completely re-imagined since being purchased by the brothers in 2009. Planting and grafting over southern Mediterranean varietals has seen them create a unique range of blends alongside some classic and so2 free shiraz. Whilst McLaren Vale is not a large region it is geologically diverse.

    The Empty Quarter is a Shiraz/ Mourvèdre/ Grenache/Touriga co-ferment.
