We met Bill not long after and made an immediate connection. He is one of those enviably interesting characters. For many years he was an engineer in India, playing polo in Leh on the highest polo field in the world; enjoying hunting, playing rugby and ocean racing. A true adventurer! He is someone who strives to do great things. We are lucky as he is now striving to grow great grapes.
This is our first ‘single vineyard’ Springbank. Its great concentration and bloody ferric character depicts the ironstone found embedded in the site’s red clay and the powerful tannins are typical of the Moorabool Valley.
