The Great Ron Shiraz
2016 ShirazBest Drinking
2017 – 2025
This wine is named after our beloved family patriarch, Ron Faulks, who sadly passed away shortly before his 96th birthday, on the day we finished handpicking our outstanding 2017 vintage of Shiraz.
Like our Great Ron, this wine has a strong, resilient character with a memorable finish. With a dark chocolate and toffee nose, it has velvety black plum and cherry flavours and a subtle apricot floral lift. Aged in American oak, the wine is both powerful and elegant. Made in limited quantities from selected parcels of fruit, this wine will reward careful cellaring.
The Newtown Farmer

The Tempranillo adds depth to sweet berry tones of Cabernet Franc and the well-developed tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon. This new blend is perfect for today’s bustling society – with a twist of rural calm. It stretches the boundaries of cool climate wines in the same way that we were stretched in our early days as the Newtown Farmers at Tallagandra Hill.
2018 RoséBest Drinking
2018 – 2020
Made from the Cabernet Franc grape, the wine is named after family matriarch Eva McAvoy, who is gentle of spirit, young of heart and robust of character.

The Prodigal Daughter
2017 VermentinoBest Drinking

2017 provided the perfect growing conditions in the Gundaroo district for this sophisticated white wine.
Originating in southern Italy, but with a strong Spanish influence, Vermentino offers vibrant cumquat and mandarin on the nose, and has characteristic wild herb and citrus flavours. Its fresh crisp acidity with gentle sweetness makes it a superb wine to drink on its own or with a variety of food. The Prodigal Daughter is named after Mary – the youngest of eight McAvoy children from a farming family in Ireland. Mary has brought her Celtic heritage and talents all the way to Tallagandra Hill. Serve slightly chilled.
2017 ViognierBest Drinking
2017 – 2019
The 2017 Viognier displays typical varietal notes of Apricot and Lychee.
The fruit was divided into parcels then fermented in both French oak and stainless steel tanks. The batches were then blended to produce a wine with subtle oak and fresh fruit flavours. It is designed to impress discerning guests who are looking for a white wine with a depth of character and sophistication on the palate. It is inspired by the international community who enrich our society. Serve slightly chilled.

The Favourite Son
2016 TempranilloBest Drinking
2017 – 2021
Tempranillo is proving to be ideally suited to the climate of Gundaroo in the Canberra region.
With its origins in Spain, this flamboyant variety produces rich, black grapes, leading to a wine of savoury character with rounded rich dark fruit flavours. It requires special attention in the vineyard with a longer ripening period than other varieties, leading to its status as The Favourite Son. Our Tempranillo is feisty yet balanced, just like our two favourite sons, Ben and Sam.
