Fraser McKinley, an ex-pat Kiwi who came to these shores about 10 years ago with no winemaking experience, honed his craft at Barossa icons Torbreck, Massena and Standish and in 2006 managed to convince Adrian Hoffman, owner of the renowned Dallwitz vineyard, to lease him four rows,one-third of a hectare of Shiraz.
Fraser managed these vines organically, eschewing the usual sprays for a more natural approach, and after several years the results spoke for themselves.
Fraser usually produces two wines each year, from these leased vines (planted in 1995 and 1996) as well as small parcels of older vines - some more than 100 years of age - from the Dallwitz and occasionally other Barossa sites. These wines are truly unique, idiosyncratic, and genuinely rare.
