Peter Dawson and Tim James are friends and winemakers who worked together at Hardy's for 20 years from the late 1970s. Since then they have moved on to other companies and ventures, among them Dawson & James Wines.
Peter Dawson: 'We've always had high expectations and standards in terms of our appreciation of wine, and now we've pushed ourselves to make two wines that hold their own with the best in the world. We took the highest quality grapes from a vineyard in Glenora, Tasmania, and with minimal tweaking, have let the grapes do the work. The great satisfaction for me has been going back to a hands on, no compromise winemaking approach.'
Michele's notes: Sumptuous dark fruits, hints of game and alluringly silky texture with flavours that go on forever.
