2016 Grapes of Wrath

Out of every event comes a story. This story begins with the destructive forces of nature and quickly moves to a tale of friendship and kindness.
Two weeks before our 2016 harvest, a hail-laden twister hit Bush Track Wines, decimating our crop, vineyard trellis and our home.
The next morning over thirty members of the Alpine Valleys community turned up to help. Offers of grapes and winemaking soon followed. The result is this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Durif – a testament to the pleasures of both giving and receiving.

Production Notes

Blend of petit verdot, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, durif and saperavi. Made from donated grapes (Beechworth/Alpine Valleys) after a hail storm devastated the crop.
