According to J. Gladstone the Biological Effective Degree Days (BEDD) – where you add all the temperatures of the growing season together – of the top sub region of Burgundy is 1242. Mount Gambier’s BEDD is 1245, making it the closest to - the most famous French Pinot Noir region - Burgundy that we have in Australia. Est. 1883, the Cape Banks Lighthouse is a significant orange monument standing as a sentinel on South Australia’s rugged South East coastline. The lighthouse’s powerful lamps shine shafts of warning light across the wild Southern Ocean, offering protection for passing vessels from treacherous hidden reefs.
We are very proud of our wines - we hope you enjoy them.

100% Lenswood Pinot Noir.
Kept on a mix of French and American oak for 11 months before bottling.
Clear bright ruby colour. Sour cherry and raspberry nose lifted by wet leaves and mushroom. Fresh cranberry and red cherry palate with hints of licorice and lively yet smooth tannins.
Anderson Hill O Series 2018 Shiraz has taken out the ‘Best In Show’ at the world’s largest and most influential wine competition, the Decanter World Wine Awards!
The wine is dark in colour, with lots of episcopal purple; the aromas are bright, lifted and billowing, not just cherry-fresh but with some billowing cherry blossom in there too. In the mouth, the wine is deep, round, poised and lively: an explosion of vivid fruits with a peppery finish.” – Trophy & 97 Points Decanter DWWA 2020
Lifted red cherry, plum and fig are matched with florals and baking spices as well as hints of savoury, earthy notes. The palate features red cherry and cranberry notes which are framed with lovely natural acidity and long fine tannins. A beautifully textured wine with plush, persistent length.
