The 2019 Merlesco Merlot has a new look!

This is a deliciously uncomplicated, juicy and fresh ‘little Merlot’. Bursting with the aromas of fresh blackberry, blueberry and cherry fruit. This is a wine to be drunk young and fresh; the perfect summer red. Winemaker Joe Grilli recommends Merlesco is best served out of tumblers with an alfresco table of antipasto, pizza or pasta.

We've given the 2019 release a new label to reflect the wine's vibrant personality.

The 2019 JOSEPH First Run Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Released!

We have just bottled our 2019 JOSEPH First Run Olive Oil! 

2019 has been one of the best olive harvests in recent memory – it’s been a longer, cooler season. Growers were really able to dial-in picking time. 

The first thing we noticed about the 2019 oil was the vibrant colour and pepper notes – perfect material for the JOSEPH First Run. The bottled oil is showing all the spice and fruit vibrancy that amazed us at the press.

The First Run is the first pressing of oil from the harvest’s early crop. The yield is low, but fruit characters are at their most intense. In this bright green oil, vibrant olive fruit flavours blend with a clean peppery finish. This is a long and textured oil with notes of green banana and freshly cut grass.

2018 Nero d'Avola Release!

Winemaker Joe Grilli fell in love with the Nero d'Avola grape during his trips to its home of Sicily, Southern Italy. McLaren Vale’s warm maritime climate is ideally suited to the rich, spicy Nero d’Avola grape. This limited release is made using traditional open fermenters, and is matured in seasoned oak barrels.

We only made a tiny batch in 2018 and do not expect it to last long!

The JOSEPH Sparkling Red has been Released!

The lastest disgorgement of JOSEPH Sparkling Red is here! 

To create the JOSEPH Sparkling Red a hogshead of the ultra premium JOSEPH Moda Cabernet Merlot from every year since 1991 and Primo Estate Shiraz from 1989 is added to a unique blend of museum vintages from the past 40 years.

The result is a layered style with dark, brooding complexity and a unique mixture of cherry, roast nut and dark chocolate.

This is an extremely limited bottling which will sell out fast.

Discover this unique style today!
