Winemaker's Notes

Bogan means "black sheep," and was winemaker, Reid Boward's nickname in school. A major proportion of the fruit to make this wine, comes from our vineyard at Marananga, approximately 8 kms south west of the winery, planted in 1899. Soils are quite different here, consisting of sandy loam, followed by clay with limestone thinly dispersed. This tends to give the wine more blue fruit characters and lift combined with the intensity of the old vines.
