Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Notes:
Crafted by leading Australian winemaker, Ben Riggs, the 2005 Buzz Cut exhibits aromas of tropical fruit, apricot, and grapefruit. Juicy, tropical Verdelho and exotically perfumed Viognier combine with dashes of Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling to provide a refreshing, succulent wine. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

Background:
That's why we usually greet each other with the "Great Aussie Salute"- a hand waved casually across one's face to shoo the expected flies. This common gesture captures Australians' knack for brushing away life's little distractions and appreciating each day for what it is... a great opportunity.

Ben knows his stuff and where to get it – his roster of grape growers is one of the most sought after contact lists in the country. Premium regions produce the best fruit and the grapes come from a "who's who" of Australian growers and viticultural neighborhoods – Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and Heathcote.
