My Notes:

About Small Gully:

Established in 1999, Small Gully was founded by vignerons, Robert Bader and Darren Zimmermann and winemaker Stephen Black. In 2002 a winery was built at Darren's Marananga property, situated in a 'small gully' on Roennfeldt Road, Greenock in the Barossa Valley.

The people of Small Gully bring passion, experience and history to their winery. Robert started in the wine industry in 1981 whist the Zimmermann family has been growing grapes in the Barossa Valley since early last century. Darren and Robert have established superb low yielding Shiraz vineyards, producing super-premium fruit. Small parcels of Grenache, Mourvédre and Cabernet Sauvignon are also carefully selected from other local vineyards for the Small Gully wine range.
