Every vintage of this pinot has sold like crazy. The ‘13 and ‘14 were adored and applauded by mofos everywhere, and this ‘15 is following in its older siblings’ footsteps and blowing minds and palates.

The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
Slow Cooked Casserole
- 800g chuck steak, diced
- 4 Desiree potatoes, cubed
- 4 carrots, trimmed, sliced
- 415g can diced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1/4 cup gravy powder
- Crusty bread, to serve
- Preheat oven to 130°C. Place meat, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes and tomato paste into an ovenproof casserole dish. Mix well to combine.
- Cover with a lid. Bake for 3 hours 45 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking.
