The Pawn Makes a Move with New Labels

 Tom Keelan (viticulturist and winemaker), Rebecca Wilson (Winemaker) and David Blows (a leading Adelaide Hills vigneron) joined forces. The 3 Amigos feared that special parcels of fruit, in exceptional vineyard sites were being blended away into "large company" essence they decided to channel their skills towards small batch winemaking, and to stop being "pawns" of the global game. A recent label change has seen this smart brand really "go there" and we're loving them.

The carefully hand selected parcels of fruit produce wines that are not only unconventional, but incredibly food friendly. 

New for the brand is the Pawn Star Maturana Tinta 2018. Another bold and beautiful label. "A rare grape in the Adelaide Hills, producing a rich, ripe and vibrant red with attractive aromas of spice, earth and bracken, leading to a bold but drinkable palate that is packed with ripe dark-berry and plum flavors. The tannins are carved in thick, soft slices. Drink over the next five years." 92 Points, Nick Stock
