A.Retief Petit Verdot 2019

Deep dark purple in colour the wine has aromas of pot-pourri, violets andblueberries.The palate is lean and long, a blend of cardamon, spice and dry fennel with blackberry jam and rich tannins building at the finish.

Alex Retief first entered the wine-making industry in the mid 1990’s via his parents’ small vineyard outside of Wagga Wagga, NSW. Developing a passion for the art of wine making, Alex studied Wine Science at Charles Sturt University, and then became a trainee at the University’s winery and then decided to move overseas to further his skills. Following his traineeship he worked in Sonoma Valley (California) and Margan Wines in the NSW Hunter Valley where he was winemaker for 3 years. During that time, Alex worked in the Languedoc (France) for a harvest before moving to Bordeaux as Winemaker at Chateau de Lagarde, for 2 years. Following a number of years working at different vineyards around the globe, Alex dreamt of starting his own winery back in NSW.

Returning to Australia, Alex created the A. Retief label in 2008 and drew on his favourite regions of NSW to create his wines. Alex’s vision was inspired by his upbringing and passion for local produce and he felt that he could create a venue that both supported and celebrated all things NSW; combining his own wine with different foods to provide visitors with a unique and memorable experience.

In 2016, Alex launched Australia’s first large scale urban winery in St Peters, Sydney; a site that was community focused, interactive and clearly one of a kind. In April 2018, Alex undertook the enormous task of moving his entire winery from St. Peter’s to where we are located now, The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park.
