Domaine les Deux Terres is about two friends, Vincent Fargier and Manu Cunin, who love wine. Both Vincent and Manu are from the Ardèche. They met in 1997. At the time, without the vineyards of their own, they together worked for a winery in Provence. Vincent worked in the vineyards while Manu worked in the cellar. Over the years, each moved on to different wine-related jobs. Then in 2007, they met again serendipitously when they were individually working at separate but neighbouring domains. So, Vincent and Manu kept bumping into each other. That is when they started dreaming about a domain of their own. Manu eventually purchased some vineyards that sit on a high altitude with basalt terroir. Meanwhile, Vincent got some clay-limestone vineyards from his family as his father was retiring. Thus, Domaine les Deux Terres was born.
This is an equal blend of Syrah on clay-limestone and Grenache on basalt. Sometimes, a dollop of Merlot is also added for spice complexity. Each varietal is fermented separately but blended into neutral barrels, where the élevage is about six to eight months. The presence of Syrah is self-evident in colour, length and perfume.
Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has a deliciously juicy mid palate with flavours of plum, dark cherry and dried herbs. Unashamedly medium-bodied with sweet juicy fruit and a fine tannin structure.
Ridge Of Tears Shiraz 2017
An elegant Shiraz from Peter Logan’s Ridge of Tears range, the wine has perfumed berry and provence herb aromas of rosemary, thyme and fennel with a touch of white pepper. Smooth and velvety with a soft finish.
The same old thing. There’s plenty of that. Why make more?
When I started out, I wanted to make wine that I liked to drink. I wanted to excite me, not cater to a demographic. So against lots of strong opinions (including within my family) I began deviating from the usual winemaker script. Different to what we were taught at wine college. Different to what the establishment was doing.
I chose the then unfamiliar NSW Central Ranges as my base, planted Tempranillo, made Pinot Gris when few did, made Gewürztraminer (people still don’t), created whimsical labels and stories, fermented white grapes on their skins, used large barrel oak, wild yeasts, and now sell wine in kegs!
And our modern cellar door looks out to the world, not inward. I’d guess it’s that mindset that has allowed this small independent winemaker to still be excited to do the same old thing for 24 years.
Tim Smith Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2021 Discovering more old vine mataro and grenache in the ‘gardens’ of Tim Smith’s Barossa growers, provides him the perfect opportunity to craft a blend that is quite aromatic and in the ‘Rhone Style’ that he loves. Retaining all the plush palate weight is the hallmark of this wine, which is always purposefully mataro dominant. This allows the mataro fruit, which has a similar tannin structure as shiraz, to be ready to drink upon release as well as having some serious cellaring potential.

Winemaking and Viticulture
The grapes were picked at between 13.5 to 14.0 Baume to
produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great
wine. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of vessels to
produce as much colour and flavour as possible. Portion of the
wine underwent oak during fermentation and once dry, the
remaining went to oak until the right balance was achieved.
Careful tasting and blending, by our winemaker, help produce
this wine of style and great value for money.
Intense red with purple hues. Fresh, complex cassis and mint
fruit flavours with some well integrated vanillin oak . Full bodied
with dense ripe cassis fruit flavours balanced with vanillin oak
but yet long and smooth. Try with chargrilled sirloin or a hearty
minestrone. This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to
be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further
The Sutton Grange Estate Syrah is the purest expression of the property.
Fragrant aromas of blue fruits, black currants and lifted violet florals, with complex hints of dark chocolate and fresh turned earth.
Palate has flavours of fresh blue fruits with spiced notes of sweet cinnamon and cardamom.
The palate is medium-full bodied, with grainy tannins and a core of gravel driving the mid-palate. The wine has both elegance and strength driven by the fruit definition and granitic tannins.
2018 was one of the great seasons we have experienced.
We had a series of favourable events that year – rainfall at the right times, great flowering and ripening conditions. Coinciding with the 20th year of vines in the ground, 2018 was a lovely chance for us to enjoy the spoils of an established vineyard. The 2018 Estate wines celebrate a benchmark year.
Sutton Grange is located on the southern edge of the Bendigo region, and for many years was known for its thoroughbred racing facility. Since planting of the vineyards in 1998 it is now recognised for the wines it produces. The Sutton Grange vineyard is cultivated using organic methods, and the wines are traditionally handcrafted by winemaker Melanie Chester. The wines combine distinctive style and interpretation with our organically grown estate fruit creating wines that express the uniqueness and characteristics of the site. Producing two labels, Fairbank – the original name of the property in the 19th Century, and our Estate range. Wines under the Fairbank label are crafted to be approachable, fresh and fruit driven. The Estate wines strongly demonstrate the terroir and characteristics of the farm, also included in the range are some less known varieties such as Aglianico.
Mr Barval Cabernet Merlot 2017 A restrained yet complex nose displaying a wonderful mix of cassis, black berry, currant, and plum, hints of spicey oak and a typically delicate Margaret River savoury dried kelp note. Medium to full bodied with plenty of acid to lift the palate and balance the autumn fruit bowl of dark and red berries and fruits. The youthful tannins are nutty, fine and dry and complete the well structured palate to perfection. This wine is already showing great depth and complexity in youth and I feel it has great potential to age and develop for at least 15 years.
The Ryder Shiraz 2017 is sourced from estate grown premium vineyards in Clare Valley.Displaying dark raspberry and plum with black pepper and spice, this wine is soft and opulent with a long finish.
Paxton MV Shiraz 2020
Organic | Biodynamic
COLOUR: Bright purple with red hues
AROMA: Oscillating between ripe blackberries stolen from your neighbour’s back fence and wild fennel seeds harvested along a country roadside this wine keeps you intrigued waiting for further revelations like cocoa and star anise
PALATE: A medium to full-bodied wine with fresh mulberries on the palate entrance. The texture feels like floating over rolling hills in a smooth convertible, opening up like a view over an expansive valley at the crest of the last hill. Elongated by careful maturation in French oak barriques, the finish is like watching a glowing sunset at the end of an action-packed day
Paxton’s vineyards comprise of six Biodynamic properties. MV ‘McLaren Vale’ or ‘Multiple Vineyard’ Shiraz is a blend of 100% Shiraz from four of the Paxton vineyards, and has been developed to highlight optimum fruit flavours.
The MV displays the hallmarks of classic McLaren Vale Shiraz – elegance, balance and pleasure in a bottle. This wine gives the best of both worlds: a fantastic wine when young, but careful cellaring for 10-15 years will reward you very nicely.
Tellurian Tranter Shiraz 2018
Tranter Shiraz is our flagship wine, a tribute to a pioneering Australian, returned WWI soldier George Edwin Tranter who once owned our lands. First made in 2008, this medium to full-bodied shiraz showcases Heathcote’s trademark minerality, depth of flavor and intensity.
Warramate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 A medium-bodied “classic” claret style featuring a succulent, fruit-layered palate integrated with earthy complexity & fine dusty tannins. Juicy acidity underscores well-weighted voluminous fruit & a deep, long finish, combining generosity & concentration with finesse rarely found at this price point.
