Woolpunda Cabernet Sauvignon – A very lightly oaked Cabernet delivering richness and complexity with a proud history – grapes for this wine are picked from the ‘home block’ where Byrne Vineyards began in the 1963.

Tucumen Malbec– Tucumen Malbec is vinified to a medium intensity to emphasise fruit and softness; a short contact with new American oak gives light vanilla and toast notes making a very approachable style of Malbec.
