Background

Colonel Peter Egerton Warburton is one of Australia's fascinating early pioneers. He rested at his property, Norley Bank after his forays out west and indulged his passion for cultivating the vine. In recognition of his passion for wine and his efforts in opening up this great country, this wine has aromas of plum and spice with a toasty vanillin oak influence and soft lingering tannins fill the palate.
