Autumn has just begun but you can instantly notice the change of season looking at the vines. Leaves turning  from deep green into orange and yellow and while we still have so beautiful warm days outside, why not soak those last rays of sunshine up on the veranda with a glass of Ngeringa in your hand. Erinn has put together a selection of his  favourite single vineyard wines at a special price $238, including freight (Regular price $280).

The mixed Single Vineyard 6 Packs includes 2 bottles of each:

Summit Chardonnay 2016

Summit Pinot Noir 2017

Iluma Syrah 2017

The Summit Vineyard
Both the Summit Chardonnay and Summit Pinot Noir are made from solely estate-grown fruit, from our steep easterly facing Summit vineyard, which sits at 360m above sea level, with a direct line of sight to Lake Alexandrina and the Murray mouth in the distance. Consequently receiving cooling evening breezes which do much to preserve our fruit acids and flavours through the critical weeks of ripening.

The Iluma Vineyard
NGERINGA Iluma Syrah is grown on a westerly facing slope on the immediate foothills to the north of Mt Barker Summit. At 420m altitude, the soil of the Iluma vineyard sparkles with micaceous schist, capturing the eyes, and the imagination, of many a passerby, with its mystical reflective qualities. The grapes are selected from a small section within the Iluma vineyard where there are three distinct rocky ridges. It’s here that the schist is most concentrated, and the grapes have the best flavour.

Summit Chardonnay 2016
Whole bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques and puncheons. Natural fermentation with minimal temperature control. 100% natural malolactic fermentation. 20% new barrels. Élevage for 12 months on full lees to build texture and integrated layers of flavour. Minimal sulphur added prior to bottling.

Summit Pinot Noir 2017
The grapes are very gently hand-harvested, de-stemmed and lightly hand plunged for two to three weeks before pressing directly into French barrels. There it is allowed to evolve for eleven months of maturation before a minimal dash of sulphur is added just prior to bottling, to protect from oxidation.

Iluma Syrah 2017
The bunches are gently hand-harvested, and then de-stemmed into small batch fermenters, where they remain on skins for up to 28 days before pressing into French oak barriques and Foudre, for 24-months of maturation before bottling. One of our premium wines, the Iluma Syrah is sealed with best quality cork and wax capping.

2016 was a dry, hot vintage from the outset with only periodic respite. Promising rains in July and August of 2015 gave way quickly to an extremely dry spring and above-average temperatures, with essentially none of the seasonal rains we rely upon from October through much of January. On the bright side, despite conditions at flowering, we had a better-than-ever fruit set that was consistent across all varieties. And then, just as vintage was becoming visible on the horizon, the miracle came: a perfectly-timed, drenching rainstorm hit South Australia on January 21 & 22, refreshing the vines in a way irrigation just cannot match. A second significant rain event in the first few days of February ensured that the vintage was saved. The harvest was very early, beginning in the middle of February, but not nearly as early as it would have been and the fruit was thoroughly revived. The result was higher-than-average yields, good acidity, moderate concentration and balanced, approachable wines. Winegrowing is rarely for the feint of heart!


In 2017 the Adelaide Hills recorded its largest annual rainfall in a quarter of a century during the 2017 growing season. Although these heavy rains created disease pressure for many local wineries, our biodynamically-managed vineyards remained healthy and vibrant, producing some of our best grapes so far. An extended harvest helped by a long slow ripening period also contributed to what was, for us, a dream vintage, offering both excellent quality grapes and quantity.
