"The Truth is in the vineyard but the proof is in the glass" Sister's Run is serious fun. Our talented young winemaker Elena wears steel cap work boots every day of course, but carries a pair of high heels in back of the ute, only for emergencies, like last minute invitations to accept trophies at gala wine show dinners and the like. Returning from a 'knees-up' at midnight, mid vintage, she managed to kick off one high heel and slip back into a boot' just as the cellar crew cried out, 'Run Sister Run'; and exactly then our winemaker and label took flight! The stiletto and boot are Sister's Run; an independently owned and operated winery with a fierce commitment to making the best wines we can from family vineyards. We don't take ourselves as seriously as we take our wines, but agree with Elena, all you need to know about wine is the five 'V's and - remember - the best wine is the wine you like. We hope you enjoy this wine as much as we did making it.
CAMPBELL MATTINSON - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
A flash of fresh fruit, citrus as much as stone fruit, washes juicily through the palate. Nicely handled and presented.
JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE
A sleek, restrained style, the 2017 Sunday Slippers Chardonnay features crisp, lime-like flavors and hints of green apple and pear. It's light to medium-bodied, with a satiny texture and a lingering finish.
CHRISTINA PICKARD - WINE ENTHUSIAST
This wine starts out delicate and pretty, with fragrances of flower blossoms, pears and apples gently wafting from the glass. It takes a much sharper turn on the palate, though, where angular acidity bites and tingles, slicing like a razor through the chalky texture and lean fruit and throwing the wine off balance. Acid hounds might dig it, but others will find the acidity alarming.
