Established in 2002 by Dr. John Tomich and his wife, Vicki, this Adelaide Hills winery has a remarkable reputation for innovation and harnessing some of the best winemaking talent in the country. The fruit is sourced from their own 200 acres of vines located in the very cool Onkaparinga Valley in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. It is the largest vineyard in the region and is farmed using sustainable practices. Today, Tomich Wines is still family owned and operated with John's son, Randal Tomich, heading up the winemaking duties alongside consultant winemaker Ben Riggs.

The wine combines sweet fruit notes with savoury nuances, showing dark cherry, game, thyme and toasted nut characters on the nose with a hint of earthy mushroom complexity. The palate is elegant yet intense and persistent, offering excellent weight and fine texture, leading to a lengthy refined finish. At its best: now to 2024.
