    Small fossils, big possibilities. When digging their first dam the Taylors family came across some tiny fossilised seahorses. Aww cute. But wait, there’s more!

    Remembering everything they learnt in Viticulture 101 – where there are tiny fossilised seahorses there must have been an ancient seabed. Where there’s an ancient seabed there’s limestone…and where there’s aged limestone there’s rich terra rossa soil and that is like gold to a vine!

    Jaraman is the Aboriginal word for ‘Horse’ and the three tiny seahorses that are behind this story and feature on the label are a nod to the three previous generations of Taylors’ family winemakers.

    Different (sea) horses for different (sea) courses. They’ve combined a-grade parcels of fruit from two of Australia’s best known Shiraz producing regions, the Clare Valley (63%) and McLaren Vale (37%), to produce this absolutely sumptous, rich and full bodied red.

    Drinking well now but if you’re into tucking wines away in your cellar this will go as long as ten years.
