As legend goes, years ago, Rob called the winemakers together for an urgent meeting. The urgent matter? He wanted a pizza wine, and boy did they rise to the challenge. Mediterranean varietals – tempranillo (30%), sangiovese (14%), barbera (13%) and Grenache (11%) – created stunning flavours but it was missing a little ‘weight’ on the palate. All it took was a little shiraz to perfectly tie them all together. Aptly named ‘Four + one,’ this wine has become a crowd favourite that we’re famous for today.

Perfectly paired for pizza! Particularly with savoury/ spicy toppings ie. truffle, olives, basil, oregano, prosciutto or tuscan sausage.
