Born into a grape-growing family, Don Lewis spent 32 years working for the Mitchelton winery in Heathcote, where he forged an enduring partnership with Narelle King. In 2004 Don left Mitchelton to work as a consultant, most notably in Priorat, Spain. His time in Europe cultivated his fascination with the wines of Italy and Spain, and in 2006 he and Narelle set up Tar and Roses in order to show how these varietals could be grown in the diverse terroirs of Central Victoria.

Wild thyme, earthy and spicy characteristics on the nose, with hints of blackberry and cherry. The palate is full and savoury, with hints of fresh tobacco leaf, sweet black cherry and hints of aniseed—mouth-filling powdery tannin, well balanced with a sweet cherry finish.

Carpaccio with parmesan, stew, grilled lamb and game.

Beautifully refined, aged in old oak barrels for an extra dose of smokey complexity.
