The Rudderless vines are all grown on the five acre estate vineyard surrounding the Victory Hotel. Combining the vineyards’ maritime climate and Winemakers Pete Fraser and Charlie Seppelt at Yangarras’ experience and dedication with Doug’s passion for his project, the resulting Rudderless wines are spectacular!
Overlooking the St Vincent gulf this exceptional vineyard is located 110m above sea level on the most southerly boundary of the McLaren Vale wine region
“From the estate planting of 538 grenache vines. The colour is bright and clear, the hue headed towards magenta; this is yet another wonderful wine from Doug Govan (and winemaker Peter Fraser). It is an exercise in seemingly effortless purity, its bevy of red fruits linking like cow bells on Swiss pastures.” – 97 Points James Halliday
