Flinty aromas start off with the wine opening up to a preserved lemon peel, with gooseberry and floral notes coming through. Textually phenolic on the palate with the preserved lemon coming through and long, fine acid driving the finish.

Dan Graham takes the Sigurd name from his Norwegian great-grandfather, who shared a similarly mischievous outlook. Sigurd Wines was born in 2012 with just two tonnes of Grenache from Blewitt Springs, which Dan fermented on a friend’s veranda. This follows a career that has taken him to Central Otago, Alentejo, Bordeaux, Hermitage, Barolo and around New South Wales and Barossa, including a stint at Jacob’s Creek. As Dan puts it, “when all is said and done, I just make wines that I want to drink.”
