Domenica is the project Peter Graham, who worked for 13 years with the top winery in Beechworth. The 4 hectares vineyard is located six kilometres south west of Beechworth, adjacent to the renowned Warner vineyard, at an altitude of around 550 metres. The soil is granitic, and the exposure is varied, from steep southerly slopes for the chardonnay, to a gentler north easterly aspect for the marsanne, roussanne.
'It rises in the glass beautifully. It starts well but then gets better and better. It tastes of blueberries, black cherries and violets with licks of dry spice. We’re almost into the gunmetal and graphite realm here. It’s firm with tannin but the fruit slips right on through; the momentum is neither halted nor slowed. It’s no showboat – it’s not even particularly rich – but it’s quite masterful.'
