Dominic and Krystina Morris are a young winemaking couple with a passion for making interesting, premium red wines. They met while working vintage in the Barossa Valley and together spent many years travelling and working consecutive vintages in Australia and Europe. It was on their regular end of vintage holiday to the beautiful Pondalowie Bay on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula that the pair made the decision to funnel their enthusiasm and experience into a vineyard and winery of their own. They chose the Bendigo region in Central Victoria and with family support set about establishing 25 acres of vineyard with grapes varieties that they were passionate about. The winery is named Pondalowie after the special place where they decided to turn their dream into reality.
Fermented in open-top vats, basket-pressed and barrel-matured for 18 months in used French oak. The palate is full of black fruits, and with significantly more tannin structure than is commonly encountered in Australia. It simply requires a Rioja mentality, and regard the wine as a baby until it has its 10th birthday party – prior to that time, you won’t find overmuch joy. - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (2012 vintage)
