Winery Of The Month

DODGY BROTHERS – McLaren Vale, SA

A grower, a viticulturist, and a winemaker…

What first brought my attention to this wine was the label on the Juxtaposed Grenache 2016. It was eye catching amongst the other wines in Brendon Keys’s home cellar. I asked him about it, we cracked one open and enjoyed a really perfumed, floral and medium bodied, balanced and long wine with supple tannins, gorgeous mouthfeel; a wine too easy to drink! The next day, I called Wes Pearson, the maker behind the label, and invited him to come meet the directors. We opened a few good bottles together and the whole thing finished much later than planned. This is what happens when you drink wine, you make friends. Wes, also a professor at Adelaide University, has recently been voted as one of the top 12 Leaders of the Industry in the country.
