Producer 

Local winemaker Sierra Reed, and when I say local, I mean winery out of the back of Bunnings in Torquay and vineyard in Jan Juc, that local, has been making wine under her label Reed for the last 10 years and has made a good name for herself despite not allowing her wines to be scored or judged by critics. Sierra hasn't gained formal training as a winemaker; she's done vintages around the globe, learning from the best in the business, completing stints at Chandon in the Yarra Valley, Head Wines in the Barossa, Rippon in Central Otago as well as European vintages in Rheingau, Pfalz and Barolo to name a few. She's inquisitive and thinks about things deeply but is also pragmatic. She backs herself and her wines and works passionately, dedicated to her craft. Her wines are aromatic, ethereal and balanced expressions of the grapes and soil they're grown.  

Tasting Note 

Sierra has been making wine from this vineyard for the last few years, but this is the first vintage as Vigneron. Sierra and her family now live on the vineyard, and she cares for the vines herself. She has hard pruned the vines and opened up the canopy to give the fruit more exposure, hoping to make the fruit more ripe and generous. Bright crystalline acidity, zesty lemon and lime, citrus juice, jalapeno, and a salty finish—Margarita, anyone? It's thirst-quenching goodness.
