This wine has a code name – “McIntyre Lane” which the label tells me is the original name of the entry to Yerring Station. 

I like a code name. Sometimes I feel like in Australia we are too fixated on grape variety. 

People are fond of saying “I don’t drink Chardonnay” or “I don’t like Sauvignon Blanc”. I feel that is a hard call to make unless you have tried them all – or at least 20 – to come to such a conclusion. So having a code name can disguise the varieties and leave the taster focussed on, well, the taste! 


As I hear the Willunga Church bell tolling, I feel I must disclose, that the variety is proudly shown right under the code name on this bottle. I still like it. Six of one and half a dozen of the other.
