Who is All Saints Estate?
All Saints Estate is a family owned and operated winery which is run by fourth generation siblings- Eliza, Angela and Nicholas Brown. Each sibling has great experience from both the wine industry and from working with the family winery. Eliza is CEO, Angela handles marketing and Nicholas heads the winemaking team and is general manager. They have a strong union which is evident from what Eliza says: “the family who play together, stays together!”

2013 Family Cellar Marsanne
|2013 Family Cellar Marsanne
The 2013 Family Cellar Marsanne has lovely notes of white peach, citrus and pear with oakey notes. Delicious! It was paired with this platter! This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for about 5 years. Marsanne is a white wine grape, most commonly found in Northern Rhône, France. It is also found in Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia of course and the USA.
2013 Family Cellar Shiraz
|Al Saints 20113 Family Cellar Shiraz
The 2013 Family Cellar Shiraz is a full bodied Shiraz with notes of plum and red berry fruits with hints of pepper and spice. It would pair well with a nice salmon dish as Once Upon A Wine did with Hello Fresh along with pesto potatoes!
2012 Family Cellar Durif
|All Saints 2012 Family Cellar Durif
The 2012 Family Cellar Durif has lovely plum and red berry flavours with hints of spice. Definitely worth checking out. It is very food friendly and can be enjoyed with a slow cooked lamb dish. This wine was aged in French and American oak. In case you haven’t heard of Durif, it is a red wine grape which originates from Montpellier in France but is also primarily grown in Australia (and is popular in the Rutherglen area), California and Israel. It is also sometimes known in some places as ‘Petite Syrah’.
