The fruit for the wines was sourced from a range of premium McLaren Vale vineyards. Many of these vineyards are extremely low yielding, are minimally irrigated, and produce fruit with an abundance of varietal character. Some of the parcels of fruit have been sourced from local bush vines which are approximately eighty years of age. Too often in large scale winemaking this type of individuality is lost, enveloped in the drive for volume, shackled by the cost or efficiencies of modern production.

No expense has been spared for the show of oak, the time to nurture and manipulate the ferments with the likes of extreme cold soak must macerations, flamboyant carbonics and hair raising extended macerations for the wonderment of the crowds. The concept behind the logo of “La Curio Wines” is the image of a unique pair of Harry Houdini’s manacles. Houdini often used this figure of eight handcuffs to perplex and challenge his competitors, the original now being held in the Houdini collection of a Mr. Sid Radner.
