Boston Bay Wines

French explorers Nicholas Baudin and Citizen Freycinet predicted that the Boston Bay region would be an ideal place to grow quality grapes, naming it ‘Port du Champagny’ and ‘Isle de la Grange’. With this very idea in mind, Graham and Mary Ford relocated from Sydney to the shores of Port Lincoln in 1982. More than 20 years later, Boston Bay Wines continues to relish in the legitimacy of the early explorer’s claims.

Boston Bay Wines specialises in single varietal wines – including shiraz, chardonnay and riesling mistelle to name a few – and boasts a plethora of awards from Winestate magazine and the Royal Adelaide Wine Show.

The property features a breathtaking vista of blue seas, cruising yachts and even the occasional sighting of a whale – the company jokes that it is so close to the beach it can only prune at low-tide! Boston Bay Wines is the perfect place to enjoy an award winning wine while basking in the property’s unassailable beauty.

TASTING NOTES

 

2014 Boston Bay Riesling

A powerful perfumed palate, showing spicy citrus flavours with floral undertones and plenty of steely acid layered with Boston Bay Wines’ trademark mineral tones. Winner of Winestate magazine’s 2014 Riesling of the Year.

2013 Boston Bay Shiraz

The nose offers white pepper with blackcurrants, black olives and hints of oak. The palate is soft and judicious with plenty of blackberry and plummy fruit characters. The oak appears to be minimal and tannins likewise. This is a firm and dry shiraz, with a full-bodied, silky finish. Earthy, rich and concentrated, this wine will benefit from careful cellaring over the next five to seven years.
