Our Wines

All of our wines are sealed with stelvins (screw-caps) and are made in very limited quantities. Depending on seasonal variations, we are aiming to produce 1-2 tonnes of the Eden Valley Riesling and around a tonne each of the Red wines (Bullfrog Flat Eden Valley Shiraz and Barossa Shiraz) annually.  We strongly recommend decanting our wines and allowing them to breathe before drinking, as it seems to enhance the characteristics of each wine.

Additionally, drinking wine at the correct temperature is also important.  We suggest our Rieslings be served at around 10 - 12 degrees and our Shiraz at about 12 -15 degrees.  If wine is served too chilled, ie less than 4 - 5 degrees, this can have a detrimental affect on the flavours.

The story behind our labels

Our front labels each feature one of the little creatures that frequent our home, and sometimes even the inside of our home, with the exception of the Shiraz Cabernet which has an aboriginal design in honour of the name "Karra Yerta".

Our Rieslings have the Superb Fairy Wren; the Barossa Shiraz has the Marbled-Gecko; and the Bullfrog Flat (Eden Valley) Shiraz features the Bullfrog/Banjo Frog, in dedication to a local Flaxmans Valley get-together/dance called the "Bullfrog Flat Ball" that used to be held in the early to mid 1900s in a building nearby. Unfortunately this building no longer stands.

Each back label features the story behind our name "Karra Yerta", describes the environment in which our wines are created and a brief description of the wine including the amount produced.
