Scary Gully has a fine boned line from the shallow rocky soils its grown on high up in Forest Range. No bold flavours, the wine is all about the minerality and the hints of lime, fennel seeds and white peach. Its driven, it’s distinct, it’s one of the great sites in the Adelaide Hills, further enhanced by low yields and the coolness of the vintage.
