Grand Reserve


When the conditions are considered to be at their optimum, we produce wines for the Grand Reserve Range. This range is the pinnacle of Pepper Tree Wines and can be simply explained as the 'best of the best'. Produced in limited quantities these wines are highly sought after.


The name 'Strandlines' comes from the ancient shorelines or dunes that mark the retreating ocean from what is now the Naracoorte Range in Wrattonbully. These ancient dunes harbour the famed 'Terra Rossa' topsoil over Gambier limestone. The secret of these soils lies in the near perfect drainage they provide, leading to small crops of wonderfully concentrated fruit.

Tallawanta Hunter Valley Shiraz

The best Hunter Shiraz comes from old vines grown on the renowned red clay soils on the foothills of the Brokenback Range. The Tallawanta Vineyard was planted in 1920 by the Elliot family and to this day produces some of the Hunter's best Shiraz. Now under the care of Pepper Tree, these 90 year old vines produce tiny quantities of intensely flavoured fruit.

8R Merlot

8R Merlot is sourced off our Wrattonbully Vineyard on the Limestone Coast. It is a new clone which has only recently been introduced to Australia. We have separated the fruit from this block as it shows more flavour and intensity with excellent structure.
