About the Winery
Sister’s Run is serious fun. Their talented young winemaker Elena wears steel cap work boots every day of course, but carries a pair of high heels in back of the ute, only for emergencies, like last minute invitations to accept trophies at gala wine show dinners and the like.
Returning from a ‘knees-up’ at midnight, mid vintage, she managed to kick off one high heel and slip back into a boot’ just as the cellar crew cried out, ‘Run Sister Run’; and exactly then their winemaker and label took flight!
The stiletto and boot are Sister’s Run; an independently owned and operated winery with a fierce commitment to making the best wines they can from family vineyards. They don’t take ourselves as seriously as we take our wines, but agree with Elena, all you need to know about wine is the five ‘V’s and remember the best wine is the wine you like.
90pts - David Lawrason
This shows a nicely typical if vaguely confected cabernet nose of blackcurrant jam, green leaf/mint, tobacco, with some charcoal and dark chocolate. It is medium-full bodied, juicy, just a touch sweet with firm cabernet tannin. Lots of components for the money, if not reaching into the realm of elegance. Flavour depth is excellent, especially at $20.
