Sister’s Run is serious fun and serious wine. The talented, young winemaker Elena Brooks (of Dandelion Vineyards and Heirloom Vineyards fame) wears steel cap work boots every day of course, but carries a pair of high heels in back of the ute for emergencies - like last minute invitations to accept trophies at gala wine show dinners and the like!

Calvary Hill produces real depth and sports classic Barossa aromas of flavours of salted dark chocolate coated with sweet spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The palate reveals liqueured chocolate and a savoury side with the fruit perfectly balanced by keen acidity, providing overarching structure. Indeed, this is an organized wine, with architectural qualities.

Pair with local cheeses that are more firm and robust to match the headiness of this wine. 

About the Winery

Sister's Run

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.

Press Reviews

The Real Review

92 Points - Aaron Brasher

Dense and dark in the glass. Aromas of spice, stewed plums, blackberry, briar and menthol. Big and fleshy on the palate, plum, mulberry, dark and juicy. Firm tannin and bright acidity rounds the wine out nicely. Drink date: 2022-2032.
