Tired of wine hangovers? According to Persian legend, King Jamsheed’s wines cured headaches and granted eternal life.


Ok, so we’re not entirely convinced, but if you want to avoid morning-after regrets then this is a great shout: ever so fun yet seriously made, Jamsheed really demonstrates the potential of Australian Pinot Noir.


Plenty of full, bright fruit that fills up the palate: sweet redcurrant and cherry with briar and mocha and plenty of finesse.

Gary Mills stumbled into wine after teaching in Japan, taking jobs in Margaret River and then at the renowned Ridge Vineyards in California.


On returning to Australia, he took the old-fashioned approach of minimal intervention and strong expression of the region - ideas that still aren’t widespread in the country.


Gary grows high quality organic grapes, fermenting whole bunches and lees ageing the wine to maximise the smooth fruitiness and texture.
