This wine is named in honour of Athelstan Friend who originally operated the Narkoojee property as a dairy farm.  The 2017 season has produced fruit of exceptional quality which was hand-picked from our estate vines late in March and fermented by indigenous yeasts.  This is an elegant wine of exceptional character and can be expected to develop further over the next seven years or so.
