Wayward Child ~ Spirit of adventure & the journey of discovery.Read More
Although our first vintage (2016) wines have been sourced entirely from our own (Helen & Joey Estate) vineyard, Wayward Child wines are not confined by fences, regions, varieties, styles or critics expectations. If our experiments result in what we think is an outstanding wine; we will bottle it under the Wayward Child label. The same wines may not be made every year, as vintage conditions will dictate to a certain degree what we can or can’t do.
All Wayward Child wines are handmade, at our winery in tiny quantities. You will not find these wines in mainstream bottle shops or discount websites. If you’re lucky, one of your favourite restaurants may have some on their wine list for a short period of time. If you want some, today is the day.
2017 WAYWARD CHILD SERENDIP
Wayward Child Serendip is the result of the 2017 vintage in which our Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz ripened within a week of each other, providing the rare opportunity to harvest and blend straight from the field. Whole bunches were co-fermented before ageing in old oak for 12 months, creating a unique taste of Helen & Joey Estate. With lashings of rhubarb, raspberry liquor, cacao, beetroot earthiness and a sherbet finish, each sip unfolds another piece of the journey.
