The Chalmers family are arguably one of the most important names in the Australian wine industry, responsible for the introduction and cultivation of the majority of Italian varietals in the country. Their Bush Block project tests the limit of dry-growing capabilities in Merbein just north of Mildura. In these extremely hot conditions, bush vines offer a canopy that can help protect the grapes from the brutal heat. These conditions are perfect for Inzolia, a varietal traditionally from Western Sicily which show notes of yellow fruits, rich stonefruit with a chewy waxy mouthfeel.
