Grown in a vineyard that sets almost right on the ocean at Cape Kidnappers, this wines fruit experiences a season of warm summers tempered by a cooling sea breeze. This area got its name from a time when Captain Cook first discovered these islands down under and while his ship was moored in this bay his cabin boy was kidnapped by the locals and later returned thus the name Kidnappers Bay.
