Mark Haisma is an Aussie who cut his wine making teeth over a decade of working with Dr Bailey Carrodus at Yarra Yering in Victoria crafting some of Australia's classiest wines. He arrived in Burgundy in 2009 and is one of three Aussie negociants currently bottling wine under their own labels. Mark has firm views about how to make the best from the fruit he manages to buy from willing vineyard owners: his wines have beautiful fruit of great clarity but no lack of vineyard expression. They are easy to enjoy. We love them!

N.B. This is the very highest vineyard in Volnay, where the soils are thin and poor.
Floral touches adorn the snappy-dark plum fruit. There's an intriguing and rather delicious hint of bacon fat to the aromas, that take in fresh black cherries, too. This has a saline minerality from the off, leading to cool, limestone structure. It offers sustained and very direct grip. What a lovely thing! Very fresh wine with a seriously busy death. Bowes Wine original note
"Delicate aroma on the nose that seems more Morey to me, peppery and floral. Sweet on the palate, charming and ripe but also completely fresh. No sign of the 30% wood because of the intensity of the fruit. Tannins are compact and smooth. Very accomplished wine." Julia Harding MW
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
