"Though Alwyn Corban has an impressive pedigree in oenology, he says it was his father, Alex, whom he has to thank for laying the foundations of his great success.: “He didn’t reap the benefits but he did the groundwork for our generation to build on.” Indeed the Corban’s were pioneers in this regard, deciding to plant on this less obviously appealing land during the 1980s. Some of the land sat on an old racecourse (hence the name ‘Stables’ for Alwyn’s most popular range) and he also planted vines on the nearby renowned Glazebrook estate which he latterly came to own. His vineyards for the Glazebrook and Stables range sit on free-draining soils with less fertility that encourage water stress. This forces the vines to focus their energies on the grapes rather than the leaves which, in turn, leads to powerfully concentrated flavours."View All Wines by this Winemaker
