"This Year, Galafrey ascended on the wings of a number of wines that showcased the strenght and vitality of this dry-grown Vineyard in Mount Barker. While the winery has been around for some time. the vines ( planted in late 1970s) are reaching a maturity that is starting to show in the wines. Winemaker/owner Kim Tyrer's continuation and evolution of style has yielded wines of poise and line." Erin Larkin
