About Mocandunda Wines
Mocandunda is an aboriginal word from the Ngadjuri people meaning rocky outcrop on top of a hill.
It was on one such rocky hill that three men with Clare Valley dirt in their veins have established a vineyard that brings all their experience and local knowledge into singular, crystal clear vision. The vineyard was planted in 1998 by Hartley Heinrich, the property’s owner, Rodger Ackland, one of Clare’s most experienced viticulturalists and founder of Mt Horrocks Wines and Mick Faulkner, a leading South Australian agronomist.
The key focus of Mocandunda is unashamedly Riesling, and their wines are a celebration of this most noble of varietals, from an elegant bubbles, to their classic crisp, linear Clare dry styles, to an opulent and simply delicious cane cut dessert wine. That being said, their small range of reds merits serious consideration with a complex yet juicy Merlot the undoubted hero.
