The Phantom Red Blend Three 2011

Very few know who the Phantom is. Every year he leaves his mark on the McLaren Vale region through a unique blend - a blend of both red wine, and character. A master of disguise, he remains anonymous, letting the wine he puts forward speak on his behalf. He spends his days watching over the region undetected, sourcing the next secret blend recipe. The blend will change year-to- year, the experience will remain the same.

Luna de Fresa Tempranillo (Rosé) 2016 - 6 pack Special

We have been growing Tempranillo with passion for the last 16 years. In that time Luna Roja and Luna Temprana have arisen and now our Rosé completes the trilogy. The full moon in June is known as the ‘Strawberry Moon’ to the Algonquin tribes of New England, appearing at the time of the strawberry harvest. Luna de Fresa translates as strawberry moon. At Gemtree, we let the moon influence our harvesting time too. Through her firmly-held belief in biodynamics, Melissa grows beautifully balanced Tempranillo fruit. From this Mike has crafted Gemtree’s Rosé; bright, delicious and brimming with strawberry aromas and flavours.

Ernest Allan Shiraz 2013 - 6 Pack Special

Ernest Allan was a market gardener and the grandfather of Melissa and Andrew Buttery. Ernest Allan Shiraz reflects the true character of our premium organic shiraz blocks and the sustainable, chemical free farming that Ernest used to grow his produce so many years ago. This wine is literally Ernest - honest and true.

About us

Company details

The story of the Gemtree has grown to mean so much more than a fable shared with the Buttery and Brown children. It came from Melissa, Andrew and Mike’s passion for the environment and acknowledgement of the importance of the vineyard ecosystem. It symbolises everything that the brand stands for.

This is our Gemtree story…
There was once a tree. Not the tallest tree, nor the oldest tree, but a tree that had put its roots in just the right part of the paddock. Here the soil was deep and layered - sometimes hard and rocky, elsewhere soft and sandy - and the wind had just enough room to move, and even the rain - when it was kind enough to visit - would fall evenly and gently.

Because of its favoured position, the grasses grew tall against its trunk, and the wild flowers were easily encouraged to grow closely around it, and the insects and birds that looked to trees for shelter and for vantage, eagerly moved in.

One day a farmer approached the tree and wondered: “You do not grow the strongest, nor the fastest, so why is it that you grow the best fruit?”

The tree let the answer whisper through the wind in its branches: “If I am shown a patient mind and a gentle hand, if I am left to follow the rhythms of my seasons – to rest in Winter; to revive in Spring; to make busy in Summer; and to provide in Fall – then I can offer fruit that tastes not just of the ground upwards, but also of the sky downwards, and of everything around me.”

The farmer thought to himself: “This is truly a Gemtree – it takes only what it can give back to the land, it contributes to its surroundings, and it provides for those that live around it.”
