Industry stalwart keen to rescue a very precious vineyard

  • Anthony’s amazing career is dotted with other Aussie winemaking legends he's learnt from, mentored or worked alongside. Central to Anthony’s Naked story is his lifelong love affair with the Shiraz grape and his collaboration with longtime friend, colleague and gifted viticulturist Kym Ludvigsen.
  • Both men had always nurtured a desire to do their own thing, seperate to the mass wine companies. Kym’s vast experience led him to discover the very finest Victorian vineyard site: north facing, high altitude, pristine cool-climate, brilliant fertile deep-red soil. He bought it, and planted it in 1995 with a proven, old, local Shiraz clone. “Kym believed his vineyard was as close to heaven as you could get - he loved it.”
  • Before Naked, Anthony had amassed literally hundreds of wine awards including the World’s Best Shiraz for his 2005 Heathcote Shiraz at the Decanter International Wine & Spirit Competition. Then disaster struck. Kym died in a tragic farm accident in 2013. Today, Anthony continues to help Kym’s family by purchasing the premium Shiraz fruit and creating outstanding wine that pays homage to all the traits his dear friend showed - big, generous and full of life.
