Mary McAvoy a native of Drumgath County Down Northern Ireland settled in Australia 20 years ago and more recently with her husband David they purchased boutique winery Tallagandra Hills near Canberra. Mary is a cousin of Milestone owner Tom McAvoy and it is fitting that Mary chose Milestone as their sole outlet for their wines in Ireland.
The Good Soldier celebrates the coming together of two Australian favourites – Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon – producing a full bodied wine with rich flavor and a bold personality. The Good Soldier works hard in often unforgiving conditions, has a song in its heart and a strength of character. It blends the dark cherry flavours of our cool climate shiraz with the full-bodied savoury fruit tones of cabernet sauvignon.
