"The winery that the late Ian Tyrer began in 1977 is still in very good hands with his wife Linda and daughter Kim keeping up the tradition he started of total commitment to the wine industry and this vineyard" Ray Jordan
"Thankyou for sharing your life story with us ,
I agree you certainly have a lot to be very proud of. When you look out your widow of a morning and count your blessings I am sure your father would be looking down at the same view and thanking you and your mother for continuing what he and her commenced. We enjoy your wines and the visit to your winery when we visit your region"
"We have visited your vineyard on a few occasions and purchased your wines. We have just opened a 2000 Muller and it has "blown our socks off". It has aged beautifully and we are extremely sorry that we did not purchase more of it. I will have to fight "better half" to ensure that I get my fair share of the bottle!"
Over the weekend I left a phone message regarding some of your wines that were consumed last Friday evening, but I just wanted to let you know how GOOD they were.
The products concerned were a bottle of 1999 Cab Sav and a bottle of 2000 Shiraz, both of which I purchased approximately 6-7 years ago. A few months previous, I had just joined a wine club and ordered a mixed dozen, one of which was a Galafrey 1996 vintage something. Anyway I rang to ask if there was any more left but alas it was all gone.
It was a ripper!
We've just enjoyed a beautiful salad nicoise for lunch and accompanied it with a bottle of your Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has been languishing in our cellar for a little while.
I have to say that everyone at the table agreed it was the best Sauvignon Blanc we have tasted in a long while. Fruity, yet soft on the palate, it matched our food perfectly.
Dear Linda, Kim and all at Galafrey,
Attached is our wine order for the Christmas season. It is hard to believe that it is 20 years ago this month that we first discovered Galafrey Wines as we neared the end of our year long, round Australia trip. We dropped in at the facility in Albany, tasted some beautiful wine and then dropped up to the vineyard at Mt Barker before continuing the journey homeward. It seems so long ago yet we both remember it clearly. Unfortunately we have not had the opportunity to go back but at least we did get to see Ian and Linda again some years ago at a wine festival in Melbourne. And of course we have continued to enjoy the fruits of your labours!
Thank you for 20 years of service and great wines. Have a wonderful Christmas.
