Tinkler tailors French ties
The death of David Clarke in April was a great loss to the Hunter Valley wine industry, where his Poole’s Rock Winery was a leader. The winery was sold to the Agnew family, owners of Hunter vineyard Audrey Wilkinson, while its original vineyard, in the Hunter’s Broke-Fordwich sub-region, was sold to AGL. So it’s all change and much upheaval. But talented Usher Tinkler remains Poole’s Rock winemaker, by using fruit from the label’s other vineyards, writes Huon Hooke in the Sydney Morning Herald.
