Salet Wines is what the French would identify as a "Garagiste" which refers to a group of innovative winemakers in the Bordeaux area of France, which produce small quantities of high quality, bigger, bolder, fruitier wines, and are often with a higher alcohol content and known to be trendy and receive higher ratings. The fruit for the red wines is selected from high quality areas of Southern Australia, and is handpicked and transported by refrigerated vehicle to the cellar, where the grapes are crushed and pressed and then transferred into American and French oak barrels, in an air-conditioned, dark, quiet cellar for up to five years before bottling. Traditional methods are used including room temperature fermentation and wood basket pressing. One of the unique features of Salet wines is that they have a smooth rich structure, and seem never to spoil.
Drive through natural scrub and beautiful spring wildflowers to Point Perpendicular Lighthouse and the spectacular escarpment at Jervis Bay. There is no access to the inside of the Lighthouse. The view from the grounds of the Lighthouse makes this drive worthwhile. The light station was a major coastal light in a network of navigational aids operated and maintained by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. It has now been replaced by a new lighthouse, but the building remains and is of historic significance. The gravel road to the lighthouse may deteriorate during bad weather and at times the road is closed because of Naval gunnery training exercises.
Features of the scenic reserve include the beach, a natural rock pool, creek, scenic walking tracks and picnic facilities. The Abrahams Bosom Reserve has two interesting walks: The first is The Wreck Walk - is a 2.5 kilometre return walk that takes a leisurely one hour, on an easy gradient and takes in the site of the wreck of the S.S. Merimbula which ran aground at 1am on 27 March, 1928. The second is The Trig Walk - which includes the Wreck Walk, is a hillier walk of nine kilometres and takes about three hours return. The feature of this walk is the panoramic view from the Trig Station. Both walks feature coastal seascape scenery of beaches, estuaries, ocean, rock formations, massive sandstone cliffs and headlands. Access to the Beecroft Peninsula is prohibited when Defence Forces training is progress. Contact Shoalhaven Visitors Centre for closure dates before visiting.
