Winemaking Philosophy

Our winemaking mission is simple: to craft wines that represent the purest expression of our unique terroir.

We use a high proportion of wild yeasts in ferments. Chardonnay is predominantly whole bunch pressed to obtain the finest juice, Pinot Noir and Shiraz also see some whole bunches in the ferments. High quality, tight-grained French oak barrels are used where appropriate, always as a light seasoning to add complexity without dominating fruit expression.

Our winemaking facility was completed in time for the 2014 vintage and is equipped with state of the art equipment, including:

  • The latest, very gentle pneumatic press
  • The latest gravity operated grape receival equipment system, including sorting table and Vaslin Bucher “Oscillys” destemmer
  • Temperature and humidity control for barrels and packaged wine
  • Our own in-house bottling line.
