Established in 1992, the six acre vineyard comprising of Shiraz , Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and some Merlot has a north and west aspect on granitic soils at an elevation of 220 metres above sea level. In its early development stages the vineyard was watered to encourage establishment . Subsequent soil practises and mulching has allowed it to sustain itself without watering since 1998 and it is now a dry land vineyard. Hot, dry summers and warm autumn conditions punctuated by cool evening temperatures (due to our proximity to the mountains) allow lengthy ripening periods to produce wines displaying unique cool climate flavours which continue to develop and intensify The 20 tonne crop is handpicked by our ever reliable team of local pickers and promptly processed at the winery. All of the must (grapeskin, seeds and stalks) ejected from the crusher is recycled as compost and mulch
