As purists we have always believed that to produce a wine of true character, it is essential that nature be the primary winemaker. Our farm is blessed with cool breezes during the hot summer months and stony, clay-rich soil, giving our wines their unique personality and style. A philosophy of minimal intervention and environmentally conscious farming methods are just some of our secret ingredients.

Grapes are selected from 2 plots of 5 hectares in Greywacke soils at 450 metres above sea level on south west facing slopes. The vines of an average age of 15 years, are planted at a density of 5000 vines per hectare and trained in the Cordon method.

Grapes are soft-crushed and the must chilled overnight before fermentation at 14-16°C for 20 days in stainless steel tanks. The wine will spend about 7 months on the lees in tanks, after which it is fined, filtered and bottled.
