Our philosophy is to craft single vineyard wines of great purity and character, reflecting our site and the season in which it was grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing that expression.

2022 was a vintage of tiny yields, the lowest in our history.  The total crop was down 70% on our long term average, we averaged 700kg per acre.  this was due to severe storms during flowering.  However, the positive is the wines are of exceptional quality - they are intense, with incredible balnce and persistence.

Winemaker Notes
Hand picked between 4-9 March. Some parcels were crushed and some whole bunch pressed. The juice was transerred to 500 litre French oak barrels for natural fermentation. A 25% portion of which were new. The wines were aged on lees in oak for a further 11 months, prior to estate bottling in late January 2023.
Tasting Notes
The potential of this wine is apparent from the first time you look at it. The colour is super bright with green tints, the aromas are fresh, pure and intense. Grapefruit, citrus blossom and a hint of lime, with a lovely flinty note underlying. There is a nice layer of almond meal and cashew nut from the barrel fermentation. The palate is intense with layers of deeply textured and concentrated fruit. White stone fruit and pithy grapefruit weave through a tightly wound and piercingly intense mineral finish that goes on and on. Cellar for at lease five years, the wine will go well past 10 years.
