Estate Vineyards / AVA
The vineyard site was carefully chosen and is widely regarded as some of the best viticultural land in the district; red soils with a north / north east aspect on sunny slopes where frost risk is minimal. In 1997 we began transforming pasture into vines by establishing a nursery to produce our own rooted cuttings sourced from the region’s top producers.
Our background in the scientific field of Plant Biology led us to experiment with some unusual grape varieties. The vineyard has been described by James Halliday as a “Joseph’s coat”, comprised of the white varieties Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and a small amount of Viognier
