PHILOSOPHY OF WINE MAKING
We assess the quality and commercial acceptance of each wine annually. If the product can be improved, we modify viticultural and production techniques to achieve desired outcomes. Through experience and continued experimentation, we create and maintain a production blueprint for each wine. This starts in the vineyard with site selection, rootstocks, variety, clones, trellis design and orientation. Harvesting is carried out on a block by block basis with selection of individual bunches where necessary. The fruit is delivered quickly to the winery. In the winery, our blueprint gives a framework for decision making, without being inflexible or overly prescriptive. We keep it as simple as possible to ensure the desired outcome.
