The vineyard is managed without using  herbicides or insecticides and the use of biological and good cultural practices is maximised to control disease. For the most part only organically permitted fungicides are used to control disease in the vineyard, however, on rare occasions, systemic fungicides are needed.  Our plan is to gradually convert the vineyard to  organic once the vineyard’s immune system is fully developed.

Wine Making

Baume: 13.3   ph 3.28  t.a 6.8   Analysis : pH: 3.3  T/A  6.3 g/l   FSO2 :    26ppm TSo2 : 80ppm Alc:  13.6%v/v Dissolved oxygen: 0.57 mg/L

The fruit is handpicked and whole bunched pressed using a gentle champagne press cycle. No enzymes or sulphur are used at the press tray and the juice is oxidatively handled to get rid of oxidative enzymes early on in the winemaking process. The wine is left at ambient and transferred to barrel with full solids, with minimal sulphur added. Fermentation occurs using wild yeast and it is then left unsulfured to the following summer at which time most of the wine has completed full malo- lactic fermentation .  A  minimal amount of sulphur is added and left in barrel for a total of 6 months where it is racked off gross lees and transferred to tank.  The resulting wine is bottled using no finings and minimal filtration.

Tasting Notes

A complex nose of cut grass, fresh herbs, lemons and honeydew. On the palate, green pear, lemongrass and subtle sweet spices. Fine and firm acid, plenty of flesh with restrained richness.


"This is a superb gris at the rich and complex end of the spectrum. Medium to full yellow, showing some development, it has a layered, ‘worked’ bouquet of ripe fruit, honey, spices, buttered toast and roasted nuts. It’s full-bodied, deep and dense with a lasting aftertaste"  Huon Hooke - 95 POINTS
