Wine specs

Vineyards

This registered Single Vineyard is planted in South Westerly facing blocks on the upper reaches of the farm in sandy, gravelly and highly weathered soils with a clay substructure. This aspect ensures that these vineyards are cooled during the summer months by the prevailing winds off of the sea.

Obsessive attention to detail and adherence to the best viticulture practices is observed. Respect for the vineyard drives our winemaking process

Wine specs

Winemaking
