Sharing This Place
The soils are a distillation of the landscape and all who’ve lived here; from the earliest indigenous owners, farmers, alluvial and shallow shaft miners, loners, battlers, families, academics, artists, vignerons, winemakers.
Now we are handpicking pinot noir grapes, which are carefully made into wine which truly represents the seasons of each vintage.
Every year, after pruning, through budburst to harvest, delightful conical bunches reliably take form on these twenty year old vines. The grapes draw from deep foundations, the product of a living ecosystem, including the people who lightly tend… and watch each vintage unfold.
The winemaking intent is as pure and simple as possible: to create expressive wines with balance, harmony and longevity.
It’s a considered approach. In a particularly low intervention way, we’re striving for balance: at this place, in the vineyard, and in the winery.
