The estate is a boutique vineyard with the vines planted atop a ridge overlooking the region, with Redesdale to the east and Mt Alexander to the west, at an altitude of 330m. To capture even sunlight, our vines run north to south, on north facing hills in well-drained deep red podsolic soils punctuated with sandstone and quartz ridges.
The ‘hilly situation’ provides well-ventilated vines to assist the growing season. The vineyards stretch across ten acres – the majority of which is Shiraz; a variety the region is famed for; and a small proportion of Viognier and Vermentino.
Local winemaker Alan Cooper brought the property to life from vine to wine employing traditional techniques which included gentle crushing, open vat fermentation, and basket pressing, followed by maturation in oak barrels to craft the wines.
Currently, the vineyard produces an abundance of superb grapes which are sold to well-known wineries throughout this wonderful wine-making region and beyond.
