Djinta Djinta (Willy Wagtail from indigenous origins) is a 7 acre vineyard in South Gippsland, located in a natural amphitheatre the hills between Leongatha and Korumburra. Vines were first planted in 1986 by the previous owners, but were in a state of neglect until the Harleys acquired the property in 1991. Peter Harley has formal training in wine science from Charles Sturt University and has favoured a low-technology, low input approach in his desire to make "organic olde world" wines with character. In most cases he believes that blending grape varieties gives the best result in terms of a wine with interest & complexity, hence the large range of varieties grown for a small vineyard (sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, semillon, marsanne, roussane and viognier). Gippsland has high rainfall & vigorous soils (acidic clay loam), leading Peter to adopt a lyre trellis to open up the canopy and enhance fruit ripening.
