The Story

A most versatile variety, Shiraz can produce greatness across a perplexing breadth of terroir. In our cold climate we sit on the edge of its climatic range and each year we are astonished at its expression of our place.

The fruit is handpicked then partially destemmed into small open fermenters with natural wild ferment in its own time and gentle hand plunging. After a long slow ferment, pressed and gravity transferred to small old oak, natural malolactic ferment occurred with the warmth and new life of spring. Falling bright with gravity our wines are neither fined nor filtered and in some years show an opaque richness as testament to this natural process. Bottled by hand using natural corks, our wine of course contains no animal products or GMOs.
