We specalise in cool climate Shiraz only, and make no other wine variety. This is driven by a singular passion for this grape variety and all efforts are therefore concentrated to this cause

A tiny (1/2 acre) vineyard planted in 1993 on the Bellarine Peninsula. We specialise exclusively in cool climate Shiraz.

Five separate clones are blended in French oak for twelve months.

Care and attention to the smallest detail in the growing, pruning and wine making are the trademarks of this vineyard.
