Certified Organic. “Every once in a while, you encounter an extraordinary patch of land, one that varies greatly from the surrounding landscape, one that is impossibly unique in so many ways, this is one such place.” Through many years of planting then working the vineyard and farm an innate connection to the land has formed, a respect for the land and just how much it gives became apparent. Chris planting of the vines on our farm has been done with thoughtfulness and sensitivity to the land, the diversity is such that there are five different plots of vines totally a mere 15 acres, ensuing profoundly structured wine pulsating with energy from this carefully nurtured land. Chris has thought intently about every aspect of the vineyard, the interplay between the pitch of the land, soil, varietal, clones, natural tree lines for acid retention, row orientation and aspect for complexity. The vines are dry farmed allowing the ancient laterite, clay and granite soils to shine through and imbue our finished wines. As a viticulturist Chris’s focus has and always will be the vineyard, it is a simple yet complex philosophy, where respect for the site and natural ecosystem is paramount. From inception he has nurtured the land and the vines. Unwilling to compromise the health of the land, the state of his treasured vines and ultimately the quality of the fruit, he has worked the vineyard completely on his own from day one. No stranger to hard physical labour he hand-prunes every single one of the vines himself, year after year. Apart from the very day the grapes are harvested no one else is ever allowed to touch his vines. He produces wines of purity and complexity, expressive of and deeply rooted to the land. It is an inimitable vision of a person who has focused their life’s work on a single vineyard. Only through viticultural focus and observation of the land and nature over decades can one truly understand and appreciate that complexity is achieved only with the mindful union of land, organic farming, soil, clone and minimal winemaking regimen.
