Lovingly tended, single estate vineyard.
Hand picked and pruned, our focus is on smaller yields for optimal quality so that our fruit has outstanding flavour and intensity. The wine making process is minimalist and reflects the unique character of the vineyards terroir.
The fruit was discerningly handpicked and whole bunch pressed. Wild fermentation took place in all French barriques of which 20% were new oak. There was no malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in barrique on lees for twelve months before finishing and bottling.
Our 2018 Chardonnay is vibrant and beautifully balanced with excellent acidity. This wine is more delicate than recent vintages. Citrus and nectarine flavours predominant and the wine has great length and complexity.
A careful selection of the very best barrels, the Edith Chardonnay is vibrant and lively with excellent acidity. The citrus and stone fruits palate and the long and powerful finish are an excellent reflection of the Yal Yal vineyard.
Similarly to the chardonnay, the fruit was carefully selected. The grapes were destemmed but not crushed and then underwent pre-fermentation cold maceration over the first week. Wild fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks which were gently plunged twice a day. The grapes were pressed at dryness, settled and racked to all French barriques, 25% of which were new. After undergoing natural malolactic fermentation, the Pinot was matured in barrique for twelve months before finishing and bottling.
Raspberry, strawberry and red cherry flavours predominate in this aromatic, vibrant wine. The full textured palate is rich and the tannins tight and balanced.
A careful selection of the very best barrels, the Winifred is an aromatic, bright and vibrant wine. Raspberry, plum and red cherry flavours are underpinned by fragrant spice. The long palate is rich and textured.
The fruit was whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented in French oak for 9 months on yeast lees.
Musky green apple and spicy pear underpin the subtle savouriness of this vibrant and lively wine. Lush and soft textured, with excellent acidity, our 2017 Pinot Gris is an excellent example of the exceptional fruit grown on the pristine and beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
Strawberry, orange peel, cranberry and fresh spiced quince flavours support the savoury palate of this vibrant and elegant wine. Lively acidity ensures that this wine is crisp and dry.
