granite based soils, with coffee stone and quartz on top, on the Western side of
Malmesbury. Vines are physically “high” due to an old philosophy of not
cutting/pruning back old vineyards and avoiding big pruning wounds (which
makes vines receptive to die back and other infections). It is therefore big and tall
bush vines, a very unique sight to see.
Wholebunch pressed, minimal sulphur during short cold settling for the juice
before being racked to barrel for spontaneous fermentation (including malolactic
fermentation). The wines ages from vintage to vintage in two old 300L French
barrels. No enzymes, acid, yeast, nutrients added and we focus on minimal
