Quality in the Vineyards

Our winemaking team strongly believe that specific ‘Terroir’is fundamental to the production of premium quality wine. The Estates varying south easterly and south westerly slopes lie between 120m and 270m above sea level and are cooled by the coastal breezes. We use natural pesticides to retain the areas Biodiversity and have large areas left out to encourage natural birdlife and indigenous plant species to thrive. As well as achieveing IPW and BWI status – we hope now to be ISO 9022 by 2014. With the purchase of Mount Rozier by the Gabb family in 2011, new plantings of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay have added to the existing blocks. We have selected rootstocks and clones of the highest quality that are most suitable for our microclimate. Rigorous pruning ensures very low yields – with our business model based on 3 tons per acre.
