Winemaking philosophy

Our central philosophy is a ‘hands-on’ approach to winemaking, with sincere hard work in the winery and most importantly a respect for nature. We believe that quality wine is built through the health and vitality of the soils and vines from which they are born. Like everybody else, these grapes and their homes need constant care and attentive nurturing. So, what does this ensure? Well, the absolute best quality fruits of course! Our low-yielding vines are capable of growing healthy grapes with luscious and fully concentrated flavours. As our winemaker says “I constantly endeavour to ensure that I capture the fruit characteristics of the vineyard, and of the variety that I’m making. I wish to encapsulate those characteristics, refine those characteristics, not overpower them with oak or other winemaking influences, but to let the fruit come forward”.
