Certified Organic Vineyard in McLaren Vale
The certified organic Shiraz vineyard sits on ancient sands over clay and silt stone which dates back to 750 million years. As the winemaker, Phil utilises organic practices throughout the vineyard with a philosophy to work with nature, rather than against it to boost the vineyard’s biodiversity. His goal is to create a vineyard which is a self-regulating, natural ecosystem and all his practices are intended to achieve this.
The fruit is chemical free with minimal additives and coupled with the ancient soils the vines grow in, adds to the terroir which influences the quality and taste of our wine. Using minimal water results in lower fruit yields, but the flavours are more intense and fruit quality is far higher. The working winery produces a portfolio of wines which showcase the high-quality fruit and reflects Mediterranean varieties and styles. Included are an award-winning Shiraz, Grenache and Fortified Shiraz.
