The vineyard is certified Biodynamic (certification #11587) with Australian Certified Organic. We have quite a practical approach, with our philosophy focused around healthy and alive soil, which involves no use of synthetic herbicides or fungicides, use of compost and biodynamic preparations, use of sheep in winter to graze under vine, and minimal mechanical soil disruption.

This wine is comprised of Grenache from our dry-farmed bush vines, planted in 1946. These vines rest in ancient sands that overlie North Maslin geology. The source blocks were 23, 24, 25 and 29 on our single-vineyard estate. Hand-picked and mechanically sorted with 50% whole berries retained and the remaining fruit destemmed. We cold soaked the fermentation tanks for 5-6 days until the onset of a wild yeast fermentation. The open fermenter's underwent a careful regime of plunging and rack and returns. No pressings were used. The wine was kept on yeast lees for 10 months, in 100% older French oak. No fining occurred, just filtration.
