Artwork

Kate Lewis painted the blue and white crockery that has been passed down from our Grandma, Wilkie, to my parents. I believe Kate’s painting of the heirloom set can only be interpreted as an early bid for their inheritance.

Winemaking

Delicately pressed to neutral French oak in the cool room for a long, slow ferment on full solids. Full malo and frequent batonnage were used to create a nice and round mouthfeel. It was then aged in the oak for 10 months for complexity and those nutty/vanillin notes we were looking for. Unfined, unfiltered, bottled with sulphur. Enjoy!

Vineyard

Owned and managed by Ashley Radcliffe, the vineyard is accredited with the Sustainable Winegrowing Certification, which demonstrates their focus on the environmental and social aspects of their business. The soil is comprised of well-draining sandy loam over limestone. As a nice touch between grower and maker, Ashley personally delivers the fruit from South Australia in a refrigerated truck.
