Cool climate Pinot Noir in its natural environment.

It was a fairly hair-raising trip in the ute down the mountain yesterday with the wine club orders but we made it. Not in time for the long weekend but for the Winter weeks ahead in front of the πŸ”₯

So. Much. Snow. ❄❄❄
.
40cm deep. Hoping to get vehicle access in the next few days so we can wine club orders out. Till then - please excuse our snow spam.
.
We mature most of our wines for 2 Winters prior to bottling. People often ask why. Our cold Winters enable natural cold... stabilisation of wines meaning we don't have to add chemicals to do the job. #minimalinterventionwine

Snow day ❄❄❄
.
Lots of snow dumping at the winery. It's a beautiful Winter wonderland. The light it gives, the crunchy sound underfoot. Never gets old.
.
And you know you have the best friend/photographer when she calls you to say she has hiked kilometers up Mount ...Canobolas at first light to get the πŸ“Έ

Last fruit for Vintage 21 πŸ‡
.
#V21 has been a long one with a significant (and nerve wracking) rain delay in the middle
.
The winery team are a little weary & despite having a few more weeks of plunging & pressing of reds to go are in good spirits & have made vintage ...such a pleasure. They are the A team!
.
There is nothing better than having our final fruit to arrive being perfectly ripe Pinot Noir. Sourcing fruit from some of the highest & latest ripening vineyards in the #orangewineregion means we can maximise the cool climate flavour, texture & complexity the fruit naturally brings. It's now our job to make a wine deserving of its quality (the fun part) 🍷

Easter Monday Shiraz.
.
Picking the Shiraz vineyard we've been managing for the last few years this morning. It's been a big haul working through Easter but seeing fruit quality this good with perfect ripeness given the dump of rain we had a couple of weeks back is good for the ...soul.
.
Happy Easter πŸ‡πŸ°

It might not look as picturesque as grapes in a vineyard but we're pretty excited about this new machine.
.
This is our new (to us) bottling line. Thought we'd give it it's pilot run on a rainy vintage day. It helps us close our production loop. We can now make our wines ...& bottle them under the same roof - when & how we want.
.
It's these little one percenters we'll keep working at to push exceptional quality in our wines.
