Our Wines are made with the deepest respect of tradition and small batch wine making, many wine making techniques are used to highlight the varietal and regional characteristics, just to mention some, handpicking, gently mechanically destemmed, berry sorting, open fermentation, whole bunch fermentation, hand plunged and pump over, gentle pressing, then matured in a range of oak formats
Our philosophy is low touch and natural. The results are concentrated wines that are a great expression of the Heathcote region.
Our wines are made on site by us, we manage the whole process from vine to bottle, we grow it, we make it and we love it.
The Naked Run with friends is a classic blend of the Rhone Valley whites, picked early to maintain natural acidity with these textural white varieties, usually allowed to go through wild fermentation using the natural yeasts found in the vineyard.
The spending a short period in new French oak barriques, a simple style displaying a wonderful fruit driven texture of stone fruit, orange blossom, floral jasmine and a hint of ginger and spice.
A wonderful expression of a Heathcote Sangiovese.The fruit is from our Lewis Road Vineyard and the wine is made using traditional methods. Delightful confectionary aromas with sour cherry, raspberry fruit characters and herbal notes on the palate.It finishes with clean, crisp acidity and chalky tannins. A perfect complement to Italian food.

The Gwen Shiraz is our multi regional flagship, sourced from our 3-vineyard sites in Heathcote, named after Richie's mother, the aim is to make a wine that reflects her character, elegant, stylish, forgiving, nurturing and bold enough to be treated with respect.
The concept of complexity through diversity regains supreme here, 3 different terroirs, some early picks for natural acidity, some later picks for tannin and ripeness, a range of small batch techniques, whole bunch, extended fermentation, natural and cultured yeasts, A range of oak formats and flex cubes. 20% new French oak, the outcome is an approachable full bodied, mouth filling, fruit driven Shiraz with dark plum, blackberry and cherry fruit character, spice and fine tannins, The Gwen has an enough weight to say I'm serious and delicious without being overcooked. Like all good wines it would benefit from 8 - 10 years cellaring.
