Development of the vineyard commenced in 1998 and the first vines were planted in January 1999.

The vineyard is situated on an erosion delta made up of deep granite sands and red ironstone clays. Only varieties which achieve their maximum potential in our climate are grown. The average rainfall is around 600 mm per annum and the climate is similar to the northern Rhone Valley region of France.

The varieties which have been planted are shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, viognier, nebbiolo and merlot. Cane and bunch thinning ensure low tonnages of premium quality grapes and organic sprays are predominantly used.
