Vineyard

Fruit is sourced from Neil and Heather Grace's Home Block, with Pinotage planted in 2015 after a trip to South Africa highlighted the suitability of the variety to the Clare Valley. Alluvial soil over limestone.

Vinification

14 day ferment on skins in open fermenters with gentle hand-plunging. Gently pressed to tank, settled and transferred to two- to three-year-old French oak puncheons, hogsheads and barriques, and matured there for 12 months.

Notable Releases

September 2019

The inaugural vintage of this variety - and the first in our Seasonal Release range - our 2019 Pinotage was a crowd favourite and instant hit in our cellar door. It also took home a silver medal at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show.
