Over the past 13 years, we have always been overwhelmed by the presence of our Caveat vineyard in the Strathbogie Ranges. A supposedly sealed road that wanders north from Yea climbing to the elevated granite soils that sit 600m above sea level. Generally 5 degrees cooler than the valley floor, this small vineyard is surrounded not by other vineyards but rather unforgiving grazing land. With the often challenging conditions of 2016 (heat and drought) we were once again curious to observe the resilience of these wonderful vines planted in 1983. Unirrigated, they are unrushed and once again delivered fruit of pure dimensions, stunning granite soil influence on the back palate holding line and offering great presence. - Winery Note
It's a funny time to be making wine in Australia. For many, technological advancements no longer define our wines, which bring us back to the age old question ‚– what makes our patch of dirt unique?
And this is our journey. We are committed to seeking out sites that we deem to be strong and unusual. Often these vineyards were unloved when discovered, however through listening to and learning from the sites themselves, we have been able to bring back the health of the vineyards and share their character through the wines we are now making.
We are surprised that we have found sites with such clarity and beauty. And as a result, this very small and slow project is teaching us a lot about our land and our place within it.
