Since the 2010 vintage our winemaking emphasized a minimalist & natural approach, no enzymes used at crush,
indigenous yeast fermentation, no animal based fining products. (vegan friendly) and minimal use of sulphites.
These protocols produce wines with vibrant character that are expressive of their terroir.

John Schreiner review from June 2015 Orange Pinot Gris 2014 Barrel Sample. 90 points
John Kelly has joined the growing number of leading edge winemakers who produce so-called orange or natural wines.
In this case, the Pinot Gris is fermented on the skins with wild yeast and left on the skins for some time.
The result is a bronze wine with flavours of herbs, grapefruit, and dried orange peel. The wine is quite dry, it begs to be aged.
