There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours.

Pruning begins in earnest at Yering Station as the vineyard team take aim at providing optimal sunlight for the berries while limiting crop yields to produce a more intense wine. Parcels of Pinot Noir clones MV6 and 777 are selectively harvested and hand picked off mature vines up to fourteen years of age, planted to choice Yarra Valley sites. Fruit is sent to a mix of open and rotary fermenters and treated to a week or two of skin contact macerations before inoculation to cultured yeast type Lalvin BGY. Batches are fermented to dryness over the course of a week or two, followed by completion of malolactic and nine months maturation in a selection of seasoned and new 228 litres French oak barrels.
