Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands.

The vines of Les Lys are planted to a unique clay slope on ancient Kimmeridgian subsoils. Grapes are all picked by hand into small 13Kg cases followed by a closer scrutiny over the sorting table. Bunches are treated to a brief 1½ to 2 hours pneumatic pressing for gentle separation of gross solids. Juices are lightly settled for the retention of light solids, half the batches are filled to a selection of well seasoned oak barrels for a completely natural course of ferments and spontaneous malolactic. The balance is vinified in fermenters to retain freshness of fruit character and character of the vineyard. The finished wine is matured for a year or more, partly on fine lees to infuse textural complexity.
