It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine.

Fruit is hand picked off the choicest estate blocks, holistically managed to the most exacting environmentally sustainable standards. All grapes and a small amount of whole bunches, are individually examined over a sorting table, before being tipped into traditional open top fermenters, for three weeks of maceration and vinification through the action of wild indigenous yeasts. Batches are pressed and settled overnight, followed by gravity fill into a selection of 225L French oak casks for eight months maturation at a salutary 16°C.
Vibrant red with garnet hues. Elegant Pinot fruit bouquet, red currants, cherry and raspberry over subtle spice and forest floor. Medium bodied, building weight across the palate, richly textured, long and fine, supported by firm yet gentle tannins. A treat alongside European inspired recipes and all things duck.
