James' Review

The micro, patchwork-quilt vineyard was first planted by Philip Lobley in 1995 with pinot noir, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. In 2008 nebbiolo, semillon, sauvignon blanc and moscato giallo (or gold muskateller, thought to be a version of muscat a petits grains) were added. These are high-density plantings and, with shoot and crop thinning, yield is kept to 600800g per vine. The red wines are wild yeast-fermented and neither filtered nor fined; the Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc (purchased) is whole bunch-pressed and wild yeast-fermented. The 2008 plantings were destroyed by the Black Saturday bushfires, and nebbiolo and moscato giallo have been replanted; 80% of the older wines recovered thanks to the good spring/summer rainfall of 10.
