The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Cate and Colin Arnold purchased the former Patrick Creek Vineyard (planted exclusively to pinot noir in 1989) in 2001. The vineyards, situated among the patchwork fields of Sassafras to the south, and the white sands of the Port Sorell Peninsula to the north, now total 23ha: pinot noir (14 clones) remains the bedrock of the plantings, with other varieties including chardonnay, pinot gris, riesling and sauvignon blanc. Son Justin has assumed winemaking responsibilities in the new 100-tonne winery, having previously plied his trade in the Yarra Valley (Coldstream Hills), Margaret River (Devil's Lair) and Napa Valley (Etude), and his wife Alicia runs the cooking school and cellar door. Exports to Japan (2018).
